-Comment: Some boys (and maybe girls) costumed as Cowboys and Indians. At least 2 or 3 but short scenes. Boys in tight jeans including one in beige ones. Simple costumes (toys). Not sure about the names (uncredited). The choir (on the vinyl) was Der Kölner Kinderchor (but probably dubbed) and other actors shown.

Has been aired today, but I haven’t seen it completely. Also available online.

Typical comedy/musical film of it’s time also starring Theo Lingen, Ilja Richter, Eddi Arent, Uschi Glas, Peter Weck and some more. Directed by Harald Reinl.

Could be worse.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

There are also older teen girls/women in Western clothes in 1970 clip Für dich allein (Du kannst nicht alles haben).

Sorry, no pics to add. One is here

I assume few or very few scenes. And the boy is very young.

The boy lives in Bavaria in the movie, maybe also wore Lederhosen?

There’s a DVD available in good quality, not sure if officially and/or DVDr.

Rating 3 for now only.

Disney-Land s21e4+e5

-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).

Bad Little Angel

Drama starring Virginia Weidler
-Year: 1939
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Patsy ~11, Bobby 5, boy ~16
-Available on DVD: no ?
B&W or color: b&w
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 3/10 ?
-Rating: ***
-Comment: Virginia Weidler as orphan and an older teen boy wearing Cowboy hats. There’s also 6 or 7 yo but older looking Mickey Kuhn as 5 yo Bobby, but probably not in Western clothers. This is not a Western.

I don’t know the complete movie and found it by coincidence.

More movies about Virginia Weidler on my pigtails blog.

Rating 3 for now for this scene. I think not officially on DVD.

 

Old Surehand

-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: yes, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: low
-Rating: 3/10 ?
-Rating: ***
-Comment: Some boys and girls (but mainly younger boys) in typical clothes. Boys in pants with suspenders and girls in dresses, some with pigtails.

Part 3 of 4 from the recent Western special broadcasting day.

Typical German Winnetou Western, but I don’t like them and only noticed few good scenes of younger actors. Der Ölprinz (rating 5) has better scenes. Maybe they are even the same kids?

So rating 3-4 only.

Please also note my new 5th blog about Pigtails (f/m). Many of them are/will be Western movies as well.

-Comment: Some boys and girls, around 9yo, some few a bit younger, in an one-room schoolhouse. Mainly Mexican looking boys. Shirts and pants without suspenders. Also at least one older teen girl. Most or all have pigtails.

Part 2 of the recent Western TV weekend.

Typical b&w western. I think very few scenes of the kids. Also starring James Stewart.

Rating 2-3 for now only.

Gunsmoke (1955) s19e20

-Who in clothing: Lester ~8
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: yes, TV recording
-Clothing occurence: medium
-Rating: 3/10
-Rating: ***
-Comment: I think this is 8 or 9 yo Todd Lookinland aka Todd Lookingland (“The Brady Bunch”, probably the brother of Mike) in beige pants with suspenders and in a beige corduroy suit with a bow tie at the end. Several scenes with him.

I don’t like this young actor and his haircut. There are definitely better episodes. What else should I say about this? Nice one-room schoolhouse, but I don’t remember other kids here. Maybe I have missed the beginning (not sure).

Rating just 3-4 for this 1974 episode.

Main entry (rating 9) with some other kids

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

-Comment: I think this must be Marie Windsor as fugitive Doll Brown in a vest, Cowboy hat and green scarf.

I have checked this some time ago and can’t say much more yet. 90 minutes Trucolor.

Obviously a typical Western for it’s time. I don’t remember younger actors in here.

So rating 2-3 for now only.

-Comment: One update of this series. Ep: Runaway Renegade (s1e2). Next to Nancy Gilbert as young Calamity Jane there’s also a teen boy, probably 15 yo Sammy Ogg (“The Adventures of Spin and Marty“). But he wears a typical shirt not that western / rodeo style like the girl.

Rating 3-4 for this episode. Main entry, currently rating 3 as well at

-Available on DVD: yes, MOD

-Rating: ***
-Comment: Molly McGowan (1946-1965, pic 1+3) in nice rodeo-like Western clothes including a light blue blouse with dark blue shoulders, a yellow scarf, blue jeans and Cowboy boots (also shown shirtless). And an older blonde girl (probably her sister in real life Melody, pic 2) in similar but red clothes and both with a Cowboy hat. Also a woman (Claire Kelly) in jeans and Cowboy hat riding. Not sure if the girls riding as well.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. Obviously a quite good family Western.

I don’t know boys in there.

So rating 3-4 only.
