Your response to the comment on the kids roughing up a pair of jeans in a 50s TV show: "Spin and Marty" was a recurring serial and was part of the Mickey Mouse Club in the 50s. If that show ran over there in the UK, then you'd likely have seen it. Or... with the way we're able to enjoy "vintage" shows through cable and networks, you may have seen it through one of those outlets more recently. Similar serials were "The Hardy Boys" (that reappeared as a new show in the 70's with Nancy Drew Mysteries) and "Corky and White Shadow," the tomboy with the white dog out west.
Friendship happily accepted.What impressed me about the films was that the plotting and acting seemed natural,not stilted or overly self conscious as so many done by re enactors come across as being.The last time I was in front of a camera it was to portray a zombie nazi colonel!
