This is my 4th blog about feature films, TV series and documentaries with clothes of mainly kids and teens in Western movies. Have fun. You will find here informations, trailer videos, low-res images and personal comments/ratings. You will not find here complete videos, download links, shopping links etc.

–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: often * -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: Several kids, I think mainly girls, maybe around 7-14 (of the mixed kids choir Kinderkoor Henk van der Velde and also other choirs) and also a woman in Cowboy/Western clothes. Obviously showing ep 18 (s2e11, 1970) which was about the Wild West.
During research for my other blogs, I stumbled upon this show, I never heard of. The 1st show featuring kids. There is even a DVD but only 3 complete episodes survived along some other fragments.
Family series Meredith Henderson -Year: 1996-2000 -Country: Canada -Who in clothing: Matt ~13, Shirley 14, woman -Available on DVD: no
–B&W or color: color -I own: no, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: low -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: Bill Switzer as ranch boy Matt in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s3e2 (1998), also Meredith Henderson (pic 2 on the left) often wear a fedora and at least one women in a flat Western hat in s2e11.
Good family series. Also starring John White and Brendan Fletcher (nice haircut) but I think not wearing hats nor Western clothes.
I think few Western or ranch scenes and mainly focussed on the girl Shirley.

–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, TV recording -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 * -Rating:***** -Comment: Anthony Michael Hall (Rusty Griswald) in a black Cowboy hat and white or beige shirt.
Great movie, also on my Bedroom blog, rating 10.
I don’t remember all scenes. But I assume rather few Western scenes. He also wore shorts and dental braces.
So rating 5 for these clothes. Movie rating much higher.

–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: 8 or 9 yo blonde and freckled Renato Cestiè as Riccardo in white pants (US flag style), black or dark blue Cowboy hat and a shirt or jeans jacket, looks dark blue on pic 2. Also in dark shorts/knickers.

I have checked this long time ago and don’t remember much of it.
There should be a school, maybe there are more younger actors?
Rating 6 for now.
I have 3 more Westerns starring Dickie Jones, rating up to 5. Please do a blog search.

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.

Maybe more younger actors?
Rating 5-6 for now.
There are DVD-R offers, maybe not officially released, or PD?

–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: low+ -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: Some boys in cotton bib overalls but few and brief scenes only. And also girls and grown up’s in Western clothes. Nice school scenes.
Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5 as well.
Part of the “Love Comes Softly” movie series, rating 3-5. For more infos about this and other movies, please visit my other blog. Also soon on my pigtails blog.
Another interesting Janette Oke series is “When Calls the Heart”, but this is set in 1910 though Western town setting.

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.
