–Comment: Several young boys and teen boys at school. All or almost all in different sailor suits and mainly blue sailor collars. Most collars are short (long neckline at front). One boy in a red sailor collar. Also girls in that class. But not sure if in sailor dresses. Also a spanking scene of the older boy (standing) in long white pants.
Checking for some b&w classics (soon on my bib overalls blog), I found this scene by coincidence on YouTube (titled Prügelstrafe).
The series is available in the great “Große Geschichten” DVD series (“Väter & Söhne” rating 9, Das Klavier (rating 6), Jokehnen (rating 6), Heldenfrühling, Nirgendwo ist Poenichen, Jauche und Levkojen, and several other good series.
There is a 1987 movie with the same title and including some of the scenes of the series, but that one is not a compilation of this series but an independant movie! Based on the 1903 novel “The Riddle of the Sands” by Robert Erskine Childers. There’s also another, British 1979 movie.
I don’t know the complete series, yet, but I assume few or very few scenes. Who knows the complete series and can give more details? Is it worth buying?
Rating 7-8 for now.
