Rating:  7/10 ?
Rating: *******
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.


Update: Looking for Miracles


Next to vintage 1930s clothes including bib overalls, a short union suit (underwear), bathing costumes and even a sailor suit, there are also other interesting scenes.

There’s also a caning scene at 38 minutes, so now tagged spanking as well.

I have still not finished rechecking the DVD.

Very handsome Zachary Bennett, but he’s quite young. Nice rear views.

Main entry here rating 3


Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5 and my bedroom blog, rating 7.

Comment: At least this boy, Marko Ratic (1975-2013) in two or more, short sailor suits. Grey and black. Long, dark blue collar, 3 stripes and at the edges two Navy like stars. Many scenes with him in sailor suits. The collar is mainly or only attached or combined to the jackets.

Several interesting scenes like being spanked (no pants on, but the top of the sailor suit), peeing in boots and the like.

English titel: The End of the War, Russian title: Крај рата.

I don’t remember other actors in sailor suits. And the boy is very young.

So for sailor suits, rating 5-6 only. There are better movies.

Comment: One or 2 girls in a sailor dress or sailor-style dress. Boys in shorts and historical clothes. Some interesting scenes like peeing and spanking at school. And sticking tongues at a frozen steel railing.

English title: The Elementary School. Nominated for an Oscar.

Another one from my VHS. Interesting movie. But I only noticed girls in sailor dresses. I don’t remember the complete movie.

Rating 3 for now for sailor dresses. Rating~6-7 for the movie itself.

Comment: At least Marc Poser in a dark (blue) sailor suit, white collar. Obviously mainly in grey (and/or dark green/olive) or similar shorts at the farm.

Another one, I found on one of my old VHS tapes (around 10 minutes left). Some interesting scenes (peeing at a wall at a funeral with another boy, rear view) and opening the rear part of his shorts, showing his grandma his butt, chasing him).

I recognized Angelika Böttiger (on the far right) also appearing later in series Schloss Einstein.

Movie seems to be rare. English title: Childhood. Nice rural setting in Silesia.

Obviously few sailor suit scenes. Also a blonde girl in pigtails, soon on my other blog, rating ~5.

Rating 4-5 for now.

Junges Licht

Clothing occurence: very often
Rating:  9/10 ?
Rating: *********
Comment: Finally – Lederhosen! Oscar Brose in short and tight buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders, also sitting and also cycling. Also some few other boys in Lederhosen, mainly or only without suspenders. At least one in tight, smooth finish Lederhosen. However most boys at school don’t wear Lederhosen but cotton shorts. There’s also at least one brief spanking scene by a woman (mom ?) while standing but he runs away. Pic from the trailer which is at 14 minutes in the movie.

I found this by coincidence on Google, searching for something completely different. I don’t know the complete movie yet and hope for a soon broadcasting. Set in Dortmund. Novel by Ralf Rothmann.

Rating 9-10 for now. Just released on DVD and BD. I think, I can wait some weeks or few months for a broadcasting (or upload).

Update: Almost completely checked. Unfortunately few others and no smooth finished Lederhosen. But almost rating 10. Some scenes are in b&w but are very good, either.


Update: Our Gang


After finding boys (and girls) in pigtails (and pulling pigtails) and some more boys wearing bib overalls and also Western scenes and interesting bedroom scenes, I also found some more sailor suit scenes and even spanking scenes. So something for all my 5 blogs.

Pic 1 showing twins Charles and Raymond (Ray) DeBriac as Scrappy and Sissy in white sailor suits including white collars and rather short dark pants in the movie “Every Man For Himself (1924)”. Unfortunately the image quality of this early film is quite bad, but there are also some close-ups.

Pic 2 is from “Shrimps For a Day” (1934) I think it’s Spanky. Dark blue, regular sailor collar, 3 stripes.

There’s a spanking scenes of a boy in a night shirt by a man (dad ?) over his lap in “When the Wind Blows (1930)”. The nightshirt is lifted up but that’s not directly shown.

Unfortunately most kids are very young. Also of course more historic clothes and costumes (for more infos and pics visit my overalls blog). Some episodes were also colorized.





Looking for Miracles

Country: CDN
Who in clothing: boy ~9, sailor suit
Who in clothing 2: boys overalls, underwear
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Clothing occurence: very low *
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this boy in a blue sailor suit, white blouse and cap. Also some boys in bib overalls (overalls blog rating 5 only). Also other boys in historical clothes including pants with suspenders, shorts, loincloths and a short union suit. Good bedroom scenes (rating 7).

Some very good scenes and a handsome boy actor Zachary Bennett. Probably much underrated. Currently, I don’t have the time to recheck the complete movie at slow speed. But obviously very few or only one sailor suit scene.

I like the Sullivan movies and series, especially Wind at My Back.

For the sailor suit scene rating 3-4 for now only.

Also note my new 5th blog about pigtails in movies (including boys).


Update: I’ve started to watch the DVD again. There’s a spanking scene (with a stick) at 38 min previously missing this tag.

Unknown 17: Schinkenklopfer


I recently found this interesting clip showing boys in longer Lederhosen (H-style suspenders) and other traditional clothes (but not hats) dancing Schuhplattler (Gaudiplattler) and slapping each other on their bottoms. Some girls watching it. Reminds me of St. Florian Sängerknaben in 2011.

I’m not sure if this was being broadcasted (documentary ?) or is just a private recording. Probably a private clip as there’s no broadcasting logo (or must be much older).

Perfect introduction to the upcoming Oktoberfest this Saturday.

Rating 6-7.

Rating: ***
Comment: Has been aired yesterday. Unfortunately I have missed most parts and the complete last 30 minutes. I noticed only one very brief flashback scene (set maybe in the late 70s or 80s) at 12 minutes scene with a young boy in longer buckskin Lederhosen with H-style suspenders (mainly from a distance). Also a 2nd older boy but very briefly (headshot). The younger boy is also being spanked lying on the grass (close-up vies/headshots).

Available on the mediathek but I don’t have the time to check the complete movie at slow speed. I will check some scenes from the end, if I have missed anything, please comment.

One older boy (Enzo Gaier), around 11 yo but probably not in Lederhosen but jeans.

Rating 3 for now only. Typical modern Heimatfilm with crime elements.

Also being aired yesterday: Der Mann, der nach Oma kam.

That movie itself was good and funny, but the boy in Lederhosen too young. Rating 3.
