Update 2: Heidemelodie


During research for pics for my other blogs, I found some larger pics of this very good and rare movie (rating 10, TOP#1, smooth finished Lederhosen).

Pic 2 is new and showing another boy on the left at school. Maybe it’s then same boy pictured in pic 1 (blonde, same shirt). The redhaired boy on the right is also shown at the doctor (pic in the main entry).

Unfortunately still not on DVD. I have to recheck if I have a TV recording. But if so, then most likely not completely.

Main entry, rating 5


In the TV guide there was announced Meine Kindheit… auf dem Schloss (previously called Meine Kindheit… im Schloss), but it is canceld. Lederhosen rating 7.

Comment: 2 boys in historical clothes (pants with suspenders), 1 blonde, one darkhaired. Also girls, teens and grown-ups. The Musical is a special version of A Christmas Story (Charles Dickens) currently shown in Nordhausen.

The ballet group is the Bundesjugendballett Berlin. But not sure if the young kids are also located there. And not sure if they are playing in Nordhausen. Or part of that theatre (Kinderstatisterie).

The kids also decorating cookies at a table for a long time later (also sitting rear view). Musical scene at around 40 minutes (mediathek). A short clip is also on YouTube.

The blond boy reminds me of another boy actor. Not sure who. Louis Hofmann?

Also boys acting in historical clothes including Simon Gipps-Kent (The Tomorrow Peoeple, also check out my bedroom blog). Maybe also some in sailor suits?

Comment: Jean Claudio as Alexei obviously in a sailor suit (I first wasn’t sure if he wore one). Pic 1 from a trailer, pic 2 a publicity pic.

One of the last missing Rasputin and Alexei entry. I haven’t seen the complete movie. Available on VHS and obviously as DVD or digital vid.

Quite interesting, rating 4-5 for now. Starring Harry Baur as Rasputin.

Jean Claudio also appeared in Les cadets de l’océan as 15 yo but older looking sailor and also in another movie I have.

The recent 2 Rasputin movies are still not released. And the remaining 2 others, I still haven’t found.

–Rating: ******
Comment: At least this young, blonde boy in short buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders at the end of ep 2 which has been aired today. Front and rear view while walking. Probably some more boys and men in later episodes?

I wanted to post another Rasputin movie (coming next) but first this airing.

One of the most famous German 80s family series. Also starring grown-up Sascha Hehn. English title: The Black Forest Hospital.

I have to check the later episodes, but obviously few Lederhosen. Most scenes of the grown-ups are boring.

Rating 6 for now.


Update: Ein irres Feeling


This movie is very rare and expensive and currently on YouTube called “Late Lounge Heimkino | Ein irres Feeling” unfortunately with 2 people in front of it and sometimes pausing it. Available as single DVD (42 EUR), VHS or on a compilation DVD, even rare. Starring Karl Dall. Pics 1+2 at ~26 minutes. Another scene inside at ~24 min.

Nice boy with dental braces shirtless in smooth finished or nappa leather with suspenders. But few scenes. Also men in shiny shorts.  Typical 80s comedy film.

Main entry, rating 7
