Update: Cross Creek

22 Feb


I now have seen the complete DVD. db1 was right. Previously rated 8, now I can’t give any higher rating than 5. The 2 hour movie has 3 boys, 1 girl, men and a woman, but rather few (good) bibs scenes. The main problem is not the amount of scenes, but there are very few scenes of complete views. Not even of the girl or men.

The 2 boys including Cary Guffey and another blonde, unknown boy in hickory striped bibs have mainly headshots, pic 2 at 28 minutes. Full view only for some few seconds at around 1h40 (pic in the main entry). Mary Steenburgen also some few seconds at the end (pic in main entry), and one other headshot (1h53), both with a jacket over them.

20 yo Ike Eisenmann (pic 4) has one long scene at 48 minutes. Working, partly wet, good front and even better rear views, but he’s quite old. One other scene at a barn but dark lit (at 39 min). Faded and worn bibs.

Most of interest is the girl, Dana Hill, around 18 yo but appearing much younger due to a disease. Several scenes near the beginning, but also very few full views. 1 close up and one rear view. Pics at 23 and 18 minutes. Soon on my pigtails blog, rating 6. All actors except I think Eisenmann also wearing other clothes.

The movie itself is also not very good. Great setting, colors and music, though. Strong accents.

The DVD is a widescreen RC1 with good image quality. 1 extra. A 17 minutes later interview of Steenburgen, but mainly showing scenes from the movie. Very few other pics and footage, none of interest. Some more pics at



Fathers & Daughters

18 Feb


Drama starring Russell Crowe
Year: 2015
Year in film: 1989 (bibs)
Country: USA, Italy
Who in bibs: Young Katie ~10
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least 10 or 11 yo Kylie Rogers as 5 yo Katie in blue bibs at 57 minutes, sitting and walking (pic 2) and maybe one more scene and also cycling but more likely in a blue short dress, skirtalls or similar (pics 1+3 at around 38 minutes).

Obviously very few flashback scenes set 25 years ago in 1989.

A very young girl, few scenes. So rating 2-3 only.


Grazie… nonna

14 Feb


Erotic comedy film. Edwige Fenech
Year: 1975
Year in film: 1974
Country: Italy
Who in bibs: Marinella ~16 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this teen girl, probably Graziella Mossini  in light blue bibs. Scene at the beginning. I think also sitting on a motorcycle (behind the boy, Valerio „Giusva“ Fioravanti).

Typical movie of it’s kind (but including granny (Fenech) and grandson plot). English titles: “Lover Boy” and “Thank-you… Granny”. Uncut 95 minutes.

I can’t say much more. I assume rather few bibs scenes. I don’t like the 70s.

Rating 3-4.


Die Schatzsuche (1985)

13 Feb


Swiss school project
Year: 1985
Year in film: 1985
Country: Suisse
Who in bibs: boy ~13 ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: At least this boy, around 13 or 14 yo in faded bibs, bib at low position and hands also in the pockets.

After finding “Der Ausgestossene (1984)” for my shiny shorts blog (rating 7), I checked briefly some more clips from this YouTube uploader (basis104) and so found this one.

This has even been aired 1986 on Suisse TV (Sälber gmacht).

Rating 5. I think few scenes.


Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry

10 Feb


TV drama starring Morgan Freeman
Year: 1978
Year in film: 1933
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys ~7-17, men
Available on DVD: VHS only
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Several black boys and teen boys in faded bibs, also men including white men some in dark denim bibs. I haven’t found teen girls in bibs like in the novels. I only have checked (many) parts of the movie as there’s no quick preview window. School scene pictured at around 29 minutes. One brief scene of a white boy (Mark Keith as Jeremy in black or dark bibs at 1h25, at the beginning with a pullover (maybe bibs underneath)).

How could I miss this? I even own one of the novels.

Awarded novel by Mildred D. Taylor. Interesting 1930s Mississippi setting.

I haven’t found perfect scenes, and very few and brief farm work scenes only.

The only DVD I found is a documentary or interview about the books. Originally as longer 3 part mini series.

Rating 4 for now but needs rechecking more carefully, especially the full version.


