-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.

Rating 5-6 for now. Not a real Western anyway.

Rating 6-7.

-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.)

-Rating: 7/10

-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.

Maybe I have to make more posts.

Rating 7 for now.

-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.

-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: b&w
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium-
-Rating: 6/10

-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).

-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

/2018/01/01/happy-new-year-2018/

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.

For now rating at least 5-6.

-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.

Rating: ****
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 ?

So rating 4 only.
