Update 2: The Fool Killer

25 Jan


I now have checked the complete movie and made some better and larger pics.

Very interesting movie. Although I don’t like tight bibs. Edward Albert is often or always barefooted. The bibs are also partly wet.

Main entry, rating 7


Thanks db1 for providing another pic of Joey Lawrence in Young People’s Specials: Umbrella Jack. It’s obviously not a screenshot and I don’t think that this b&w pic is better. I don’t use copyrighted pics other than screenshots.

Update: Danny Boy (1946)

16 Aug


I found a full stream and checked most parts of the movie but it was very disappointing.

The movie itself isn’t that bad. Handsome actors and even (partial) undressing and underwear scenes (at 18 minutes).

But concerning bibs scenes, it’s pretty bad. Only few and brief scenes of a young black boy in bibs at the beginning (rear view and front but from a distance).

And the older teen boy/young man from the main entry is obviously an old man. And the Baseball scenes don’t have any bibs scenes at all (sleeveless shirt or shadow). Farm location but no bibs there.

Previously rated 5, now ~2.

Comment: At least one lady, I think Emily Mortimer in white or maybe beige bibs, also sitting but I think often with a jacket over. B&w movie.

They recently show a theatralic trailer on TV. But I don’t know this new movie, yet.

Starring Bruno Ganz, Cherry Jones and Patricia Clarkson.

Rating 3-4 for now.

Rating: *******
Comment: At least Robert aka Bobby Crawford in at least s5e13 in faded, tight bibs. Pic is from The Rifleman s1e23 (1959) showing him on right next to his brother Johnny.

I recently found this during research for my Western blog (other boys, rating 4-(6) for now). I thought, I already had this there.

This episode is currently not available online and season 5 is not on DVD. There are several pics showing him in bibs like on his official site. So pic needs to be updated later.

There are also some other boys and teen boys in this series, but I currently don’t know of any others in bibs.

Rating 7 for now.

I want to announce again, that I also found my recording of the recent unknown movie/series on my sailor suit blog. Maybe it’s Five Mile Creek.  New pics on my other blog. Can anybody confirm this?

Update: Curly Top (1935)

23 Jun


I recently found a colorized pic of Shirley Temple with a different title and thought of a new movie, but it was from “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1938)“, which I already had.

But I found a clip from Curly Top (1935) which I also had, but showing next to 7 yo Shirley Temple some more girls in bibs.

Simple bibs. Backside simple suspenders only.

Main entry, still rating 4 at
