Bib occurence: very often
Rating:  10/10
Rating: **********
Comment: Dragonfly nearly always wears bibs (2 different ones?, mostly medium blue with 3 buttons on each side). Swimming in jeans shorts (film 1+3). Little Jim only wears (light blue) bibs in film #5. Perfect films+photo gallery+behind the scenes etc. Least bib occurence in film #3, but with swimming scenes and touching music. I like all films, but mostly film #4, then 1+5. Also in bibs: Old Man Paddler, dad Till and the Swamp Robber. Age range 1x 8 ys (Tom Till), 1x 17yo (Big Bob Till). Dragonfly 12, Little Jim ~12. Poetry sometimes in baggy dark blue bibs. Most of the films showing authentic setting at the creek with messing and splashing around. Good country setting of the 50s with banjo and harmonica music.

Image showing Dragonfly (Kody Brown, pic 1 in film #4 + pic 3 on left with Luke Garmon as Tom Till in film #1). DVDs, at least the actual editions are RC 0. DVD extras: younger Kody Brown with longer flat hair (film #5) and later with longer spiked hair and a woman brushing his hair with her hands. Also in this films acting his sister Cassie who looks very similar. Big Bob Till ~17yo, often shirtless wears dark baggy bibs. like litte Tom. At least one actor (Poetry) lives or lived on a farm in real life (according to commentary), probably more. And I assume that the actors are also Christian in real life like the story. Pic 2 showing age rage, Mr. Till, Tom and Big Bob Till (played by Josh Garmon) in baggy bibs in film #1 Swamp Robber. Also good acting of girl Circus with blond pigtails, but not in bibs but regular tight jeans. Worst film is film#2, I think, however good plot and best wet scenes. Mostly sitting in canoes. DVD extras showing a glimpse of Dragonfly’s red underwear under the bibs.

Update: Wet scenes especially in films #3 and #2.

Also see (Dragonfly, Poetry, Little Jim).

I watch all DVD very often, again and again. And after many years this is still my 2nd favourite movie next to Honkytonk Man. Maybe I should consider the Sugar Creek Gang movies to rank 1 (5 movies and more actors, wet scenes, etc.). But I also like Kyle Eastwood, the plot and the setting with dusty farm ground and that professional movie also contains coming-of-age scenes that kids movies can’t have. So you can’t really compare them.

Now also on my pigtails, bedroom and shiny shorts blog.

Films #1, #2, #3, 4, #5
