Comment: One very young girl with very long, blonde pigtails and one of her older brothers pulling at both of her pigtails multiple times and even shaking her head. Then she turns around and chasing him. Probably more pigtails scenes, maybe also of others, but none of interest.

Another interesting pulling pigtails movie. But the girl is very young.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog (boys, girls mainly snow overalls, rating 3) and my bedroom blog, rating 3 as well with all 5 kids sharing one bed. Also other scenes of interest. Funny movie but there are better ones.

For more infos see my other blogs. English title “I Enjoy the World With You”, “With You the World is Fun”, With You the World Thrills Me” and “You Take the Kids!”.

For this brief scene rating 3 only due to her age.

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


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


Update: Anne of Green Gables (2016)


As announced, some more pics of this nice movie which has been aired at Christmas.

There are 2 girls being pulled at their pigtails. Also one blonde. And another angle of the redhaired Anne (rear view pulling, see main entry).

I think also some few more girls at school in pigtails or braids. Also in sailor dresses.

The 2017 movie starring Amybeth McNulty also coming soon.

Comment: Finally another pigtail pulling. As usual at school by a mean boy. Jordan-Claire Green (pictured) as 12 yo tomboy Emma often wearing blue bib overalls.

I didn’t remember this scene, and there must be another pulling scene, I think outside the class. I found it on my backups, searching for better (other) pics for my overalls blog (rating 7 as well). More pics and infos there.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Cavalcade of America: Three Young Kings

Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
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: One blonde girl with shorts pigtails and one darkhaired girl with thin and very long pigtails and a boy pulling or lifting one up.

Nice, early farm setting and also other scenes of interest like skinny dipping. But there are better movies. I think rather few good and brief pigtails scenes.

Correct title: Amintiri din copilărie, English title: Recollections from Childhood.

Rating 6-7.

Comment: There are mainly 3 sisters in pigtails shown. One young girl (Salomé Stévenin as Annie ?) in rather short pigtails (also worn as bun(s) and as a crown at the end), one older teen sister in long and dark pigtails and one older teen in blonde pigtails (also being pulled at one by Sophia Loren). One younger blond girl ~10 yo in Morocco (supporting actress).

Interesting movie and I have seen it completely online and almost bought it, as some boys and scenes are similar to my still missing unknown Italian movie.

Rating 6-7. The plot is a bit weak. There are many similar and better movies. The older girls are less frequently shown.

Rating: *****
Comment: One unknown teen girl in thick and long dark pigtails. And a teen boy pulling at one of them while dancing.

Directed by Montxo Armendáriz (“Secretos del corazón” / Secrets of the Heart). I’m still searching for an Italian assumed coming of age movie (see my sailor suit blog). And I almost bought both of the movies.

This movie is based on Armendáriz‘ childhood (1950s/1960s) but this scene is probably set in his youth so in the mid 1960s.

Rather few good scenes, mainly in the first half. And very few pigtails scenes. I don’t like very thick pigtails. But these are rare especially that long.

So rating 4-5 only.

Das doppelte Lottchen (1950)

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.
