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: Obviously Gina Gillespie in very long, dark blonde pigtails pictured in s6e8 (1961). Probably some more girls and women (seasons 1-5 are in b&w). She also starred in s5e26, but I haven’t seen this one (probably similar). I also have her in Law of the Plainsman, rating 7 (b&w).


Also some Indians in pigtails like Joseph Vitale in s3e8 and others in s3e7.

Very good and even in color.

Also soon on my Western blog, rating ~7-8.

Comment: After The Bad Seed (1956, b&w, rating 9) again Patty McCormack in blonde, long pigtails. This time in color and 2 years later. Also touching her own pigtails.

I have briefly checked it some time ago and maybe The Bad Seed is even better, although or because of being b&w.

Rating 8-9 for now. I think not officially on DVD, just some DVDr.

Story 7: Pigtails and ropes


Next to the famous pulling at a pigtail (which ressembling a rope) there are also real ropes like this scene of Circus in The Sugar Creek Gang: The Great Canoe Fish (film #2). Even the same color! Swinging several times forth and back to Dragonfly who plays her brother in the movies. The pigtails of course are also swinging.

I’m watching the 5 DVD over and over again, but mainly watching for the bib overalls scenes (rating 10, sorry, no girls).

There’s also a rope in other movies like The Littlest Hobo, but I have to check for more. In the fairy tale Rapunzel, the hair is even used as a rope (2 life action movies, coming soon).

Comment: Alison Pill, this time in dark blonde, medium length pigtails and obviously a school uniform, I think a short skirt. Also with open hair. Rated R.

Pic 1 from a short clip. Pic 2 from movie “Baby” (2000), also in similar, even longer pigtails and white or beige bib overalls (soon here and also on my overalls blog, rating 6).

Sorry, I couldn’t find better pics to use. Some watermarked pics are on the web.

Needs to be rechecked, but I assume rather few, but very good scenes.

Comment: Carly Schroeder in short, blonde pigtails. One brief scene at the beginning only. She later wore a ponytail and mainly or only a jeans skirt.

Very pretty girl and very good movie, some very interesting scenes like Truth or Dare on a boat (Schroeder has to French kiss Culkin).

Rating almost 9, but as there is just one brief scene, rating 8 only. How could I miss it? I even own the DVD.

Also on my bedroom blog rating 4 (Culkin and Trevor Morgan).

Comment: One boy (or maybe 2 ?) in blonde pigtails (it’s just a wig). At least 2 scenes. First when they get the wig at the hairdresser (who also grabbing the pigtails) and later at the stage play.

Probably one of the best movies with a boy in pigtails yet (although it’s a wig).

The 1973 remake has been aired today and showing 2 boys in a blonde wig (in color). Post coming soon. Rating 7. Unfortunatley I missed most of the movie. I don’t like at all the 70s.


Rating 7-8 for this one. Please also check out my other blogs about this and other Erich Kästner movies.

During my Christmas break, I found lots of interesting pigtails movie (girls only).

And a Happy New Year 2017!
