-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: Some boys and girls in typical western clothes (pants with suspenders). Pic 1 from s1e10 (maybe showing Jimmy Baird (“Fury”)?). In s1e12 there are kids at school. Pic soon on my pigtails blog (rating 4).

Robert aka Bobby Crawford in bib overalls in s5e3 (soon on my bib overalls blog, rating ~6-7). Don Grady in s4e10+11.

I don’t know all episodes but assume rather few scenes of younger actors.

Rating 4 for s1e10+12, probably higher rating for the others. I thought, I already had an entry.

Update: Laramie (1959)

laramie4laramie3

I found 2 more interesting and even better scenes in a German trailer. So I don’t know from what episodes they are.

Nice light brown and blue shirts. Handsome actors. Not sure about their names. Pic 2 probably showing the main character Andy, played by Dennis Holmes (although he looks younger). Pic 1 probably showing him as well in a later episode? Season 1+2 are b&w.

Still rating at least 6.

-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

-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.
