Sugar Creek Gang – characters

22 Jun

sugarcreekgang-5

After The Waltons, I’m now watching again The Sugar Creek Gang movies (currently film 5, missing film 1 and parts of film 3). Initially, I don’t want to use many pics and at the beginning, I only had 2 tiny pics, showing some of the actors. But there are 5 movies, several actors and many bibs scenes.

The movies are probably rather unknown outside the US, and in case someone don’t know all the movies or don’t know, who’s who, I make this list, showing the characters and their overalls. I’m still not sure, if everybody just wore one pair each. Due to the simple camera, some occur much lighter in the sun and darker in the backlight and when wet. I have to compare them, especially in film 5 and 1.

I will create separate posts of each of the movies, soon.

Dragonfly

dragonfly-film2dragonfly-film4dragonfly-film2b

My favourite actor and all time rank #2. He wore faded bibs, bib at low position. Legs cuffed up when in water. Beige sneakers. Maybe the actor, showing the most in bibs. He wore them always, except at the Revival (~80% of film 3, tight purple cotton pants) and when swimming (shirtless tight jeans shorts, film 3+1). Soaked wet in bibs in film 2, also good rear view. Also wet in film 2 (rear, distance). Good close-ups and sitting in film 5. My favourite is still film 4. More infos later.

Tom

tom-film3tom-film4

Youngest actor (except for toddlers) and he always wore bibs, even in church and at the Revival (+tie) but less shown than Dragonfly. He becomes part of the gang at the end of film 4. Often shown shirtless in bibs. Brother, also in real life, of Big Bob. Best are the photos at the DVD extras (sitting rear). Often sitting, rather few rear views. Best movie maybe film 2. Some funny scenes. Often being pulled at the bib by Bob, once pulling Bob at his.

Big Bob

bob-film3bob-film5

The bad guy. Also always in bibs and mostly shirtless but not shown that often. Oldest character besides the men and older brother of Tom. Faded bibs with holes at the knee. Bibs are very baggy. Best scenes including wet in film 3 and 5. His bibs appear light blue in film 5. Could be another pair or maybe just washed.

Poetry

poetry-film4poetry-film5poetry-film5b

Chubby boy. Around half of the time in bibs. Least in films 4+3. Then in regular jeans. Men’s bibs, legs cuffed up. Bib often at low position. Side button(s) open. Bibs are dark blue, almost raw denim, at least in film 5 (pics 2+3). Not sure if they are 2 different pairs. Few sitting scenes.

Little Jim

littlejimlittlejim5

Very handsome boy, but only in bibs in film 5. Light blue, faded bibs, also sitting, but rather few and brief scenes only. Best scene hanging at a swing, together with Bill (Bill not in bibs). More infos later. Also sitting in nice swim shorts in film 3 (shiny shorts blog, rating 7, not pictured).

Other actors

Rest of the gang, including pigtailed girl Circus, not in bibs. Big Jim not even in jeans but beige, thin cotton pants. Some men in bibs including Old Man Paddler. Often sitting. I think no need for showing old men. At least 2 toddler in bibs (Revival, film 3). I don’t post pics of toddlers either. Most or all kids are siblings or relatives of the main characters. But I think noone else in bibs. No women in the movies but at least one in one of the novels. Maybe in the DVD extras? Still hoping for a remake. There’s one private project (probably no bibs).

Update: Mamma Mia! (2008)

19 Jun

mammamia4mammamia2

Has been aired yesterday, but I almost missed it completely. Rebroadcasting on Wednesday noon on arte.

Obviously much more bibs scenes of Meryl Streep than assumed. Bibs are tight, (almost) raw denim and don’t have rear pockets. As said before, the simple bibs are a bit too short and sometimes she wore a tool belt. No braces but straps are knotted.

Some good movements and the ABBA music is of course very good, but honestly, she’s way too old (58). Sliding down the stair rail reminds me of “Sonnenallee” (blonde, longhaired boy in Lederhosen).

Main entry, rating 4

18 Jun

zooms2e1n1zooms2e1n2

I have checked several episodes and only found one boy in bibs (young, black boy from NY in s2e1). Also some more interesting scenes of the girls. And boys and girls in shiny shorts (soon on my other blog, rating 4). I haven’t found any other bibs than blue colored.

Pic 2 showing a girl in the same episode. Both not in the studio.

Pic 3 showing a pigtailed teen girl sitting in s3e17.

Pic 4 showing a girl (probably the same) sitting on the floor, barefooted trying to pick up ice cubes on s3e14.

There are so many good scenes, especially gymnastics. At least one more update later.

Main entry, still rating 6

Update: Mickey McGuire (film series)

14 Jun

mickeysthrillhunters-3mickeysthrillhunters-2

As announced, some more movies and interesting scenes.

Pics 1+2 are again from Mickey’s Thrill Hunters. In pic 1 there’s obviously the same actor, I already had with the modern haircut. Sleeveless shirt and 1 strap down.

In pic 2 there’s one boy in bibs hanging at the roof of a high building and other kids helping him by grabbing him at his bibs. Sorry to all victims of the fire in London. I captured this before.

Pic 3 from “Mickey’s Circus” showing some boys sliding in bibs. Also other actions on the playground.

Pic 4 from “Mickey’s Helping Hand” showing a boy in faded bibs. Maybe the same as in pic 1.

Probably most or all of the other movies showing boys and men in bibs as well, like “Mickey’s Luck”. Now also on my Western blog. Maybe one more entry later.

Main entry here, rating 7

Update: Where the Red Fern Grows (1974)

7 Jun

redferngrows1974b3redferngrows1974b2

I first found a DVD release of the 1992 sequel “Where the Red Fern Grows: Part Two”, but I haven’t found bibs in there except of the old man. Then I rechecked the 1974 movie. Previously, I only have seen the first half and I didn’t like much the light blue bibs of the main character (pic 2 on the left, rating 6) compared to the 2003 remake starring Joseph Ashton, I bought on DVD (rating 8).

I now found another boy in faded, hickory striped bibs who is also of interest. Hands in pockets. But the remake is still better. So still rating ~6-(7). One more new pic (distance, hands in pockets, showing both) at the main entry

/2011/01/05/where-the-red-fern-grows-1974/

/2011/01/05/where-the-red-fern-grows-2003/

I also found “Where the Lilies Bloom”, but the girl in bibs (Helen Harmon) is very young there. Maybe around 6 yo but even younger looking. Quite interesting movie, but probably no need for an entry.

I have updated some more entries but will make an update post, soon.
