Gunsmoke (1955) s14e8


As announced 8 yo Mike Durkin in beige bib overalls and a jacket over them (other blog rating 3) and a hat (also without it). Also in pajamas or a night shirt, partly with a blue/green morning coat. Like one year earlier in s15e6 again with Susan Olsen.

Also soon on my bedroom blog (other pic, rating ~6).

Handsome boy, nice clothes. Unfortunately few good overalls scenes.

Rating here ~5.




Little House on the Prairie – season 1


Some more pics of season 1, which is my favourite one.

Pic 1 from s1e20 inside the one-room schoolhouse. Not sure about their names (almost all are uncredited). One might be Steve Shaw.

Pic 2 is from s1e2 (or 5) outside the school. The redhaired boy in overalls is Robert Hoffman. Not sure about the other names (except Laura and Mary).

Pic 3 again inside the school in s1e2 or 3 also showing some more girls including in blonde pigtails.

For more pics check out my other blog, especially my bib overalls blog and pigtails blog (also of later seasons).

I was sure, that I already had this episode and found these boy on my bib overalls blog in s20e13 The Colonel (rating 4), probably this is the right episode numer. One boy is 8 yo Todd Lookinland, brother of Mike, both in “The Brady Bunch”.

Interesting scenes. 2 more pics on my other blog.

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.

-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.

I only have rechecked it at high speed and only noticed few good Western clothes scenes.

-Comment: Christian Machalet in different Cowboy clothes. Many scenes also including white chaps and vest and a dark blue shirt (at the end of the movie) and also riding and sitting scenes, but without hat. Also some young women and other kids.

How could I miss this? I even have an entry on my bib overalls blog for more than 6 years! (Woman rating 4, will also be updated soon). But this is even much better. I found it by coincidence by searching for Oliver Grimm movies.

Rating 7-8 as I prefer US movies.

Needs to be rechecked more carefully. Are there girls in pic 3?
