Comment: At least this girl at school in medium length dark pigtails. Several different dresses (at least ~5 but includes costumes for a stage play) and I think red bib overalls (or a bibslike dress or skirtalls, soon on my other blog, rating 2-3).

Funny plot and handsome boy. For pigtails for now, rating 4-5.

Comment: At least Sylvia Wolff as Rapunzel in extremely long, blonde pigtails.

Another rope-entry. One other Rapunzel movie coming soon.

There are few good live action versions. Fairy Tales are a good source for pigtails.

Rating 4 for now. I prefer younger actresses. English title: Rapunzel or the Magic of Tears.

Story 7: Pigtails and ropes

sugarcreekgang-thegreatcanoefish

Next to the famous pulling at a pigtail (which ressembling a rope) there are also real ropes like this scene of Circus in The Sugar Creek Gang: The Great Canoe Fish (film #2). Even the same color! Swinging several times forth and back to Dragonfly who plays her brother in the movies. The pigtails of course are also swinging.

I’m watching the 5 DVD over and over again, but mainly watching for the bib overalls scenes (rating 10, sorry, no girls).

There’s also a rope in other movies like The Littlest Hobo, but I have to check for more. In the fairy tale Rapunzel, the hair is even used as a rope (2 life action movies, coming soon).

Comment: At least this blonde girl or young teen girl in long pigtails and a hat. Either uncredited or maybe Amanda Sonju?

Very interesting ranch movie starring Kieran Culkin and Erik von Detten set in the 1950s.

Also on my bedroom and western blog.

For pigtails rating 6-7. Needs to be rechecked for other (supporting) actresses (girls, women). But I assume rather few scenes.

Comment: At least this darkhaired girl in quite long, strict pigtails and beige ribbons. Another interesting series by David Cobham (Bernard’s Watch, Woof, Out of Sight). Novel by BB. Pic from ep 11.

I found this by coincidence and don’t know all episodes, yet.

Nice 1920s setting and clothes. Obiously few or very few scenes. Main characters are 3 brothers. Needs to be checked for other actresses (women ?) and also for sailor suits and bedrooms or other scenes of interest. At least shirtless scenes of the boys.

Rating 6 for now. Available on DVD.

Comment: At least one blonde girl, around 11 or 12 yo in rare pigtails on the front, only plaited on the upper half and only of some of her hair. Also in unbraided pigtails and open hair. And a younger, blonde girl with pigtails and ponytail (ep 11). Pic 1 from ep 1.

Very interesting series. Also on my bedroom blog, rating 5.

For pigtails, rating 5-6 for now. Series itself rating ~7. Also soon on my bib overalls blog (girl, woman, rating 5).

Obviously still not on DVD. German title “Ein Rucksack voller Abenteuer” English title “A Knapsack Full of Adventures”.

Comment: At least 12 or 13 yo Saoirse Ronan in blonde, long pigtails. Often with a hat. I think set in the 1910s (WWI?) but looks quite Western-like. Also one braid on front and the other on the back, and also open hair.

Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 3) and my bedroom blog, rating 4.

I only have checked it at high speed and some time ago, so needs rechecking for pigtails including other actresses.

Rating 7 for now.

Comment: At least 14 or 15 yo Marianne Fortier sometimes in quite long, dark pigtails.

Very good coming of age movie with some perfect scenes and music. I almost forgot making this entry. I haven’t seen it for some time, but I assume rather few pigtails scenes. Not sure of some few other (younger) girls or women.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, rating 7) and my Lederhosen blog.

For pigtails rating 6, much more for the movie itself. International title: Mommy Is at the Hairdresser’s. The best scene has different (worse) music on some other dubbed versions.

Update 4: The Waltons

waltons-s2waltons-s2b

Next to the main characters, I also found Sissy Spacek, around 23 yo in pigtails as pregnant Sarah in s2e2 (pic 1) and another teen girl as Indian with a black wig at a stage play (season 2 as well).

I like Sissy Spacek, often playing nice farm movies and sometimes wearing bib overalls.

Main entry, rating 10 (Elizabeth, Mary-Ellen and Erin)
