-Comment: 10 yo Francesco Blasio (probably in jeans with a white hat, see link on the left) and several kids including most or all of the Western actors (including a gang of teens up to at least 15 yo and girls). Most or all in jeans. A 9 yo girl Sarah Lou Duriez (maybe daughter of the director or even sister) as Lou Lou. Obviously both modern and western setting (probably much more western scenes). Rodeo scenes and looks like also someone standing in brown chaps.

A very rare movie. No entry on IMDb. There should be a VHS, but not sure if it was officially released for the public. OOP anyway. The only good pics I found are here

I don’t know his name and he appears much older on other pics.

Also on my overalls blog rating 4.

-Comment: Luciano Casamonica in white or beige clothes including pants and a vest. A darker red or brown shirt undearneath.

English title Night of the Serpent (and Nest of Vipers).

I usually don’t like darkhaired kids with curyl hair, but maybe this isn’t that bad.

I have checked it some time ago (partly) , so I can’t remember much. But there are definitely better movies. I don’t like Italo westerns much anyway.

Rating 3 for now.

Western starring Bud Spencer
-Year: 1972
-Country: Italy, France, Spain
-Who in clothing: Chip ~9
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: yes, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: medium ?
-Rating: 4/10
-Rating: ****
-Comment: I think blond Renato Cestiè in grey knickers and a brown jacket and a string tie and white stockings. Scene from the end of the movie. Probably also in other clothes and hat.

English title Halleluja…Amigo.

Had been aired yesterday (I missed most of it but have seen it not long time ago.)

I don’t like Italo westerns and often there are few or no young actors.

I think knickers are quite rare in westerns. I like blond boys but somehow I don’t like him here.

Rating 4 only.

C’era una volta il West

ceraunavoltailwest

Western starring Charles Bronson
-Year: 1968
-Country: Italy, USA, Spain
-Who in clothing: Timmy ~9 ?
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: yes, TV recording
-Clothing occurence: low
-Rating: 4/10
-Rating: ****
-Comment: I think Enzo Santaniello, redhaired and freckled in a white shirt. Red long pants, later dark grey shorter pants. Quite unusual and not the typical brown and beige pants.

Had been aired yesterday.

Of course I have seen it several times before, even recently. But now I have recorded it (partly).

Probably one of the most famous westerns, at least it’s musical score by Ennio Morricone. Directed by Sergio Leone. Filmed in Technicolor.

Interesting movie, but somehow it gets kinda boring soon after the beginning. I’m not sure if I have ever seen the end of it. But I don’t expect better scenes. Some good close up scenes of his face (including the famous music).

Rating 4-5 for now.

Valdez, il mezzosangue

chino1973

Western starring Charles Bronson. Aka Chino
-Year: 1973
-Country: Italy, Spain, France
-Who in clothing: Jamie ~15
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: American Vincent Van Patten in a light brown coat. Also in light brown vest and medium brown hat and also in a green jacket and beige pants and also in a blue coat (blue coat according to a lobby card but could be the light brown coat). Also riding.

Handsome teen actor with longer blond hair. The movie itself also doesn’t seem bad. He also starred in 2 episodes of Bonanza (1 year earlier) and many other non-western series.

So rating 6-7 for now. I have to recheck this movie. Probably I have seen it before, but many years ago. 1.37:1 fullscreen.

Probably also worth buying but I will wait for the next airing.

Doc West

Western starring Terence Hill
-Year: 2009
-Country: Italy
-Who in clothing:  Silver ~13
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium
-Rating: 3/10
-Rating: ***
-Comment: American Benjamin Petry in mainly grey and brown clothes including a brown hat, long coat and a yellow scarf.

I only notice few scenes at the beginning and end only. Also riding (not alone). Good close up headshot scene showing his white teeth.

He also starred as younger boy in “3:10 to Yuma (2007)”, rating 4 (but mainly for Logan Lerman).

There is also Doc West 2 aka “Doc West: La sfida” aka Triggerman (also 2009) where he also starred, but I haven’t checked that one yet.

Typical Spaghetti Western. Not bad bad few good scenes. I had hoped for a bit more.

Rating 3-4 for now.

Sella d’argento

silversaddlesilversaddle2

Western starring Giuliano Gemma
-Year: 1978
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Thomas Jr. 10
-What clothes: pants, ruffle
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium ?
-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-Comment: I think blond Sven Valsecchi as 10 yo Thomas Jr. but even much younger looking in different brown clothes also with a white ruffled collar.

Aka Silver Saddle, The Man in the Silver Saddle, and They Died With Their Boots On. With lots of violence. Directed by Lucio Fulci. Techniscope 2.35:1 widescreen.

Pic 1 at about 28 minutes, pic 2 at 53 minutes. I only have checked this movie at high speed on YouTube where I checked some movies recently and found this by coincidence.

Quite interesting and probably also something for my historical clothes (sailor suit blog).

But the boy is very young. And I think there are much better westerns.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

Kid il monello del west

kidilmonellodelwest3kidilmonellodelwest2

Kid’s western
-Year: 1973
-Country: Italy
-Who in clothing: boys, girls ~8-11
-What clothes: pants
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: always
-Rating: 7/10 ?
-Rating: *******
-Comment: Several boys and girls in typical and different colored western clothes in this western starring kids only. I think also riding scenes. At least one boy in medium blue jeans as well.

Aka “Kid Terror of the West” and “Western Kid”. One boy (Walter Battistelli also starred in a similar movie “L’ostaggio (1975)”, rating 6)

I think I have seen this funny and interesting movie but many years ago.  Most kids have longer curly 1970s hair, including at least one red headed. Also nice clothes of the girls.

Unlike most of the similiar movies this is even on DVD however obviously quite rare as well. Probably the more or most famous kid’s only western.

I hope for a soon broadcasting and have to recheck it. Rating 7 for now.

Directed by Tonino Ricci (1927-2014, R.I.P.)

I will add some rare western clothes entries soon, most US people don’t know as well as famous western movies

L’ostaggio (1975)

lostaggio

Kid’s western
-Year: 1975
-Country: Italy
-Who in clothing: boys ~8-15, girls
-What clothes: pants, jeans
-Available on DVD: VHS only?
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: always
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: Many kids (boys and girls) in this movie starring kids only. Also riding and Indian kids. Typical western clothes but they appear quite modern.

I recently found another 2 kid’s westerns (the other one coming soon). I still haven’t found the site with more kid’s westerns. But probably there are only about 3 movies left (I think mostly b&w).

This movie is very rare and obviously not on DVD. I found a greek VHS for 300 EUR (Greek title looks like “Mikpoi ΠiΣtoλepoΣ” or similar, mispelled Mikpoi Mietoaepoe, can anybody help finding the correkt greek title?). The pic coming from the Dirty Pictures forum.

Aka “El rehén” and “Young Guns Go West”. Directed by Luigi Valanzano. At least one boy also starred in the other movie.

Maybe I have even seen it, but I don’t think so.

Quite funny, but I think the other kid’s western are better.

So rating 6-7 for now.
