-Comment: Christian Machalet in different Cowboy clothes. Many scenes also including white chaps and vest and a dark blue shirt (at the end of the movie) and also riding and sitting scenes, but without hat. Also some young women and other kids.

How could I miss this? I even have an entry on my bib overalls blog for more than 6 years! (Woman rating 4, will also be updated soon). But this is even much better. I found it by coincidence by searching for Oliver Grimm movies.

Rating 7-8 as I prefer US movies.

Needs to be rechecked more carefully. Are there girls in pic 3?

-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.

Update: Winnetous Rückkehr

winnetousrueckkehr5winnetousrueckkehr4

2 more pics, showing Timmy without the hat, looking much different, and also another Quaker boy and some girls. Pic 1 from the beginning of part 2.

Very good movie. I wish, I had recorded it. Obviously even worth buing on DVD, but I think, I’ll wait for the next broadcasting. I didn’t watch the long movie carefully. Handsome actors, also the Indian boys, I usually don’t like. Good plot.

Rating 7(-8) was correct. Main entry at

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).

-Comment: Several ranch boys including Ryan Merriman as Nathan ~14 yo in nice Cowboy hats and jeans. Good riding and rodeo scenes. Many supporting actors. Probably women in Cowboy hats as well.

I found this on an old PC and first didn’t remember the original title. And also couldn’t find it under the German title.

I also have this on my bib overalls blog (6 yo boy, rating 7-).

Very interesting movie. Also good bedroom scenes (shirtless Nathan in underwear being creamed by his mom). No entry yet on my bedroom blog.

Update 2: Hondo (1953)

hondo-nn2hondo-nn1

Yesterday, I have finally seen this John Wayne Western completely.

Lee Aaker is very handsome but small. Blonde hair, almost a bowl cut. Rather few, but good scenes of him in the first half and no jeans.

Also a brief riding scene, I previously not knew. Good plot and some funny scenes. He was knocked down when shooting (pic 1).

Still rating 8.

2nd half in jeans, also headshots

Hondo (1967) series, rating 7

Completely on YouTube in German under the wrong title “Der weiße Hengst”.

I only have checked it briefly as I thought, I had enough pics on my other blog. Needs to be rechecked more carefully, later.

Many kids and also overalls.

So rating at least 5-6.
