Comment: At least Lena Wisborg as Emil’s young sister in blonde, short and thin pigtails. Maybe some more supporting actors like at school (ep 9).

I never liked this series, especially not Emil. And Ida is very young. There are better Astrid Lindgren series.

Needs to be rechecked later. Currently running on TV.

Please note that there’s a TV series and some shortened movies, containing only parts of the episodes.

Also on my sailor suit blog under “Emil och griseknoen” rating 6 and my bedroom blog rating 3.

Comment: As announced this latest version of Anne of Green Gables starring Amybeth McNulty. Maybe also other teen girls or women in pigtails, but I haven’t seen anyone, yet. Anne often wearing a flat hat. Nice costumes, also of the boys. Jerry (Aymeric Jett Montaz) probably also wore bib overalls in the barn next to an leather apron.

It also includes the famous pigtail pulling scene in ep 3 (pic 2). Better pic and GIF here

http://previously.tv/anne/in-episode-3-anne-with-an-e-strikes-back/

The actress is a bit older, around 16 in season 1. Anne in the novels is 11 yo. But in most movies she’s older as well. But I don’t like much this actress.

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 4-5 for now only. I have to recheck this later. Also for my other blogs. Earlier versions collected here

Rating:  4/10 *

Comment: Some girls, especially at school, some in short, few others in long and one in dark, very long pigtails outside school with pigtails swinging at her front. Main character, 6 yo Annemarie in blonde, unbraided pigtails. She also cut off parts of her hair. Pic 1 from ep 4, pics 2+3 from ep 3. Rather few school scenes and ep 4-6 has a different actress as 10 yo main character. Needs to be checked more carefully.

Has been aired around Christmas, but I missed most parts this time. I have seen and checked it earlier, but long time ago.

Also very nice costumes and both boys and girls in sailor suits and Lederhosen (other blog, rating 9.

Update: Anne of Green Gables (2016)

anneofgreengables2016danneofgreengables2016c

As announced, some more pics of this nice movie which has been aired at Christmas.

There are 2 girls being pulled at their pigtails. Also one blonde. And another angle of the redhaired Anne (rear view pulling, see main entry).

I think also some few more girls at school in pigtails or braids. Also in sailor dresses.

The 2017 movie starring Amybeth McNulty also coming soon.

Comment: Obviously Gina Gillespie in very long, dark blonde pigtails pictured in s6e8 (1961). Probably some more girls and women (seasons 1-5 are in b&w). She also starred in s5e26, but I haven’t seen this one (probably similar). I also have her in Law of the Plainsman, rating 7 (b&w).

/2017/08/28/law-of-the-plainsman/

Also some Indians in pigtails like Joseph Vitale in s3e8 and others in s3e7.

Very good and even in color.

Also soon on my Western blog, rating ~7-8.

Comment: One blonde girl, I think Julia Jeker in quite lang pigtails also some girls at school, also darkhaired.

I found this by coincidence and don’t know the complete movie yet.

Based on a 1945 picture book and there’s also a 1964 short film. Quite Heidi-like. But I never heard of it before.

Rating 6-7 for now. Obviously an interesting movie. Nice costumes (also boys). English title: A Bell for Ursli.

Interesting movie set in 1911.

Comment: At least this blonde girl in medium length pigtails. Not sure about her name (it’s not Hayley Mills). Probably her friend Lallie, played by Wendy Turner (Deborah Walley is much older ~18 yo).

I don’t remember the complete movie.

Also on my sailor suit blog (Mills, rating 5) and my bib overalls blog (boy, rating 6).

Typical, but nice 1900s Disney musical.

For pigtails rating 4-5 for now only.
