Comment: At least 2 girls. One in long dark, pigtails, another one in looped blonde pigtails (Giorgia Tartaglia ?).

I’ve checked this movie some time ago, searhing for my unknown Italian movie for my sailor suit blog.

I don’t remember much. Interesting movie, though.

For pigtails, rating 3-4 only.

English title: Childhood Enemies.

Update 4: Little House on the Prairie


Some more scenes of season 1 (s1e2+3), I recently bought. I think pic 2 from s1e2, others from s1e3?

Pic 1 showing a blond girl at school. Not sure if this is Olga, looks a bit different.

Pic 2 showing Laura unbraiding her pigtails for sleep. I don’t have a tag for unbraiding, so I use the tag plaiting. Pic 3 showing her in looped pigtails.

Nice one-room schoolhouse scenes (mainly in s1e2). Also on my bib overalls blog.

Main entry here, rating 10



Kukacka v temném lese


Drama/war film

Year in film: 1940s
Country: CZ, Poland
Who in pigtails: Emilka ~13 ??
Who in pigtails 2: others ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Pigtail occurence: medium- ?
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: At least this blonde teen girl in quite long regular and looped pigtails and other hairstyles, open hair and crown. I think rather few good scenes. There are also other girls, but not sure if in pigtails. I think this is Miroslava Souckova? But she was ~18 yo in 1984. Or the movie was taped much earlier.

Correct title: Kukačka v temném lese . English title: Cuckoo in a Dark Forest.

Rating 6-7 for now, although I prefer dark pigtails.

The Sullivans (1976) – ep 132


Next to Kitty, there’s another girl in ep 132 (season 3, ~ 1978) in dark, long, looped pigtails. Not sure about her name, maybe Sigrid Thornton ~ 18 yo.

I don’t like looped pigtails nor the thick ones of Kitty. I also don’t like much this series. Most or all characters are too old. Maybe there are some more supporting actors.

Main entry, rating 3

Comment: Some darkhaired young girls in pigtails, at least one with very long pigtails. Others with their pigtails or braids bound up (crown and looped pigtails) also a blonde young lady (Kirsten Dunst ?). There are 3 younger girls including Angourie Rice, Oona Laurence and Addison Riecke. Not sure who is the girl pictured, probably Oona Laurence.

I don’t know the complete movie. So needs to be rechecked later.

Nice costumes and early setting.

There’s also a 1971 movie with at least a young girl in pigtails, coming soon.

Comment: Some few girls in pigtails including this girl with blonde looped ones, I think 13 yo Charlotte Lorenzen. Also some few others at school and elsewhere including blonde buns (young girl), short dark and regular pigtails. And the sister of the older Hans, set around 8 years later in the 2nd half of the movie. But rather few scenes.

Also on my sailor suit blog (boy, rating 3) and soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~4.

Quite interesting movie, fresh and handsome kids, but only in the first half.

Could be better. I don’t like much looped pigtails.

Rating 3-4 only.

Update of Anne of Green Gables (2016) coming next (aired on Christmas).

–Comment: At least this young girl at school (PE) rope jumping in long, blonde pigtails. So pigtails flying up. Also in large, looped pigtails.

Has been aired yesterday, but I only have checked it briefly before on the mediathek.

Interesting movie and plot, mainly about boys. Nice PE shorts (including red and white), but not shiny.

Rating 5-6. English title: Sugar Sand.

–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.

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.
