–Comment: I think Paloma Gómez as neighbor girl Valentina in long, blonde pigtails, also in looped pigtails and one pigtails on front and the other on the rear. Also a plaiting scene (close-up).

Interesting movie set in 1911.

Also on my sailor suit blog (boy, rating 4) and soon on my bedroom blog.

There’s also a sequel called “1919, crónica del alba” set 8 years later. Alternate title: Valentine. Starring Anthony Quinn.

Rating 5-6.

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.

Haley Mills also starred in Pollyanna (1960), no entry, yet.

Comment: At least Gina Gillespie in very long, dark pigtails. Also looped pigtails. Pic from s1e20. But she starred in 15 of the 30 episodes.

Also on my Western blog, rating 5.

I don’t know all episodes.

For this rating 6-7.

She also starred in some other Western series like Laramie, Tales of Wells Fargo and The Travels of Jamie McPheeters.

Comment: Some few girls at the very end of this movie dancing. Pigtails flying up.

Quite interesting and not bad, but I think very few and brief scenes.

Comment: Several girls at school at different age in pigtails. Different actresses in different seasons. Most and best scenes in seasons 2+3. Western(-like) setting in the 1910s or earlier. Nice dresses (mainly in season 1)

Pic 1 from s1e4, pics 2+4 from s2e5 showing a teen girl in long pigtails who touched (the top of) them. One younger girl in pic 4 sitting in pink (white appearing) clothes has long, dark pigtails on the back of her head (“modern style” braided).

Pic 3 showing a very young, blonde girl in s3e6. Behind her another, a bit older girl who is very good.

Not sure about women and braids.

Currently running on German’s Bibel TV. Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 5) and soon on my other blogs.

Comment: At least this Indian teen boy from the Blackfoots, Martin God Rider (1924-1966), I think in 3 pigtails (one additional one on the rear). Probably some more Indian men

Originally in b&w, this pics are from a colorized version.

I only have checked it briefly. Maybe women in pigtails as well? Shirley has curly hair, partly braided.

1936 novel by Muriel Denison aka Dennison.

Comment: At least this girl in quite short, thick, dark pigtails. Her mother touching one of her pigtails. Christmas themed episode. 28 minutes.

Set in a Latin-American village. Not sure about the time setting. They wore costumes in this episode. Maybe 1900s or more likely a bit later. 1930s ? Or even the 1950s? Based on a 1930s radio show.

Rating 4-5 only (for this episode). Maybe somemore and even better scenes in other episodes? I found this by coincidence.

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: I think some few girls only at school in pigtails. One blonde in protruding or looped pigtails and others in dark pigtails. But I think rather few scenes.

Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4 (AnnaSophia Robb).

Nice 1900s setting and good clothes.

For pigtails, rating 5-6.

Comment: Agnieszka Krukówna as 15 yo Janka (Janna in Germany) in medium long, blonde pigtails (pic from ep 7) but mainly in unbraided pigtails, and also other teen girls and probably girls and women. At school at least one in longer, dark pigtails (ep 4). And at least one with a braid. Many wearing dark blue sailor dresses. Also on my sailor suit blog rating 5, also showing Janka in unbraided pigtails. Pic 3 from ep 12?

Nice 1920s setting and lots of historical clothes (and hairstyles). Filmed in 1987. Many supporting actors, especially in ep 4 and 7, but mainly from a distance.

I also have her in Urwisy z Doliny Mlynów (1985) aka Die Kinder vom Mühlental (rating 6). Obviously much fewer pigtails in Janka. I still have to check the 3rd series.

Quite interesting, but few good scenes. I prefer the 1st series.

So rating 5 only.
