A Lion Is in the Streets

20 Oct


Drama starring James Cagney
Year: 1953
Year in film: 1930s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boy ~9, men
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low
Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least one boy at school in faded bibs and a light blue shirt (at 3 minutes) and also some (older) men in bibs. Set in the 1930s. I only have checked it briefly.

One of the few movies tagged one-room schoolhouse on IMDb.

Some handsome boys like Lee Aaker (but not in bibs).

For this very brief scenes, I can only give rating 3-4.


Books 68: several – Story 143: Walking in stiff new overalls

19 Oct


Because of my recent book purchase and previously finds, mainly about one-room schoolhouses (tagged book), I searched for more books and movies. So here my book results. Unfortunately, some of them are available only as snippet-view on Google.

I don’t remember any movie or series which is about the smell of new denim overalls, bullying or even the noise while walking. Most movies, set in the Great Depression show faded bibs. Even lengthy series like LHOTP and The Waltons have very few raw denim overalls. The pic is from a Mennonite documentary (entry coming soon). I also found some few more movies.

-Aronson: Mud and Dust (careful at school, 2 weeks before washing, removing rich style)

-Davis: Follow the Leader (strong odor, also girl)

-Nelson: Cassidy (not school but in empty store, smell, putting on, walking)

-Millard: Where Did All the Cowboys Go? (not school but at home, also girl)

-De Caux: Labor Radical (scraping tender skin)

-Chappel: Brighten the Corner Where You Are (stiff bibs cut into crotch)

Another one, I can’t find right now was about a boy who like the smell or stench of the bag where the new overalls of his granddad were.

Would also be a great plot for an audio book including noises of scrapping pant legs (and describing)

Book 67: John Steinbeck: The Grapes of Wrath

19 Oct


I don’t own this book (yet) but there are many (19) mentionings of overalls (+ additional mentionings of pants). At least men, boys and young boys (barefooted, probably shirtless and dusty with grey hair) but I think mainly men. Also other scenes like washing overalls and on a clothes line.

The pics are from the movie showing a young boy and an older girl in bibs.

The movie is quite interesting (although the boy is very young), but I think, I won’t buy the novel for now.

Movie entry, rating 6 at



Pumuckls Abenteuer

17 Oct


Family series, remake, 13 ep
Year: 1999
Year in film: 1990s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: boy ~15 ??
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no, partly TV recordings
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: One longhaired teen boy in light blue bibs on a beach in Israel in ep. 9. Either Uri Alter or more likely Jehuda Levi as boy#1 (obviously a local boy).

Another suggestion. Thanks very much!

The series is very poor compared to the original 1978-1991 series “Meister Eder und sein Pumuckl”  (also check out my shiny shorts blog for that, rating 8).

Rating 4-5 for this. I prefer the shorthaired boy.


Kinderen voor Kinderen 4

16 Oct


Some boys and (teen) girls in red and blue bibs with matching shirts and shoes. Probably that’s the reason why I missed this. Song “Dicke vrienden” of this 1984 episode. Sorry, this is episode 5.

Not that bad but I think few good sceens and few boys (if any).

Rating 5 for this.

I also have and make new posts on my shiny shorts blog of this and Cebollitas.

Main entry here, rating 8

Dark Awakening (2014)

13 Oct


Horror film
Year: 2014
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Danny ~6 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: William Pifer in faded blue bibs. Also sitting on the floor. Pic at 28 minutes. Another scene at 25 minutes also rear view while running upstairs and walking. Obviously these 2 brief scenes only. He mainly wore other clothes.

Another suggestion. Thanks!

But the boy is very young and I don’t like his haircut and I think rather few or very few scenes. Outside with a jacket, so not sure if bibs as well but likely.

So rating 3 for now only. The movie is very interesting, though. Nice ghost girls. But probably few good scenes either. Nice house and bedroom scenes.

Tom Sawyer 2010 stage play Island Scene

11 Oct


Unknown School Stage play/musical
Year: 2010
Year in film: 2010
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys ~11-14 ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: always
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn and Joe Harper all barefooted, 2 of them in bibs including sitting. One in light blue, one in dark blue, the latter ones quite baggy. Not sure who is who, probably Tom in the middle and maybe Huck on the left? Not sure about the state and name of school. On YouTube called “Tom Sawyer: Island Scene-2010 “Lazin’ Down The River” by froboythestud. 11 minutes.

Quite interesting but there are better movies and stage plays.

Rating 3-4.

Update: A Rural Community: Holtville, Alabama

10 Oct


By checking my DVDr for something for my other blog, I came across this movie and uploaded some more and larger pics. Some more on my PD album on Google Photos.

Pic 1 is probably the best scene, a shirtless boy walking. Pic 3 showing my often used pic from a distance. Pic 4 showing 4 boys, 2 younger of them in raw denim bibs.

Main entry, rating 8



De zesde klas

9 Oct


Reality drama TV series, 7 ep
Year: 1980-1981
Year in film: 1980
Country: The Netherlands
Who in bibs: girls, boy ~12
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+ ??
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this girl (6th grader, 12 yo) in dark red, maybe corduroy bibs. Pic from ep 1. Obviously also another girl and also a boy in blue bibs according to a tiny pic on waarkeekjijvroegernaar.

And another Dutch family series. Unfortunately also not on DVD. Awarded series was rebroadcasted online on Z@ppelin in 2002 but nothing more left than an intro.

For the girl rating ~3-4. But probably even better are the blue bibs of the girl and boy. Not all are handsome. Filmed in 1980 (?) but looking and described as late 70s. Maybe filmed earlier?

So rating 4-5.
