Cross Creek (purchased)

4 Feb


Biography/drama. Nominated for 4 Oscars
Year: 1983
Year in film: 1928, 1930s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Paul ~10, Floyd 20, Ellie 18, Marjorie 29
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Bib occurence: medium
Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Dana Hill as tomboy Ellie, looking much younger (pic 2, also in other posts like “The Kids Who Knew Too Much”, rating 7), 10 or 11 yo Cary Guffey as Paul (Bud Spencer movies, rating up to 6), Ike Eisenmann as Floyd (farm work, partly wet, also in LHOTP and “The Amazing Cosmic Awareness of Duffy Moon”, both rating 7), Mary Steenburgen as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, author of “The Yearling” (1994 movie rating 7), some men and maybe others in bibs.

This movie obviously has it all. Boys, girls, woman and men in bibs. I found it by searching all 80s US movies on IMDb for my shiny shorts blog.

2 hours. Dana Hill (“European Vacation”) died in 1996 aged 32.

Update: Even one more boy in hickory striped bibs, but very few good scenes. Previously rated 8, now 5. More details and pics at

    So I downloaded this movie Cross Creek from a free torrent and watched it. I hate to tell you, but this movie is going to fall short of your high expectations. Only a few and short scenes of boys in overalls. Mostly it is the main girl character in dirty old overalls and a few old men also in dirty old overalls. I would not highly rate this movie any better than a 4 or 5 out of 10.

      Too late, but thanks!
      Maybe I like it more. I had seen very good scenes at least of the girl.
      Few and short scenes can gain high ratings when they are very good.

      But maybe you’re right.
      We’ll see.
