Rating: ***
Comment: Some girls in pigtails like these 2 in s1e6. One young blonde girl in b&w, set probably in the 1930s like many of the episodes, and another, a bit older darkhaired girl in long pigtails. Maybe some more (including women) in other episodes?

Also boys and girls in bib overalls (other blog rating 7) and boys in Lederhosen (rating up to 8 but that one not available on DVD).

I don’t like the girls here.

So rating 3 for now only.

Comment: Some girls in pigtails. I first thought, that I already had an entry and just wanted to make an update of the redhaired girl. Series is currently running weekends on German DasErste (season 1).

My favourite is blonde Paulina (Tabea Hug, pics 1+3 from ep 43=season 4, so ~11 yo, but also younger shown) in long pigtails. Pic 4 showing young Lilie (s1e4) in blonde, looped pigtails. I think also later in regular ones and other hair styles.

Pic 2 showing a redhaired girl (Zora Achtnich as Celine) with rather short pigtails in ep 6. I think also other (older) girls and maybe women in pigtails. I don’t remember all episodes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (f,m rating up to 6 including firefighters) and on my shiny shorts blog.

Rating even 7 for now.

Comment: At least this girl, I think Tammy Shields in rather short, thin, blonde pigtails. Her pigtails flying up and dancing due to supernatural powers (of Joey) or telekinesis.

Quite funny. Finally some flying up pigtails.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boys rating 4).

There are better movies. Nice 80s toys and bedroom. Also soon on that blog.

For pigtails rating 4-5 only. I think rather few good scenes.

Coming next: a boy in pigtails.

Comment: Some, mainly younger and darkhaired girls in pigtails. At least one younger blonde girl. Plaiting scenes near the beginning and touching own pigtails. Also wet hair in a creek. Most pigtails are rather short (and thin) and have ribbons (different colors).

Interesting movie. Rated R. Fantasy/Coming-of-age movie. Not sure about the time setting. Maybe 1960s or 70s?

For pigtails rating ~5-6.

Comment: One young, blonde girl with very long pigtails. Around 1m. Also wet and shirtless. I think also a darkhaired woman or older girl at least with a long shoulder braid. Maybe some more supporting actresses.

Quite interesting movie. But pigtails are thick.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: Obviously Katharina Thalbach, around 24 yo but much younger looking, in long, blonde pigtails and some other, younger girls at school in mainly or only dark blonde pigtails (also rear view) but mainly from a distance. Also other hairstyles and pigtails stucked up as a crown and/ or looped. Not sure about women.

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed some parts.

Famous and quite interesting movie with some good plots (1 Oscar), but I don’t like at all 13 yo but much younger looking David Bennent as ~11 yo Oskar with his annoying voice. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4.

For pigtails rating 5.

Comment: At least this girl in long, blonde pigtails in the pilot. Not sure about her name, obviously Kim Richard as younger sister. (Looks much older to me).

I don’t remember all episodes. Probably some more girls or women in pigtails?

Also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 10, TOP#4) and soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~5.

Great 70s series. Unfortunately not on DVD. Handsome Lance.

For pigtails rating 5-6 for now.

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.
