As announced, I checked some more of Tommy Ivo. I found some few movies b&w, but most are not Westerns (My Three Sons, Lassie). Some, I have on my other blogs like Belles on Their Toes, Father is a Bachelor, I even own on DVD also starring Gary Gray). I found this one on archive.org. Movie should be into Public Domain. Officially only on VHS. Some DVD offers available, not sure about their quality.

Rating 6-7 for this. More movies coming later.

He also starred in Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (currently rating 7)

Not sure about the names (uncredited). The choir (on the vinyl) was Der Kölner Kinderchor (but probably dubbed) and other actors shown.

Could be worse.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

There are also older teen girls/women in Western clothes in 1970 clip Für dich allein (Du kannst nicht alles haben).

-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).

-Comment: Renato Cestiè in dark (blue) knickers with suspenders and a cap. Also other boys and girls.

I found a headshot of him and wasn’t sure if it might be bib overalls and had to search for the movie. I have briefly checked it and it’s very interesting. I have to recheck it at slow speed. I only found a man in shortalls.

Also soon on my pigtails blog. English title: We Are No Angels.

He also starred in Si può fare… amigo (Halleluja…Amigo), rating 4 , in Cure (1973) and also some few other Westerns like “Il ritorno di Zanna Bianca” and Cosi Sia.

Rating at least 5-6 for now. Typical comedy Western.
