Comment: Girls and even a boy in pigtails. This series almost has it all. At least boys and men in bib overalls, boys and girls in sailor suits and other historical clothes, Western clothes and interesting bedroom scenes. So probably the only series or movie for all my 5 blogs!

Pic 1 showing the black boy Allen ‘Farina’ Hoskins in pigtails in “Baby Brother” (1927). Real pigtails I think mainly in the earlier movies. He starred here between 1922 and 1935.

In pic 2 a boy pulling a girl on one of her pigtails. Movie “Choo-Choo!” (1932).

Pic 3 is a colorized version of “Dogs is Dogs” (1931). Probably much more scenes. I don’t have the time to check all short films. Most kids are also very young.

I like Classics. For pigtails rating 5-6 for now. At least another boy.

Updates on all my 4 other blogs soon.

Update: Also Buckwheat and Stymie in pigtails
