Comment:
I think Jason Barnhill in this room. Probably no siblings.

Although on DVD, this seems to be quite rare. AKA Good Housekeeping Kids: Thinking Big. 60 minutes. Filmed in 1986 and directed by Thomas E. Engel.

Also this and other boys, partly also older, shirtless in swim shorts and board shorts. Shiny shorts blog rating 6 (no pics).

There are better movies about bedrooms and this boy is quite young.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment:
There are (at least) 3 boys, probably brothers in this room. The 2 pictured from a colorful red metal bunk bed and an older teen boy, shirtless on the right in a separate bed.

I found a very short clip, showing the younger boy picking up a sticky paper handkerchief from the floor and holding it to the nose of the other boy pictured.

I don’t know the title and can’t say anything more. Might be Spanish, Mexican or similar or even just Spanish dubbed.

Who knows the title? Maybe from the 1990s (or even late 80s or early 2000s ?) Looks rather like a TV series or maybe even just a commercial?

Rating 6 for now.

A teen boy called Daniel in this Bavarian, wooden room. I think no siblings. Pic from episode 1.

Also on my bib overalls blog (firefighters, women, men) rating 4.

Modern Heimatfilm / drama movie series.

Sundays on German’s ZDF. And on the mediathek.

Very interesting room. But no brothers, so rating 4-5 only.

Comment:
Jerry O’Connell as young Ralph Parker in this room (also shown shirtless).

He has a 9 yo blonde brother Randy (also shirtless), played by Jason Clarke Adams aka Jason Adams (see my Western blog, rating 5),  but probably he has a room for his own (although set in the 1950s)?

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie.

It’s related to “A Christmas Story” (1983) like some more movies, novel by Jean Shepherd.

Sorry for the bad pic. I can’t say much more yet. I think few good scenes of the room.

Rating 5 for now only.

I think 11 or 12 yo Scott Bloom (perfect light blue eyes) in this nice white 80s bedroom. Shirtless in bed with long white pajamas pants. He has a brother 3 years older, Brian Bloom (brother in real life and playing his brother in the movie). I think he has a room for his own? Not sure, I think it’s not shown. Scene at the very beginning of the movie. The bedroom of the parents is also shown in the middle.

Very good horror film.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating even 8-(9).

What else to say?

Rating 6-7.

18 or 19 y0 Matthew Labyorteaux in this 80s bedroom. I think no brothers. He probably has an older film sister but obviously with a room for her own.

Scene at the beginning of the movie. I haven’t noticed any other bedroom scenes of interest.

Also perfect swim shorts scenes of young boys (shiny shorts blog rating 10) and shorts of boys, an older teen girl and teen boy.

Rating 5-6 for this bedroom. Nothing special but not bad either.

Comment:
At least this dorm in 1944 or the early 1940s. Obviously mainly older teen boys or even men here. Probably also other rooms (of girls, young boys and toddlers) as well.

I don’t know the complete movie yet and found it by coincidence by searching for another movie. Starring Ivo Pietzcker (“Jack”, 2014 now with very short hair), also starring David Bennent.

I don’t like this dorm nor the 40s.

So rating 3 for now only for bedroom scenes. Also soon on my pigtails blog (rating ~4).

Comment:
Canadian Daniel Magder ? (A.J. left) and US Spencer Breslin sharing this modern bedroom. Green Soccer sheets and partly green and brown furniture. They have an older sister but with a room for her own.

According to IMDb Magder is half a year year older than Breslin. But he looks younger here.

I found a partial recording but have to recheck the complete movie later. Remake of an 1984 ABC Afterschool Special (needs to be checked as well).

Nice room, 2 interesting brothers. Typical family film also showing Ice Hockey scenes.

Rating 7 for now. Obviously rather few good scenes (at around 13 minutes).

The Waltons – Season 6

waltons-s6

There are 2 British orphans, boy and girl visiting the Waltons around Christmas (1939 ?), sharing one bed. Disc 4 at 1h13. I think it’s a double episode s6e1?

Probably the first episode of boy and girl sharing a bed. But the boy is very young and first never talks. Probably the room and bed of John-Boy. See main entry for other pics of this room.

Rating 4-5 for this.

Main entry rating 8 with up to 4 boys (usually 3 brothers) in one room and 3 sisters in another.

Update: Cebollitas

cebollitas-bed46

I also found 2 boys for the first time sharing a room in episode 46. But obviously not brothers but friends.

On the floor I think Diego who obviously owns this room and on the right young Gamuza in shorts or underwear who is allowed to use his bed.

I have the same room in the main entry. I prefer the modern, colorful other rooms.

Main entry, rating 4
