Also a boy (George Ward aka George Warde) in sailor suit, other blog, rating 3.

Rather few scenes with him. Nice collar, though.

Rating ~3-4.

Unknown 29 = Großer Ring mit Außenschleife

grosserringmitaussenschleifegrosserringmitaussenschleife3

The recent unknown movie is called “Großer Ring mit Außenschleife”. Thanks very much Michael!

Unfortunately rather few scenes at the beginning but great scenes, especially rear views including close-ups. Also sitting, but from a distance behind the table.

The 2 brothers are Christian Böttcher and Rolf Bogus, I think the boy in Lederhosen is Rolf Bogus (“Till, der Junge von nebenan”).

Comment: One boy, probably Jackie Williams in a sailor suit, long pants with suspenders, short blue collar flap and a green cap.

Also one boy in bib overalls (soon on my other blog) and boys in Cowboy and Indians costumes at the beginning.

Interesting and not bad, but for the brief scenes rating 3-4 only.

Unknown 29: B&w smooth finished Lederhosen

unknown-leder

I found this pic, but I don’t know from what movie (or series) this is. Obviously 1950s or 1960s, looks like (West) Berlin to me. Or maybe East German.

Can anybody help?

Nice, larger, smooth finished Lederhosen with a belt. No suspenders. Blond boy.

Rating ~8-9 for now.

Update: The movie is called: Großer Ring mit Außenschleife.

I own: no
Clothing occurence: medium- ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
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.

Comment: At least Thomas Ohrner in at least 3 different suits and I think also Lederhosen with H-style suspenders. Not sure about the length and not sure about sailor suits but I think similar historical clothes. Sorry, currently no better pics.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. Maybe this is even worth buying.

Very interesting. Rating ~5-6 for now but unsure.

There’s also a 1933 b&w version, which is also of interest and of course Burning Secret (1988) rating 8. Novel by Stefan Zweig, which I also have read some time ago. Directed by Wilm ten Haaf who also directed Das Haus der Krokodile.

Who in clothing 2: boy ~9 Lederhosen, sailor suit ?, shorts
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: I never heard of this US remake until I found Bryan Russell (Emil here) in “The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin” (Western blog rating 3). Pic from the trailer. Sorry, currently no better pics. At least one blonde boy in rather short, grey, buckskin Lederhosen with suspenders (sometimes under a pullover). Maybe more (supporting) actors?

I don’t know the complete movie, yet, but there’s at least one teen boy in a traditional, dark brown alpine jacket and a green Tyrolean hat. Most boys in shorts including longer, light grey ones and dark blue. At least in a 2013 London stage play also one boy in a dark sailor suit or sailor-style jacket.

Some handsome, also blonde boys, but I have to watch the complete movie first. The 1954 and the 1931 versions are probably much better (both rating 5).

Rating ~4 for now only.

Comment: Freckled Mickey Daniels in a “Little Lord Fauntleroy suit” with a lace collar or similar. Very long, white tie, scarf or similar (longer than assumed by the pic). Also other kids in historical clothes or costumes.

Also recently some entries on my bib overalls blog. Mickey Daniels often wore overalls.

I have ordered one Our Gang DVD of early silent movies. More infos on my other blog. Maybe some more posts here to come as well.

Silent. 20 minutes.

Rating ~3. No real sailor suits which would be regular clothes then. But mainly rather costumes.
