Comment: So, the final post of this movie series. Some good scenes, but as said this is not my favourite movie. The only one with soaked wet scenes of Dragonfly in bibs. Also lying in the creek on his stomach and sitting and good rear views but some from a distance. One very good rear view of him (dry) when on all fours  at the cliff (opposite view of pic 4); I don’t want to post that. Also a fighting scene with everyone at the cliffs.

Pic 1 showing Dragonfly sitting in the canoe. Also standing up and changing seats. Several views of sitting also front views. Pic 2 the long wet creek scene. The other pics are near the end showing Tom and Big Bob, again shirtless in worn bibs.

Good scenes at: 2′ Dragonfly rear, 14 canoe, 19 canoe, 25 sit, 26 sit front, 29 wet, 34 rear, 38 soaked wet, (49, 52, 47 others, not bibs), 1h00 rear on all fours, 1h02 sit. Behind the scenes: 1,3,4. At 0’50 the upper parts of Dragonfly’s red underwear are shown through the side of the bibs. Again photo galleries but not as good as the other DVDs. At the beginning Old Man Paddler in bibs. Then many scenes in the canoes, also the villains. Not boring but lengthy. And maybe the best scenes of Bob.

Comment: I have recently finished all 5 DVD, film 2 coming soon. Film #1 is maybe the 2nd or 3rd best movie. Many good sitting and walking scenes of Dragonfly. Few wet scenes and I think only partly and not soaked like in films 2+3. Also shirtless scenes of Dragonfly (jeans shorts) and Bill in other shorts.

Pic 1 showing Dragonfly’s 1st occurence in the series (although not filmed first) sitting and fishing at the creek. Also close-up scenes. Partly undressing shown (detaching straps only). Also at the beginning Tom and Big Bob and their dad are shown in bibs (pic in main entry).

Pic 2 is near the end. Dragonfly sitting barefooted in bibs unlike few moments ago. Girl Circus also barefooted. Also standig up and walking, also good rear view while walking.

Pic 3 showing him standing with the hands in his pockets. Very good walking scenes in the woods.

In pic 4 is one of the best sitting scenes and Circus looking at him. Bibs appear light blue, bib at higher position. Poetry in darker bibs, also sitting. Good sitting scene of Little Jim in dark blue jeans but not bibs.

Some more good scenes of Dragonfly like sitting and standig up at a swing. I think also Bob and Tom later shirtless but not as much as in other movies, Also the Swamp Robber in bibs (beginning and end) and again Dragonfly sitting but dark lit.

Again very good galleries and extras including Dragonfly earlier and later in longer hair, but I haven’t checked the extras, recently.

Best scenes at: 6 sit (pic 1), 7 sit close-up, swim, 8 sit shorts, 9-10 shorts, 12-13, 14 sit, 21 sit, 29 sit, 32 sit best (pic 4), 34 rear, 35, 40 sit, 47 sit, 49 sit swing, 50, 53 standing up, 56 sit porch (pic 2), 1h04 standing.

Comment: The 3rd movie has, as said rather few scenes in the first half, except little Tom and some scenes of Big Bob and toddlers at the Revival. At the beginning, Tom and Big Bob finishing putting on their bibs shirtless (pic 3). Their dad also wore bibs (shown often) and grabbed Bob at his bib or straps.

Pic 2 is a bit later showing Dragonfly in very short hair, headshot only (more shown in the DVD extras). Also shown his film sister Circus and his sister in real life (unpictured, both not in bibs). Pic 1 is a bit later, showing Tom and Bob (and Shorty Long) with the legs cuffed up. Pic 4 showing Tom at the Revival (also showing Little Jim on left and Bill).

Good swimming scenes (shirtless) in shorts, and later sitting, including Circus, Big Jim and Little Jim (also on my shiny shorts blog, no pic). Dragonfly in tight jeans shorts (like in film #1). Bob and Tom going in the creek in their bibs, soaked wet (front+rear).

At the Revival, there are many people and kids (relatives of the actors) but none in bibs except Tom and 2 toddler boys (at 39 and 44 min.) Dragonfly wore tight, dark purple pants. Most wearing ties, even Tom over his bib. Good plot, some funny scenes and touching songs.

