Auf der Alm, da gibt’s ka Sünd’ (1950)


Heimatfilm starring Maria Andergast
Year: 1950
Year in film: ~1950 ?
Country: Austria
Who in clothing: boys ~6 ?
Who in clothing 2: men Lederhosen
Available on DVD: VHS, DVD *
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Some younger boys in H-Style suspenders and probably shorts (not sure about this or other boys in real Lederhosen). Few scenes of kids at the beginning and end, there from a distance. And men in Lederhosen, also dancing.

I found this by coincidence but can’t say much more. Alternate title: Auf der Alm da gibt’s koa Sünd.

More famous is the 1974 erotic movie with men and women in Lederhosen. But I don’t know boys or girls in there.

There are obviously better movies. Rating 2-3 for now only. Available on VHS and RC0 DVD, maybe no official release but DVDr.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory


Family film starring Gene Wilder
Year: 1971
Year in film: 1889 (sailor suit)
Country: USA
Who in clothing: Augustus ~12 Lederhosen or shorts
Who in clothing 2:
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: German Michael Bollner in traditional German clothes, either grey shorts or Lederhosen but not sure about the fabric but probably buckskin Lederhosen. Also a boy in yellow beige Cowboy clothes (soon on my western blog, rating 4). Maybe more kids or men in Lederhosen or traditional clothes at the beginning (scenes set in Germany).

I think, I’ve seen this movie several years ago and don’t remember much of it. I prefer the more famous 2005 remake starring Johnny Depp (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) which I even own on DVD.

Great story by Roald Dahl. I don’t like Gene Wilder but R.I.P.

Needs to be rechecked the next broadcasting.

Rating 3-4 for now only.


Meine Kindheit in der Schule (Unsere Geschichte)


Year: 2012
Year in film: ~1950s ?
Country: Germany
Who in clothing: boys ~6-12, Lederhosen
Who in clothing 2: shorts
Available on DVD no
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Clothing occurence: medium ?
Rating:  8/10 ?
Rating: ********
Comment: Several boys in Lederhosen, some of buckskin, others of smooth finish or nappa leather, with and without suspenders. Many scenes of course at school also sitting (close-up scenes, smooth finish, but I have not recorded that one). Also boys usually living on ships (but not in sailor suit).

Has been aired today. Unfortunately I missed most of it (beginning and end due to the Oktoberfest, nothing new of that, yet) . Some very good scenes. Setting is from the late 1940s to the 1960s. Some scenes in color but not the best scenes. Probably all pics from the 1950s and are from the middle of this episode.

Maybe some footage scenes are also included in other episodes. Is this also called “Meine Kindheit… in der Schulzeit” ?

I have to recheck it later (not available on the mediathek, maybe soon on YouTube like other episodes).

For other episodes check out the A-Z list (“Meine Kindheit”, and “Unsere Geschichte” rating 3-8) . This one rating 7-8.


Unknown 17: Schinkenklopfer


I recently found this interesting clip showing boys in longer Lederhosen (H-style suspenders) and other traditional clothes (but not hats) dancing Schuhplattler (Gaudiplattler) and slapping each other on their bottoms. Some girls watching it. Reminds me of St. Florian Sängerknaben in 2011.

I’m not sure if this was being broadcasted (documentary ?) or is just a private recording. Probably a private clip as there’s no broadcasting logo (or must be much older).

Perfect introduction to the upcoming Oktoberfest this Saturday.

Rating 6-7.

Liebling der Matrosen


Comedy film starring Traudl Stark
Year: 1937
Year in film: 1930s
Country: Austria
Who in clothing: Christl ~7 sailor suit ?
Who in clothing 2:
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Clothing occurence: medium ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least 6 or 7 yo child actress Traudl Stark (pictured 1938 in Die kleine Prinzessin, released 1939) in I think a dark blue sailor suit (probably not sailor dress. but maybe other dresses as well), dark blue collar, 3 stripes, striped dickey and white sailor cap. Maybe sailor men as well. I don’t know of any boys.

I couldn’t find any clips and only very few stock pics and similar. One poster is colorized.

She also starred as tomboy in “Seine Tochter ist der Peter (1936)” and “Peter im Schnee”. I only have Seine Tochter ist der Peter (1955) with Sabine Eggerth in Lederhosen (unfortunately no pics as well). Not sure if Traudl wearing Lederhosen, too.

