-I own: yes
-Clothing occurence: medium-
-Rating: 3/10 *
-Rating: ***
-Comment: Several boys (and maybe girls as well) as Cowboys and Indians, I think mainly Indians and some few like Mexicans including this one. Most scenes at the beginning. Also many boys in Lederhosen (other blog, rating 8).

I even bought this on DVD.

I don’t like these scenes of Indians. In colour might be much better, It’s also not a Western.

So rating ~3 only.

Comment: At least this teen boy, probably ~15 yo Tommy Ivo in dark (black) jeans and a black Cowboy hat riding. Obviously very few scenes if any more. But handsome boy, nice jeans and riding.

Comment: At least Dennis Ross and Lonnie Thomas in jeans and Cowboy clothes/hat. Pic 2 from the end.

By coincidence I found this some time ago on archive.org, but don ‘t remember much and only checked this briefly.

Interesting ranch movie set in the early 1950s but some scenes look like a Western. Nice bedroom.

Rating ~4-5 for now. Kids are quite young.

Comment: At least this uncredited boy in blue or grey pants (no suspenders) also at least a lady with a white Cowboy hat, Barbara Britton and I think Dorothy Hart as well.

I found this some time ago but don’t remember much. I assume very few good scenes.

Rating 3-4 only. Needs to be rechecked more carefully.

Comment: Knut Mahlke (“Die Trapp-Familie”) and Michael Gebühr as young Cowboys with beige Cowboy hats and nice light colored, maybe yellow Western shirts with shiny parts.

I don’t know this movie and only found some pics. One showing Michael Gebühr is this

http://www.cinema.de/stars/star/michael-gebuehr,1595325,ApplicationStar.html

Knut Mahlke looking similar but even more handsome. I assume rather few scenes in a Circus. The movie is not on DVD. I hope for a soon broadcasting or upload. English title: The Dark Star.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: Some boys in tight blue jeans and white Cowboy hats, and Scarlett Johansson and Ty Hillman in bib overalls (more pics and infos on my overalls blog, rating 5, mainly the girl, very few scenes of the boy). Also at least one lady (Kristin Scott Thomas) wearing a straw Cowboy hat. Of course riding scenes, but maybe not with boys.

Has been aired some days ago, but I almost missed it completely. I think rather few good scenes (of the boys). Best scenes probably at around 1h02.

Nice ranch movie. Rating 5-6 for now. Needs to be rechecked the next broadcasting.

Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: At least redhaired Stephen Liss (I think in pic 2 with a cap) and another blonde, I think uncredited boy (brown vest and pants). To me it’s not a real Western, as obviously set in the mid 1920s (due to the cars).

I think rather few good scenes, but I have to recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting. Pic 2 reminds me of The Music Man (1962).

Rating 3-4 only.

Comment: 2 boys in bib overalls (other blog rating 5, soon to be updated), most notable one this boy in faded bibs and a straw hat at the beginning, the other in dark overalls but very briefly shown and some other boys in pants, some with suspenders.

All names are unknown/uncredited. Rather few scenes of the boys.

So rating 4-5 only.

-Comment: Jake Johnson in light brown bib overalls. But also in pants with suspenders and a Cowboy hat and different shirts. There’s also Madison Davenport in a nice green dress. Pic 2 from the trailer, other pics from behind the scenes (but obviously similar in the movie).

From my bib overalls blog, currently rating 4 (soon be updated).

I don’t know/don’t remember this complete movie, but it’s obviously nothing special and the boy sometimes looks very young. Needs to be rechecked completely. Update: Obviously much better than thought. And now completely checked.

Rating 4 for now only. Rating at least 5.

Sorry, I’m running out of movies and I’m quite busy. So I can only post occasionally.

-Comment: Another interesting movie, starring Tommy Ivo and also several other (at least 13) boys and teen boys, including 15 yo Tommy Cook, 11 yo Johnny Calkins, 9 yo Teddy Infuhr, The Robert Mitchell Boy Choir (as Ranch boys) and others. Also at least 1 woman wearing a Cowboy hat.

Nice ranch and riding scenes and also showing chaps. Most boys wearing jeans, chaps and hats.

Rating at least 6-7. But I only have checked it briefly. Unfortunatley the movie is in b&w.

There are different DVDs available, I can’t say about each image quality. At least some are DVDr. PD Movie. 68 minutes and 54 minutes cut. So watch out.
