Rating: ****
Comment: Red haired and freckled ~ 11 yo Irish Niamh McGirr in stone washed blue bibs (and light red rubber boots) and Susan Lynch in black bibs, one strap down, also doing farm work (pictured).

2 good farm scenes of the girl (also showing from behind) and some few and short other scenes in the house and garage. She also wears regular jeans and a dark blue or black school uniform (skirt + bow tie, also sitting in that with legs/feet on a couch). Sitting in bibs at a table, but only showing briefly from the side/behind. One short scene of her film mom in black bibs shoveling hay to cows on the left (partly shown, bad view mainly from the side and a bit blurred).

The movie is quite good also showing some scenes at school (boys and girls in school uniforms) and also a soap box derby (some few older teen boys in racing coveralls).

Rating 3-4. Bibs are a bit baggy and I like red haired actors, farm work, but the best scenes for me is the sitting scene (few seconds). The movie itself is a bit better (rating 4-5). ON DVD. German title: Das große Rennen. I thought, I already had that entry, but it’s another soap box movie.
