Comment: At least main character Heidi, played by Elsbeth Siegmund in very long, dark pigtails, also looped.

Today on 3sat. Also the 1955 color sequel.

Not bad, but I think rather few pigtails scenes. Needs to be recheckd later and also the later Heidi movies.

I have some few other Heidi movies on my Lederhosen blog. But also very few, almost no Lederhosen. Some showing Heidi or teen girl Klara in sailor (style) dresses.

I think I don’t like this version and actress. Nice room.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: At least Helen Grieve in blonde, rather long pigtails. Also riding.

Interesting movie. I like the actress and pigtails. But have to check the complete movie, again.

So rating 6-7 for now.

Also on my bib overalls blog, (young boy) rating 5.

The 1983 color remake starring Nicole Kidman is also of interest (soon on my overalls blog). But I don’t know of pigtails scenes in there.

Comment: Betsy Gay (“Our Gang“, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938)“) in long, blonde pigtails.

I like long, blonde pigtails, but I think rather few scenes here. Unfortunately, she did few movies.

Rating 6.

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: 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 Francesca Blanchard obiously dark blond and longer, thick pigtails and bib overalls.

And yet another one from my bib overalls blog (rating 7).

I don’t know this movie as it’s not available on DVD nor online (only made for the big screens). Damn. Looks very interesting.

Rating 6 for now.

Comment: Gabriele Michel in long, dark pigtails on he front. I only found her in pigtails but only checked the 1st of the 2 episodes. Obviously few other girls and women and mainly with a bun.

Some interesting scenes set in the 1930s.

I prefer her 12 yo film brother (Lederhosen blog rating 4) and soon on my bedroom blog.

She also starred in the 1979 sequel series “Ein Kapitel für sich” wrongly credited on IMDb as a different actress Gabrielle with 2 L’s. I found around 10 or 20 mistakes on IMDb within a short time and lots of movies, keywords and infos like birth dates missing. Even wrong movie posters. It’s a shame. You can’t trust this site alone.

I like long and strict pigtails. But she’s quite old.

Rating 6-7.
