Comment: Several choir boys in a large dorm with typical simple 1950s metal beds.

I think, according to the plot this should be the Vienna Boys Choir (Wiener Sängerknaben), but credited as Mozart Sängerknaben. Probably only dubbed.

Few good scenes and not even Lederhosen (nor sailor suits).

Also on my bib overalls blog (woman, rating 2).

Quite poor movie and not on DVD either.

For the “bedroom” rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Kieran Culkin (Biddle, right bed) and film brother Erik von Detten, both 13 yo but Kieran is younger looking, sharing this 1950s wooden farm bedroom.

Very interesting ranch movie. I like Culkin, but not von Detten.

Also on my Western blog, rating 7 and soon on my pigtails blog.

For bedroom scenes rating 7-8 for now. Needs to be fully rechecked.

Comment: One boy, I think Luke Ward Wilkinson (not sure, maybe Jack Montgomery ?) alone in this nice, colorful room. The setting is, I think in the 1910s, so very colorful for this early time.

I only have checked this briefly.  Award winning picture book (1995) by Susan Wjciechowski

Also on my bib overalls blog, few scenes, rating 3.

For this bedroom, rating 4-5.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~7.

Rating: 6/10 ?

Comment: By coincidence another hospital TV series which is currently being aired on BibelTV. Both pics from s1e5 (1993) with a handsome boy wearing an ear ring.

There are typical hospital beds and small rooms, but also strange, older looking metal beds (for younger kids ? in a dorm)

Interesting series, but also with older teen boys and I only have seen this episode.

For now, rating 6-7. German title: Die Kinderklinik

Comment: 2 or 3 boys in this hospital room. I don’t remember their names nor the exact episode. Can anybody help? Maybe also other interesting scenes and actors in other episodes? I think, I’ve seen 3 boys, but maybe one is from a different room.

Nice scenes. The boy on the right undressing himself wearing tighty whiteys (and the other is watching).

I thought, I already had a post of this.

Good 80s series. 5 Golden Globes.

Rating 7 for now.

Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Josh ~13, Sam ~8
Kind of beds: separate ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Brothers Josh and Sam, played by Canadian Jacob Tierney and Noah Fleiss, I think sharing this room (or maybe have separate rooms ?). Sorry, I don’t remember this movie and have to recheck it.

Looks like a typical, modern 90s bedroom. I think few scenes as this is a road movie.

Rating 4-5 for this bedroom for now only. Movie rating maybe even higher.

Comment: Peter Billingsley, around 13 or 14 yo (but younger looking)  in this typical 80s bedroom. I think no siblings. Scene at 53 minutes.

After finding it for my Shiny shorts blog (rating 5, f/m) and rechecking “A Christmas Story (1983)”, now also an entry here.

Very interesting 80s movie. Although I don’t like Peter Billingsley.

For bedroom scenes, rating 5-6 only.

Comment: I think this is the messy room of main character 12 yo Simon, played by 11 or 12 yo Maximilian Ehrenreich. I think no siblings. The other two boys are his friends. Very funny movie. In this scene they practising cutting bananas.

Small but quite modern room, although wooden bed and furniture.

I even bought this movie on DVD. It has been aired on TV soon after the DVD release. Interesting plot and handsome actors, especially Ben and maybe Clemens. I like freckles.

Movie rating ~7. Bedroom rating ~5.
