This is my 4th blog about feature films, TV series and documentaries with clothes of mainly kids and teens in Western movies. I collect here informations, trailer videos, low-res images and personal comments/ratings.
Western/Musical. Steve Holden – The Durango Kid
–Who in clothing: Buzzy ~15 ?
–What clothes: jeans, Cowboy hat
–Available on DVD: yes *
–B&W or color: b&w
–I own: no
–Clothing occurence: very low ?
–Rating: 6/10 ?
–Comment: At least this teen boy, probably ~15 yo Tommy Ivo in dark (black) jeans and a black Cowboy hat riding. Obviously very few scenes if any more. But handsome boy, nice jeans and riding.
Available on DVD (maybe not officially, probably DVDr).
I currently have 5 other movies here starring, mainly younger Tommy Ivo. B&w/color, all rating 6 as well. Try a blog search.
Family series starring Peter Graves -Year: 1955-1960 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Joey ~11 (s1), others -Available on DVD: yes -B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium+ ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: Bobby Diamond as 9 yo orphan Joey (season 1) and many other guest stars including Bill Chapin and Jimmy Baird. Pic 4 from s4e2, I think showing Joey on left. Later, I found s1e11 with nice junior rodeo scenes including chaps and Cowboy hats including supporting actors. I previously thought of rating 5-(6), now ~6-7.
Of course a famous ranch series. Riding scenes and tight jeans.
I only have checked some few parts and have to recheck the complete series.
Family series starring Amber Marshall -Year: 2007- -Country: Canada -Who in clothing: Amy ~18 (s1), boys ~ 6-8, others -Available on DVD: yes * -B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low+ * -Rating: 3/10 ? -Rating:*** -Comment: At least pigtailed Amber Marschall wearing a black Cowboy hat, and in different beige hats (no pigtails). Also others on a ranch including younger girls and mainly older teen boys/young men.
Series is currently being aired on Bibel.Tv (not sure which season), but I usually don’t watch it.
Pic is from a 2015 trailer (unknown episode).
Quite interesting, but rather typical ranch series. I haven’t found very good scenes. Obviously very few scenes of younger actors (mainly or only some few girls). Maybe no bib overtalls. But needs to be rechecked.
Update: I found some younger kids including boys like in s11e7. Another young boy riding (pic on IMDb, unkown name, unknown episode.)
Western series, 164 ep -Year: 1954-1959 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Rusty 10, others -Available on DVD: no
–B&W or color: b&w/color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: always * -Rating: 7/10 -Rating:******* -Comment: 10 yo handsome Lee Aaker (“Hondo (1953)” and some other entries I have) most of the time in a medium blue Cavalry uniform and mostly with a black hat and long leather boots. Somehow it doesn’t look like a real Western to me (no Cowboy hat). So I haven’t made a post earlier. I don’t like the uniform. Also some other kids including Indian boy Pokiwah (also shirtless like in s1e25) and some other boys.
Originally filmed in b&w. Also (few) riding scenes. But I don’t know all episodes.
Pics taken from Spanish YouTube clips, might be a different episode number. Pic 1 from s1e3 showing him without the hat. Pic 2 nice riding scene from the German compilation DVD (Rin-Tin-Tin im wilden Westen, 3 ep), Pic 3 showing another boy, from s1e23, pic 4 from the German DVD, pic 5 from s1e22 showing Rusty in other clothes.
Western starring Roy Rogers -Year: 1946 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys ~8-16 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: often ? -Rating: 6/10 -Rating:****** -Comment: Another interesting movie, starring Tommy Ivo and also several other (at least 13) boys and teen boys, including 15 yo Tommy Cook, 11 yo Johnny Calkins, 9 yo Teddy Infuhr, The Robert Mitchell Boy Choir (as Ranch boys) and others. Also at least 1 woman wearing a Cowboy hat.
Nice ranch and riding scenes and also showing chaps. Most boys wearing jeans, chaps and hats.
Rating at least 6-7. But I only have checked it briefly. Unfortunatley the movie is in b&w.
There are different DVDs available, I can’t say about each image quality. At least some are DVDr. PD Movie. 68 minutes and 54 minutes cut. So watch out.
Western starring Charles Starrett -Year: 1950 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Todd ~11 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium- -Rating: 6/10 -Rating:****** -Comment: Another movie starring Tommy Ivo. Probably filmed earlier as he looks younger than 13 but rather 10 or 11.
At the beginning completely in black clothes including a black hat and a black scarf over his mouth, also riding and then sitting inside (pic 5). In the middle of the movie dark or black pants and a lighter shirt (according to colorized pics light green or red on others). And a beige hat (pics 1-3). At the end in a checkered shirt and riding as well (pic 4).
Although b&w very interesting. But I think rather few scenes with him.
Rating at least 6-7. Available on DVD. 55 minutes only (what was usual these days).
Western series, 78 ep Jock Mahoney -Year: 1951-53 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girl, women -Available on DVD: partly
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: At least a pigtailed girl, some boys and a lady in good Western clothes. But I don’t know all episodes.
Pic 1 from s2e14 maybe showing 9 yo Sherry Jackson. She also starred in s1e16. Another pic of the girl riding is here
Pic 2 from s3e13 probably showing 22 yo Jean Willies with a black hat.
Many supporting actors, also some (teen) boys including Tommy Ivo (in jeans and a white hat ?, maybe also riding in s1e2) and Mickey Little in s2e24. I have to do more research. Especially Tommy Ivo is handsome and also did other Westerns.
Western series Tris Coffin, 78 ep -Year: 1957-1959 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Peter ~9 ?, woman -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 3/10 ? -Rating:*** -Comment: At least this boy, not sure about his name, probably Dave Robard. Pics 1+2 from s1e14 also riding and showing some younger kids, pic 3 from s1e30. Also at least one lady in a Cowboy hat, (Karen Womack, uncredited on IMDb, unknown episode), maybe some more.
I don’t know all episodes.
Rating 3-4 for now only. I assume few young actors and rather few good scenes. Sorry for the bad pics.
TV drama movie about blind parents and blind child –Year: 1996
–Who in clothing: boys ~9-11
–Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color

–Comment: Some few ranch boys, most notably this boy riding in a nice Western/rodeo shirt. Also starring 9 yo Courtland Mead in bib overalls (other blog, rating 4). Also starring Richard Thomas (The Waltons).
I only have rechecked it at high speed and only noticed few good Western clothes scenes.
Set between 1940-1959. Picture maybe in the late 50s ?
