The Homecoming: A Christmas Story (stage play and musical)

13 Jul


Searching for books of the movies on my one-room schoolhouse list, I searched again for The Waltons (Earl Hamner’s Spencer’s Mountain, I only have the abridged Reader’s Digest version). Then I found a script of the musical by Evelyn Svensson (The Dramatic Publishing Company) on Google Books showing a b&w photo on front. Performed by the Steeple Players, Hendersonville, TN (unpictured). There are some more pics also with a younger boy on

There’s the original 1998 stage play by Christopher Sergel performed in 2015 by the Theatre Guild of Rockingham County (TGRC), pictured on where the musical is based on. There’s a short slideshow on YouTube showing a blonde teen girl and a teen boy, both also sitting.

There are also other plays and musicals (pics on, and a 2005 play on which also has a pic of younger boys sitting on the floor). Probably much more plays, but I haven’t found better ones by a brief research.



Thomas & Senior

11 Jul


Family series, 7 or 11, 9 or 4 episodes + film
Year: 1985-(1988)
Year in film: 1980s
Country: The Netherlands
Who in bibs: Sandra ~14, Vera ~13, Hanneke ~6 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+ ??
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Karin van Ee in light blue bibs with a red belt. Pics 1-2 from episode 8/9.  Also in ep 5. I think few scenes but I don’t know the complete series. Main character is the boy. Maybe riding scenes but unknown if in bibs. Also young girl Elvira Molenaar in beige bibs (pic 3 from episode 1). And at least in the movie ~13 yo Nathalie van der Wal in beige bibs (unpictured). I haven’t found her, yet, one pic on a fansite.

I found this by coincidence. How could I miss this? Great, typical series by Karst van der Meulen (“De zevensprong” girls rating 4, “De bende van hiernaast” (f/m, rating 6), Knokken voor twee (boys, girl, rating 8), Mijn idee (girl, teen girl, rating 6).

Aka “Thomas & Senior en de grote goudroof” and Thomas en Senior. There’s also a 1985 movie called “Thomas en Senior op het spoor van Brute Berend” (also shown as series in 4 episodes) where Karin van Ee and others also starred. English movie title: Thomas & Senior: On the Trail of Brutal Bernard.

For the (few ?) bibs scenes rating 5 for now only. Needs to be rechecked (also for other actors, sitting scenes…). The movie might be (partly) the same, at least should has a different beginning (for what I understood). Both are available on VHS and DVD. 2 different DVD sets.


Update: Little Boy (2015)

7 Jul


And another movie completely checked. Jakob Salvati wore many different pairs, black cotton, light brown corduroy, light blue and dark blue jeans bibs and also coveralls. And some other boys in jeans bibs, one in light blue hickory striped.

Pic 1 showing him in light blue bibs with overlapping straps, also walking rear view. Red shirt. Scene at 57 minutes. Also same clothes at 33 but with a cap.

Pic 2 is at 1h31 in dark blue bibs and cap but with a jacket. Pic 3 in corduroy bibs and boots, also sitting on the bed (somewhere between 15 and 33).

Pic 4 below showing a boy in light blue bibs at 13 minutes. Another boy briefly in dark blue bibs, headshot only inside. Pic 5 showing an older teen boy in medium blue bibs. Soon after that a boy in light blue hickory striped bibs is shown, also close-up, partial. Main character in corduroy bibs lying on the grass, also close-up, rear/side view.

Medium blue coveralls (jeans, legs cuffed up) at 35 minutes.

So many scenes. Unfortunately is the main character very young and rather few and brief scenes of others.

Main entry, still rating 4 at

Comment: One blonde girl in light blue bibs, either main character, played by Tristine Skyler or maybe more likely Olivia Laurel Mates. Sorry for the bad pics. I only have checked this briefly. I think rather few good scenes but nice setting in the woods.

Update: Honig im Kopf

2 Jul


I have briefly checked the complete movie but hope for a broadcasting. 3 new pics of Emma Schweiger in shortalls including sitting scenes. Adding tags farm, sitting F. Still not sure if 2 different pairs. One appearing light blue (maybe just in the sun).

Nice setting and maybe even more scenes than assumed.

Also soon on my pigtails blog (other girl), rating ~4.

Main entry (2 more pics), still rating 4


Update: Come Morning

1 Jul


One better and larger pic of Thor Wahlestedt in Come Morning. The bibs the color and the height of the bib is a bit better to see outside in the sun.

Many scenes but unfortunately very often with a jacket over them.

Main entry, rating 5


Drei Väter sind besser als keiner (now on TV)

29 Jun


Now on Daserste. Woman. Belt and boots.

I already have this as well. Rating 7. 2 new pics here.

Main entry with one old pic



Gunsmoke (1955) s14e8

26 Jun


8 yo Mike Durkin obviously in beige bibs but with a jacket. Also without the hat. Rather few good scenes. Also in pajamas (on my Western blog, rating 5). Good bedroom scenes (soon on my other blog, rating ~6). Also starring Susan Olsen (Cindy in The Brady Bunch). Both also one year later in s15e6 but not in bibs. (On my Western blog, rating 3).

Handsome boy. But few good scenes. So rating 3-4 only.

I also uploaded one slightly better pic of Eric Shea in s14e14 showing a bit more of his bibs.


Main entry rating up to 9


Update: Our Idiot Brother

18 Jun


I have briefly checked this movie. Obviously only few scenes near the beginning. Quite interesting. Shirtless lady (Kathryn Hahn), rubber boots and legs cuffed up.

Main entry, still rating (4)-5


Tiere bis unters Dach – s2e5

17 Jun


The best firefighter scenes (I already had one pic) is this in today’s ep 18 “Kopf in den Sand”. Showing Paul, Cem and Jonas (pic 1 from left). Open jackets, so confirmed to be real bibs. Also rear view of Jonas but from a distance only. Also a firefighter man and a lady (Floriane) in coveralls including belt.

Rather few good scenes and in the last 10 minutes only. I didn’t remember Paul as firefighter. Jonas’ bibs appear a bit darker and the bib is at higher position.

Better quality on the mediathek, not missing top and bottom like on YouTube.

Main entry f/m including real bibs and shortalls (girls and women only except boys in coveralls).
