Update: Unknown #1

13 Jul


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?


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.



Unknwown 12: US movie or series

Unknown movie or series

Year in film: 1990s ?
Country: USA ?
Who in bibs: girl ~10 ?

I own: no, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this young black girl in light yellow shortalls, also sitting. Bib at low position.

Another unknown, short clip from a VHS recording. Captured in April 2004 and I think also recorded in 2004. Production however could be earlier, maybe the 1990s. More likely a movie than a TV series.

Rating 3 for now.

Who knows the name of actress or movie?

Der Hund aus der Elbe

Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Rachma 13
Available on DVD: no
I own: no, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: medium
Rating:  6/10

Comment: Yasemin Büyüksapci (Bueyueksapci on IMDb) in long dark blue bibs and an open shirt over them. Cycling, at least pushing a bike, also wet scenes lying in a sewer with a rat. Later in other clothes and undressing. Set in Hamburg. One man driving an open 1950s US car. Number plate Arizona RINGO. Hiding pets in cages underground. Recorded in or around 2004.

Kids detective series in Hamburg, I first thought of “Die Pfefferkörner” (rating 5), but I haven’t seen anyone from the gang. Then I thought of “Ki.Ka” (rating 4) but I also couldn’t find it.

One other boy with a bit longer dark hair wearing round glasses. The boy pictured is a Soccer fan. Who knows this title?

Although wearing a shirt, some nice scenes including rear views.

So rating 6.

Thanks very much Michi, for pointing out this title!

Unknown 10: Swedish child interview

Unknown German children’s magazine
Year: 1990, 1991 or 1992
Year in film: ~1990s
Country: Germany / SUE
Who in bibs: girl ~11 ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this blonde, probably Swedish girl sitting on the floor in faded blue bibs and a yellow belt. Maybe more kids at school? Early 90s or 1988/1989.

Another fragment, I found on one of my tapes. It’s about friendship.

A similar series like Stark! – Kinder erzählen ihre Geschichte (boy, rating 4). I think I can update entries without pics of non-celebrities and just put a bar over their eyes.

Maybe a Dutch EBU UER production as it has the original sound and the dubbing over it.

In today’s episode of the children quiz show “1, 2 oder 3” there’s a young girl around 8 yo sitting in dark blue bibs in the front row (bib at high position). I don’t have a recording of that.


Unknown 9: French movie 90s or 2000

24 Jan


French movie Les Parents Modèles”
Year: 1997
Year in film: 1990s ?
Country: France
Who in bibs: Chloe ~9, boy ~13 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no ?
Bib occurence: medium+ *
Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: At least this young teen boy, in shorter (7/8th) black or dark blue bibs and roller skates. Also a younger boy girl (Clémentine Pasco, probably the girl in the middle) in blue bibs (bib at low position). Red, white and yellow shirts.

I have checked once more some of my backups for my unknown movies on my other blogs, and found this new one (this pic only). Captured on TUE, April 29 2003 at 10.25 pm from French channel TV5 Europe, so obviously a French movie, series or documentary or magazine.

Probably not captured from an older VHS but directly. The movie could have been produced earlier, but the fashion looks like the 90s or 2000s although roller skates instead of inliners.The file name doesn’t give more hints. I think I don’t have a video. Either I haven’t found it yet, or it’s on one of my discs which can’t be read anymore. Or I just had captured this screenshot only what is likely due to the late time.

Does anybody know this movie? Or knows what was aired that day?

Another unknown, older French movie on my sailor suit blog (not overalls). Another quite new unknown movie on my shiny short blog, rating 9. 2 movies could be identified.

Update: db1 owns this movie. It’s called “Les Parents Modèles”. See comments. Update soon.

Unknown 80s shiny shorts movie

Maybe some knows the title of this movie or series. 2 more pics on my other blog including grown ups. Obviously early 1980s.

Update: Found: The Comeback Kid (1980)

Info 433: Unknown US 70s movie found – also bibs

14 Dec


I just have found it. It’s the Italian series La pietra di Marco Polo (1982). Also a young boy in beige bibs. Entry coming soon. More infos and pic on my Lederhosen blog.

Maybe I would have found it on other ways, as I still searching for another 1990s Italian coming of age movie (unknown #9, staircase scene, Lederhosen blog)

Info 428: Unknown 70s US or German series

6 Dec

I have another unknown series, this time with a screenshot. A shirtless boy with longer dark hair (probably not involving bibs).

Can someone help?

Entry on my Lederhosen blog.

La pietra di Marco Polo

Unknown 4: 1990s Mennonites or Amish docu

13 Jul

unknown-amish-docu unknown-amish-docu-1999

Religious community documentary
Year: 1990s
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: boys ~7-18
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: partly on VHS?
Bib occurence: medium ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Some boys and men in I think dark blue bibs and straw hats.

Must be a 1990s documentary as this German channel “Eins Plus” existed until 1993 and I doubt that this is set in the 80s. I’m not sure if I still have some parts on VHS or even later transferred on DVDr. Recently I just found 3 tiny screenshots. When I have more time I will search and check for the movie but I doubt that I have it completetly and maybe haven’t written the title. Maybe someone know it?

I think that these are rather Mennonites. And then I thought that all Amish and Mennonites wear overalls. Later I mainly have seen them wearing simple pants with suspenders. And if overalls mainly black ones.

Interesting docu and I remember good scenes including rear view (maybe climbing up a fence ?).

Rating 4-5. Also nothing new about my other unknown movies.
