This is my 4th blog about feature films, TV series and documentaries with clothes of mainly kids and teens in Western movies. Have fun. You will find here informations, trailer videos, low-res images and personal comments/ratings. You will not find here complete videos, download links, shopping links etc.
Drama series. German Red Band Society -Year: 2015-2017
-Who in clothing: boys ~15-29
-Available on DVD: yes
-B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low-
-Comment: 2 scenes showing western clothes in yesterday’s s3e8. Hugo (Nick Julius Schuck, pic 2 on the right) around 15 yo in a simple, black Sheriff’s vest (costume/toy). The other boys are much older up to 29 yo. Nice beige/black Western shirt, hats and also an Indian. Scene at the end of the episode.
Great, but extremely touching series.
More infos on my shiny shorts, bedroom and bib overalls blog.
Disney-Land s21e4+e5 -Year: 1974 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girls, woman -Available on DVD: VHS only ?
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 3/10 ? -Rating:*** -Comment: At least 2 younger boys (one blonde, one darkhaired), a teen boy and a girl in different clothes with belts. Should be set in the 1860s but some clothes rather look like the 1970s. Starring Jeff East and Kim Richards as kids.
I don’t know the complete movie, yet. There’s also an (unrelated ?) 1949 movie (also colorized available) called “The Big Cat” which is much more western like but set in 1933, but I haven’t found kids in there.
Rating 3-4 for now. Novel by Lew Dietz (A Seal called Andre).
Family series Meredith Henderson -Year: 1996-2000 -Country: Canada -Who in clothing: Matt ~13, Shirley 14, woman -Available on DVD: no
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: low -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: Bill Switzer as ranch boy Matt in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s3e2 (1998), also Meredith Henderson (pic 2 on the left) often wear a fedora and at least one women in a flat Western hat in s2e11.
Good family series. Also starring John White and Brendan Fletcher (nice haircut) but I think not wearing hats nor Western clothes.
I think few Western or ranch scenes and mainly focussed on the girl Shirley.
Comedy film starring Chevy Chase -Year: 1983 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Rusty ~14 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, TV recording -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 * -Rating:***** -Comment: Anthony Michael Hall (Rusty Griswald) in a black Cowboy hat and white or beige shirt.
Great movie, also on my Bedroom blog, rating 10.
I don’t remember all scenes. But I assume rather few Western scenes. He also wore shorts and dental braces.
So rating 5 for these clothes. Movie rating much higher.
Western series, 60 ep, Michael Ansara -Year: 1959-1960 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Clint ~14, girl ~9 ? -Available on DVD: yes *
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: At least 14 or 15 yo Don Grady in s1e14 in beige pants and a dark vest. Also a girl in long pigtails in s1e20 (also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~7).
Maybe more younger actors?
Rating 5-6 for now.
There are DVD-R offers, maybe not officially released, or PD?
Western series, 452 ep, host Ronald Reagan -Year: 1952-1970 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girls ~10-15, women ? -Available on DVD: yes, partly
–B&W or color: b&w, color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -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.
Family series, 12/24 ep + sequel -Year: 1985-1986 -Country: AUS -Who in clothing: Colin Cowboy ~18 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low+ ? -Rating: 4/10 ? -Rating:**** -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.
Disney film. Ron Howard -Year: 1970 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Chris 14 -Available on DVD: VHS only
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -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.
Western series starring Lorne Greene -Year: 1959-1973 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: teen boys ~14-18 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: often -Rating: 7/10 -Rating:******* -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).
Adventure film. Disney-Land s24e2 -Year: 1976 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Davie ~13, Thud ~10 -Available on DVD: yes

Interesting, but typical looking Disney Western. I didn’t had the time yet to watch the complete movie.
Rating 5-6 for now.
