Books 68: several – Story 143: Walking in stiff new overalls

19 Oct

mennonites2016

Because of my recent book purchase and previously finds, mainly about one-room schoolhouses (tagged book), I searched for more books and movies. So here my book results. Unfortunately, some of them are available only as snippet-view on Google.

I don’t remember any movie or series which is about the smell of new denim overalls, bullying or even the noise while walking. Most movies, set in the Great Depression show faded bibs. Even lengthy series like LHOTP and The Waltons have very few raw denim overalls. The pic is from a Mennonite documentary (entry coming soon). I also found some few more movies.

-Aronson: Mud and Dust (careful at school, 2 weeks before washing, removing rich style)

-Davis: Follow the Leader (strong odor, also girl)

-Nelson: Cassidy (not school but in empty store, smell, putting on, walking)

-Millard: Where Did All the Cowboys Go? (not school but at home, also girl)

-De Caux: Labor Radical (scraping tender skin)

-Chappel: Brighten the Corner Where You Are (stiff bibs cut into crotch)

Another one, I can’t find right now was about a boy who like the smell or stench of the bag where the new overalls of his granddad were.

Would also be a great plot for an audio book including noises of scrapping pant legs (and describing)

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

B-TV’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer 2003 + 2012

3 Oct

btvstomsawyer2012r6btvstomsawyer2012r4btvstomsawyer2012r3

School project (Bloomington, IN), film #2
Year: 2012
Year in film: ~1850s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: (teen) boys
Available on DVD: online
I own: no
Bib occurence: often
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.

Update: Kinderen voor Kinderen 18

kvk18fkvk18i

While replacing my tiny pics, I rechecked this show (rating 8). Some very good scenes of handsome boys and girls, also in raw denim bibs and perfect songs (ballad “Smoorverliefd”).

Pics 1+4 from song Pesten is geen Spelletje. The 3 girls in pic 1 also sitting on stairs and were later grabbed when standing. Some girls and I think at least one boy sitting on the floor. Pics 2+3 from Smoorverliefd. 2 more, larger pics in the first update. Girl with one strap down. The boy reminds me of De rode zwaan. Unfortunately rather few good scenes of him. Also soon on my pigtails blog.

There are widescreen clips on YouTube but better is the complete show in fullscreen.

Update: Forrest Gump

forrestgump-bus1forrestgump-bus2

There’s at least one other scene, I missed at the last broadcasting, but now found. 2 boys sitting in the bus in raw denim bibs. One boy is even older, probably a teen. I don’t assume more scenes.

All scenes are quite short. And most boys are quite young.

Main entry, still rating 5 (although I like raw denim bibs and cycling)

Update 3: Cedarmont Kids

16 Jul

cedarmont-sixlittleduckscedarmont-iboughtmeacat2

I forgot to post some pics, last time, especially the yellow striped shortalls and also the shirtless boy in shortalls. There are many kids and several good scenes, so one last update.

Pic 1 is from the song Six Little Ducks. Pics 2+3 from I Bought Me a Cat. Pic 4 from Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush. Maybe there are even more missing.

All scenes, I have found so far, are described in the 1st update.

Update: Unknown #1

unknown1dunknown1funknown1e

By checking my old PC and finding more pics of an unknown (different) movie on my sailor suit blog (please also take a look there), I came across some more pics of this one (I knew, I had). I upload them, in case that somebody might recognize movie or actors.

I still think, that’s a boy in bibs (pics 1+3, 4 on the right). Maybe a British (drama) movie, aired ~1989/1990 on Dutch TV. Mom is in Berlin (divorce plot?). Somehow the man looks German. Kids dressing like Mexicans using carpets. Who can help here?

/2011/05/06/unknown-1-boy-german-series/

Update: I also found my recording of the recent unknown movie/series. Maybe it’s Five Mile Creek. At least an adventure series, probably Australian. New pics on my other blog.

Benson

benson-s1-1979benson

Sitcom. Robert Guillaume. 150 ep, 7 seasons
Year: 1979-1986
Year in film: 1970s, 80s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Katie ~9-16
Available on DVD: S1+2 only
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least Missy Gold (sister of Tracey Gold who starred in one episode in 1985, probably not in bibs but in Growing Pains) in at least season 1 in dark blue, raw denim bibs. Also in light blue short shortalls and or similar. And in light red bibs or similar. Also in (bibslike) dresses. Both pics are from the intro (shown in s1+2). Fully shown in the yellow shirt in s1e2.

