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

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.

Rating: *******
Comment: Jutta and Isa Günther as 10 yo main characters in rather short pigtails (also looped) and some other girls in pigtails and braids. Also plaiting scenes, touching own and pulling at the sister’s pigtail.

Interesting classic movie and famous plot. There are some, mainly modern remakes but I think none showing pigtails.

I have to recheck the complete movie. English title: Two Times Lotte. One or both girls in a sailor dress (soon on my other blog) rating 5.

Rating 7-8 for now.

Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least María Clara Fernández de Loaysa in very long, dark pigtails. Also in a dark blue sailor dress or similar (soon on my sailor suit blog rating ~5). Her mother (or other woman) obviously helped her plaiting the braids according to a pic (one half is unbraided) (or even cuts them off ?, looking very strict). Also wearing a ponytail, open hair and maybe other hairstyles.

Obviously an interesting and controversial movie. But I haven’t seen it entirely yet. English title: Cousin Angelica.

I somehow don’t like this girl. Might be younger than looking here, I think 12 yo.

Rating 5 for now only.

Directed by Carlos Saura. Another movie from him coming soon.

Update: I now found the plaiting scene. No cutting off.


Update: Schloss Einstein


Some more interesting girls and scenes in this series. Again all pics from the compilation DVDs.

Pic 1 showing I think Monika (played by Franziska Stürmer) in ep 100 (season 2).

Pic 2 showing little Emely (Paula Schramm) helping braiding (or similar) teen girl Manuela (Emely Neubert). Emely (Paula) also wears looped pigtails in s4e1 (ep 170). Another plaiting scene of 4 girls in ep 183 (coming soon).

Pic 3 showing farm girl Sylvia (Kristin Bohm) in ep 181 (s4).

Pic 4 showing the upcoming child care worker Nadja (Judith Klein) in ep 233 (season 5) in rather short blonde pigtails or maybe one single shoulder braid.