Some more pics of film 3 at the character list (Bob, Tom) and Kody and Tom with ties here.

Good scenes: 1 (pic 3), 7 swim, 14 swim best, 18 shorts, 39+44 toddlers, 51 Tom rear, 52 Tom sit. Behind the Scenes: 0, 1 swim, 6 woman stroking Dragonfly over his hair twice what he doesn’t like. Again good photo galleries.

Comment: Time for the Sugar Creek Gang. In this final episode, there are very good sitting scenes and close-ups (of Dragonfly) and it’s the only one with Little Jim in bibs (light blue bibs, more pics at the character list and story 45). Again, the pics are not the best scenes; Sorry, no close-ups.

Best close- up scenes, when they make a scarecrow (pic 2, also sitting rear view at 15′, see story 83). Some more sitting scenes in the school at 55 minutes (story 45, also close up).

Pic 1 showing Dragonfly in a green camouflage shirt and a scarf later in the movie. He’s grabbed by the straps from the rear by Little Jim. His hair is also a bit longer on top unlike most of the time.

Pic 3 showing Poetry in dark blue bibs on left, Little Jim and Dragonly making a circle. Poetry’s bibs looking much darker, even in the sun than in the school at the end (pic 5). More pics of him in the character list. So I think that maybe everyone had 2 pairs for changing.

Pic 4 showing Tom and Big Bob. Bob’s baggy bibs are light blue here and appear darker in front of the school.

It’s definitely not the best film of them. Poor plot and no wet scenes. But still rating 10.

Best scenes at: 3 sit, 7 sit, 12 walk, 13 Poetry sit on bed, 14 standing, 15 sitting hay, 16 close-up, 21 Poetry, 39 Little Jim, 41 Little Jim sit, 44 Little Jim+Dragonfly standign up, 46 rear, 52 Bill (no bibs), 52 Dragonfly rear, 54 sit, 54 standing up, 55 walking rear, 55 Dragonfly sit, side  (56 close up front). Behind the scenes: 1 Dragonfly longer hair, 7 sit, 8 standing up, 13 sit. Many good pics in the galleries, especially 2+3.

Comment: As announced a first, separate entry. My first of the 5 DVDs and still my favourite. I already have more pics of this movie in other posts. Please note, that all my pics are not necessarily showing the best scenes as I don’t show too indescent pics like close-ups. I try to describe my favourite scenes. There are lots.

Most shown and most notable is Dragonfly (Kody Brown, pic 1, 3 and 2 on left). I like the dark green shirt. Funny scenes with the hat of the female teacher (also good rear view of him). Pic 2 also showing chubby Poetry in dark blue bibs. Good plot which is a mix of books #6+7.

Very good are following scenes: Beginning (pic 1), Dragonfly announced finding the cave (pic front, here under Dragonfly pic 2) and even better hunker down (rear view), another one of that in the DVD extras, in the cave when leaving it (front), sitting on the grass after school when Big Jim shows the letter (pic main entry pic 1), near the end 2 lying scenes, one in the cave and at the end at Old Man Paddler. Also some few sitting scenes, also of others like young Tom, but I don’t like much the other actors. No or few shirtless and wet scenes.

Good scenes at 5,9,12,15,26,35,37,44,46 swing no bibs, 54, 1h02 lying, 1h03,1h05,1h07 underwear,1h13. Also many good scenes at the extras (Behind the scenes 1,3,8,12, Bloopers 3, photo galleries lots, especially #3). Kody’s sister is shown at school like at 52 minutes, sitting behind him looking similar but not in bibs. Bill and Little Jim sharing a bed at 50′.

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).

No need for replacing hundreds of pics of entries rating 3-4. Some pics are still tiny. I will continue, checking my older entries. Sometimes, I only have headshots or no pics at all, and many movies are now available online and some are worth to be completetly watched.

I have started replacing the tiny pics and uploading new pics of my earliest entries (-> archives – January 2011). Many old entries are also one of the best.

On tiny pics, someone can’t identify things like hickory stripes or parts like straps or braces. I don’t upload high res pics for copyright reasons. The webspace is also limited. Other pics and clips can often easily found online.

