Update: The Brave One (1956)

23 Feb


Some new pics of barefooted Michael Ray in The Brave One (rating 8). Adding tag Sitting M. Some nice scenes. Bibs now appear much lighter.

This movie is now also available on a digital restored DVD. Pics from a short YouTube sample. Great job by VCI Entertainment who also restored My Dog Shep (b&w, rating 7).

I still have to recheck the complete movie.

Update: Super Boy, Festigal

15 Dec


Yesterday, I reached this post with Tom Avni (rating 8). I prefer rechecking complete movies and as I first had problems finding a stream, I took the larger pics from Felix for the main entry (2+1 new pic).

Then I considered buying a DVD but it’s OOP. I finally found a complete stream under the Hebrew title but in a bad image quality and hardsubs. A typical family/comedy/crime film and rather few, but very good scenes (1st 15 minutes only) and mainly headshots. There’s also one girl at school in bibs but headshot and from a distance (pic 5 on the right).

There’s also a music clip/trailer on YouTube where his bibs appear dark blue (pic in main entry) and a live performance with around 10 teen girls dancing in light blue shortalls behin him (pic 2). Pic 4 showing an updated pic of Festigal (1997), also a girl in green bibs.

Main entry still rating 8

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




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.





Update: A Rural Community: Holtville, Alabama

10 Oct


By checking my DVDr for something for my other blog, I came across this movie and uploaded some more and larger pics. Some more on my PD album on Google Photos.

Pic 1 is probably the best scene, a shirtless boy walking. Pic 3 showing my often used pic from a distance. Pic 4 showing 4 boys, 2 younger of them in raw denim bibs.

Main entry, rating 8

Available on DVD: online
I own: no

Rating:  8/10
Rating: ********
Comment: By rechecking and replacing my tiny pics, I found that there are now 2 different movies. All pics except 1 from my existing post, titled B-TV’s Tom Sawyer (2012), rating 7, are in fact from the 2003 version made by the students.

All pics here are from the real 2012 version made by “Torbenson Productions” (maybe the teacher) and this one is even better. I never liked the tight, faded shortalls of the 2003 Tom Sawyer.

Nice raw denim, barefoot and shirtless scenes (shirtless at least 2 boys) and the raw denim bibs are also wet, looking like black. I think Tom Sawyer (pic 2 in the middle?) not wearing bibs here? The school scene is similar (same location) but the boy with the dunce cap (pic 3) has one strap down.

Note, the very long bibs in pic 2 and the boy in bibs lying on the ground in pic 4. The boy in pic 5 is also shown close-up. Pic 6 is a behind-the scenes and not full screen.

Rating 7-8 for this one. Also rather few boys in bibs, around 3. Shorter lake scene. Other Tom Sawyer posts coming soon.
