manfromthealamomanfromthealamo2

Western starring Glenn Ford
-Year: 1953
-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Carlos ~13, boy, girl
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: medium- ?
-Rating: 4/10 ?
-Rating: ****
-Comment: Marc Cavell (1939-2004) as Mexican boy Carlos in typical Mexican clothes (pic 2). Also at least a younger boy (maybe Erik Nelson) and girl (Patsy Weil ?) in at least 2 scenes. Pictured at the end.

Has been aired last week, but I missed most of it. I don’t like the Mexican teen boy in black, curly hair. The younger kids are more of interest.

But rather few scenes (of the younger kids).

So rating 3-4 only.

Update: Winnetous Rückkehr

winnetousrueckkehr5winnetousrueckkehr4

2 more pics, showing Timmy without the hat, looking much different, and also another Quaker boy and some girls. Pic 1 from the beginning of part 2.

Very good movie. I wish, I had recorded it. Obviously even worth buing on DVD, but I think, I’ll wait for the next broadcasting. I didn’t watch the long movie carefully. Handsome actors, also the Indian boys, I usually don’t like. Good plot.

Rating 7(-8) was correct. Main entry at

-Comment: Thomas Curtis and his film dad in jeans and Cowboy clothes. Also in bib overalls (other blog, rating 4 as well).

Funny scene. While this robbery, he’s kissing a girl.

I don’t know the complete movie, but assume very few scenes.

Handsome blonde boy, but quite young. Looks like an interesting movie.

For western scenes, rating 3-4 for now.

-Comment: ~12 yo Peter Billingsley as 9 yo main character Ralphie in white Western clothes including hat and scarf and cow chaps in a short dream scene. Also his younger brother in rare bib overalls (other blog rating 3). Set in the 1940s.

By updating my entry on my other blog, I found this scene by coincidence.

Great and funny movie, although I don’t like this 2 boys. Some great scenes like a tongue stuck at a frozen pole. (Some more movies with this on my sailor suit blog). Another movie with this family after the 1966 novel by Jean Shepherd is Ollie Hopnoodle’s Haven of Bliss (rating 5).

Interesting clothes, but for this brief scene rating 4 only.

-Comment: Next to the girls Bibi and Tina (pic 2, also riding) and maybe some other females including women, there’s a boy in Cowboy clothes (also close up including rear view) and also an older teen boy/young men. Many kids in costumes at the end. Some as Cowboys.

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).

Also Soccer playing boys (soon on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4).

Rating 6 for now.

-Country: USA
-Who in clothing: Mark 9, Jamie 14
-Available on DVD: yes
B&W or color: color
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: often ?
-Rating: 6/10 ?
-Rating: ******
-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.

B&W or color: color

-Clothing occurence: low+ ?
-Rating: 5/10 ?
-Rating: *****
-Comment: At least this boy in s1e17 “Skippy & the Cowboy”. IMDb says s1e17 is “Skippy and the Stuntman” what is obviously wrong, again. Also a woman with a flat hat, but not a Cowboy hat. Maybe also riding?

Nice ranch contents. But I don know all episodes.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 9(-10).

Rating 5-6 for now.

-Rating: *******
-Comment: At least 14 or 15 yo Bill Mumy as Andy (pic 1) in a light blue shirt, beige pants with a belt and a grey Cowboy hat. Pic from s2e3 The Kid. Also Clint Howard as Willie in light blue bib overalls in s2e14 (pic 4, soon also on my overalls blog). Very interesting episode is s1e25 with many kids (mostly uncredited on IMDb) in and outside a school (including girls) and ~14 yo Ron Howard (pic 3 standing in light blue jeans) and also a young blonde boy in pants with suspenders.

Lots of guest stars including Victor French, Jonathan Harris and many more. As younger kid also Johnny Whitaker (“Tom Sawyer 1973”). But I don’t know all episodes.

I found this by coincidence. Rating 7 for now. Needs to be rechecked. Partly on YouTube but in a bad quality. There is or was a DVD set, maybe inofficial DVDr?

Rating 8 for now.
