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 Joe Keery in a short, medium blue sailor suit and teen girl Robin, played by Maya Hawke in a blue sailor dress. Pic from the trailer of season 3.

Also previously on my bib overalls blog and maybe soon on my shiny shorts blog. Most shorts might not be shiny. But also swimwear at an outdoor pool.

I assume rather few good scenes in the sailor suits.

For this rating ~2 for now.

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


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



Mary Poppins Returns

Who in clothing 2: boys underwear

Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least blonde Joel Dawson in a short, white sailor suit, light blue collar (2 stripes) and cap, white shorts and stockings, also sitting, red scarf. Also Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins in a green/blue sailor dress underwater. Also the kids in white underwear (short union suit) and other historical clothes. Should be set in the 1930s (like the novel) .

I don’t know the complete movie, yet (new in cinemas Dec 20th). I always prefer the Classics (which is set in the 1910s and I think doesn’t have real sailor suits). Needs to be rechecked. There are also musicals and probably several stage plays.

Also soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~5.

The boy is young. The sailor suits quite unusual. Rating ~5 for now. Pic 2 is from behind the scenes, others from trailer.

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.

Update: Die Powenzbande


After 6 1/2 years, I have briefly rechecked this series. There are some boys in sailor suits (at least 4 in different ones, I didn’t even noticed before, adding tag sailor suits) and other historical clothes and costumes (H-style suspenders but not Lederhosen) and also ladies in sailor-style dresses. But the only notable scene is this big fighting scene in episode 2. Also shirtless in swim wear (same episode). 2 boys also being tied together (standing).

Most collars are wide but short. Some good scenes, but mostly from a distance. There are better movies.

Main entry, still rating 6

Comment: After finding Ulf Schweikhardt in “Der Führerschein” (bedroom blog, rating 4), I found this series. Previously I only had the 1959 movie (b&w, rating 7) and the 2008 movie, rating 3. Raban Bieling.

I have checked the complete series at high speed and the only notable close-up scenes are in ep 9 (pics 1+2, set in 1871) probably showing Kai. Also without the straw hat. Long, light blue stripes suit with a regular, dark blue collar (3 stripes), white dickey unstriped.

Some very few kids including younger boys in the background at a beach in ep. 5 (pic 2, light blue blouse and white collar, set in 1855 ?) and ep 2 (medium blue blouse, dark pants, set in the 1840s ?). But both very briefly running School scenes in ep 10 but none in sailor suits (but other historical clothes). Also women in sailor-style dresses. Nice costumes.

Boys are very young. (Very few) good scenes.

So rating 3 only.

Comment: At least one older teen girl/young lady, maybe Romanian Elina Löwensohn in a medium blue, probably long sailor dress with matching collar and white stripes (very brief scene) and also some more, including younger girls, boys and woman in historical dresses (some with sailor-style collars). Also a boy in bib overalls, other blog, rating 4- (was 5). Many supporting actors, but few good scenes. Most from a distance.

Also on my pigtails blog, rating 4. Some 1890s Western settings and clothes including hats (no entry on my Western blog).

Few good scenes, so rating 2-3 only.

Comment: At least Ingrid Steeger playing a rabbit boy in obviously green colorful patterned cotton shorts with H-style suspenders.

Has been aired yesterday.

Maybe Ingrid Steeger also wore Lederhosen in this series or in Klimbim. Also as toddler boy in Klimbim in bib overalls (entry on my other blog).

Brief clip. Unknown episode.

Rating 2-3 only. (Perfect comedy series).

Happy Easter!
