Comment: Some boys in dark blue short sailor suits, including this boy playing Soccer and hanging upside down (hence the title). Short collar flap, long wide scarf.

Rather few sailor suit scenes. Also other clothes including shorts with and without H-style suspenders, but probably no Lederhosen.

English title: Upside Down. Directed by Stanilaw Jedryka.

Handsome boys, good clothes, interesting movie, so rating ~5-6.

Comment: Canadian David Kaye (“3000 Miles to Graceland”, bib overalls blog rating 6) in a short, beige sailor suit and matching collar with 3 green stripes also sitting on a man’s shoulders. Also a toddler boy in a similar suit. And at least a lady in a sailor dress with white blouse and collar, blue stripes, skirt and scarf and a flat straw hat. Some more (supporting) actors in historical clothes of the 1900s and or 1910s including boys in regular suits.

I only have checked some parts of this movie. Looks like a typical period film. The boy is quite young, though interesting, rather rare sailor suit.

Rating ~3-4 for now only. I don’t like Brad Pitt either. 1 Oscar.

Also at least one girl in bib overalls, soon on my other blog. Maybe some updates here as well.

Briefly checked. Scenes are at ~1h37. There’s also a kid with a red collar, rear view running a bit later. Obviously very few scenes.

Some more great historical clothes, especially of Zac.

Main entry (also updated on my overalls blog, rating 9)

Sunday on German’s Bibel TV.

Next to girls and women, there are also boys and a young man in sailor suits. Including wet scenes at a beach in bathing costumes and sailor suits. Also boys and a man in bib overalls (other blog now rating 9 instead of 7).

Comment: Canadian Mickey Bennett in a long dark (blue) sailor suit with matching dickey and collar. I think a rather short collar flap. Also sitting on a swing and also on a beach in a bathing costume.

19 minutes, silent.

Not that bad. I like classics. I’m still searching for the Chevy chase film “One of the Smiths” (1931) for my overalls blog. And I have to check more movies of him.

Rating ~3 for this.

Comment: I only noticed one boy in a white sailor suit with blue collar and 3 stripes  (pic 2 bottom right). Also some few kids in 1900s or 1910s clothes including straw hats but rather few scenes as well. Mainly grown-ups shown there (ladies). Rating ~2-3 for this boy. I also found a b&w publicity pic with 10 yo Marcel Oktábec (probably the same as in pic 1) in a black or dark sailor suit with a white collar and 2 stripes and also another suit with a lace collar or similar. But obviously few scenes as well.

Also soon on my bedroom blog.

Directed by Ota Koval.

Rating 2-3 only.

Unknown #25 found = The Haunted School (1986)


Searching for some DVD to buy, I found this. It’s The Haunted School. Australia, 8 episodes set in the 1860s.

I want to make an order on Amazon. But it’s too expensive there 18,99. It is just 8,99 from the official manufacturer (minimum order 10 EUR, shipping free) or 10 EUR on ebay (incl shipping). Currently, I won’t order this. Maybe later, maybe used. Or wait for streams.

Comment: At least one young boy (Marcus Hietanen) in at least 2 different sailor suits (blue and white ones). Also other, older boys (and girls and women) in historical 1910s clothes including flat straw hats, different shorts and the like. And also other scenes of interest (like skinny dipping in the sea).

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. But looks interesting. However, this boy is handsome but very young.

English title: The Enchanted Road. Autobiographical novel by Oscar Parland.

Rating ~4-5 for now for the sailor suit scenes. Probably much more for the movie itself.
