Dark Awakening (2014)

13 Oct


Horror film
Year: 2014
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: USA
Who in bibs: Danny ~6 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: William Pifer in faded blue bibs. Also sitting on the floor. Pic at 28 minutes. Another scene at 25 minutes also rear view while running upstairs and walking. Obviously these 2 brief scenes only. He mainly wore other clothes.

Another suggestion. Thanks!

But the boy is very young and I don’t like his haircut and I think rather few or very few scenes. Outside with a jacket, so not sure if bibs as well but likely.

So rating 3 for now only. The movie is very interesting, though. Nice ghost girls. But probably few good scenes either. Nice house and bedroom scenes.


Falsche Bewegung

12 Oct


Drama by Wim Wenders
Year: 1975
Year in film: 1970s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: Mignon ~14
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium-
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: Nastassja Kinski in very faded blue, long bibs. I think quite baggy and without a bib pocket.

Pic 3 from the trailer (at 15 minutes in a train, also making a headstand). Pics 1+2 are at around 22 minutes. Full view in very few and brief scenes. Also later shown, but wearing a jacket.

I found this by coincidence.

Quite interesting, especially for the 70s, but obviously rather few good scenes.

So again rating 4 only.

English titles: “Wrong Move”, “Wrong Movement”, “False Movement”. Starring Rüdiger Vogler and Hanna Schygulla. Based on Goethe.


Tom Sawyer 2010 stage play Island Scene

11 Oct


Unknown School Stage play/musical
Year: 2010
Year in film: 2010
Country: USA
Who in bibs: boys ~11-14 ?
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: always
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn and Joe Harper all barefooted, 2 of them in bibs including sitting. One in light blue, one in dark blue, the latter ones quite baggy. Not sure who is who, probably Tom in the middle and maybe Huck on the left? Not sure about the state and name of school. On YouTube called “Tom Sawyer: Island Scene-2010 “Lazin’ Down The River” by froboythestud. 11 minutes.

Quite interesting but there are better movies and stage plays.

Rating 3-4.

The Worst Witch (2017)

10 Oct


Family series
Year: 2017-
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: UK, Germany
Who in bibs: Mildred ~12
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least Bella Ramsey as Mildred in tight, dark blue and I think in black or dark grey bibs (according to a pic). Also sitting in those blue bibs (on a broomstick). Pics from ep s1e1. Also many girls in long, bibs-like black dresses.

Currently  running on Kika, but I’ve never seen it and found during research.

Also on my pigtails blog, rating 6.

Rating 3-4 for now only. I assume rather few bibs scenes. But the series is still running.

There are also some other, related series (at least girls in dresses and beige aprons).

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



Now on TV: Winter’s Bone

9 Oct


Drama, nominated for 4 Oscars
Year: 2010
Year in film: 2000s ?
Country: The Netherlands
Who in bibs: Ree 19
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating:  3/10 *
Rating: ***
Comment: At least 19 yo Jennifer Lawrence as 17 yo Ree I think in grey camouflage bibs but under a jacket at around 6 minutes. Now on German’s channel One. Also a man in dark green coveralls.

Maybe I was wrong and they’re just regular camouflage pants and a T-shirt with a similar pattern. I found a pic of regular pants. But interesting movie. And very handsome boy (but not in bibs).

De zesde klas

9 Oct


Reality drama TV series, 7 ep
Year: 1980-1981
Year in film: 1980
Country: The Netherlands
Who in bibs: girls, boy ~12
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+ ??
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this girl (6th grader, 12 yo) in dark red, maybe corduroy bibs. Pic from ep 1. Obviously also another girl and also a boy in blue bibs according to a tiny pic on waarkeekjijvroegernaar.

And another Dutch family series. Unfortunately also not on DVD. Awarded series was rebroadcasted online on Z@ppelin in 2002 but nothing more left than an intro.

For the girl rating ~3-4. But probably even better are the blue bibs of the girl and boy. Not all are handsome. Filmed in 1980 (?) but looking and described as late 70s. Maybe filmed earlier?

So rating 4-5.

Book 66: Ben Logan: The Land Remembers

8 Oct

Today, I searched for one-room schoolhouses. I previously found (next to the well known movies and series like LHOTP) pics and books (even describing the smell of new overalls). By coincidence, I stumbled upon this 1975 autobiography by Wisconsin born Ben Logan who died in 2014.

On the snippet view on Google Books is a nice discription of the sound of the stiff pant legs, when a boy walked to the blackboard in new bibs. 3 boys (brothers) depictured in bibs on the cover (of some editions).

Although there’s obviously only this one direct mentioning, I ordered this book. (Will take some time to arrive and to read).

I have just finished a Western book featuring a blonde boy, but no bibs mentionings. Currently, I’m re-reading the Sheriff Ben “Danny” books.

Update: I mainly read the chapter about the school. Also about the smell of “new clothes” and “soap”.

Comment: At least this young boy, I think Adrien Francois sitting in dark blue bibs in s4e1 “Une famille pour Noël”. Maybe more actors/actresses in other episodes?

Another suggestion. Thanks!

Unfortunately again very few and brief scenes only. And I don’t like him.

So rating 3 for now only.
