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.

-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.
Western, Antonio Cantafora -Year: 1975 -Country: Italy -Who in clothing: Willy ~11, others -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low+ ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating: ****** -Comment: Renato Cestiè in dark (blue) knickers with suspenders and a cap. Also other boys and girls.
I found a headshot of him and wasn’t sure if it might be bib overalls and had to search for the movie. I have briefly checked it and it’s very interesting. I have to recheck it at slow speed. I only found a man in shortalls.
Also soon on my pigtails blog. English title: We Are No Angels.
He also starred in Si può fare… amigo (Halleluja…Amigo), rating 4 , in Cure (1973) and also some few other Westerns like “Il ritorno di Zanna Bianca” and Cosi Sia.
Rating at least 5-6 for now. Typical comedy Western.
Western series, 60 ep, Michael Ansara -Year: 1959-1960 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Clint ~14, girl ~9 ? -Available on DVD: yes *
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: At least 14 or 15 yo Don Grady in s1e14 in beige pants and a dark vest. Also a girl in long pigtails in s1e20 (also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~7).
Maybe more younger actors?
Rating 5-6 for now.
There are DVD-R offers, maybe not officially released, or PD?
Christian TV drama/Western. Novel by Janette Oke -Year: 2006 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys ~6, 11, girls -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: low+ -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: Some boys in cotton bib overalls but few and brief scenes only. And also girls and grown up’s in Western clothes. Nice school scenes.
Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5 as well.
Part of the “Love Comes Softly” movie series, rating 3-5. For more infos about this and other movies, please visit my other blog. Also soon on my pigtails blog.
Another interesting Janette Oke series is “When Calls the Heart”, but this is set in 1910 though Western town setting.
Western series, 452 ep, host Ronald Reagan -Year: 1952-1970 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girls ~10-15, women ? -Available on DVD: yes, partly
–B&W or color: b&w, color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -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.
Family film -Year: 2002 -Country: USA -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 ?)
