Comment: Several boys of Moscow dancing in long sailor suits, white blouse, blue collar with 3 white stripes, rather short collar flaps and black pants. Some good scenes and some handsome, blonde boys.

Rating ~5-6 for this one.

Comment: At least 2 boys in sailor suits. Pic 1 is a fighting scenes I think with Robert Coogan with a loose sailor collar, 2 stripes, short flap.

Pic 2 showing later a boy in a dark sailor suit, matching collar (3 stripes) and a military hat. I think a brief scene and don’t know his name.

Also boys in bib overalls, other blog rating 4.

For the sailor suits rating 3-4 only. Movie itself not much more. I don’t like much Jackie Cooper.

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.

Comment: At least 3 boys and 2 girls in long Navy or sailor suits on a stage. Dark blue or black including the scarves and white sailor’s caps. Also some more kids in grey appearing suits. Girls wearing pants as well.

Handsome kids and guest stars, not just the regular cast. Actors include Frank Ward ~12yo and Eleanor Taylor. Robert Blake in a suit as well. Most kids are uncredited.

Not bad but 11 minutes only. So rating ~4.

Rennsteiglied (Thüringer Folklore Tanzensemble Rudolstadt), Herbert Roth on TV

rennsteiglied-rudolstadt

On Sunday on MDR: “Legenden – Ein Abend für Herbert Roth”. I already have an entry of this 2017 documentary, aired in the series Damals war’s, ep 4.

/2017/01/06/von-der-wartburg-bis-zur-saale-update-rennsteiglied/

During research, I found this clip on YouTube called “Rennsteiglied – Traditional German Dance” by Thuiringer.

Boys and mainly girls in buckskin Lederhosen. Also sitting on each other. He also have some more clips including Watschnplattler and butt slapping (boys and girls hitting each other) “Traditional German Dance – Bavarian Folk Dance”. Lederhosen with and without suspenders.

Comment: And another Our Gang film, this time an older, silent movie.

Obviously Jackie Condon (pic 1) in a dark (blue) sailor suit and large white scarf. Also freckled Jay R. Smith in a dark sailor suit and dark Navy collar and white sailor’s cap. Of course some others in historical clothes and later in nice large string ties.

Rather few good scenes. Image quality of these early movies is quite poor.

So rating ~3 only.

Comment: At least a darkhaired girl in a light blue sailor dress with matching collar and dickey. 1 white stripe and scarf. Also a man in bib overalls. Unknown episode. Maybe “The Land, the Sea, the Children There”. (No entry on IMDb) with a 10 yo Sandra with 4 siblings. Aired in 1979. Or maybe “Westward Wagons” produced in 1973 and 1870s setting (no entry on IMDb) or s1e7 (1976) with 11 yo Lara Berk as Debbie. Obviously not s1e1 “Runaway to Glory” (1986) with Molly and granddad (with a straw hat, depicting on top of the VHS).

By coincidence, I found a VHS cover, depicting the girl and kids from other episodes.

I can’t say much more. Some infos on worldcat.org.

Episode “Umbrella Jack” recently updated on my bib overalls blog and added to my bedroom blog, next infos about other episodes. Also especially of interest an Amish boy in the awarded episode “Joshua’s Confusion”  (no entry on IMDb of that one). Other episodes are set in the 1980s and 1930s. And I think one in the 12th and maybe one in the 19th century.

Update: Road to Avonlea – (season 1 on TV)

roadtoavonlea-s7broadtoavonlea-1992

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).

Pics 1+4 from season 7, pic 2 from a 1992 making of (is this the same series ?), pic 3 from s6e2. Also soon on my pigtails blog. Another interesting version is the 1975 BBC series Anne of Avonlea (at least nice historical clothes and pigtails).

Main entry here, currently rating 4 for the girl’s sailor suits

Comment: Jay R. Smith in a short sailor suit including striped dickey and short collar flap. But pants and cap don’t match the blouse. Also little Wheezer in a sailor suit and straw hat. Unknown colors. Might be (partly) green? Wheezer’s collar maybe light blue?
