mid-70s movie

A movie I saw when I was a kid in the early 80s.  Pretty sure it was in color but we had a b&w tv set…  Movie was made in the 70s.  Can’t recall any actors. I thought for awhile it was David Keith as the lead, but after checking his bio list on IMDB, I don’t believe it was.  I do remember watching it late at night, around Christmas time.  The parts I remember:

Single dad (not sure if he was widowed or divorced) and his young daughter move in with his parents – they live on a farm, I think, or at least in a farm-style house in a small town
Single dad’s hippie-type friends come visit, around Christmas time, as I recall them singing “We wish you a Merry Christmas” in some folk-type way
Single dad decides to leave daughter with his parents (she may have wanted to stay with them)
After dad leaves, the daughter tells her grandparents that she wants her daddy (I have a vague memory of her saying “I want my daddy so bad”)
Single dad leaving town on a motorcycle, crying
Grandpa and daughter chasing after single dad in Grandpa’s truck to catch up with him

Comedy Western 60s

I remember seeing this when I was a kid in the early 80s.  Pretty sure it was from the 60s. I remember it being in colour.  Two young boys, one blonde, one dark haired (I think he was Mexican). Grew up together like brothers, grew old together. One plot point I remember is that the Mexican boy’s little sister was kidnapped by Indians.  When they were adults, he finally found her.  She was still living with the tribe, and happily married.

80s TV Crime Drama

 

Time Frame 83-86; Probably between 8:00 and 10:00 p.m., as I had to go to bed and only saw the first half hour ish.
I don’t remember any actors
It was in English, and in color
What I remember:
A young white women and a young latino man (named Angel) are in a play together, then you find out soon that they have been dating, and she’s pregnant (I specifically remember one of the brothers saying to their father “Some Jose got her pregnant”).  Her two punk brothers and their gang first taunt him, taking his jacket and sweater.  Then they start chasing him down the street.  Angel runs in to a house of an elderly couple, pleading with them to help him.  The old man pushes the Angel outside and locks the door.  The gang then proceeds to beat Angel to death.

 

And then I had to go to bed, so I don’t know what happened.
