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.

Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Alexander ~12+17, Philipp ~6
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
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.

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).

Uomini & donne, amori & bugie

3 Jan

uominidonneamoribugie-b

Drama starring Ornella Muti
Year: 2003
Year in film: 1962-(1969)
Country: Italy
Who in bibs: Veronica ~8 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
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?

Update 2: Operation Splitsville

19 Nov

operationsplitsville-n1operationsplitsville-n3

I have rechecked “Operation Splitsville” but as usual at high speed (currently on YouTube in very good image quality).

At least one more older boy, around 10 yo, makes 4 boys and also 2 more girls makes 4 girls. But rather few good scenes, mainly at the beginning.

Most often shown is the young blonde boy, around 6 yo in hickory striped bibs. I don’t like him.

The movie is good, some handsome boys. But there are lots of similar family movies. I first thought of Eric Hendershot as director. But due to the few good bibs scenes still rating 5-6 only. Needs to be rechecked again more carefully the next broadcasting.

Update: Chissà perché… capitano tutte a me

12 Nov

chissaperchecapitanotutteame-n

As announced there are some good scenes, I have previously missed. Cary Guffey in hickory striped bibs like in the other Bud Spencer movies. But there are 1 or 2 very good sitting scene, also close-up.

And also boys in white, partly shiny Soccer shorts (rating 6 on my new blog). Unfortunately few scenes only.

Main entry here, boy, women rating 5

/2015/04/09/chissa-perche-capitano-tutte-a-me/

I also have rechecked Piranha (1978) rating 7 which is maybe even better than rating 7, sitting, rear view, wet. But unfortunately only one good, but short scene. Hickory striped bibs as well.

Update 3: The Waltons – Season 6

11 Nov

waltonss6cd5at13waltonss6cd4at1h36

I’m quite busy and currently watching less the Waltons. But here are some scenes of disc 4 + 5 of season 6. Rather few good scenes. At least nothing much new.

Pic 1 showing Elizabeth riding in raw denim bibs (disc 5 at 13 minutes, ep 18). She wore raw denim bibs before (even dancing). Also again in light blue, almost white bleached bibs like sitting. There’s a young girl Katherina in beige bibs (sorry, I forgot to make pics).

Pic 2 showing Jim-Bob walking (disc 4 at 1h36, ep 14). Bibs are not hickory striped which he often wore especially with that shirt.

Pic 3 showing Jim-Bob and Ben painting in coveralls (disc 5 at 1h59, ep 22). Maybe they wore pants or even bibs underneath. Also quite interesting.

Pic 4 showing Jim-Bob dancing (and standing up, brief scene). I think these bibs are hickory striped. Fabric is more sturdy and often in the butt crack. Disc 5 at 51 minutes.

Some few more scenes soon descibed at the season 6 entry.

Update: Run the Wild Fields (f/m)

8 Nov

runthewildfields2runthewildfields3

By rechecking some movies for my new shiny shorts blog like “Air Bud” and for my pigtails blog like “Father Murphy” (both movies also here), I found this one and first thought it might be new one, but I already had an entry (rating 6). Next to 11 yo tomboy and farm girl Alexa Vega in baggy bibs set in the 1940s, there are at least 3 boys, I previously haven’t found (one of them even in shortalls or ripped off bibs) .

Currently completetly on YouTube but I only have checked it at high speed.

Very good movie. However, most often shown is the girl. Wearing bibs for a girl in the 1940s was quite rare but they are even baggy. Several good scenes of her including sitting (inside) and outside fishing. Sowing on the fields (front view walking backwards) and carrying hay (also rear view). Also hands in her pockets at the beginning. Pic 1 also at the beginning. I think the bibs are hickory striped. As usual, this can’t be seen from a distance and with the online image quality.

The boys are mainly shown in the middle. Unfortunately, I only found these 2 brief scenes. But not bad either.

Good farm movie and more scenes than first assumed. I think now rating 7-8 instead of 6. Soon on my pigtails blog (rating 6).
