Comment: At least one young blonde boy in a dark sailor suit. Dark collar and stockings. Very long neckline at the front, short collor flap. 2 thicker white stripes. Not sure about the name. I think it’s not Jean Claudio as he was obviously older (*1927). Movie was filmed in 1940 (or 1939). Also other kids in historical clothes. And women in sailor-like dresses.

I didn’t had the time to check the complete movie. First sailor suit scene (outside and from a distance) starting at 15 minutes. Scenes at 18 minutes. Movie setting starts in 1871, scenes pictured are set in 1889. At 22 minutes the setting is in 1890. At 25 minutes it’s 1900 and the end is set in the presence (1940). English title The Heart of a Nation. Directed by Julien Duvivier (“Anna Karenina”, Don Camillo, Poil de carotte (1925) and many more).

Jean Claudio I have on my Alexei Tsarevich and Rasputin list (no pics yet, 1938) and in Les cadets de l’océan (1945, filmed in 1942) as 15 yo (but older looking).

Quite interesting movie, but currently rating 3 for now only.
