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.

-Year: 2002
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: boys, girl
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: low+ ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-Comment: At least one girl and a lady in beige bib overalls, (on my other blog, rating 5) and some boys in jeans and Cowboy hats. A very young boy at the beginning in light brown chaps. Also ladies and of course men wearing Cowboy hats. Some few riding scenes (not in overalls).

Nice but I think a typical ranch/rodeo movie set in Texas. Both pics from the trailer.

I have to recheck it more carefully the next broadcasting. Probably not worth buying on DVD? Starring Jacob Fisher as Buddy (pic 2 on the right ?)

But for now even rating 6-7.

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).

Rating 6 for now.

I don’t remember the complete movie and don’t noticed younger actors. I found it some time ago.

I found this by coincidence and don’t know the complete movie yet.

I assume only very few good scenes.

So rating 4 for now only. Needs rechecking the next airing.

I didn’t had the time to check the complete movie. But it looks interesting.

Pic 2 at the beginning, pic 1 shortly later. Obviously several good scenes of Gary.

Warner Archive DVD, so probably a DVDr. I think, I won’t buy it.

Rating at least 6-7 for now.

Obviously a typical Western for it’s time. I don’t remember younger actors in here.

So rating 2-3 for now only.

Good baseball scenes of boys and girls at the beginning.

Typical drama and ranch movie. I prefer males.

-Comment: Molly McGowan (1946-1965, pic 1+3) in nice rodeo-like Western clothes including a light blue blouse with dark blue shoulders, a yellow scarf, blue jeans and Cowboy boots (also shown shirtless). And an older blonde girl (probably her sister in real life Melody, pic 2) in similar but red clothes and both with a Cowboy hat. Also a woman (Claire Kelly) in jeans and Cowboy hat riding. Not sure if the girls riding as well.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. Obviously a quite good family Western.

I don’t know boys in there.

So rating 3-4 only.
