Update: The Night of the Hunter

17 Jan

nightofthehunter-nnightofthehunter-n2

As announced, Billy Chapin died in December 2016. I recently found a TV recording on DVDr, but I still hadn’t the time to watch the complete movie at slow speed. But I have checked many parts and have chosen these new pics.

Several good scenes, with and without a straw hat. Also sitting on the grass, good rear view and a woman touching his neck and strap.

Main entry rating 7-

R.I.P.

I also have the 1991 remake in color with an older teen boy.

Comment: At least 2 boys at school, one in dark and one in light blue or beige bibs. Also  Virginia Weidler at the end fishing in raw denim bibs. 1930s and farm setting.

Luckily just now on YouTube but I only have checked the movie at high speed. Obviously rather few good scenes. Rating 4-5 for now.

Also on my pigtails blog, rating 5.

Update: Our Gang

20 Oct

ourgang-n2ourgang-n5

Searching for boys sporting pigtails, I found the boy Farina (pic 4, also on my pigtails blog with different, real pigtails) and also some more boys in bibs.

Pic 1 is from the movie “The Pooch” (1932) which I already had (new pic). Pic 2 is from “A Lad An’ A Lamp” (1932) probably the same boy but nice rear view and not colorized.

Pic 3 showing some boys sitting in “The Pigskin Palooka” (1937). Also other nice historic clothes like American Football pants.

Pic 4 is from “When The Wind Blows (1930)“.

I haven’t seen all movies yet. But this series has entries on all my 5 blogs.

I like classics and these are very funny, but most kids are very young. Rating 4-5 for this ones.

Main overview entry (rating 4 with entries rating up to 6 including raw denim bibs)

Way Back Home (1931)

waybackhome

Drama starring Bette Davis
Year: 1931
Year in film: 1930s ?
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boy ~10 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: At least one uncredited, dark haired boy, I think barefooted in dark faded bibs. Not simple straps on the back. Brief scene at 14 minutes. But I don’t know the complete movie yet.

Starring child actor Frankie Darro (I think on the right) in short pants with suspenders.

Typical drama movie of it’s time by RKO. Reminds me of “My Dog Shep” (but that is better).

I like classics. Handsome boys.

Rating 5 for now only assume few scenes.

A Canterbury Tale (1944)

11 Jun

canterburytale1944bcanterburytale1944

Drama starring Eric Portman
Year: 1944
Year in film: 1940s
Country: UK
Who in bibs: women ~20s
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Two young Britain women (Land Girls) doing farm work. I think both in boots and at least one with a belt (maybe Sheila Sim, around 20 yo). Scenes starting at 41 minutes. Later they are sitting next each other but I think headshots only. Also several young boys shown but not in bibs.

What else to say? Quite interesting and at least real farm work. One has her bib at high position, the other at quite low position.

For these days quite good.  But rather few scenes.

Rating 3-4 only.

Short film
Year: 1969
Year in film: 1960s
Country: Poland
Who in bibs: boy ~5
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium ?
Rating:  2/10
Rating: **
Comment: One little blonde boy in dark (maybe dark blue or black) bibs (full length) with horizontal, even darker stripes. Playing on the floor. He also wears a jacket outside. So probably rather few scenes of the complete bibs.

25 minutes. English title The Magic Shop (based on H. G. Wells’ 1903 story) but set in the presence (1960s).

I have checked it some time ago and don’t remember much.

He’s very young but quite handsome.

Rating 2-3 for now.

Comedy film. Luigi Comencini
Year: 1954
Year in film: 1950s ?
Country: Italy
Who in bibs: Ottavia ~5 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ??
Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: At least this little boy, probably Nino Imparaton in maybe beige or light blue shortalls. Scene at 28 minutes. He also entered the room with the shortalls down and pulling them up.

I have announced this on “La Storia (1986)“, another great movie directed by Luigi Comencini (I’m still looking for my unknown movie). Another young boy in shortalls there (rating 2).

I don’t know the complete movie. But he’s too young anyway. English title: “Bread, Love and Jealousy”, starring Gina Lollobrigida.

So rating 2 for now only.

Das Jahrhunderthaus

jahrhunderthaus

Documentary in 2 parts starring Michael Kessler
Year: 2016
Year in film: 2016, 1950s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: woman, man, boy
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: 19 or 20 yo Lilian Prent (middle), 34 yo Ruth Blauert and Michael Kessler in blue working bibs. Pic from ep 2 at 8 minutes. Also near the end at least one young boy, around 6 or 7 yo in bibs (b&w footage, perhaps set in the 1950s). Maybe some few more kids but brief scenes only.

Plot is interesting, living in Germany in the 1920s, 1950s and 1970s. But somwhow I don’t like it. Most of the time a typical documentary with interviews of celebrities and footage scenes (mainly b&w, some colorizes, 70s mainly in color). Similar like the “Meine Kindheit…” series (see my sailor suit blog). Few good scenes.

Rating 2-3 only.

Comment: At least this kid in dark bibs and boots. Very brief scene at around 20 minutes. Also boys in short and tight Lederhosen (Lederhosen blog rating 5). Some boys swimming. Old women in at least aprons.

Has been aired yesterday but I missed most of it. Same or similar scenes were also shown in the “Meine Kindheit…” series.

Another episode is called “Dorfkinder erzählen: Erinnerungen ans Landleben”. May 26th. But not sure about overalls or Lederhosen there.

Country: USA
Who in bibs: Susie ~8 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: There are about 5 younger girls. I think it’s 7 or 8 yo Susie Kettle (this time played by Sherry Jackson) 4 other actresses playing that character in other movies in this series. Backside simple suspenders. Maybe barefooted.

Richard Eyer also in bibs in The Kettles in the Ozarks (rating 4). Both Sherry Jackson and Richard Eyer also wore bibs in Come Next Spring (color movie) rating 6. Sherry also appeared in many western series (probably not in bibs).

Farm setting and funny movies. But I have to check more.

Also one movie on my bedroom blog.

Rating 3-4 for now.
