Info 75: Last post (or maybe not)


In case someone still might haven't noticed my moving to Wordpress (maybe someone who only hunts for pics) I created this post with a pic.

Wordpress has also some disadvantages and maybe bugs (like no thumbnails on blog feeds, for more experiences and important features (incl. commenting and rating) see there).

I try it for about 2 weeks and maybe come back, but I don't think I will.

The Google Feeder who also acts in my blog list showing older posts which I updated (like my A-Z list wich I update after each post) as new posts and not on top (at least once) and not showing at all the previous new post. This should be a feature and not a bug as the content is new to the Feeder.
I try to prevent this by updating first the old post.

I created feeds here for my new blogs and this old blog will still have interesting weekly top voted post stats (as well as the new one).

THIS BLOG NOW CONTINUES ON WORDPRESS

As my other blog I move to Wordpress

http://sailorsuitsandlederhosenfilmblog.wordpress.com/

(still under construction)

For more infos see my other blog


This blog remains, but will no longer be updated.


Please update your links.

Info 73: Blog domain country changed

Blogger/Google changed obviously all non-US blogspot blogs (without noticing the blog owners) and removed the .com from the blog and added the domain suffix of the specific country domain (like .de).

I was just wondering why I don't have the pencil symbol anymore for some days which allows quick editing posts.
I think there is a country redirect, but not sure if all the links are and will be working for all my readers.

I'm not sure if I should rename my blogs again. I hope that it will work.
No idea why Google acting like this. Probably due to the recently changed TOS and/or copyright issues of each countries. Maybe also because of SOPA.


If you can't find my blogs for a couple of days, please be patient and try again later.

-Rating:  4/10 ?

-Comment: Shirley Temple (pictured left in the middle) and a lot of other (teen) girls in white sailor dresses, dark blue skirts and collars. No stripes. I have also seen a lobby card with a teen girls in a completely white sailor dress, blue collar and stripes.

Another Shirley Temple movie with her in a sailor dress. But here also with lots of teen girls. 72 minutes b&w or colorized version. Obviously not into Public Domain, at least not on archive.org.

I don't know/don't remember this complete movie and have to check it for other actors/scenes. But obviously rather few sailor dress scenes.

Famous song "Be optimistic", also title of YouTube clips. Also starring George Murphy, Jimmy Durante and Jane Darwell. I also have other movies with Temple (try blog search with Shirley). At least one to come.

Rating 3-4 for now.

Die Mädels vom Immenhof



Heimatfilm starring Heidi Brühl
-Year: 1955
-Year in film: 1954
-Country: Germany
-Who in clothing: girl Dick 15 ys, other girl Lederhosen
-Who in clothing 2: 2 boys in Lederhosen, shorts, speedos, sailor dress
-Available on DVD: yes
-I own: yes, TV recording
-Clothing occurence: often *
-Rating:  9/10      
-Rating: *********
-Comment: I think this is Angelika Meissner as main character in buckskin Lederhosen (without suspenders, sometimes with black rubber boots, pic top right), also another girl in Lederhosen (pic bottom left, same as top left on left), and 2 boys in Lederhosen with suspenders (one teen one preteen). Other teen boy in shorts. Both boys and the teen girl undressing Lederhosen (swimwear underneath). Youngest boy ~10 ys in medium blue speedo (top left 2nd from left), teen boy in white/colorful speedo (no Lederhosen, top right). Also Brühl in a rare blue sailor dress, blue collar, red white striped scarf (pictured). Also a teen boy in white riding pants/breeches.

Also riding in Lederhosen (but no close up scenes), farm work (teen boy shirtless), hay scenes (close up of bottom of teen girl).

I heard of Immenhof before, but didn't know of (boys and even girls) in Lederhosen. There are also at least 4 sequels + a TV series (which I all have to check as well).

Very good movie with ranch content. It's a teen Heimatfilm/family movie, drama. The first, I noticed with undressing scenes (boys+girls), but swimwear underneath. But rather few good scenes of the boys.
So there are better (real) Heimatfilms. But maybe one of the best with girls in Lederhosen.
No men in Lederhosen, no Schuhplattler, no women in Lederhosen.

I have to watch it again more carefully to check their names and other scenes.
Rating 8-9.




Kon belyy



Biography. TV series 10 ep.
-Year: 1993
-Year in film: 1916/7
-Country: Russia
-Who in clothing: Aleksei ~11 ys, sailor suit
-Who in clothing 2: uniforms, sailor
-Available on DVD: yes
-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: very low ?
-Rating:  2/10      
-Rating: **
-Comment: Aleksei Dovbysh as Tsarevich Aleksei (pictured) in a white sailor suit, blue collar, striped dickey. Long black pants. Also some real sailors and of course uniforms.

I have only checked some parts of this series, but I only noticed very few sailor suit scenes and few scenes of the Prince. Probably the worst Alexei fim/series, though might be authentic. But I don't like this at all. Lot of war and revolution scenes (Civil War).

Film aka "White Horse", Russian title "Конь белый". 550 min.
Rating 2 fow now.
That's the last Alexei entry for now. There are some more clips and slideshows, but without IMDb entry. Like "Tsarevich Alexei Romanov of Russia: The Story of My Life" and also authentic vids of the real Prince. Others, most b&w I couldn't find on the web.
For other Aleksei movies use the blog search "Aleksei".

Info 72: "First Class" Boy. Royal Navy etc



Some days ago I tried some new search terms like navy boy and found this pic. It pictures (on top) John Travers Cornwell (1900-1916) Boy, First Class, Royal Navy. He was wounded in action on 31st May 1916 and died 2 days later. Pic taken from (more infos there about his honours) at northeastmedals.co.uk.

Interesting big collar showing Boris Pasternak (pic below on right with his brother in 1898), author of Doctor Zhivago.


Also 3 more color/colorized pics on my PD album and one more b/w PD (all sailor suits).
There are lots of different search terms (on each language).
In English e.g. sailor costume, marine suit, little seaman; on German even more, like Marineanzug, Seemannskostüm, Matrosenkragen, Kieler Kragen, Matrosenkleidung, Matrosenbekleidung etc. And boy is in German Knabe or Junge, but Junge mans also young.
But most of all, as it was very common clothing it isn't even specified, so you better look for all vintage pics (vids or films).

Another interesting search term is "sea scouts". I found a pic with a group of boys and girls in white sailor suits via Google image search on flickr/flickriver, but I can't find this right now. Below a Greeting card of the 1910s or earlier.
