Family film
-Year: 2002
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: boys, girl
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low+ ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: At least one girl and a lady in beige bib overalls, (on my other blog, rating 5) and some boys in jeans and Cowboy hats. A very young boy at the beginning in light brown chaps. Also ladies and of course men wearing Cowboy hats. Some few riding scenes (not in overalls).

Nice but I think a typical ranch/rodeo movie set in Texas. Both pics from the trailer.

I have to recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting. Probably not worth buying on DVD? Starring Jacob Fisher as Buddy (pic 2 on the right ?)

But for now even rating 6-7.

Zane Grey Theater

-Rating: ******
-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.

Update: Laramie (1959)

laramie4laramie3

I found 2 more interesting and even better scenes in a German trailer. So I don’t know from what episodes they are.

Nice light brown and blue shirts. Handsome actors. Not sure about their names. Pic 2 probably showing the main character Andy, played by Dennis Holmes (although he looks younger). Pic 1 probably showing him as well in a later episode? Season 1+2 are b&w.

Still rating at least 6.

Has been aired today, but unfortunatley I missed it almost completely. So needs to be rechecked next time. Also a woman in bib overalls (other blog rating 3).

-Rating: ******
-Comment: 9 or 10 yo Eric Shea, redhaired 14 yo Mitch Vogel (“Bonanza”) and 7 or 8 yo Jodie Foster starring in this interesting looking Disney TV movie.

I haven’t seen it yet. Typical clothes of that time, pants with suspenders and hats. Also pajamas. I don’t like Mitch Vogel. Eric Shea I like more. He also starred in Gunsmoke, LHOTP and some other movies, I partly have on my other blogs (bib overalls and sailor suits).

Rating 6-7 for now. Probably there are better (Disney) movies.

-Comment: Katy Kurtzman in blonde pigtails (and open hair) and Cowboy clothes including hat and also wearing another cap. Brown pants and also a short, orange dress (with a sailor-style collar and also with the Cowboy hat).

There are also other (sipporting) actors including a boy like 13 or 14 yo Rusty Gilligan, but I haven’t found him yet, as I only have seen some parts of this movie.

Quite interesting. Not a real Western but at least partly Western-like setting. Set in 1900s San Francisco.

Also on my pigtails blog, rating 7.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Gunsmoke (1955) s20e19

gunsmoke-s20e19gunsmoke-s20e19b

At least 2 boys in I think s20e19 (or 18). One younger boy is being baptized in the lake. An older boy runs away before being baptized. Typical pants with suspenders. Also showing some girls. Reminds me of a very similar scene in The Waltons.

I missed most of this episode and can’t say much more.

Also previously Lance Kerwin in s20e17. Update with pic on my bib overalls blog, rating 9.

-Comment: At least 2 boys and 2 girls in episode “Howdy, Friends” (s5e9, 1998, pictured) in simple Western costumes including hats. Also some riding. At least one girl in a long blonde braid. And men (musical band) in Western clothes. Rating 4-5 for this episode.

I later found a pic, even better (rating 6) of the song “My Jeans Are Always Blue” with boy (and a girl) wearing chaps. And a girl wearing blue jeans and a red scarf. Not sure if it’s from this episode as this song was used in different episodes.

Another good Western scene in the song “Turkey in the Straw (Barney’s Version)” first appeared in Barney’s Adventure Bus (1997) also with boys (and girls) wearing chaps (rating around 5-6).

And another scene including boys and atr least 2 teen girls in s11e9 song “Trail Boss Barney.

I have to check more episodes. Also shown several kids in overalls (overalls blog rating 7).

Also on my overalls blog “Gunsmoke s20e13) with 2 young boys wearing overalls, rating 4.

I didn’t had the time to check the complete movie. But it looks interesting.

Pic 2 at the beginning, pic 1 shortly later. Obviously several good scenes of Gary.

Warner Archive DVD, so probably a DVDr. I think, I won’t buy it.

Rating at least 6-7 for now.
