Year: 1977-1984
Year in film: 1978
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Conrad ~5, others ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: At least a young boy, Christian Zika in hickory striped and light blue bibs and Kristi Jill Wood as Laurie in a dark blue jeans dress in s1e14. Also starring Adam Rich as older brother. Probably more actors/actresses in other episodes? There are several famous guest stars.

For now, I have only checked some few episodes for my shiny shorts blog (2 entries, rating 5).

Quite interesting 80s and late 70s series. But I rarely watched it then.

For this very young rating 2-3 for now only.

Other movies with Adam Rich in bibs include Eight is Enough (1977), rating 7 and The Devil and Max Devlin (rating 5).

Comment: At least Peyton Elizabeth Lee as main character in short shortalls) pic 2 from s1e13) and obviously also longer, dark striped bibs, pic 1 from the intro. Also sitting in shortalls on her bed.

Thanks again Michi for this suggestion!

New Disney Channel series, still running. But I don’t like her. She looks more like a boy. Maybe there are also other girls or boys? Needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Update 4: The Waltons – Season 7

10 Mar

waltons-s7cd2bwaltons-s7cd2

After disc 3, now the forgotten disc 2. Mainly of interest, next to the usual Jim-Bob and Elizabeth, 2 other, very young girls.

Pic 1 showing Jim-Bob and Elizabeth at around 1h47 close to each other. Before that also outside. Jim-Bob in hickory striped bibs. Both are almost equal tall.

Pic 2 a very young girl sitting on a swing (also standing) at 21 minutes.

Pic 3 showing Elizabeth climbing up the ladder to their tree house at 1h14h. Nice rear view. Also sitting up there. Another scene of her (standing) at 25 minutes.

Pic 4 showing a very young, blonde ballet girl in light blue bibs at 2h45.

Other scenes (of Jim-Bob) described in the entry of season 7 and his list.

Comment: Pierre Kreitmann in dark hickory striped blue bibs in some few scenes in the middle and end of this movie. Pic 1 at 27, pic 2 at 1h29.

Another suggestion. Thanks very much!

Not bad, but few scenes and often with a jacket over them.

So rating 4-5 only. Episode “L’homme de la maison” is much better (rating 7).

I have 3 other episodes here. There are still problems with the apostrophes at the blog search, as the simple, straight typewriter apostrophes won’t work in the post text but title. One post has a different apostrophe, but so someone can at least find something no matter if he types it or copy it. Same problem for other titles, especially “L’instit”. Search for “instit” and/or check the A-Z list, search for actor or director names etc.

All episodes I have, are also collected in

Update: Cross Creek

22 Feb

crosscreek3crosscreek6

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

Update 3: The Waltons – Season 7

19 Feb

waltons-s7u3cwaltons-s7u3a

Disc 3 of Season 7 of The Waltons. Pic 1 showing Jim-Bob hunker down in hickory striped bibs at 1h09 (ep 10). A similar scene but not that close-up at 1h00. Note, that the double episodes in Germany counting as 2 episodes, so must be ep 9 in the US.

Pic 2 showing Elizabeth in light blue bibs and thick pigtails at 2h22 (also full view front+rear). Soon after that also sitting at the dinner table next to Jim-Bob, both in bibs, Jim-Bob in light blue, not hickory stripes bibs.

Pic 3 showing an older teen boy in white or similar bibs but a shirt over them (1h42, ep 11). Jim-Bob also wearing bibs (probably the hickory striped ones) under his black pullover. Also sitting inside like that at 1h57.

Pic 4 showing black boy Josh, the younger brother of Jodie, in medium blue bibs at 14 minutes (ep 9).

Also some good rear views of Jim-Bob (4 minutes, 50, 1h21). Hands in back pockets at 1h06.

Sorry, I forgot disc 2 (coming soon) including 2 new girls.

Year in film: 1990s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Alexander ~12+17, Philipp ~6
Available on DVD: yes

Bib occurence: medium-
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Dutch Colin Klippenberg (pics 1-3) in light blue bibs also worn backwards (like other jeans with suspenders), one strap loose and also in fishing bibs in s3e1, 5 years later. Felix Schmarje around 5 or 6 yo in osh kosh hickory striped bibs in s3e1 (pic 4, 2 very brief scenes, the other one partly shown inside).

Unpictured in s1e5 in light blue jeans or bibs but with a jacket (brief scenes). In s1e6 he wore a short, dark union suit or similar.

And yet another suggestion. Thanks very much!

Pic 1 from s1e3, pic 2 from s1e8. But rather few and brief scenes. In season 3, I only found him in these fishing bibs (but too old anyway).

Typical family series. Not bad but rating 5-6 only. Also starring Patrick Bach.

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

Update 2: The Waltons – Season 7

8 Jan

waltons-s7bwaltons-s7

Time for The Waltons. Season 7 is the final season what needed to be rechecked. All pics from disc 1. Best scene is maybe the dancing scene of Jim-Bob and Elizabeth in s7e2. Also pictured in the season’s main entry.

Pic 1 showing Jim-Bob sitting in hickory striped bibs in his car (at 2h14) ep 3 or 4 (different episode numbers in Germany as the 1st one is a double episode).

Pic 2 showing him climbing down a ladder in the hayloft. Obviously in the same pair which is quite tight. I don’t like much hickory stripes, nor the shirt nor his 1970s haircut. He’s also very tall and thin now. Scene at 34 minutes (ep 1).

Pic 3 showing Elizabeth feeding the pigs in medium blue bibs, also standing up. At 25 minutes (ep 1).

Pic 4 showing a sitting scene of Jim-Bob at 2h36. Unfortunately brief scene and in the background only.

Another Catholic teen girl in rare dark cotton bibs I already had in s7e2. There’s also a scene where she and Jim-Bob both wearing bibs standing close to each other (at 2h11).

Comment: At least Giulia Lombardi (little kid, middle, front), looking like a boy although a long ponytail, in hickory striped shortalls, standing and sitting on the floor (latter in pigtails), and in light grey Lederhosen next to an older girl and some boys. Perfect blue eyes, same as her little brother Luca.

Although on DVD (I still consider buying it), it seems quite rare and there’s only one backstage clip (not showing the shortalls) and not even a trailer. Some pics are on the web

Some more infos on my Lederhosen blog (rating 8), soon on my pigtails blog (rating 7). Rating 3-4 for now for the shortalls. I assume few good scenes.

Does anybody know this movie and can tell if it’s worth buying?