I found this by coincidence and only seen some few episodes (s1-3). Spin-off of “Soap (1977)”.

Seasons 2-7 are not available on DVD. I assume few scenes as she’s not shown that often and obviously rarely wore bibs. But I can’t say much about later seasons or other actors.

So rating 4 for now only.

Update : Cedarmont Kids

26 Jun

cedarmont-jackandjillcedarmont-skiptomylou-somersaultcedarmont-farmerinthedell

I have checked many clips, around 50 from different DVDs. Much more scenes than assumed, including boys and girls in raw denim bibs, boys and girls in shortalls, also shirtless boys. Also riding scenes, barefoot scenes and men in bibs. Maybe half of the songs, especially the bible songs don’t show bibs. Few teens.

Pics 1+5 are from “Jack and Jill”. Nice raw denim bibs also close-ups. The girl making a forward roll. Also rear views.

Pic 2 is from “Skip To My Lou”. Again the boy in raw denim bibs. The other boy in faded bibs and a yellow shirt. He makes a somersault (also rear view).

Pic 3 is from “Farmer in the Dell”. At least one boy in shortalls and a straw hat. One other boy and at least 2 girls in bibs. Also very good, like the catchy tune.

Pic 4 is from “Sarasponda” showing a boy in raw denim bibs barefoot.

Unpictured: (More entries coming later)

“Lord, I want to be a Christian” one girl in light blue shortalls, one black girl in khaki shortalls, both ~12 yo and sitting.

“I Shall Not be Moved” One older black girl in blue shortalls, one blonde girl in black bibs.

“Six Little Ducks” A young girl in yellow/white striped shortalls.

“Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush” the young blonde boy shirtless in white or similar shortalls. Also a very young girl, ~4-5 yo in light blue shortalls and a girl in light blue bibs.

“Do Lord” (Sunday School Songs) An older girl in longer skirtalls, colorful skirt.

“Row, Row, Row Your Boat” A boy in dark blue shortalls, girl in long faded bibs.

“Baa, Baa, Black Sheep” A boy kneeing in black bibs, an Asian girl sitting in blue shortalls.

“Old MacDonald Had a Farm” A young blonde girl riding in faded bibs

“Polly Put the Kettle On” 2 boys shirtless+2 girls sitting behind a table. One boy in white bibs, other in black. One young blonde igtailed girl in black.

“I Bought Me a Cat” Boy in raw denim, 1 or 2 others in blue sitting. I think 3 girls sitting in shortalls.

“Mary Had a Little Lamb” One boy in black bibs. 1 or 2 other boys in medium blue bibs.

Probably some more. Also soon on my shiny shorts blog (f, m rating 5).

My favorite is still “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain”. I also found a clip without lyrics. I also considered bying DVDs, but in Germany they are extremely expensive.

db1 also provided pics for Young People’s Specials: Umbrella Jack, starring 10 yo Joey Lawrence.

Who in bibs: boys ~5-13, girls ~4-12 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium+
Rating:  8/10 ?
Rating: ********
Comment: Some boys and girls in bibs. Thanks to the recent suggestion, I found this on YouTube by coincidence, first pics 3-5 which are from the song “School Days”. One younger, blonde boy in raw denim bibs (also brief rear view) and 2 older boys in blue shirts. Also outside the one-room schoolhouse, but from a distance.

Pics 1+2 are from the song “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” which is even better and also has girls. And good sitting scenes, also of older girls. Both from DVD Songs of America. I haven’t checked all songs and episodes, but  have to give at least rating 8 for now.

Reminds me of the Kidsongs vids, often same songs. I think I have to check it out more and make more entries. Can anybody help finding the best clips?

Update: Also boys sitting in raw denim bibs and girls in shortalls in “I Bought Me A Cat”. A young boy in baggy bibs in “There’s a Hole in the Bucket”. Also a boy in shortalls and hay scenes in “Do Your Ears Hang Low?”. Also at least earlier clips, so the blonde boy is even shown younger in 1995.

Update: Much more clips. Also barefoot and riding scenes. Skirtalls and old men.
