B&W or color: color

-Rating: 2/10
-Rating: **
-Comment: Some young and very young Mexican boys and girls in typical Mexican clothes and some few US Cowboys kids and several other kids of some other nations including Chinese and a boy in Lederhosen. Girls mainly in dark pigtails.

Has recently been aired in the German Schlefaz movie series (worst movies of all times).

The movie is indeed unusual and poor. But interesting for these days. There are some movies which are even worse.

Kids are also very young. Rather few scenes of interest. Partly shown from a distance.

So rating 2 only. Soon on my Lederhosen blog (rating 3).

-Comment: Several boys and girls at different ages (including teens) walking out of an one-room-schoolhouse. I think mainly or only Indian kids. I only noticed only this brief scene of interest. But maybe I have missed some parts?

Final part of the “recent” Western special broadcasting day.

Also starring Katharine Hepburn.

Typical Western. There are much better ones. Late Western with old JohnWayne and old Katharine Hepburn.

For younger actors’ clothes rating 2-3 only.

Good baseball scenes of boys and girls at the beginning.

Typical drama and ranch movie. I prefer males.

So rating 2-3 only.

Sorry, I’m currently too busy for checking more real Westerns.

Has been aired some time ago. Very funny but I haven’t found any boys in here. Some other young ladies but probably not in real Cowboy clothes.

Part of the British “Carry on…” movie series.

Rating 2-3.

-Comment: At least this young lady in black and red rodeo clothes in s3e8.

I have seen this on TV by coincidence some time ago but can’t say much more about other episodes or actors.

I don’t like action series and I think few western scenes.

Also starring Tricia O’Neil as Annie Oakley, Ernest Borgnine and others. There are also some kid actors here like Chad Allen in s1e2 and 13 yo Shannen Doherty in s1e3, but not in western clothes.

Rating 2-3 for now only.

-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 2/10 ?

-Comment: At least this boy. Is this 11 yo Harry McKim? At least he starred in this movie. There are many uncredited supporting actors here. I have checked this movie some time ago. Scene is at 7 minutes.

The boy is handsome and has 4 siblings who were also child actors.

I don’t like his clothes here. Don’t look like real western clothes.

And I remember few good scenes.

Rating 2-3 for now only. I have to check other (later) movies with him and his brothers. I currently have The Painted Stallion (1937) and Red River Range with Sammy (both rating 6).

Winnetou und das Halbblut Apanatschi

-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color

-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 2/10
-Rating: **
-Comment: At least one darkhaired boy (and his older sister, who had been kidnapped) in light brown pants with a belt,a purple shirt and a dark brown jacket. Scene from the end of the movie. Film #8 in this series. English title “Winnetou and the Crossbreed”.

Had been aired some days ago but I only have seen the end.

For some reason I don’t like Winnetou at all and I have never read the famous novels by Karl May.

I assume rather few good scenes of the boy. Somehow it don’t look like really western style. Though famous movie and famous (German) actors.

Rating 2 only.

Montana Sky

Ranch romance

-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Willa ~28
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: often ?
-Rating: 2/10 ?
-Rating: **
-Comment: Ashley Williams as youngest of 3 daughters wearing a white cowboy hat and jeans. Blue checkered shirt, later also a pink shirt. Diane Ladd with a brown cowboy hat. I don’t know of any kids acting.

I don’t know / don’t remember this complete movie.

Obviously not a real western but a typical ranch romance. Bestselling novel by Nora Roberts.

I will recheck it the next broadcasting. Nice actress with long dark blond hair. But I prefer younger and male actors.

So rating 2 for now.
