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: At least Ginger Rogers as tomboy Ellie in long, dark pigtails. There’s also a young girl (7 yo Joan Carroll) but I think not in pigtails. Maybe other women as well?

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie and can’t say much more.

Nominated for an Oscar.

Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Anne Shirley as Anne Shirley in long, blonde red pigtails. Often wearing a flat straw hat. Looks quite old to me. Also including the famous pulling of pigtails scene.

Another but early version. I haven’t seen the complete movie, but I think I prefer the color movies and also the other actresses.

So rating 3 for now only.

A new CBC series is in  production starring Amybeth McNulty. Interesting.

Update: Our Gang

There are also at least 2 more boys in pigtails.

First Buckwheat (pics 1+2) looking similar like Farina but mainly with smaller and looped pigtails here. Pic 1 colorized from movie “Divot Diggers” (1936)

I’ve also seen a pic of Stymie (pic 2) with long pigtails but they were probably just attached to his hat. Both b&w from unknown movies but most likely from earlier films.

Main entry, boy/girls rating 5 (incl. pulling at pigtails)

Comment: Some few teen girls at school at the beginning of the movie. Maybe some few more supporting actresses later?

The teacher touching the hair of one of the girls but not directly the pigtails.

Very good and funny movie starring Bill Mumy in bib overalls (overalls blog rating 6).

Nice 1900 setting but unfortunately rather few good pigtails scenes.

Comment: Some few boys, mainly younger with sidelocks. Not sure if some braided as well. Also at least on woman with a braid. But rather few scenes.

Rating 2-3 for that hairstyle. At least some boys and rare hairstyle.
