Comment: Ham Larsen (pictured, right), his sister in this film Hollye Holmes (standing left) and Susan Damante in dark blue denim bibs. Mostly in bibs the boy. Chopping a tree and on a swing. This is a famous film and even more famous story/family. It’s also a very good entertaining family film with the family in free nature with a bear and in a cabin. But I don’t like this film, there are better and more modern versions (I think mostly without bibs). The kids are also very young. 2 sequels of this film with this actors (except for the girl). I have to check the other versions, too. There are also earlier versions of Swiss Family Robinson. I saw parts of film 2 and/or 3 and older Ham Larson also wears bibs. This later films I would possibly rate 5 or more, but have to check complete films to check amount and details of bib scenes.
Update: I now also have entry of 3rd film “Mountain Family Robinson” (1979).