Tsatsiki, farsan och olivkriget

9 Feb


Family film, part 3
Year: 2015
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: Sweden
Who in bibs: Alva ~12
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium+ ?
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least Sara Vilén in short shortalls, bib at very low position. Even making a headstand (like Mary-Ellen Walton).

Also boys and girls in swimwear including a boy in pink board shorts. On my shiny shorts blog, I currently only have the 2nd movie “Tsastiki – Vänner för alltid” (boys rating 5).

I don’t know the complete movie yet. Typical movie of it’s kind. Not that bad.

Rating 4-5 for now only. I don’t like this girl and neither shortalls.

English title: Tsatsiki, Dad and the Olive War.

The Other Me (2000)

7 Feb


Disney film starring Andrew Lawrence
Year: 2000
Year in film: ~2000
Country: USA
Who in bibs: teen girl ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this black teen, probably a girl in dark blue, maybe raw denim bibs. Scene at 58 minutes. Maybe another girl on the right? Or more likely they are straps of a backpack.

As announced on Baby (2000), rating 7, also starring Alison Pill, I have rechecked this movie, as there should be nice pigtails of her, but this was wrong and in “The Life Before This”. At least I this scene that way.

Good movie, some good scenes of Andy Lawrence including shirtless scenes, but not in bibs. I have several other movies with him and his brother (blog search for Lawrence).

I assume very few and brief scenes here only.

So rating 3-4 only. Movie rating maybe 5-6. But there are better ones (with younger Andy).

Die Spur der roten Fässer

6 Feb


Family crime, Kids detective film
Year: 1996
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Steffi ~32 ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: no, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least one young lady, shirtless in faded bibs, shortalls or similar. Farm setting. I’m not sure about her name. Maybe it’s 32 yo Teresa Harder? But she seems to have longer hair. Probably also not 35 yo Kristiane Kupfer. Maybe a supporting actress?

Sorry, I currently can’t find any better pics. Rare movie. Not on DVD.

English title: The Trace of the Red Barrels. Directed by Kai Wessel. Music by Konstantin Wecker. Also starring Peter Sodann and Klaus J. Behrendt.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, longhaired, blonde boy (rating 6).

I assume few good scenes. Rating 2-3 only.

Cross Creek (purchased)

4 Feb


Biography/drama. Nominated for 4 Oscars
Year: 1983
Year in film: 1928, 1930s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Paul ~10, Floyd 20, Ellie 18, Marjorie 29
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Bib occurence: medium
Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Dana Hill as tomboy Ellie, looking much younger (pic 2, also in other posts like “The Kids Who Knew Too Much”, rating 7), 10 or 11 yo Cary Guffey as Paul (Bud Spencer movies, rating up to 6), Ike Eisenmann as Floyd (farm work, partly wet, also in LHOTP and “The Amazing Cosmic Awareness of Duffy Moon”, both rating 7), Mary Steenburgen as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, author of “The Yearling” (1994 movie rating 7), some men and maybe others in bibs.

This movie obviously has it all. Boys, girls, woman and men in bibs. I found it by searching all 80s US movies on IMDb for my shiny shorts blog.

2 hours. Dana Hill (“European Vacation”) died in 1996 aged 32.

Update: Even one more boy in hickory striped bibs, but very few good scenes. Previously rated 8, now 5. More details and pics at



Unknown 10: Swedish child interview

4 Feb


Unknown German children’s magazine
Year: 1990, 1991 or 1992
Year in film: ~1990s
Country: Germany / SUE
Who in bibs: girl ~11 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this blonde, probably Swedish girl sitting on the floor in faded blue bibs and a yellow belt. Maybe more kids at school? Early 90s or 1988/1989.

Another fragment, I found on one of my tapes. It’s about friendship.

A similar series like Stark! – Kinder erzählen ihre Geschichte (boy, rating 4). I think I can update entries without pics of non-celebrities and just put a bar over their eyes.

Maybe a Dutch EBU UER production as it has the original sound and the dubbing over it.

In today’s episode of the children quiz show “1, 2 oder 3” there’s a young girl around 8 yo sitting in dark blue bibs in the front row (bib at high position). I don’t have a recording of that.
