The Homecoming: A Christmas Story (stage play and musical)

13 Jul


Searching for books of the movies on my one-room schoolhouse list, I searched again for The Waltons (Earl Hamner’s Spencer’s Mountain, I only have the abridged Reader’s Digest version). Then I found a script of the musical by Evelyn Svensson (The Dramatic Publishing Company) on Google Books showing a b&w photo on front. Performed by the Steeple Players, Hendersonville, TN (unpictured). There are some more pics also with a younger boy on

There’s the original 1998 stage play by Christopher Sergel performed in 2015 by the Theatre Guild of Rockingham County (TGRC), pictured on where the musical is based on. There’s a short slideshow on YouTube showing a blonde teen girl and a teen boy, both also sitting.

There are also other plays and musicals (pics on, and a 2005 play on which also has a pic of younger boys sitting on the floor). Probably much more plays, but I haven’t found better ones by a brief research.



Update: Pierino colpisce ancora

9 Jul


I have rechecked this movie and hope to find a better image quality, but probably there isn’t any better due to the age of this 1982 movie. So the corduroy fabric is hardly to see. Maybe on a DVD on a big screen. 3 more pics to also show the full length. Nice grey bibs, bib at high position, appears even higher with the scarf. But flared legs and backside simple suspenders till the butt. Boy has longer 70s-like hair and often a cap. Bibs are surprisingly not baggy. It seems that he would wear a belt, but I think he didn’t.

Rather few scenes and mainly in the first half only. Also sitting at school (incl. sitting down) but only this side view and headshots. Near the end, the man Pierino in bibs as well, I think blue bibs and one strap down but brief scene and not of interest.

I prefer the 1981 Pierino contro tutti which I own on DVD.

Main entry, still rating 6 at



Update: Little Boy (2015)

7 Jul


And another movie completely checked. Jakob Salvati wore many different pairs, black cotton, light brown corduroy, light blue and dark blue jeans bibs and also coveralls. And some other boys in jeans bibs, one in light blue hickory striped.

Pic 1 showing him in light blue bibs with overlapping straps, also walking rear view. Red shirt. Scene at 57 minutes. Also same clothes at 33 but with a cap.

Pic 2 is at 1h31 in dark blue bibs and cap but with a jacket. Pic 3 in corduroy bibs and boots, also sitting on the bed (somewhere between 15 and 33).

Pic 4 below showing a boy in light blue bibs at 13 minutes. Another boy briefly in dark blue bibs, headshot only inside. Pic 5 showing an older teen boy in medium blue bibs. Soon after that a boy in light blue hickory striped bibs is shown, also close-up, partial. Main character in corduroy bibs lying on the grass, also close-up, rear/side view.

Medium blue coveralls (jeans, legs cuffed up) at 35 minutes.

So many scenes. Unfortunately is the main character very young and rather few and brief scenes of others.

Main entry, still rating 4 at



Rolf Zuckowski: … und ganz doll mich (clip)

19 Jun


Music clip
Year: 1982
Year in film: 1980s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Julian ~7
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no
Clothing occurence: often
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Julian Maas in hickory striped bibs, also sitting.

How could I miss this one? By coincidence, I found this, searching for other kids songs.

Some great scenes. Standing (front+rear) and other.

Original 1981 song called “Ich mag” by Volker Lechtenbrink.

I preferred then the other, a bit older boy in ever bigger glasses and jeans.

He’s quite young and thin.

So rating 6-7. And great song.

There are also other clips of this song (live performance ZDF Hitparade) in bibs and a different, striped shirt. Probably also much other songs of Rolf Zuckowski or Rolf und seine Freunde. There’s also a blonde, young girl in light blue (non-jeans bibs or apron) on the cover of “Wir warten auf Weihnachten”. Another girl in jeans bibs in “Die Jahresuhr”.

Sugar Creek Gang #5 – Bob, Poetry continuity error

29 May


I regularly watch all 5 DVD over and over again, all rating 10. Currently vol #5 Teacher Trouble, which is my least favourite one, still watching it.

