Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Reid Binion (as John Harper) in blue bibs (pictured) and film sister Amy Binion. This is a (I assume bad) remake of the classic 1955 b/w version starring Robert Mitchum and Billy Chapin (see also that entry, rating 7/10). The boy looks much older here and is overweighted. Girl is young (as in 1st film) and wears lighter blue bibs. I don’t know / don’t remember this complete film. But It’s definitely not as good and famous as the original one. I also don’t like Richard Chamberlain here with his short hair. At least a color film and also the girl in bibs, but some films are better in b/w. Girl not always in bibs. I don’t like too thin boys, but don’t like this boy either. Rating 4 for now only. Sorry no better pic (in the trailer). Most infos and pics are about the original one.

Probably much better than thought. And the teen boy doesn’t appear overweighted. Rating 5-6 now. 2 more pics
