Wind at My Back – update 2

20 Nov


I’m currently rewatching seasons 3+1 starting with disc 4 of season 3 as I assumed school scenes and raw denim bibs in there. Unlike the last updates more than 1 year ago, I’m watching the complete DVDs at regular speed. Previously, I only checked scenes, I noted at the 1st watching.

Rather few good scenes and the younger boy Fat often wore a closed jacket but even just the legs are nice. I wonder, why he wore bibs at all in winter and no farm setting. Probably it should look more like The Waltons. Fat maybe should match Jim-Bob as the youngest boy and Hub maybe Jason or Ben. Tomboy Maisey might should match Mary-Ellen, although not the sister here.

Pic 1 showing the great mirror scene with Fat (ep 36 at 24 minutes on disc 4) showing both front and rear. Sorry, I thought, I already had this. Mirror scenes are always great.

Pic 2 showing Maisey in ep 27 at 7 min (disc 1). Also rear view and also sitting, but hands on her lap. I think she’s rarely shown without a jacket.

Pic 3 showing Hub in raw denim bibs (ep 38 at 5 minutes). Also headshot. He rarely wore raw denim bibs.

Pic 4 showing full view of Fat in ep 39 at 27 minutes. Also side/rear view. Best scene is the cycling scene in ep 39, I already had.

Some plots are interesting and funny, others without the kids often boring. Main entry rating up to 8





The Boy King

16 Nov


Short film. Bio Martin Luther King
Year: 1986
Year in film: 1930s, 40s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys ~7-16 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium- ?
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: At least one white boy and black boy and teen boy in blue bibs. I think also men. Set in Atlanta in 1936, 1943 and later including historical footage scenes.

By searching for the DVD availability of Robbers, Rooftops and Witches (with some new facts), I found this by coincidence on the production company’s website.

Available in 31 and 47 minutes versions. I found a stream of the short one but checked only some parts.

I think rather few good scenes, often from the distance and the teen boy wearing a jacket.

Rating 4-5 for now.

The Secret of the Pond

3 Nov


Disney-Land s22e4+5. Ike Eisenmann
Year: 1975
Year in film: 1930s ?
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys ~12, 14 ?, man
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium+ ??
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: At least 12 or 13 yo Ike Eisenmann (pic 1 on the left) and Rex Corley (“Where the Red Fern Grows” 1974) as older brother) in beige/brownish appearing bibs. Also a man in dark bibs. Starring Eric Shea as main character, city boy Joey on vacation, the other boy pictured. Interesting jacket. No credits on IMDb.

Set in the swamps of Virginia. Not sure about the time setting. Could be 1930s, the blue jeans however more look like the 1970s. There’s also a wounded dog and a black man (Moses Gunn) appearing (living in the swamp ?). Directed by Robert Day.

I don’t know the complete movie, I think it’s not on DVD. 2 brief clips uploaded on YouTube by Iake Eissinmann, claiming to be the actor.

Rating at least 4-5 for now.

Das erste Mal … USA!

1 Nov


Teen travel documentary series, 6 ep
Year: 2016
Year in film: 2016
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Louisa 17, Philipp 18, women
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: 17 yo Louisa Masciullo in grey waterproof bibs /bib at high position) and red rubber boots, 18 yo Philipp Schmitze-Elsen in black ones and some young women or older teen girls (including one Asian, bib at low position) in blue and orange (non-jeans) bibs at a seal sanctuary in San Francisco. Final episode 6 (also covering LA). The last 2 episodes are also available as separate, long versions. There were also other waterproof pants (without bib) hanging outside on a clothes rail including red, light blue and yellow pants, but they chose these bibs.

Quite interesting series (I missed the first 3 episodes). Also riding scenes (also of boys in rural Iowa, in a different episode, but none in bibs, same for Texas). I don’t like tall, hectic 18 yo Philipp with his high pitched voice. They both also appeared in “Let’s Talk” and Die Jungs-WG (season 3, 2013, bedroom blog and shiny shorts blog)/ Mädchen-WG (season 2, 2012).

Grey bibs are great but rather few scenes. Black fishing bibs are also very rare.

So rating 4-5.

1 Nov


Drama / musical
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1930s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys ~ 8-14 ,men ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium+
Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Mainly shown 2 boys, around 8 and 10 yo also sitting (at a school play or similar and a bit later at home next each other). The younger, light blonde boy also in a sleeveless white shirt.The boy in pics 1+4 is probably younger than thought.

At 56 minutes also some more boys. At least one teen boy. I think one young, black boy in medium blue bibs, one young white boy in maybe hickory striped. Also men in bibs. Nice farm setting.

I found this by coincidence and only have checked it briefly.

Pics 1,2 and 4 at 3 minutes.

Also some girls in nice sailor dresses (soon on my other blog, rating ~5).

Rating at least 6-7 for now. Most boys are quite young. I assume rather few very good scenes.


Update: Split Infinity

30 Oct


I already had updated that post with infos and 2 new pics, but now I have checked the complete movie for a second time, now at regular speed to make sure to not miss anything. (I already had the best scenes and didn’t miss much).

As said, many (good) scenes and I almost considered buying the DVD, but still rating “just” 7. Few good scenes of younger boys. Often from a distance or very brief.

