-Comment: At least pigtailed Amber Marschall wearing a black Cowboy hat, and in different beige hats (no pigtails). Also others on a ranch including younger girls and mainly older teen boys/young men.

Series is currently being aired on Bibel.Tv (not sure which season), but I usually don’t watch it.

Pic is from a 2015 trailer (unknown episode).

Quite interesting, but rather typical ranch series. I haven’t found very good scenes. Obviously very few scenes of younger actors (mainly or only some few girls). Maybe no bib overtalls. But needs to be rechecked.

Update: I found some younger kids including boys like in s11e7. Another young boy riding (pic on IMDb, unkown name, unknown episode.)

-Comment: Lance Kerwin in beige pants with suspenders and a light green shirt. Rather few scenes, mainly at the beginning and end (end many rear views). Also a nice sitting scene at 13 minutes. Hands grabbing at his suspenders. Handsome actor, he somehow looks like Jodie Foster and looking much younger than 13 or 14. Some few other kids at 33 minutes but brief scene from a distance only (also a girl in long, blonde pigtails). Also of course Laura and her film sisters and women.

Much better is s1e2 with more kids at school including bib overalls. Coming soon. In s1e3 most scenes showing Charles at the quarry.

Also on my bib overalls blog including all later seasons.

Main entry here, rating 9 (with a similar actor)

Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this uncredited boy in blue or grey pants (no suspenders) also at least a lady with a white Cowboy hat, Barbara Britton and I think Dorothy Hart as well.

I found this some time ago but don’t remember much. I assume very few good scenes.

Rating 3-4 only. Needs to be rechecked more carefully.

-Comment: Jason Horst in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s4e10. I don’t like much this boy, but some very good jeans scenes near the end. Sorry, I don’t want to show too indescent pics. He’s also shown without the hat and sitting and cycling, I think not riding. Also a lady and men in Cowboy hats, woman also riding.

Has been aired yesterday. Very good ranch setting and scenes.

I think, I have to give rating 7.

Main entry, previously rating 4 for s1e9 (also on some of my other blogs)

Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Some boys in tight blue jeans and white Cowboy hats, and Scarlett Johansson and Ty Hillman in bib overalls (more pics and infos on my overalls blog, rating 5, mainly the girl, very few scenes of the boy). Also at least one lady (Kristin Scott Thomas) wearing a straw Cowboy hat. Of course riding scenes, but maybe not with boys.

Has been aired some days ago, but I almost missed it completely. I think rather few good scenes (of the boys). Best scenes probably at around 1h02.

Nice ranch movie. Rating 5-6 for now. Needs to be rechecked the next broadcasting.


Gunsmoke (1955) s19e13

Clothing occurence: medium ?
Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Some boys and girls in typical Western clothes, this time inside a one-room schoolhouse in s19e13 (1973). One boy, maybe the main character in pic 3 might show William Shriver in beige pants with wide beige suspenders. One more pic of him on my bedroom blog (rating 5).

Some boys have longer (1970s) hair. I don’t like long hair but the boy in pic 1 is more of interest. Dark brown suspenders or even maroon. Older teen girls, but I think none in pigtails.

Comment: Several kids outside a one-room schoolhouse on a playground in typical Western clothes including a handsome blonde boy, I think Trent Lehman (1961-1982). S15e8 (1969).

Also a nice pigtail pulling scene while walking (other blog, rating 6). The redhaired teacher also has pigtails. No or few scenes inside the school, I think no kids inside.

I recently also had an update on my bib overalls blog (older blonde boy in s20e16, rating 5)

-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: b&w
-I own: no

-Comment: Another interesting movie, starring Tommy Ivo and also several other (at least 13) boys and teen boys, including 15 yo Tommy Cook, 11 yo Johnny Calkins, 9 yo Teddy Infuhr, The Robert Mitchell Boy Choir (as Ranch boys) and others. Also at least 1 woman wearing a Cowboy hat.

Nice ranch and riding scenes and also showing chaps. Most boys wearing jeans, chaps and hats.

Rating at least 6-7. But I only have checked it briefly. Unfortunatley the movie is in b&w.

There are different DVDs available, I can’t say about each image quality. At least some are DVDr. PD Movie. 68 minutes and 54 minutes cut. So watch out.


The Range Rider (1951)

-Available on DVD: partly
B&W or color: b&w
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: At least a pigtailed girl, some boys and a lady in good Western clothes. But I don’t know all episodes.

Pic 1 from s2e14 maybe showing 9 yo Sherry Jackson. She also starred in s1e16. Another pic of the girl riding is here


Pic 2 from s3e13 probably showing 22 yo Jean Willies with a black hat.

Many supporting actors, also some (teen) boys including Tommy Ivo (in jeans and a white hat ?, maybe also riding in s1e2) and Mickey Little in s2e24. I have to do more research. Especially Tommy Ivo is handsome and also did other Westerns.

For now rating at least 5-6.
