Comment: One young uncredited boy in traditional clothing (together with a girl). The short pants appear to be of soft buckskin leather. Also rear view while walking but one brief scene near the beginning only. Lederhosen have no decorations and no suspenders (at least not shown, maybe below the shirt but I don’t think so). Also some few older men in real Lederhosen and bib overalls.

Had been aired yesterday. I previously just had an entry of the 1956 version (rating 2 as well).


The plot is quite good and exciting with a mean Halmer, also starring Suzanne von Borsody and Heikko Deutschmann. Also starring an older teen girl and teen boy, but not in traditional clothes.

Typical modern Heimatfilm with alpine landscape setting and much drama. Novel by Ludwig Anzengruber (1839-1889) but now in a modern setting like the 50s movie.

Very brief scene and young boy, so rating 2 only. At least another Heimatfilm and Lederhosen entry. The movie itself is a bit better, but also nothing special (rating 3-4). There are lots of modern Heimatfilms.