At the beginning, there are the Till brothers shown, sitting and standing, both in light blue bibs. One scene later at the school, Big Bob’s bibs are much darker. But I think both are the same brand or even pair. Although the fabrics appear lighter in the sun, either it’s a different pair or being washed and bleached.  I have some more entries of them, showing Bob’s bibs darker.

I like chubby boys, but somehow not Poetry. But that’s how the character is. I think, in the B-roll is shown, that he has a pillow under his shirt. But maybe not always. He often has his right side buttons open and the bibs are quite baggy and the bib at low position. I don’t like Bob nor Poetry, but I prefer Poetry’s bibs rather than Bob’s very worn and baggy ones. I don’t like much Tom either.

On pic 1 at home, Poetry wore a different pair and he looks older and nicer here. The bib pocket has 2 additional seams and rivets. In the same scene, when entering and leaving the house, he has a different pair (pic 3). Some more pics entering and leaving the house (stairs, front+rear) on the character list.

Some more continuity errors in film#2.





The Champeen (1923) – Our Gang

25 May


Classic comedy short film, silent, (Little Rascals)
Year: 1923
Year in film: 1920s
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Mickey ~9, other boys
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: medium+
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Some boys in bibs, also sitting scenes. Most of interest: freckled Mickey Daniels (pics 1+4) in dark, heavily ripped bibs, bib at low position, too long legs. Some other, mainly younger boys, mainly in faded bibs.

Another “new” DVD release. Not sure about that quality and if there’s also a colorized version. Pics from a YouTube clip. Unfortunately in a poor, probably not (much) remastered image quality. In total ~23 minutes. Probably there aren’t much better versions after almost 100 years.

I like classics, and freckled Mickey. So rating 6. I just found another, much better and colorized movie, coming later.

Main overview Our Gang list, rating up to 6




25 May


Year: 2017
Year in film: ~1936, 1931
Country: Finland, Estonia, Sweden
Who in bibs: Pauli ~6, women, men
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low-
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Eeti Salovuori in black bibs also sitting, and some men and women in bibs or bibslike clothes. Farm content. Set in ~1931 up to 1937.

I found this on IMDb (recent movie releases tagged farm). Few scenes only. The boy appeared in bibs near the end, starting at ~1h12. Also in long johns. Pic 3 at 26 minutes, I only noticed this headshot. Some more boys and kids but probably not in bibs and mainly shown far from a distance and bird’s eye.

I’ve checked many parts of the movie but haven’t seen it completely, so I might miss some scenes. English title: The Eternal Road.

For now rating 2-3 only.


The James Boys: Hello, Hello (clip)

24 May


Musical clip/show
Year: 1974
Year in film: 1974
Country: UK
Who in bibs: Stewart ~12 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: always
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: I think the youngest brother, Stewart Glen Palmer, *1962, so 12 yo in 1974 in blue bibs with a Rolling Stones tongue on the bib. Pics from the German show “Disco” (early 1974).

There are some good cover pics, also showing him sitting. I have to check for other and better clips. On the 1975 cover “Wake up Little Suzie” there are both shown in dark grey or similar bibs with light grey bib pockets. The brother Bradley Grant is 2 years older, so ~15 yo then.

Rating 4-5 for now.


Update: Christy (1994 movie)

20 May


2 better and larger pics of this one. Previously smaller pics and from a distance only.

Nice setting, barefooted and cuffed up legs. But I think rather few good scenes.

Main entry, still rating 4 for this pilot. (Series rating 6, linked there).

Comment: Ole in dark green water bibs in yesterday’s episode 6. Scene at ~18 minutes. They even talk about the pants, that they don’t want girls watching them in those. Unfortunately brief scenes especially this sitting scene. Mostly shown in shorts in the other episodes. Most handsome boy in this season is 14 yo Nils.

Also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 6) and also this and other seasons on my shiny shorts and bedroom blogs. My favourite season is season 3 in Tyrol, Austria (snow). There’s also a series about girls Die Mädchen-WG. Both teen girl and teen boy from there (also animal care), I have in
