Update: Summer of the Monkeys

9 Dec


I have rechecked this movie, and next to handsome Corey Sevier there are some few more boys in front of the school in dark blue bibs (but mainly or only from a distance) and also men in bibs.

Corey’s bibs are patched and hickory striped. As usual, this can only be seen in streams with a better image quality and/or close-up scenes. Pic 2 is from the trailer.

Some nice scenes, climbing out of the window and fighting, landing on the ground. Also riding.

Western-like setting although set in 1910. Also in regular jeans and pants with suspenders, soon on my Western blog, rating 6.

I don’t like faded nor hickory stripes. Main entry (including the novel) still rating 6




Play in the Snow

8 Dec


Educational short film Encyclopædia Britannica
Year: 1945
Year in film: 1940s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: girl ~9 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Clothing occurrence: low
Rating:  2/10
Rating: **
Comment: One girl in dark bibs, bib at low position. Dressing and/or undressing scenes.

Another EB Film I found on 11 minutes. This time with a girl.

IMDb has this as s1e1 of “The Childhood Years (1950)” including one pic of this clip but this is wrong for several reasons. First it’s from 1945. And not in color. Also a wrong title screen.

Few good scenes. So rating 2 only.


Gardening (1940)

4 Dec


Encyclopedia Britannica Films / ERPI Classroom Films
Year: 1940
Year in film: ~1940
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boy ~10 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: One boy in dark blue jeans bibs. Very few and brief scenes. He also wore a jacket kneeing on the grass.

I searched for some more educational movies from Encyclopaedia Britannica but  only found this one showing bibs. Some few more EB films soon on my other blogs. I haven’t checked for ERPI films and just found an even better one (coming soon).

No entry on IMDb. Available on (PD).

Rating 3 only.



Rosamunde Pilcher: Das Geheimnis der Blumeninsel (on TV)

3 Dec


Romance starring Eva-Maria Grein von Friedl
Year: 2018
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Amy ~37 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurrence: low+ ??
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this young lady, probably Eva-Maria Grein von Friedl in faded blue jeans bibs. On Sunday Dec 9th on ZDF. Pic from the official trailer (Filme->Herzkino). She obviously work at a flower shop.

I can’t say much more yet and only saw the trailer by coincidence and some few pis (also nice side view). No rear views yet. Not sure about sitting scenes or maybe more actresses. No entry on IMDb.

Rating probably around 4-5? Another movie


Mr. Mom (1983)

3 Dec


Comedy film, Michael Keaton
Year: 1983
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Jack 32, Kenny 6, Megan ~3 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurrence: low
Rating:  2/10
Rating: **
Comment: Michael Keaton in blue bibs, one side button open, ~6 yo Taliesin Jaffe in medium blue bibs at least in a shopping cart and the toddler sister played by Brittany and Courtney White at least in light blue bibs.

Also other scenes of interest like a bathtub scene. Nice bedroom (other blog, rating 7).

I don’t remember the complete movie. Nice, but typical 80s movie.

But the kids are very young and rather few good scenes.

So rating 2-3 only. Needs to be rechecked for other, supporting actors.

ABC Afterschool Specials: It’s No Crush, I’m in Love

1 Dec


ABC Afterschool Special. 25 seasons,  s12e1
Year: 1983
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Chrissie ~ 10
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurrence: low- ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least this young sister, Danga Lee as Chrissie in dark blue bibs.

There’s only a rather short clip on YouTube, the last 10 minutes, filmed off a TV screen.

Starring 16 yo Cynthia Nixon but probably not in bibs here.

Typical episode. For the bibs scene, rating ~4-5 for now. Nice rear view. But I assume rather few scenes. 1982 novel by June Foley, not mentioned by IMDb. It’s also not Amy but Annie. Another mistake.

Main overview



Dennis the Menace (1993)

30 Nov


Family film
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Dennis ~6
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: often ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: I already mentioned Mason Gamble in the Dennis the Menace main overview and have one pic (shirtless in long blue bibs), but by coincidence I also found him in  these olive shortalls (probably much fewer scenes in those).

I still have to recheck the complete movie.

I prefer the classic series with Jay North, although b&w and no jeans fabric. Now also on my bedroom blog. Mason Gamble is funny but also annoying and too young, around 6 yo.

So still rating ~3-4.



I Think I’m Having a Baby (CBS Afternoon Playhouse)

29 Nov


TV drama, s3e2
Year: 1981
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Laurie ~18 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this teen girl, probably Jennifer Jason Leigh ~18 yo as 15 yo Laurie in dark brown, maybe corduroy bibs. I only noticed this very brief scene.

What else to say?

Usually I like the Afternoon movies.

But for this brief scene rating 3 only.



Update: Los olvidados

28 Nov


And another movie completely rechecked. Several boys in raw denim bibs but rather few scenes of them and mainly from a distance. One older teen boy shirtless in more faded bibs and some younger boys are more often shown.

Not bad, so still rating 5. Adding tag Sitting M and farm. Main entry



Update: Summer of My German Soldier

26 Nov


I already have announced this and added 3 new pics (much better), so even some more. I also have given rating 7-(8) instead of 4 (for the boy, I think it’s Roy Morris). Kristy McNichol wore at least 3 different bibs and is much more often shown.
