E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

19 Feb


Steven Spielberg film about kids and an E.T. 4 Oscars.
Year: 1982
Year in film: 1980s?
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boy Elliott 10 ys. , a girl ~5, a woman
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, now DVD
Bib occurence: low
Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Everone knows this film. And I thought I also knew it. I remember the  E.T. and some famous scenes but never noticed special bib scenes. Then I saw this film in a list at another bib blog that Dee Wallace weared (light blue) bibs. I also first thought of young Drew Barrymore. But in a trailer is also Henry Thomas in dark blue bibs. And they look great. I have to see the entire movie again, but I will wait  for the next TV broadcast of if I find a cheap DVD. Good and funny film. But I remember only few bib scenes. So rating 5. Possibly going up.

Edit: I bought this DVD (remastered Version). This is my 2nd purchase since this blog (other was The River). Usually I don’t buy films, that I know and that are often on TV.

Henry Thomas wears bibs only in one long scene (~8 minutes and therein only some minutes, mostly in dark light. At least one good scene of full body front and back with good lighting. He looks small and thin.
Before and after that he wears a white pantyhose with and without a shirt (or should this be undergarment?)
Drew Barrymore in black bibs in some scenes, in one carried by her mom on her shoulders. Before that, Dee Wallace in a very short scene.

So this film is a very good family entertainment with some touching scenes and also showing life of an US family of the 80s, but not a must have for bib fans. So rating 5 because of this good film.

There must be additional scenes (or stills) with him on other DVD editions.

    Thanks db1. But I don’t spent that huge amount of money. And I don’t want to promote that here. The color of the GAP bibs look much lighter now. And who gives the guarantee
    that this is authentic? And what should I do with it?
