-Available on DVD: yes *
-B&W or color: b&w

-Comment: Joey Scott, I think unpictured, blonde boy ~7 yo, and at least one other boy in ranch clothes and jeans.

Soon to be released on DVD in Germany next week (15 episodes only).

Pics from s1e19.

Needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 4 for now only. I assume few good Western clothes scenes. Interesting farm series, though. Riding scenes, but not sure if notable scenes of boys. Main plot is about the girl. Remake of the 1944 movie starring Elizabeth Taylor, which won 2 Oscars.

Rating: 4/10

Comment: At least redhaired Stephen Liss (I think in pic 2 with a cap) and another blonde, I think uncredited boy (brown vest and pants). To me it’s not a real Western, as obviously set in the mid 1920s (due to the cars).

I think rather few good scenes, but I have to recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting. Pic 2 reminds me of The Music Man (1962).

Rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Vidal Peterson (“Something Wicked This Way Comes”) in historical clothes, pants with suspenders, a hat and glasses and also a rifle. Also pigtailed Sydney Penny and other girls in sailor dresses and others in historical clothes (other blog, rating 3, Something Wicked This Way Comes, 1950s rating 8) .

A bit off topic, but interesting ranch setting in 1921. Pic from ep. 1.

Handsome actor.

So rating 4.

There are better episodes. So rating ~4 only.

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

The other boys are much older up to 29 yo. Nice beige/black Western shirt, hats and also an Indian. Scene at the end of the episode.

Great, but extremely touching series.

-Comment: At least Mark Hennessy as “Cowboy”, exact age unknown, in Western clothes including beige hat and jeans (in season 1 only). Also wearing Cowboy hats: Peter O’Brien and Kevin Harrington (season 1) and some more men. Also several younger kids acting, but unknown if in Western clothes. Probably also riding scenes.

I don’t know, yet this complete series. Season 2 (1987) is maybe even better. Looks very interesting especially the younger kids. Also starring Kylie Minogue.

For Western clothes, rating 3-4 for now only.

Also soon on my shiny shorts blog, ~rating 4-5.

Robert aka Bobby Crawford in bib overalls in s5e3 (soon on my bib overalls blog, rating ~6-7). Don Grady in s4e10+11.
