Comment: One boy in a short, white sailor suit with a rare, dark blue collar, open at front, no scarf, 4 thin stripes, large and long collar flap. Also another boy in a dark blue suit with matching collar (brief scene). Also a woman in a green sailor dress with matching collar and girls in similar brown clothes and straw hats.

Interesting series. Nice rural and early setting.

I don’t know all episodes, but obviously only rather few scenes in few episodes.

Rating ~5.



Update: Die Legende von Paul und Paula


I still haven’t seen the complete movie but found some other pics from short clips.

Most boys obviously wore regular shorts and the boy wearing Lederhosen is very young (pic 1 being carried).

Pic 2 showing kids including girls in historical costumes. Also 2 kids wearing sailor collars (in the middle, one in a white collar with red stripes and one in a blue collar).

I hope for a soon broadcasting.

Main entry, currently rating 3

–Rating: ****
Comment: Pic from yesterday’s s1e1 Berge auf Probe. At least 2 boys and some men in longer, buckskin Lederhosen at the beginning. I think another very brief scene (bird’s eye) of a little boy near the end.

I missed some few parts but have almost seen the complete movie. Nothing more of interest in this 1st episode.

The movie itself wasn’t very good either. Starring Harald Krassnitzer.

Episode 2 today in Austria and on Friday in Germany.

Previously rating 5, now rather 3-4 for now.


Als Urgroßmutter noch ein Mädchen war

Country: Germany
Who in clothing: boys ~8-10 ?
Who in clothing 2:
Available on DVD: yes *
I own: no
Clothing occurence: medium- ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
–Rating: *****
Comment: Some boys in short and long buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders. One might be nappa or smooth finished leather. 18 minutes, other sources say 12 minutes. For grades 1-4. Also scenes at school (including girl in pigtails). First I thought of a 1900s setting (Great grandmother) but obviously it’s “just” the 1950s. Also shirtless scenes swimming in shorts.

I found a trailer by coincidence on YouTube and don’t know the complete movie.

Available on DVD but expensive and for schools only.

Seems interesting. No entry on IMDb.

Rating at least 5-6.

Comment: Comedy duet “Vater und Sohn” from Neuhausen played by Ronald Witt and his son Justin both in Lederhosen, also sitting. The Lederhosen of the son are much longer and have H-style suspenders (partly hidden under the gingerbread hearts). Mr. Witt is the president of the Narrenbund Neuhausen and also a politician. Justin also was “Child Prince” one or two years ago.

Handsome boy but here with a chicken hat.

Has been aired yesterday (live broadcast). Also available on the mediathek.

Rating ~5-6.

Comment: Several young boys in long, dark blue Navy/ sailor suits, mostly with large and wide collars in episode: Zwei Kadetten aus Kronstadt. Main characters are 12 yo Sascha and Mischa.

Most collars are medium blue. Some few boys in rather light blue collars including the blonde boy who also has a long neckline. Also nice bunk beds and school scenes.

Intersting series. I also have the episode “Muridi aus Zürich” on my shiny shorts blog (ratng 8).

For the sailor suits rating ~5-6. I like large collars.

–Rating: *****
Comment: One boy in buckskin Lederhosen without suspenders. At least 2 rather brief scenes. Also walking in the red shirt without the jacket.

Nice, late and modern DEFA movie. Good setting at a summer camp, including wooden bunk beds, but mainly girls are shown.

One of the better DEFA movies but as said few Lederhosen scenes.

So rating 5 only. Movie itself higher.

Comment: At least one of the boys (11, 13, 16 yo) in buckskin Lederhosen, probably 13 yo Lutz Moik (“Das kalte Herz”, “Meine Herren Söhne”). I think rather few (good) scenes. Also sitting.

Also other scenes of interest like a bathtub scene and boys in pajamas.

Rating 4 for now only.
