Comment: At least Jenna Ortega as tomboy Mary-Ann in bib overalls and long, dark pigtails, woven at the back of her head and the pigtails lay both over her shoulders and also back or one each.

Nice remake, but I prefer the classic series.

More pics on my overalls blog, rating 6. Here rating 5-6. But I have to rewatch it.

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: 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: 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.

Starring Julian aka Juliancito Bravo.

Not bad, but the girl is quite young.

Comment: At least one girl at school in quite long, modern, blonde pigtails. Maybe some more girls and/or women?

Has been aired some time ago and I haven’t seen it completely.

More infos on my bedroom blog, rating 6.

For pigtails, rating at least 5-6, but I assume rather few good scenes. The darkhaired, younger main character don’t have pigtails.

–Comment: At least 12 yo Mackenzie Foy at school in raw denim overalls and dark pigtails. I think rather few good scenes as she also has open hair. The pigtails are rather modern, woven to the back of her head.

On my overalls blog rating 7 (also boys in overalls).

Currently running is the 2017 remake, rating 6 (another girl).