Obviously not on DVD yet. Rating 3 for now only.

Sorry, I’m quite busy and I don’t have much other movies to post.

Oktoberfest also coming soon, this Saturday 17th. I haven’t found much movies running in this 2 weeks, mainly some newer Heimatfilms, some of them I already have. Also still running Der Bergdoktor.

Untel père et fils


War drama
Year: 1943

Country: France
Who in clothing: boy ~7 sailor suit
Who in clothing 2: boys, hist. clothes
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no

Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least one young blonde boy in a dark sailor suit. Dark collar and stockings. Very long neckline at the front, short collor flap. 2 thicker white stripes. Not sure about the name. I think it’s not Jean Claudio as he was obviously older (*1927). Movie was filmed in 1940 (or 1939). Also other kids in historical clothes. And women in sailor-like dresses.

I didn’t had the time to check the complete movie. First sailor suit scene (outside and from a distance) starting at 15 minutes. Scenes at 18 minutes. Movie setting starts in 1871, scenes pictured are set in 1889. At 22 minutes the setting is in 1890. At 25 minutes it’s 1900 and the end is set in the presence (1940). English title The Heart of a Nation. Directed by Julien Duvivier (“Anna Karenina”, Don Camillo, Poil de carotte (1925) and many more).

Jean Claudio I have on my Alexei Tsarevich and Rasputin list (no pics yet, 1938) and in Les cadets de l’océan (1945, filmed in 1942) as 15 yo (but older looking).

Quite interesting movie, but currently rating 3 for now only.

Ein Geheimnis im Dorf – Schwester und Bruder

Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Has been aired yesterday. Unfortunately I have missed most parts and the complete last 30 minutes. I noticed only one very brief flashback scene (set maybe in the late 70s or 80s) at 12 minutes scene with a young boy in longer buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders (mainly from a distance). Also a 2nd older boy but very briefly (headshot). The younger boy is also being spanked lying on the grass (close-up vies/headshots).

Available on the mediathek but I don’t have the time to check the complete movie at slow speed. I will check some scenes from the end, if I have missed anything, please comment.

One older boy (Enzo Gaier), around 11 yo but probably not in Lederhosen but jeans.

Rating 3 for now only. Typical modern Heimatfilm with crime elements.

Also being aired yesterday: Der Mann, der nach Oma kam.

That movie itself was good and funny, but the boy in Lederhosen too young. Rating 3.

Unknown 16: Soviet film 70s? = Passazhir s ‘Ekvatora’


Soviet film
Year: 1970
Year in film: 1960s ?
Country: Soviet Union
Who in clothing: boy ~13 sailor suits, girls
Who in clothing 2: shorts, speedos, soviet scarves
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: often
Rating:  7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: At least this older boy (probably more boys) in shorts and a white shirt with blue collar (3 stripes) blue basque cap and a red Soviet scarf. Short sleeves with blue stripes as well.

I found a brief clip but don’t know what movie this is from. Most likely a Soviet movie (or maybe from Hungary, CZ or similar). Probably from the (early) 70s. Maybe I even already have an entry. Can someone help here? I’m currently very busy.

Quite interesting. And I like collars flying up. Needs to be rechecked. Maybe this is a TV series? And maybe there are even better scenes and actors?

Rating 5-6 for now.

Thanks Titou! As assumed,  I already had an entry rating 7. 70s and Soviet was right.


Update: Platz an der Halde


Not sure, but I think this is from this movie, currently rating 7(-8) only.

Some boys in different Lederhosen. An older, blonde boy or teen boy in short buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders, a younger boy in smooth finish or nappa Lederhosen (probably with suspenders as well). Also some other, young boys in Lederhosen and shorts.

Very interesting, but there are even better movies in Lederhosen. Color would also be better.

The Chippendiddys


Dancing documentary

Year in film: 1990s
Country: UK
Who in clothing: Sid ~10, sailor suit
Who in clothing 2: boys, other clothes
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low ?
Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: At least Sid Smith in a (long) black sailor suit, a very long blue collar and a white cap. The collar seems to be attached onto the jacket.

I found a very brief clip on one of my recordings. I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie. Maybe the complete group wearing sailor suits as well? But if so, then probably very few scenes.

I haven’t found pics or streaming clips showing that and have to recheck it later, when I have more time. One redhaired boy is very handsome but they are also very thin.

Rating 6 for now for the sailor suit, more for the rest.
