-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.

-Comment: Some boys and girls in typical western clothes (pants with suspenders). Pic 1 from s1e10 (maybe showing Jimmy Baird (“Fury”)?). In s1e12 there are kids at school. Pic soon on my pigtails blog (rating 4).

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

I don’t know all episodes but assume rather few scenes of younger actors.

Rating 4 for s1e10+12, probably higher rating for the others. I thought, I already had an entry.

-Comment: Some boys shirtless in shorts and cowboys hats. One younger boy in a vest. One older boy with pink bunny ears.

Maybe a quite interesting and unusual movie, but I assume rather few scenes.

And it’s not a Western.

So rating 3-4 only.

In total, there are 78 Mickey McGuire short films. The earlier ones, including this one are silent films.

Very nice, Our Gang like comedy series. Also some nice scenes in bib overalls (other blog rating 7-(8). Maybe someone can identify an actor there?

For Western scenes rating 4-5 for now.

-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Carlos ~13, boy, girl
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color

-Clothing occurence: medium- ?
-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-Comment: Marc Cavell (1939-2004) as Mexican boy Carlos in typical Mexican clothes (pic 2). Also at least a younger boy (maybe Erik Nelson) and girl (Patsy Weil ?) in at least 2 scenes. Pictured at the end.

Has been aired last week, but I missed most of it. I don’t like the Mexican teen boy in black, curly hair. The younger kids are more of interest.

But rather few scenes (of the younger kids).

So rating 3-4 only.

-Comment: Thomas Curtis and his film dad in jeans and Cowboy clothes. Also in bib overalls (other blog, rating 4 as well).

Funny scene. While this robbery, he’s kissing a girl.

I don’t know the complete movie, but assume very few scenes.

Handsome blonde boy, but quite young. Looks like an interesting movie.

For western scenes, rating 3-4 for now.

A Christmas Story (1983)

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

-Clothing occurence: very low
-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-Comment: ~12 yo Peter Billingsley as 9 yo main character Ralphie in white Western clothes including hat and scarf and cow chaps in a short dream scene. Also his younger brother in rare bib overalls (other blog rating 3). Set in the 1940s.

By updating my entry on my other blog, I found this scene by coincidence.

Great and funny movie, although I don’t like this 2 boys. Some great scenes like a tongue stuck at a frozen pole. (Some more movies with this on my sailor suit blog). Another movie with this family after the 1966 novel by Jean Shepherd is Ollie Hopnoodle’s Haven of Bliss (rating 5).

Interesting clothes, but for this brief scene rating 4 only.

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

-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-Comment: At least these 2 young ranch boys in jeans and Cowboy hats. Also at least one young lady in a white hat. Of course also men including Robert Duvall riding.

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

I assume only very few good scenes.

So rating 4 for now only. Needs rechecking the next airing.

Gunsmoke (1955) s20e23

gunsmokes20e23gunsmokes20e23b

Some boys and I think girls as well (Basques) in I think s20e23. Different hats.

Basques are quite rare in a Western. More common are Mexicans.

There are definitely better episodes. Only one more in this series to come.

For this rating 3-4. Main entry rating up to 9

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers!

Update: Gunsmoke (1955) s20e7

gunsmokes20e7cgunsmokes20e7b

2 more pics of Eric Olson as announced. Also showing wearing a hat and jacket (brief scene at the end) and a headshot to show how the actor looked like in 1974 (one year before “The Swiss Family Robinson”).

Sorry, I’m currently very busy and rarely watch Western movies, especially not online. And there are few of them on TV.

Please also check my new pigtails blog, or my other blogs or the archives.
