Comment: At least Emma Schweiger in short, light blue shortalls, also sitting. Long, open shirt (this time with sleeves) over them.

Sequel of Conni & Co. (rating 4) and I prefer the darker shortalls.

Wind at My Back – update 2

20 Nov


I’m currently rewatching seasons 3+1 starting with disc 4 of season 3 as I assumed school scenes and raw denim bibs in there. Unlike the last updates more than 1 year ago, I’m watching the complete DVDs at regular speed. Previously, I only checked scenes, I noted at the 1st watching.

Rather few good scenes and the younger boy Fat often wore a closed jacket but even just the legs are nice. I wonder, why he wore bibs at all in winter and no farm setting. Probably it should look more like The Waltons. Fat maybe should match Jim-Bob as the youngest boy and Hub maybe Jason or Ben. Tomboy Maisey might should match Mary-Ellen, although not the sister here.

Pic 1 showing the great mirror scene with Fat (ep 36 at 24 minutes on disc 4) showing both front and rear. Sorry, I thought, I already had this. Mirror scenes are always great.

Pic 2 showing Maisey in ep 27 at 7 min (disc 1). Also rear view and also sitting, but hands on her lap. I think she’s rarely shown without a jacket.

Pic 3 showing Hub in raw denim bibs (ep 38 at 5 minutes). Also headshot. He rarely wore raw denim bibs.

Pic 4 showing full view of Fat in ep 39 at 27 minutes. Also side/rear view. Best scene is the cycling scene in ep 39, I already had.

Some plots are interesting and funny, others without the kids often boring. Main entry rating up to 8

Rating:  4/10

Comment: Canadian Katharine Isabelle in colorful shortalls in s5e2 Zero Hour (pictured) also kneeing on the ground. Also a girl in shortalls in s6e10, maybe some more in other episodes.

Interesting series of famous Bradbury. I only remember having seen s4e4 on TV with Zachary Bennett in tighty whiteys episode based on Something Wicked This Way Comes.

For bibs/shortalls, rating 4 for now only.

Update 2: Who Has Seen the Wind

17 Nov


I found a new stream, again in better image quality than the 2nd YouTube clip and so replaced my pics of the 1st update. Pic 1 is slightly different and pic 3 is a new one. Movie rating 8.

There are also school scenes, most notably at the beginning, maybe not a one-room schoolhouse, although set in the rural 1930s but in Canada. I think 3 boys in raw denim bibs including one chubby boy. But few good scenes inside the class but some better ones on a playground.

Some very good scenes and a handsome boy, but I think, no need for buying it. I think too few good scenes, mainly near the end.

Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium+ ?
Rating:  3/10 ?

Comment: At least this blonde boy in ripped of, hickory striped bibs. Rural setting and also riding in them. I think it’s the main character Peter Malmsjö. The other (taller) boy is Stefan Grybe, same age.

I don’t remember the complete movie. Also skinny dipping scenes.

For bibs, rating 3-4 only. I don’t like much this movie either.

Play School (1966)

Country: Australia
Who in bibs: Noni ~30
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ??
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At leastNoni Hazlehurst in dark blue, I think non-jeans bibs in 1984 episode 833. Probably more in bibs?

I found this by checking some Australian series. But I don’t know all episodes.

Maybe an interesting series, based on the UK series, which also needs to be checked.

For bibs rating 2-3 for now only.

Update: Drakosha i kompaniya – corduroy ?

10 Nov


I have checked the episodes with the redhaired main character in brown bibs (ep 8, 10, 20, 35). Thanks again, db1!

The same pair of bibs appears sometimes dark blue inside and light blue and light grey outside. Maybe even purple. But I assume that they are brown, although dark lit inside. And the straps are striped, so probably the bibs are of corduroy fabric.

I haven’t found streams in better image quality or HQ (publicity) pics.

Pic 1 is from ep 35 (no complete undressing shown). Pics 4+5 from ep 10. The other 2 from other sources, unknown episodes also showing better jeans bibs of the girl. There are also men in bibs (medium blue working bibs).

I don’t like brown bibs nor cordoroy, and the kids are very young. Rather few good scenes (like sitting) and dark lit inside. Rating 4(-5) was correct. Funny series, though.




Conni & Co.

9 Nov


Family film. Emma Schweiger
Year: 2016
Year in film: 2000s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: girl Conni ~13
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least Emma Schweiger in short, faded shortalls, also sitting on the floor. Sleeveless red and also white shirt.

I found this by trying to recheck Keinohrhasen (woman, boy, rating 3)  but I still haven’t seen both movies completely. Pics are from the trailers. There’s also a 2017 sequel where she wore light blue shortalls, but needs to be checked completely as well, like for other actors.

I don’t like the “older” Emma Schweiger. Not that funny anymore compared to the young girl. I also don’t like these modern mainstream movies.

Rating 4 for now only.

Also starring her dad Til, Iris Berben and Heino Ferch. One production company is called Barefoot Films.
