Comment:
Logan Lermann (right) and Benjamin Petry sharing this bed. Typical western house. But I didn’t pay attention if they had a room for their own or if also their parents sleeping in there. Also starring Christian Bale.

Had been aired some days ago (as mentioned on my overalls blog). I only have seen the first half of it. Nominated for 2 Oscars. But the 1957 b&w movie seems much better festuring younger teen boy actors. But I only have seen that movie partly as well and have to recheck it for bedroom scenes (at least good riding scenes in that).

I like westerns and ranch movies. The problem is that bedrooms don’t pay much attention here, especially not of kids. If someone can call that bedroom.

The age difference is very high and Marc even look much younger. I prefer separated beds in that case. At least another entry with a shared bed.

Logan Lerman is quite handsome here but I think I somehow don’t like this movie.

Bedroom rating 2-3, movie rating 5.

Update: I have completetly checked the 1957 version. No bedrooms (except for one brief scene of a man’s). Also rather few scenes of the boys. I had expected a bit more. Still needs checking the rest of the 2007 movie.

Comment:
Several girls (orphans) in different beds and rooms throughout 6 seasons and some movies. There are standard beds as well as this rare bunk bed in pic 2 which looks very integrated and featuring pink curtains. Probably on the right is another one. Pic is from episode 136. Typical girls’ colors. I only remember integrated beds and curtains in 19th century movies. Of course not so colorful.

First pic from episode 97 showing a teen boys’ (?) room with a grey bunk bed. Also an interesting colorful room.

Probably there are much more other bedrooms (also of grown ups). I don’t have the time to check more than 1000 episodes but I think mainly girls are shown.

Rare and interesting beds but rating 3 for now only.

Also on my overalls blog (rating 3, boys, girl, woman).

Update: I forgot one scene in ep1: 6 separate beds and 2 bunk beds, makes 10 girls in one room. Mainly grey color.

Update 2: I now also have Chiquititas Brasil (1997), rating 7-8. At least 5 boys in one room and 6 girls in another.

Update some more interesting rooms in this 1995 series (rating 9), previously 3

Comment:
The twin brothers, played by Christian and Jospeph Cousins sharing this modern 90s bedroom. Wooden parallel beds and blue sheets, pillows, pictures and curtains.

Not bad and a funny movie but I think rather few bedroom scenes. I remember 2 short scenes only and can’t remember showing them in their beds.

Also some few other interesting scenes (on boy and a man in bib overalls, rating 2 on my other blog), also pajamas and shirtless in boardshorts.

Boys are quite young (although looking a bit older here), modern, too modern room, and few scenes.

So rating 4-5 only, but I have to recheck it the next broadcasting.

Comment:
Canadian Joey Cramer in this bedroom. I think a room for his own. I don’t remember that older guy. But most scenes are outside that bedroom as usual anyway.

Recently I have searched for some 80s movies and stuff (see my overalls blog). I have seen this complete movie many years ago and only can remember some key scenes.

I like this movie. Very handsome actor and funny scenes like a peeing scene.

There are some websites dealing with the 80s props like shoes or toys and I think I have to add this as well.

There are few good pics of 80s bedrooms and few good scenes of (non-actor) 80s kids and teens.

I’d like to watch this  movie again and will recheck it for more scenes. Very interesting that they are going to make a sequel. I also own similar movies like D.A.R.Y.L.

Rating 5-6 only for this bedroom (movie rating about 7). Maybe it was higher some years ago.

Comment:
Alvin Alvarez as Larry (10 yo in season 1) sharing a room with his 2 older brothers. He has a separate bed on the right (pics 2 + 3). One of the brothers sleeps in a high sleeper, the other below that. Larry has a twin sister who has a room for her own (also shown in s1e1).

Pic 1 is from s1e4, pic 2 from s2e6, pic 3 from s1e1.

The series is not available on DVD but on YouTube (with Spanish subtitles). Not sure about the time setting. Some props seem much older. Probably filmed starting the late 90s but setting could also be even in the 80s but I don’t think so.

3 brothers in a room and a high sleeper is quite rare. I haven’t checked all episodes, but somehow I don’t like it.

For more infos see my overalls blog. Larry also sitting on his bed in overalls.

Rating 4-5 for now. There is also a movie.
