Comment: Jack Pauleson (pictured) in hickory striped bibs (also wet and also showing from behind and lying on his stomach).

Thanks a lot for this suggestion! I have seen this movie several times, last time maybe more than 5 years ago and obviously didn’t take much attention to bibs then. I think I still have somewhere some recordings. There are also perfect scenes with yellow shorts (shirtless) at a camping site. Also women in shorts. So a movie for everyone. There is a 1995 sequel which is more often shown but maybe not as good as the original 70s classic.

First I considered rating 9-10 but at a close up view these bibs are hickory striped. Also rather few scenes. There are scene with many people, so maybe there are some more actors in bibs.
Directed by Joe Dante, starring Bradford Dillman and Barbara Steele. Rated R.

Update: Now I have seen this completely. Much fewer bib scenes than thought. In fact only 1 scenes (interrupted by other scenes), so 2-3 minutes only of this boy. No others in bibs, althought there are hundreds of actors. Though perfect swimwear and shorts (m/f/kids). Good horror, although a bit funny and there are spookier horror films.

Rating 7.
