Update 3: The Dinosaur Hunter

21 Jan


As announced, some more pics of this great movie. I currently don’t have the time to check this at slow speed. But I don’t remember better scenes. There are also several young men in bibs.

Pics 1-4 from the first 3rd. Daniel shoveling hay, also bending forwards. Sleeveless white shirt. Pic 2 a milking scene, also another hay scene of both (front view, Julia sitting).

Pic 3 a great walking scene of Daniel in hickory stripes. Also dad in bibs. Pic 4 below a different young girl in bibs at church near the beginning, also later outside but from a distance. Unpictured at church: both sitting on the floor. Julia with a straw hat and jacket.

Pic 5 is from the 2nd third. Julia dancing in the rain at night. More wet and muddy scenes of both later but mainly dark lit. Unpictured: Daniel dining at a table in black appearing bibs (raw denim) and black sweater. He just wore 2 pairs but in combination with several shirts.




Update: The Ghost of Cypress Swamp

20 Jan


Two more pics of Jeff East. Interesting movie with nice 1910s/western-like adventure setting. But I haven’t found clips in better image quality. Maybe there aren’t any (much better ones) of this 1977 Disney TV movie, I think just available on VHS. And still on YouTube.

Bu he’s quite old anyway.

Main entry, still rating 4



Update: The Adventures of Ociee Nash

19 Jan


Some more and better pics of this one taken from some other trailers and clips. Previously just a headshot in poor quality (bibs appeared too light). Confirmed full length bibs, different colored straps. Also sitting scenes and men in bibs, too. Nice dark bibs but probably not raw denim. Very early 1890s setting. I don’t know of any boys in bibs, yet.

One more pic in the main entry, still rating 6.


Still needs to be checked completely. Also soon on my pigtails blog.

Update 2: The Dinosaur Hunter

18 Jan


I now have rechecked the complete movie (at high speed). There are many good scenes, so it needs for more posts and I have to recheck it at slow speed. I have added my favourite scenes (of Bill Switzer), I didn’t remember some scenes, like lying on the ground, near the end (pic 1). Even more scenes in raw denim bibs.

Perfect, but rather brief rear (and front) view of the raw denim bibs while walking and also standing with hands in pockets in hickory striped ones, (pic 2+3 both in the 1st third). Also a milking scene and a hay scene of Alison Pill, always in the same faded, oversized bibs).

Pic 4, the riding scene in the 2nd third. Also previously both on one horse (Bill in hickory stripes sitting on front). Pic 5 is a short mud fight in the last 3rd. Also more wet scenes of both in heavy rain (Bill in raw denim) but dark lit. At least one other girl in the first half.



Iowa’s One-room Schoolhouses

17 Jan


IPTV documentary, 1h
Year: 2006 ?
Year in film: 1930s, 40s ?
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys ~6-14 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurrence: medium+ ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: I only found a 3 minute clip called “Teaching in an Iowa One-room Schoolhouse” on YouTube showing this older boy in bibs (pic 2, no better views) and a younger boy in bibs, sitting from a distance (side view). Also b&w photos younger and older boys, one blonde boy in hickory stripes.

I don’t know the complete documentary which is 1 hour. I found a 1979 clip with another boy in color, but probably from a different documentary. An earlier upload of the clip pictured was probably from 2006. The DVD from 2009? Regional Emmy Award.

Can’t say much more.  DVD should be available, but I couldn’t find it on IPTV nor PBS shop. OOP?

Rating around 3-4 for the preview clip but probably (much) higher. There’s another clip called “Consolidation Brings the End to Iowa’s One-room Schoolhouses” (no notable scenes in the preview). The icon on YouTube showing barefooted boys running out of the school (color scene, pic 1), but the icons are not in the clips (but available in high res on Google Images). So at least 4 boys in bibs in the color scenes (probably not much more there, as the room is quite small, but probably 6-8). Bird’s eye view of the class showing the icon of clip 1. Two blonde boys in checkered shirts might be brothers.

Rating ~5-6.

Who in bibs: Percy ~5

Comment: And another Our Gang movie. Leonard Landy standing and sitting (at the end) in faded bibs with overlapping straps. Rather few scenes.

I have better movies with him, where he’s older, also colorized. Nice ghost plot, though.

So rating 3-4 only (but one of the better rating 3 ones). The last Hal Roach Studio film and the 2nd with Landy. Unlike most others of the cast, he died late in 2017 but only did movies until 1941.

Comment: Another suggestion. Thanks very much! Young man and should be other men and/or older teen boys and young ladies in bibs.

Artyom Semakin (Артём Семакин) as computer genius Gena (Гена), pic 1 from ep 3, pic 3 from ep 6 sitting with both straps down. Pic 2 showing a lady in a turqouise bibs-like dress or shortalls or similar, maybe Victoria Aizentir (Виктория Айзентир) as Vika in ep 15, also dancing.

I have briefly checked more than 10 episodes but only found rather few scenes and noone else in bibs.

Russian title: FM и ребята, what means FM and Guys.

The boy is too old and not handsome (later also in shorter hair but maybe not in bibs anymore?). No real bibs of the lady.

So for now rating 2-3 only. Please comment if there are better scenes/actors in other episodes.

Country: USA
Who in bibs: woman ~39 ?
Available on DVD: yes

Clothing occurrence: low-
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this dark haired lady, I think it’s Kate Capshaw (both Capshaw and Lucinda Jenney were also blonde, about the same age and looking similar) in faded bibs and sleeveless shirt. Few scenes only. Garden work.

Not bad.

So rating 4-5.

Also handsome boys in shorts (but I think not shiny).

She also starred in “Missing Children: A Mother’s Story” with at least a boy in bibs (coming soon).

Update: The Dinosaur Hunter

11 Jan


During the search for my Antaeus DVDr, I found my full TV recording of The Dinosaur Hunter (rating 10 as well). I copied it to my new computer but missed one file (last half or third). Some few better pics.

Very good are the raw denim bibs (also hands in pockets), but he mainly wore the hickory striped ones, also shirtless (pics 2+3).

I have to recheck this once more. I remember a very good scene inside and one riding pic and wet scenes.
