(Les) quatre-cents coups (France, 1959)

Queen of Hearts - (UK, 1989)

I believe this is the title. Pleasant little movie about a boy growing up in the London Italian community. He is about 10 or 11, and wears grey school shorts almost all the time, except when he puts on his suit. There is quite an involved wedding scene. As it was an Italian wedding, you would think they some boys may have worn in shorts. He doesn't complain about his shorts, but does have trouble finding his socks. His best chum is a slightly older red-headed (the British say "ginger") British boy. He only wears longs. It is set around the Lucky Cafe which the family operates. The plot is a bit off beat.

(The) Quest - (Australia, 1985)

Rather disappointing movie. A 14-year old American boy stays with a relative in a rural Australian town. He makes his first girl friend and goes on a rather improbable "quest" to find out what is at the bottom of a mining pit. An Aboriginal legend suggests that fabled monster lives there. Henry Thomas was about 13 when he made this film.

(The) Quiet Man - (US, 19??)

John Wayne made a movie with Masureebm O'Harra called the "Quiet Man". The movie takes place in Ireland and at least one of Wayne's children is also in it. That son plays a boy from the local Irish town and he wears a kilt. The movie's costuming seems pretty accurate, but we are not sure how commonlyb Irish boys wore kilts. No many boys wore short pants which I don't thonk was a very accurate depiction. ary-drama set in black Harlem and is acclaimed as one of the most penetrating studies of juvenile delinquency ever filmed. Some of the boys wear knickers.

(The) Quinns - (US, 1977)

Trials and tribulations of three generations of Irish Americans in the New York City Fire Department. I haven't seen it, but sounds as if some boys may be involved showing clothes in various generations.
