Clothing occurence: medium-
Rating:  7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Several Pioneer boys and I think some girls (mainly in pigtails) in Lederhosen,some with H-style suspenders. Few are probably smooth finished leather including the boy with the red shirt. Some good rear views while climbing. Some shorts, however, are more likely cotton.

52 minutes. Long scenes at least at around 20-30 minutes. I only have checked it at high speed. English title: Blue Bandanas in the Summer Wind.

Rating 7 for now.

Update: Schau in meine Welt!


I now have rechecked Ep 187 “Ludwig, der Schuhplattler” (rating 6) and made some pics (previously no pics).

Many boys and men in Lederhosen at the beginning (but mainly from a distance). I think main character Ludwig on front during a competition in pic 2.

Later some boys dancing Schuhplattler and dancing with girls. Also one younger, blonde boy (red/ white checkered shirt). Mainly teen boys, some also sitting.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating 6. Main entry

Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least one young girl in a short, blue sailor dress (or suit) with a long, white collar and 2 red stripes and Navy-like stars on the edge of the flap.

I only have checked this briefly. Part 1 “A Circle of Children” is much better (boys including Matthew Labyorteaux shirtless in swimwear, shiny shorts blog rating 8).

Rating 3 for this sailor suit. Late, rare setting.



Das fliegende Klassenzimmer (1973)

Country: Germany

Who in clothing 2: shorts, speedos
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Clothing occurence: very low
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least one younger, blonde boy, running wet in Lederhosen without suspenders. Very brief flashback scene at 44 minutes when Fuchsberger telling his story, maybe set in the 1920s. Also running, rear view (from a distance). And several 70s boys in shorts, speedo and other colorful 1970s clothes.

Has been aired yesterday. I missed some parts at the beginning and only watched until the wig scene at 1h00. Young boy Ulli in blonde pigtails (pigtails blog rating 7).

I don’t like at all the 70s and the boys in wild, medium long haircuts. Sebastian is quite handsome but most others aren’t. So I haven’t watched the complete movie for years.

Very famous movie and often rebroadcasted. I also have the 1954 b&w movie (rating 4, Lederhosen and rating 8 on my pigtails blog) and the 2nd, 2003 remake (rating 2, sailor suits Thomaner choir boys).

Brief Lederhosen scene rating 2-3. Movie rating 1.



The Adventures of Black Beauty (1972)


Family series, 52 ep
Year: 1972
Year in film: 1870s ?
Country: UK
Who in clothing: Kevin ~13, knickers
Who in clothing 2: other hist. cl.
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: often
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Sorry, a bit off topic as I’m running out of Lederhosen movies. At least historical clothes in or around the 1870s. Roderick Shaw (1958-1996) in knickers and a vest (also other pants including beige and grey. Long?) and teen girls and women in dresses, maybe sailor-style and also straw hats. Also other boys and girls.

I don’t know/remember the complete series. Looks a bit old fashioned and mainly with and for teen girls and horses.

Maybe not bad for the plot and these days. Pic from s1e1.

Rating 3-4 (as off topic).


Update: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory


Next to the fat boy 12 yo Augustus in Bavarian clothes (shorts or Lederhosen, rating 3) and 11 yo Mike in Western clothes (Western blog rating 5), there’s also 13 yo Denise Nickerson as Violet in a red sailor dress. Red collar and dickey and one dark blue stripe and scarf.

I assume very few scenes, maybe only this one. This is on a TV within the movie.

I have seen this movie many years ago but have to recheck it completetly.

Famous movie, especially after Gene Wilder died, but I prefer the 2005 remake starring Johnny Depp.

Main entry here, rating 3 at


Die rote Zora und ihre Bande (=unknown 25 ?)


Adventure mini series, 13 ep
Year: 1979
Year in film: 1930s
Country: YU, D, CH
Who in clothing: Branko ~12, others shorts
Who in clothing 2: boys other hist. cl.
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Clothing occurence: low
Rating:  5/10 *
Rating: *****
Comment: Some orphans in 1930s clothes, but mainly shirts and long pants. Historical clothes mainly of some students in ep. 5, knickers, short bow ties, red caps. Some boys in shorts. Best is of course 12 yo Branko (shirtless and wet in black shorts, shiny shorts blog rating 6). Setting, clothes, haircuts and some actors look very similar to my unknown movie #25. I have checked the complete series at high speed, but couldn’t find the scenes from my pics. Can someone confirm if it’s it or isn’t?

Also some other interesting scenes. One man stole the (long) pants of a boy at a hayloft. And 2 boys shirtless sharing one bed (soon on my bedroom blog, rating 9).

The 2008 movie remake starring Mario Adorf is very poor.

No Lederhosen, no sailor suits in this series. Quite boring, except for Branko. (Main character is a teen girl).

So rating 4-5 for the historical clothes.

Comment: One or 2 girls in a sailor dress or sailor-style dress. Boys in shorts and historical clothes. Some interesting scenes like peeing and spanking at school. And sticking tongues at a frozen steel railing.

English title: The Elementary School. Nominated for an Oscar.

Another one from my VHS. Interesting movie. But I only noticed girls in sailor dresses. I don’t remember the complete movie.

Rating 3 for now for sailor dresses. Rating~6-7 for the movie itself.

Comment: Some (teen) boys in historical clothes? Probably both pics from the same series or movie.

Recorded maybe in 2004 but could be recorded up to 2007 or even in the 1990s. Production could be much earlier. Also not sure of the time setting. Note, that there is no broadcaster’s logo. And the haircuts are quite long. Maybe a 1980s production?

Looks somehow Canadian (or Australian to me).

I only found these 2 screenshots (made in 2011). I haven’t found it on my VHS tapes, yet.

The boy in pic 2 looks a bit like Derrick Jones (“Matt and Jenny”). I can’t say much more. Who knows this title?

Very similar is “Die rote Zora und ihre Bande” (1979 series, rating 5).

Comment: I think some young girls in sailor dresses, short white collar and at least one young boy at the end in a short, dark (blue) suit but obviously not with a sailor collar.

I almost forgot this and previously just had the 1995 color remake (teen girls, rating 2).

I have checked it briefly, long time ago and could find clips of better quality.

Rating 2-3 for now only.
