-Comment: Some (teen) boys, girls and women in Western clothes.

I don’t know the complete series. There were many supporting actors. I only found some few kids including 12 yo Mitch Vogel (“Bonanza”) in s18e4 (color) and Donna Corcoran and others in s2e6 Dear Teacher (pics 2-4). By coincidence I later found a boy (Danny Flower ?) in bib overalls in s13e9 (pic 1, more pics and infos soon on my overalls blog).

Pic 5 showing a young lady in a Cowboy hat in s1e15, maybe Sheila Ryan?

Rating at least 5-6 for now. More episodes needs to be rechecked. Only partly on DVD.

-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: ~15 yo Ronny Howard as 14 yo Chris wearing a black Cowboy hat, jeans and a beige shirt.

I don’t know/ don’t remember the complete movie. Obviously few Western scenes.

A typical boy/dog Disney movie of it’s time.

Rating 5 for now only.

-Comment: Next to Mitch Vogel, there are several other (famous) teen boys acting in this 1972 episode “The Initiation”. Ron Howard (pic 3 on left), Nicolas Beauvy (pic 2), James Van Patten (pic 4 on right ?), Alfred Barker Jr. and Sean Kelly (both also in “The Cowboys 1972” like Nicolas Beauvy), Jeff Smart (“Bless the Beasts & Children”) and some more.

Several scenes of them. Many wearing vests and hats.

I recently find this by searching for Hog Wild (1974) starring Nicolas Beauvy in wet bib overalls (other blog rating 7, still missing pics).

Very interesting, but some are quite old.

Rating 6-7. Main entry, previously rating up to 5

Interesting, but typical looking Disney Western. I didn’t had the time yet to watch the complete movie.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Western starring Glenn Ford
-Year: 1953
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Carlos ~13, boy, girl
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no, partly TV recording
-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: Next to the girls Bibi and Tina (pic 2, also riding) and maybe some other females including women, there’s a boy in Cowboy clothes (also close up including rear view) and also an older teen boy/young men. Many kids in costumes at the end. Some as Cowboys.

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).

Also Soccer playing boys (soon on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4).

Rating 6 for now.

-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Mark 9, Jamie 14
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color

-Clothing occurence: often ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-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.

Lancer

-Available on DVD: no *
B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low+ ?
-Rating: 7/10 ?
-Rating: *******
-Comment: At least 14 or 15 yo Bill Mumy as Andy (pic 1) in a light blue shirt, beige pants with a belt and a grey Cowboy hat. Pic from s2e3 The Kid. Also Clint Howard as Willie in light blue bib overalls in s2e14 (pic 4, soon also on my overalls blog). Very interesting episode is s1e25 with many kids (mostly uncredited on IMDb) in and outside a school (including girls) and ~14 yo Ron Howard (pic 3 standing in light blue jeans) and also a young blonde boy in pants with suspenders.

Lots of guest stars including Victor French, Jonathan Harris and many more. As younger kid also Johnny Whitaker (“Tom Sawyer 1973”). But I don’t know all episodes.

I found this by coincidence. Rating 7 for now. Needs to be rechecked. Partly on YouTube but in a bad quality. There is or was a DVD set, maybe inofficial DVDr?

-Comment: Not a Western but set in South Africa in 1914. Chase Moore (pic 1) in beige pants with suspenders, a blue/green vest and a brown hat. Blonde Nicholas Trueb (pic 2) in similar clothes and a grey vest. Probably riding scenes.

Nice ranch scenes. But I still have to check the complete movie. Handsome actors.

So rating 6-7 for now. Produced by Jean-Jaques Annaud.
