Comment: At least this uncredited girl in dark and long pigtails.

Another interesting British short film (this time not CFF/CFTF).

I found it by coincidence and only have checked it briefly.

There are mostly boys shown (cycling in early 70s clothes).

Not bad.

Rating ~5.

Comment: At least this girl in thick and rather long pigtails. Not sure about her name either Suzanne Togni (or less likely Kimi Tallmadge). Togni in even longer pigtails also in many other episodes of this series and “Shadows of Fear (1970)” In 1968, there was a related BBC series “Adventure Weekly” with a different cast (Elizabeth Dear as girl Fred in dark, long pigtails) which also needs to be checked. Also related: Here Come The Double Deckers (1970). All based on Hal Roach’s “Our Gang”.

I found this by coincidence.

Also check out my bib overalls blog for several other CFF/CFTF movies.

Rating 4-5 for this one.

Comment: Some more girls in ep 6 (season 1). Two older girls, one blonde, the other darkhaired in the audience but most notable a younger girl in dark pigtails (medium length). I don’t know her name. Nice simple braids, also side view.

I’m still rechecking season 1.

This episode 6 is also one of the best showing the older brother working in bib overalls (other blog, rating 7).

For the pigtails rating 6-7. Update: I forgot one older teen girl or young woman in short thick dark pigtails at the end of this episode. (Rating ~3).

Main entry here, school scene, rating 5

Pigtail occurence: medium+ ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least Lena Wisborg as Emil’s young sister in blonde, short and thin pigtails. Maybe some more supporting actors like at school (ep 9).

I never liked this series, especially not Emil. And Ida is very young. There are better Astrid Lindgren series.

Needs to be rechecked later. Currently running on TV.

Please note that there’s a TV series and some shortened movies, containing only parts of the episodes.

Also on my sailor suit blog under “Emil och griseknoen” rating 6 and my bedroom blog rating 3.

Comment: I think some few girls in pigtails (at least 3) including this at school in s1e5 at 15 minutes. One blonde girl in thick and quite long, another ones in thinner pigtails.

I’m currently rewatching season 1 of this nice series (mainly for my bib overalls blog, rating 7).

The main characters are 2 boys and there’s also a tomboy with short hair. So I don’t remember other or even better scenes. Maybe none in season 3. But could be in season 2 (I don’t own). I think most women also wore short hair, what is quite surprisingly.

Rating 5, although few scenes.

Update: Even better a darkhaired girl in s1e6, rating 6-7 next to some more girls.

Comment: As announced this latest version of Anne of Green Gables starring Amybeth McNulty. Maybe also other teen girls or women in pigtails, but I haven’t seen anyone, yet. Anne often wearing a flat hat. Nice costumes, also of the boys. Jerry (Aymeric Jett Montaz) probably also wore bib overalls in the barn next to an leather apron.

It also includes the famous pigtail pulling scene in ep 3 (pic 2). Better pic and GIF here

http://previously.tv/anne/in-episode-3-anne-with-an-e-strikes-back/

The actress is a bit older, around 16 in season 1. Anne in the novels is 11 yo. But in most movies she’s older as well. But I don’t like much this actress.

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 4-5 for now only. I have to recheck this later. Also for my other blogs. Earlier versions collected here

Comment: One blonde girl, I think Julia Jeker in quite lang pigtails also some girls at school, also darkhaired.

I found this by coincidence and don’t know the complete movie yet.

Based on a 1945 picture book and there’s also a 1964 short film. Quite Heidi-like. But I never heard of it before.

Rating 6-7 for now. Obviously an interesting movie. Nice costumes (also boys). English title: A Bell for Ursli.

Comment: One girl in a dress, I think Virginia Fiol (“The Tripods”) in long, dark pigtails with ribbions. Set in the 1940s UK. Pigtails coming from the rear and are sometimes on her back.

Searching for some more Christain movies from publisher SCM Hänssler (“Papa Was a Preacher”), I found this one.

Quite interesting but movie seems quite boring.

For pigtails, rating 4-5.

Comment: At least this young girl in very long, blonde pigtails.

Comment: At least one girl, probably some more at school in long pigtails. Also outside with a straw hat and darker looking hair (other girl ?).

And another Australian series, I recently found.

I don’t know the complete series.

Quite interesting, but needs to be rechecked. Autobiographical 1955 novel by Alan Marshall. Set in the late 1900s.

Rating 4-5 for now.
