Comment:
Looks like 2 different locations, as I only noticed one bed in pic 1 and 2 beds in pic 2. The main character is probably Iván Fernández as orphan Pedro. The other might be Miguel Angel Garcia, maybe a friend. But not sure who sleeps in the other bed. Maybe a room of the orphanage or foster parents?

Also other scenes of interest like a bthing scene.

1948 novel by Miguel Delibes. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 3. Another very interesting coming-of-age movie after Delibes (including sailor suit as well) is “Retrato de familia” (1976). Unfortunately, only 1 part on YouTube. Soon on my other blog.

Rating ~4.

Adam Wylie in overalls pictured in s3e2. Old bed, room doesn’t look like a kid’s room. I think no siblings?

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog (rating 6), but I haven’t rechecked this episode. Some more pics of (other) rooms there.

Rating ~4-5 for now only. Probably some more scenes in other episodes.

I think this is the room of the main character Sebastian (pic 2). His friend Sparrow lying on his bed, though.

Wall appearing pink, but this is probably just due to a red light.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 3.

Quite good movie and room. Directed by Scott Hicks. For more infos see my other blog.

Rating ~5-6.

There are different movies and series and I don’t know them all. I have checked several episodes for my bib overalls blog (f, m rating 8), recently mainly the 70s and 80s series. Few or no notable scenes in the 70s.

Pic 1 showing I think Joao Vitor Silva, so in 2004 or 2005 sitting in beige overalls near an older teen boy or young man. There are 3 metal beds, not sure who sleeps in there, maybe the 3 boys. Old wooden furniture but room appears colorful. Clip called Wanessa no Sítio do Pica-Pau Amarelo – Parte 19.

Pic 2 from 2005 episode Cuca Assusta Pedrinho, so must be Joao Vitor Silva as well. Maybe the same bed, but I only noticed one bed in this room and the room looking completely different.

Unpictured a room with 2 older girls (+the Human Doll Emilia) in the same episode. White yellow pink.

I have to check more episodes, especially the 2001 series with different actors. Maybe also brother and sister sharing a room? Also on my pigtails blog.

Has been aired yesterday (but I missed some parts). Interesting movie and clothes and handsome Alex Etel. Better pics maybe later. 1940 setting at his grandmother.

There’s a similar 1986 mini series called “The Children of Green Knowe” with a younger boy and also girls. Coming later.

For the bedroom, rating 3-4 for now. Needs to be rechecked.

Tod Fennell (Lassie 1997), I think alone in this metal bed, set in the early 1920s.

Interesting bed and also good scenes of 16 yo Meredith Henderson in bib overalls and in a one-room schoolhouse (overalls blog rating 7), but the movie is quite boring.

Snow scenes are great these days. Novel by Elizabeth van Steenwyk.

For the bedroom, rating ~4-5. Movie even lower. I have very few 1920s movies here.

And yet another post of Gunsmoke. 9 or 10 yo Eric Shea (even younger looking) on left and his film sister played by 10 or 11 yo Pamelyn Ferdin sharing one bed. I don’t remember the location. Maybe not at home. Looks almost like in jail.

Also on my Western blog, rating 4.

Peter and Eva Hagenbäume (brother and sister in real life) I think sharing this room. Beds maybe horizontally aligned, also both shown sitting on the same bed. Nice pajamas scenes and other scenes of interest (swimming, bathtub).

Needs to be rechecked.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl rating 3). Novel by Ann Ladiges. Now available on DVD.

For the bedroom rating 4-5 for now (although I don’t like the 70s).

There are 2 young brothers, played by Dennis Ross and Lonnie Thomas and maybe both sharing this room. Vintage steel bed(s).

I’ve checked it briefly some time for my Western blog (rating 5), but don’t remember much.

Rating at least ~3-4 for now. Boys are quite young.
