Unknown #9 – pic found


I couldn’t find something for my shiny shorts blog neither on my hard disks nor on backup discs, so I searched my prints for that, and by coincidence found a tiny pic of my unknown Italian movie. No more pics (yet) and nothing more shown.

It’s the boy on the right dropping down his pants.

It proves, that I have (or had) at least some parts of the movie. One problem is, that my VHS recorder is defective. Another is, that I often deleted major parts of movies and sometimes haven’t written the title.

As I have a print, I must have a digital pic and maybe a clip as well. But I haven’t found it, although I often search them. I have some cheap DVDr and CDr that can’t be read anymore. And it’s also possible that I have deleted it (the clip on HD or VHS) unintentionally.

So, I try to recheck all my backups and notes on my VHS cassettes for any hints but that will take a while. Maybe I have to buy a VHS player. Or maybe someone recognizes the pic.


Update: The Seven Little Foys


Next to an 8 yo girl, I also found this very young boy in a rare, light brown sailor suit including matching (angled) collar (2 white stripes) and scarf. Very brief scene set in around 1913 or maybe some years earlier.

Still rating 6 for the movie (but much fewer for the sailor suits).

Quite good and funny movie. Also with some other historical clothes, but rather few good scenes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (13 yo getting spanked, and 2 younger boys), rating 6 as well.

Comment: At least 3 boys in rare short Lederhosen. H-style suspenders. One is regular buckskin. One is black or other dark color (5 yo), one is beige or other light color, maybe even yellow? Can’t say as the series is b&w.

Another very interesting, even better East German Lederhosen series. Set on a farm in the 1970s. 3 generations under one roof.

No scenes of interest in the trailer. Some large pics are here


Rating 5-6 for now. Kids are quite young. Maybe more scenes of interest? One girl in shortalls (or Lederhosen) or similar.

Comment: I think at least one young boy in Lederhosen or other pants in H-style suspenders, maybe nappa leather? Probably rather few scenes. Also boys and girls in sports clothes (short shorts, mainl dark blue and also red) and also swimming scenes (shirtless boy, probably in speedos).

Sorry, currently no pics.

Few scenes, young kids. So rating 3 for now only. There are better movies.

I hope for a soon broadcasting. 72 minutes. Starring Gojko Mitic.

Comment: First a girl with very long and dark pigtails, probably María Clara Fernández de Loaysa in a short, dark blue sailor dress. Dark blue collar. 3 thin stripes. Long collar flap. She opened up the ribbon of the scarf and showing her bra in front of an old man. Pigtail blog rating 5. Also partly plaiting the braid (by her mom ?) is shown. Most scenes are flashback scenes set in 1936.

And some few boys at the end at 1h28 in sailor suits. At least 3 boys in white sailor collars. Also note the boy in a completetly white collar on pic 1 behind the other boy. Most collars are short.

Very interesting and controversial movie. I almost haven’t seen the boys and found the girl in the sailor dress after posting it on my other blog.

Not bad, but unfortunatley few good scenes of the boys. And in the classroom it’s very dark. Later when eating it’s not dark, but few scenes and mainly from a distance.

Rating 6-7.


Awantura o Basie (1995)

Clothing occurence: medium-
Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: Several older girls / teen girls in dark blue sailor-like dresses or school uniforms. Rectangled collar, very short collar flaps on the rear. Also later some few sailors in long white suits (blue collar).

I haven’t seen the complete movie/series. This is a remake, also made into a 1997 series. English title: Argument About Basia. Originat title: Awantura o Basię.

The 1959 b&w movie obviously has one or more younger girls in real white collars. Probably even much better, but I have to check this one. I think there are also boys! At least one in a dark (blue) short suit. (Coming soon).

1936 novel by Kornel Makuszynski (Kornel Makuszyński). I also have 2 other movies based on his novels, also set in the 1930s (rating up to 4 f/m).

I don’t know of any boys in here.

So rating 2 only for these older girls in short collars.

Update 3: Unknown #9 – La Storia (1986)


I have now checked this mini series completetly, but it’s not the movie with the stairs I hoped for. (Or I have missed that scene but that is very unlikely). The stairs are very similar.

In fact only one or 2 very brief scenes of interest. One teen boy swimming shirtless in tighty whiteys (front view only, starting at 44 minutes on disc 3). And 6 yo Usepping peeing in his pants. Some scenes at school in school uniforms. Stripes on the sleeves but no sailor suits. Even no interesting scenes of men in uniforms. 1 hour is set 6 years earlier.

Image quality is partly a bit poor (grainy, running stripes, maybe although perhaps remastered) but disc 3 is OK.

So the search continues.


Update 2: You Can’t Do That on Television


I have recently checked some episode for my overalls blog (nothing new found) but some boys in sailor suits.

Pic 1 is from a YouTube clip called “The Worst of You Can’t Do That on Television”. Not sure if this is one of the 2 official “Worst of”, or just a personal one. So not sure about the episode title. A boy (I don’t remember his name) in a short white sailor suit, including short, white pants and a white collar (what is quite rare). Red scarf and stripes. Also he or another boy shirtless undressing.

Pic 2 showing another boy (I think Amyas Godfrey) in a white sailor suit but with a blue collar as “Today’s Child” in ep 111 Adoption (1987). Both no dickeys. Pic 2 long neckline at the front so obviously a very long collar flap.



Please also note that “La pietra di Marco Polo” (unknown 11 with the shirtless boy) is now finally on DVD.

Please also note my new shiny shorts blog.


Historical clothes partly also on my new pigtails blog.


Update 2: Unknown #9 – La Storia (1986)


I’m still not sure if I mix up 2 (or 3) different movies, but soon we’ll know for sure, as I’ve ordered the DVD “La Storia (1986)” aka History (directed by Luigi Comencini). Probably Italian language only and no subtitles?

I found the German phrase “zu den Schwulen ?” said by Useppe (pictured) in the novel online and it’s at least one movie, I’ve seen these days and (also) looking for. And watching some of the pics showing the teen boys, it’s very good possible, that it also includes the described stone stairs scene (maybe for 70 %) although I don’t remember a 1940s setting.

After a long break I’ve continued checking all Italian movies backwards in the Italian database, (now at 1976) and still no luck. (No much other new movies of interest either). Can’t be earlier than aired/made in the mid 60s as the movie is definitely in color. Unfortunately fewer and fewer descriptions of the movies. The 3rd movie I’m thinking of, is most likely earlier and French, with mainly washy green landscapes.

Quite expensive. Will take around 2 weeks to receive, then more infos.

Anyway an interesting movie. And at least historical clothes.


Update 2: Chiquititas Brasil (1997)


Some more sailor suit scenes later in this series.

Pic 1 from video# 510 (season 4) showing a girl in a white sailor dress, dark blue skirt and splitted blue collar, what is quite rare. On the right a boy in a dark blue shirt, white, obviously long pants and white collar. One thick stripe on each.

Pic 2 same actors sitting in video # 511.
