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.

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

I own: no
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating:  3/10 *
Rating: ***
Comment: At least 19 yo Jennifer Lawrence as 17 yo Ree I think in grey camouflage bibs but under a jacket at around 6 minutes. Now on German’s channel One. Also a man in dark green coveralls.

Maybe I was wrong and they’re just regular camouflage pants and a T-shirt with a similar pattern. I found a pic of regular pants. But interesting movie. And very handsome boy (but not in bibs).

Tom Sawyer Project Bay Trail 2016

4 Oct


School project
Year: 2016
Year in film: 1850s
Country: USA ?
Who in bibs: Tom ~12, Huck ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium ?
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: At least 2 boys including Tom Sawyer (with the straw hat ?) in bibs and shortalls. Nice scenes like sitting, a barn scene and even an undressing scene in different clips. One other boy, probably Huck in bibs with one strap down walking in the barn (also rear views of both)..

Probably the best Tom Sawyer school project next to B-TV’s. I only had a 2013 version (rating 5) but this one is even better.

There are also some more projects each year of them which needs to be checked as well (including upcoming ones).

Rating 6-7 for this one.



B-TV’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer 2003 + 2012

3 Oct


School project (Bloomington, IN), film #2
Year: 2012
Year in film: ~1850s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: (teen) boys
Available on DVD: online
I own: no
Bib occurence: often
Rating:  8/10
Rating: ********
Comment: By rechecking and replacing my tiny pics, I found that there are now 2 different movies. All pics except 1 from my existing post, titled B-TV’s Tom Sawyer (2012), rating 7, are in fact from the 2003 version made by the students.

All pics here are from the real 2012 version made by “Torbenson Productions” (maybe the teacher) and this one is even better. I never liked the tight, faded shortalls of the 2003 Tom Sawyer.

Nice raw denim, barefoot and shirtless scenes (shirtless at least 2 boys) and the raw denim bibs are also wet, looking like black. I think Tom Sawyer (pic 2 in the middle?) not wearing bibs here? The school scene is similar (same location) but the boy with the dunce cap (pic 3) has one strap down.

Note, the very long bibs in pic 2 and the boy in bibs lying on the ground in pic 4. The boy in pic 5 is also shown close-up. Pic 6 is a behind-the scenes and not full screen.

Rating 7-8 for this one. Also rather few boys in bibs, around 3. Shorter lake scene. Other Tom Sawyer posts coming soon.
