This is my 4th blog about feature films, TV series and documentaries with clothes of mainly kids and teens in Western movies. Have fun. You will find here informations, trailer videos, low-res images and personal comments/ratings. You will not find here complete videos, download links, shopping links etc.
Western TV series starring Guy Madison -Year: 1951-1958 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Ted, Sue -Available on DVD: yes -B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium- ? -Rating: 4/10 ? -Rating:**** -Comment: Two kids in s2e3 (The Lady School Teacher, 1951), probably darkhaired Pat Mitchell as Ted and blonde Isa Ashdown. Rather few scenes of them and I think not even school scenes.
Western series, 78 ep Jock Mahoney -Year: 1951-53 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girl, women -Available on DVD: partly
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: At least a pigtailed girl, some boys and a lady in good Western clothes. But I don’t know all episodes.
Pic 1 from s2e14 maybe showing 9 yo Sherry Jackson. She also starred in s1e16. Another pic of the girl riding is here
Pic 2 from s3e13 probably showing 22 yo Jean Willies with a black hat.
Many supporting actors, also some (teen) boys including Tommy Ivo (in jeans and a white hat ?, maybe also riding in s1e2) and Mickey Little in s2e24. I have to do more research. Especially Tommy Ivo is handsome and also did other Westerns.
Western series, 200 ep, partly b&w -Year: 1957-1962 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girls, women -Available on DVD: partly
–B&W or color: b&w, color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low+ ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: At least 4 boys and one girl and one lady of interest.
Pic 1 showing Gina Gillespie in long pigtails and a long bordeaux red dress in ep s6e8 (1961), pigtails blog, rating 8. Earlier seasons are in b&w.
Pic 2 from s2e17. Probably showing Paul Engle. Also in a black or dark jacket.
Pic 3 a young blonde boy in s2e11 (pants with suspenders, not overalls). Very few and brief scenes, unknown actor.
Unpictured: a lady in s2e13 with a Cowboy hat. A boy in s2e17, pants with suspenders, Bobby Clark in s1e12 in a dark suit, hat and string tie. And an old man in blue jeans overalls in s2e8.
I don’t know all episodes and might miss some good scenes/actors.

–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium- ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: Ryan Wynott in pants with suspenders, a red shirt and a Cowboy hat. Also at least a girl (Jada Facer), man, woman and many others wearing Western clothes and hats.
By coincidence even a Christmas movie. And very nice Western setting.
I only have checked it briefly. Kids don’t appear that often.
Part of the Love Comes Softly movie series. Here I only have
Love’s Abiding Joy (rating 5) but this movie here has even better Western scenes. More movies on my bib overalls blog.

-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium- ?
-Comment: At least 2 boys in Western clothes including Cowboy hat and yellow string tie. Also at least one boy riding and at least one older girl in light blue jeans sitting on a fence (ep 2). One boy is ~10 yo Canadian Johnny Washbrook, probably on the right.
I don’t know all episodes. Pic 2 from ep 5, pic 1 from ep 4
Rating 5-6 for now.
Much better is of course the 1943 movie starring Roddy McDowall (coming soon). Thanks Jody for his comment and albums and other suggestion.
Disney-Land s21e4+e5 -Year: 1974 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girls, woman -Available on DVD: VHS only ?
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 3/10 ? -Rating:*** -Comment: At least 2 younger boys (one blonde, one darkhaired), a teen boy and a girl in different clothes with belts. Should be set in the 1860s but some clothes rather look like the 1970s. Starring Jeff East and Kim Richards as kids.
I don’t know the complete movie, yet. There’s also an (unrelated ?) 1949 movie (also colorized available) called “The Big Cat” which is much more western like but set in 1933, but I haven’t found kids in there.
Rating 3-4 for now. Novel by Lew Dietz (A Seal called Andre).
Kids TV shows, 31 ep -Year: 1968-1972 (1970) -Country: The Netherlands -Who in clothing: boys, girls, woman -Available on DVD: yes *
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: often * -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: Several kids, I think mainly girls, maybe around 7-14 (of the mixed kids choir Kinderkoor Henk van der Velde and also other choirs) and also a woman in Cowboy/Western clothes. Obviously showing ep 18 (s2e11, 1970) which was about the Wild West.
During research for my other blogs, I stumbled upon this show, I never heard of. The 1st show featuring kids. There is even a DVD but only 3 complete episodes survived along some other fragments.
Family series Meredith Henderson -Year: 1996-2000 -Country: Canada -Who in clothing: Matt ~13, Shirley 14, woman -Available on DVD: no
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: low -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: Bill Switzer as ranch boy Matt in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s3e2 (1998), also Meredith Henderson (pic 2 on the left) often wear a fedora and at least one women in a flat Western hat in s2e11.
Good family series. Also starring John White and Brendan Fletcher (nice haircut) but I think not wearing hats nor Western clothes.
I think few Western or ranch scenes and mainly focussed on the girl Shirley.
