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 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.

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.

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 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.

Very interesting movie. I only have seen some parts. But I don’t remember much of it anymore.

Comment: Tineke Van Der Walle at least sometimes in long blonde pigtails. I don’t remember all episodes, but I think she mostly had a ponytail or else.

She also wore pink bib overalls and beige shortalls. I don’t like her glasses.

At least one other young blonde girl in a different Enid Blyton series (“The Enid Blyton Adventure Series”), coming soon. Surprisingly obviously no scenes in The Famous Five (1995) which is set in the 1950s. And in The Famous Five (1978) the girl wore short hair.

Rating 5 for now only. For more infos, see my other blogs.

Bib overalls rating 7 (mainly for the boy, very baggy), bedroom blog rating 4.
