Comment: At least this young girl in dark pigtails. Maybe Sophie Galibert?

Sorry, I don’t know this movie and can’t say much more yet.

But looks not bad.

So rating 6-7 for now. There are many similar movies set in WWII.

Comment: At least Ginger Rogers as tomboy Ellie in long, dark pigtails. There’s also a young girl (7 yo Joan Carroll) but I think not in pigtails. Maybe other women as well?

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie and can’t say much more.

Nominated for an Oscar.

Rating 3 for now only. I prefer younger actresses.

Comment: At least 2 girls in yesterday’s episode s20e17 starring Lance Kerwin (pic 2 on bottom) as the film brother of the blonde girl (is this Karen Obediear as Sally ?). There is a continuity error as she is also shown with unbraided hair in the very same scene some seconds earlier and later sitting in the classroom. Behind her a darkhaired girl in very long pigtails.

Very good series and several famous young guest actors. At least the episodes in color (I think seasons 12-20). I don’t know all episodes and have to recheck the series, especially the older b&w episodes. I bet that there are also other girls, üprobably teens and women as well, maybe in braids or buns.

Rating 7-8 for now.

Also on my bib overalls blog rating up to 9 (including this episode with Lance Kerwin in brown overalls) and my Western blog rating up to 9.

Comment: Katie Boland in thick, rather short pigtails, her younger film sister played by Tatum Knight in pigtails but only few parts on top braided. Also some other blonde teen girls at school in pigtails. But in total few scenes of all.

Also on my bib overalls blog rating 8 (Kevin Zegers, younger boy and Katie Boland).

Unfortunatley rather few pigtails scenes. Katie Boland has many different hairstyles including a ponytail.

For pigtails rating 5 only. I don’t like thick pigtails. At least some other good scenes including skinny dipping of all and of course bib overalls. However, a good plot.

Comment: Judith Hellebronth as Anica (pics 1+3) in buns and even 4 pigtails (ep 16), one other teen girl in thick, long blonde pigtails (ep 2 ?). Probably some more.

I don’t like much this series and preferred Schloss Einstein. Fabrixx mainly had teens, many street kids, no bib overalls, too many girls and few handsome boys (except Kevin). Setting mainly in and around the youth club instead of a boarding school.

I don’t remember all girls or all episodes. Many early episodes have been deleted.

Rating 6 for now.

Update, also another girl (Esther ?) and a woman in a braid.

Update 2: The Waltons

waltons-s3e15waltons-s4e2

Searching for Erin in pigtails in later seasons (I have very briefly checked some parts of season 3+4 but haven’t found anything), I found a guest star and also Elizabeth in looped pigtails.

Pic 1 from s3e15 friend of Ben (I don’t remember her name). Pic 2 from s4e2.

I didn’t remember Elizabeth in looped pigtails. Obviously very rare. And Erin is rather rarely shown or in the focus. I noticed her once in not braided pigtails.

Mary Ellen also in pigtails in season 3 (disc 5) but looking similar like in the main entry.

I have to recheck seasons 1-4 or 5 again (and season 8+9) also for more supporting actresses, especially at school. I’m currently still watching season 6.

Main entry rating 10

Comment: At least this girl in dark, rather short pigtails. Is this Kim Hauser?

I found it by coincidence on YouTube. But I only have checked it briefly.

1973 novel “An American Ghost” by Chester Aaron. Set in the 1860s Mississippi area.

There are also scenes where she looks different (better).

Rating 5-6 for now. 60 minutes.

Comment: At least this unknown, older teen girl in dark, very long pigtails.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boys 11 yo, rating 5+).

Sorry, I can’t say much more as I don’t know the complete series. Obviously not on DVD.

According to pics, I assume rather few good scenes.

So rating 5-6 for now only. Girl also seems quite old.

Comment: Kirsten Dunst in long, blonde pigtails and bib overalls. Also wet scenes. 13 yo but looking younger or filmed earlier.

Very good. Also on my overalls blog rating 6+.

The movie itself is also very good, but I often miss the end.

Rating 9-10 for now.

Kirsten Dunst also wears pigtails in later movie as an older teen girl like in True Heart. More entries coming soon.