Pic 1 showing a handsome blond boy at 1h09. Also previously a similar boy but with a cap. Pic 2 is the Baseball scene at 43 minutes. Also good rear view but most younger boys often in the distance. Batter is older Jason. I think who is also being spanked at school at 25 min. One young boy sitting on the ground.

Pic 3 showing main character, 14 yo girl AJ in shortalls with one strap down at 55 min. Also several girls, young and old in sailor or sailor-style dresses (1929). Pic 4 showing a barn scene with 3 boys at 57 min. Also more scenes with boys at ropes also at the carnival but mainly shown the teen girl hanging and sliding down at a rope.

Unpictured, the creek scene at 45 min. Mainly Jason in front (also wet). One shirtless teen boy sitting barefoot in bibs but from a distance.

Main entry with more pics

Who in bibs: girl A.J. 14, boys ~7-17

Rating:  7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: At least boys, men and a 14 yo girl (Melora Slover) in blue bibs and shortalls also with her bib and one strap down. Interesting time travel plot. Set in 1929. It’s not a woman as another site clearly stated.

During rechecking of Fried Green Tomatoes (on my one-room schoolhouse list, update coming soon), I found by coincidence a pic of the cover of this one. A school also here but a larger one.

Also a teen boy Jason playing Baseball in bibs at 40 minutes and some more in bibs but from a distance.

Rating at least 7-8 for now. (Most younger boys in the background only). Mostly shown the teen girl and older teen boys.

Subtitle: A Gift From the Past.

Update: Completely checked but at high speed, so might miss some scenes. Much more bibs scenes than assumed. 1st scene at 25 minutes. One older teen boy at school is being spanked in bibs. Many boys at a barn party/carnival at ~1h06 including younger boys but most from a distance.Wet scenes at a creek at 45 minutes, The teen girl is also milking, but surprisingly not in bibs. Also a very brief cycling scene of the girl. Update and more pics coming soon.

Removing tag women, adding tag bicycle, sitting M, shortalls.

Pic 1 at 38 min (3 boys at school instead of 1, also legs of kids upstairs), pic 2 at 1h06, pic 3 at 1h02, pic 4, my favourite scene at 1h00.



The Mennonites – Living in a Perfect World

26 Oct


National Geographic documentary
Year: 2006
Year in film: 2005
Country: USA, Mexico, I
Who in bibs: boys~ 6-17 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium+
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Several boys and young men of Russian Mennonites in Mexico and Bolivia in medium blue, dark blue and black bibs. Nice, but modern school scene. Boys on the left, girls on the right (girls of course not in bibs).

Rating 6-7. Most boys are either very young or older teen boys.

No entry on IMDb. AKA “Living in a Perfect World”. Awarded documentary. Looks very close to an earlier entry, probably same location/school in Bolivia, but I think different boys and year




List 56: One-room schoolhouse and overalls in movies

25 Oct

waltons-s4e9cStory 21: LHOTP - The Love of Johnny Johnson

This is a list of one-room schoolhouses in movies and series and involving overalls. Work in progress. Note, that more movies might contain one-room schoolhouses and overalls, but not the kids at school wore them. List is sorted by A-Z.

I’m especially interested in raw denim overalls (including b&w). Girls rarely wore bibs then (in red). The list not includes non-jeans fabric nor movies outside the US/Canada. Some movies still needs to be checked including the rare movies/ movies I’haven’t seen (completely). Lengthy series like LHOTP and The Waltons needs to be rechecked more carefully, especially for raw denim. Also 1950s movies, Westerns and Classics like Our Gang.

List 1: Schools 1850-1940s

  • 12 Dogs of Christmas, The (also girl)
  • The Basket
  • Big City (2007)
  • B-TV’s Tom Sawyer (2003 titled 2012)
  • Christmas Snows, Christmas Winds
  • Christmas Story, A – 1983
  • Christy (1994) series
  • Christy (1994 movie)
  • Christy, Choices of the Heart, Part II
  • Christy: The Movie
  • Cowboys, The – 1972
  • Father Murphy (school in saloon)
  • Fried Green Tomatoes
  • Girl of the Ozarks (b&w) also girl but not at school
  • Great Brain, The (raw denim)
  • Kayla (teen girl) Canada, pic 3 below
  • Lancer (needs to be checked if bibs at school)
  • Lion Is in the Streets, A (very brief scene)
  • Little House on the Prairie (also girl) pic 2
  • Pete’s Dragon (1977)
  • Road to Avonlea
  • Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
  • Scandal at Scourie
  • Secret Path, The
  • Sounder (1972)
  • Waltons, The (girls, teen girls, check if Elizabeth at school raw denim)
  • Waltons s3e15 (teen boy raw denim outside school)
  • Waltons s4e1 (boy raw denim *) + another boy in pic 1
  • When Calls the Heart (2014)
  • Who Has Seen the Wind (3 boys raw denim, not one-room ? but 30s)
  • Why Shoot the Teacher?
  • Wind at My Back s1+s2, (check if teen girl also at school)
  • Wish You Well girl in raw denim , boys (also at school)
  • Wrong Side Up (2014)

The Waltons and Wind at My Back the schools are larger buildings. The Waltons has some few raw denim scenes, like older Ben and older Elizabeth but very few at school. On s4e1 only outside the school, on s4e9 a very young boy ~6 yo inside but from a distance.
