Comment: Bobby Larson in dark blue bibs and straw hat (pictured). Not sure if this is still raw denim, most likeley heavy worn, also not sure of others in bibs (perhaps men). I don’t know the complete film and have only seen some parts, but looks quite good. Authentic as set and produced in the 1940s. I also like the clothings and caps of the other boys. Larson died in 2002 aged 72 and was an elementary school teacher. I like those historic movies and the plot is about bullying. Also starring Barton MacLane, Jan Wiley and Conrad Binyon (Courage of Lassie, 1946). Running time 65 minutes. Available as single DVD or on a compilation Box. Perhaps even worth buying. According archive.org already in Public Domain, but not yet available for streaming or download there. I assume many bib scenes and not really farm content, should be big city. Rating 7 for now. No trailers.
