Bib occurence: medium ?
Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: At least a teen boy in medium blue bibs (pictured left in the background on left) and one younger girl in dark blue bibs (pictured right in the background sitting, not sure if raw denim).
This is a sequel to “When Every Day Was the Fourth of July” (1978, see that entry, starring Katy Kurtzman in bibs, rating 6). It’s about a Jewish-American family in the late 1930s and include boxing scenes. I think I have seen this movie, but can’t remember all scenes. Looks good and seems to include rural/farm content set in Connecticut. Directed by Dan Curtis (“Burnt Offerings”), main character is 13 yo Ronnie Scribner (see clip). He also starred in Salem’s Lot 1979 and LHOTP. Also starring 10 yo Louanne Sirota. The film was nominated for a Young Artis Award.
I have to check this film again. Rating 6 for now.