Some old entries still have tiny pics. Screenshots, I made from own clips are in a different folders and all on older PCs. Most pics are from YouTube clips (meanwhile, many have been deleted) and I usually made 5-10 pics, so there are thousands. Some had different (foreign or alternate) titles. It’s also lots of work. So please be patient. I will announced from time to time, when I uploaded complete new pics of interest.

Some new pics in (in here currently boys only):

Robbers, Rooftops and Witches (CBS Library, rating 10)

Clay Farmers (rating 6+)

Rascal (rating 6)

Author, Author! (rating 7)

The Education of Little Tree (rating 4)

Papa Was a Preacher (pic 5), The Waltons (main overview). Secondhand Lions (rating 8), Changeling (2008), The Seven Little Foys. Coming soon: the next month, February.

Please also note my previous entry of a rare Australian series.

The Waltons – s4e9 Tom rating 10

17 May

waltons-s4e9bwaltons-s4e9c

13 or 14 yo darkhaired Tom (younger looking), played by Jackie Earle Haley in s4e9 (1975) is my favourite actor in the complete Waltons series! Jim-Bob is either too young or too tall and thin but great in this season as well. As said before my most favourite season.

Pics 1+2 at 5 minutes (disc 3), pic 3 at 29 minutes. One similar scene running out of school at 11 minutes next to several other, also older boys in overalls. I mentioned him before but only have one headshot. Good scenes in this one-room schoolhouse (not sure about that, there are obviously 2 doors and other rooms as well).

At least one more brief scene inside school. Unfortunately I also encountered problems playing this disc but at a later episode not showing him. I can’t acces 10 minutes here and 5 minutes there (not as worse as in Dallas). No visible scratches.

He’s very handsome and I was sure that he also appeared in other movies and series (“The Bad News Bears (1976)”, The Partridge Family (1973 episode), Planet of the Apes (1974 series) and many later movies. I have to check all of these although if no bibs scenes.

He has a high pitched German dubbing voice. Interesting how he looks nowadays. He even played Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) and in Little Children (2006).

More kids in this episode and season coming soon, next to an Erin list and some book entries. One more pic of him in the season 4 entry

Story 125: Overalls in butt crack – The Waltons

9 May

waltons-s4butt3waltons-s4butt2

Overalls – like other pants and underwear – sometimes are being pulled in the butt crack, more or less. I think this depends on some reasons. 1. The size and cut of the pants and maybe the kind fabric, 2. The body and butt dimensions, 3. especially concerning overalls how they are worn (baggy or not) and 4. body movements.

Pic 1 is from s4e3 disc 1 at 1h52. Jim-Bob wearing white bibs who are rather tight, especially at the front (see pic below). I’m not sure about the fabric. There are white stripes and it looks like that they are bleached hickory stripes. Fabric looks sturdy, probably denim, not soft corduroy. White bibs on a farm don’t make much sense. Is this authentic? I have to search in vintage catalogues. Bibs for carpenters and painters have different fabrics and no stripes.

Jim-Bob is already tall and very thin and I think has a flat butt. So they are not that tight and roomy on the back. And he’s lifting up his arms. When sitting (like at 2h12), the upper edges on the rear flaring out. On disc 2 at the creek (ep 5 at 16 min) he has his upper side buttons open. Otherwise they would be too tight for sitting.

I have seen many movies but it’s quite rare showing the butt crack that much. I mainly remember Dragonfly of The Sugar Creek Gang in movie 4. Mary Ellen is similar on pic 1.

Pic 2 is at 1h50 showing Jason (bibs appear purple), Mary Ellen and Erin in light blue bibs (simple suspenders) playing Baseball. There’s also the black boy Jody in beige bibs. Pic 3 is at 1h37 showing Jim-Bob’s and Jason’s front and the color of their bibs.

There are more scenes of interest on disc 1 of season 4 (supporting actors). More updates coming soon. I think I will make entries of Erin and Elizabeth as well. I prefer dark blue bibs but Jim-Bob is rating 10 here. As said, season 4 is my favourite.

Update: Ben’s bibs also often in the butt crack although baggy, especially on disc 7 or season 5.
