-Comment: Some (teen) boys, girls and women in Western clothes.

I don’t know the complete series. There were many supporting actors. I only found some few kids including 12 yo Mitch Vogel (“Bonanza”) in s18e4 (color) and Donna Corcoran and others in s2e6 Dear Teacher (pics 2-4). By coincidence I later found a boy (Danny Flower ?) in bib overalls in s13e9 (pic 1, more pics and infos soon on my overalls blog).

Pic 5 showing a young lady in a Cowboy hat in s1e15, maybe Sheila Ryan?

Rating at least 5-6 for now. More episodes needs to be rechecked. Only partly on DVD.

-Who in clothing: boys, girl
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low+ ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: At least one girl and a lady in beige bib overalls, (on my other blog, rating 5) and some boys in jeans and Cowboy hats. A very young boy at the beginning in light brown chaps. Also ladies and of course men wearing Cowboy hats. Some few riding scenes (not in overalls).

Nice but I think a typical ranch/rodeo movie set in Texas. Both pics from the trailer.

I have to recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting. Probably not worth buying on DVD? Starring Jacob Fisher as Buddy (pic 2 on the right ?)

But for now even rating 6-7.

-Comment: Some boys and girls in typical western clothes (pants with suspenders). Pic 1 from s1e10 (maybe showing Jimmy Baird (“Fury”)?). In s1e12 there are kids at school. Pic soon on my pigtails blog (rating 4).

Robert aka Bobby Crawford in bib overalls in s5e3 (soon on my bib overalls blog, rating ~6-7). Don Grady in s4e10+11.

I don’t know all episodes but assume rather few scenes of younger actors.

Rating 4 for s1e10+12, probably higher rating for the others. I thought, I already had an entry.

At least one more Western scene in s5e1. A girl sitting in bib overalls. Taken from my other blog (rating 6 next to some other girls and also a boy).

-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Carlos ~13, boy, girl
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: medium- ?
-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-Comment: Marc Cavell (1939-2004) as Mexican boy Carlos in typical Mexican clothes (pic 2). Also at least a younger boy (maybe Erik Nelson) and girl (Patsy Weil ?) in at least 2 scenes. Pictured at the end.

Has been aired last week, but I missed most of it. I don’t like the Mexican teen boy in black, curly hair. The younger kids are more of interest.

But rather few scenes (of the younger kids).

So rating 3-4 only.

Update: Winnetous Rückkehr

winnetousrueckkehr5winnetousrueckkehr4

2 more pics, showing Timmy without the hat, looking much different, and also another Quaker boy and some girls. Pic 1 from the beginning of part 2.

Very good movie. I wish, I had recorded it. Obviously even worth buing on DVD, but I think, I’ll wait for the next broadcasting. I didn’t watch the long movie carefully. Handsome actors, also the Indian boys, I usually don’t like. Good plot.

Rating 7(-8) was correct. Main entry at
