Comment:
Julien (Erwan Baynaud, on the right) I think has no siblings and his parents are divorced. He is also shown in a different bedroom (more a childish bedroom). This is maybe the bedroom of his mother? He and his friend just undressing for kick boxing (shirtless in underwear and oiled). They are lying in this single bed as well. I remember also a brief bathtub scene (Julien only).

Very good movie. I like French movies (but I prefer historic settings). His friend is more handsome.

Deleted on YouTube but I have a TV recording somewhere. There are also other interesting episodes of this series (another entry coming soon, orphans including a bunk bed).

For bedroom scenes rating 6-7. No siblings and single beds only. The movie itself rating about 7.

Brothers Ron aka Ronny Howard (Virgil, on right) and his younger brother Clint sharing this cabin. Beds angled at 90 degrees (heads/pillows).

Quite interesting ranch movie / western showing famous brothers in real life. Also riding scenes.

I haven’t seen this movie for a long time and have to recheck it and hope for a soon broadcasting.

Ron is quite old and tall; Clint very young and small. Some interesting clothes but probably no jeans or bib overalls.

I even have one of the novels by Ralph Moody (including pictures showing a boy in bib overalls, but this is part 2 and most likely not in the movie.)

For the book entry (“The Home Ranch”) see my overalls blog (tagged book), for more infos about the clothes see my western blog, rating 4.

Bedroom rating 6-7 for now.

A young boy in this white bedroom. Interesting white metal bed and white nightshirt or similar. Also other interesting clothes including a sailor suit (see my other blogs).

Scene is at 9 minutes.

Nice bedroom and quite rare for a western but there are much better movies. Westerns and movies involvong bedrooms. Probably no siblings and few good scenes.

For more infos see my western blog, rating 4.

Comment:
4 siblings are locked in a mansion in a large room. The teen girl and her younger sister sharing the left bed and the brothers the right one. Set in the late 1950s but it’s timeless anyway.

This interesting remake (novel by V. C. Andrews) had been aired 2 days ago. Unfortunately I missed the beginning which takes place one year ago and probably showing their real home and bedrooms as well. But I doubt that they shared beds then.

Exciting movie also includes romatic scenes between the teens.

There are much better other movies with siblings. The younger kids (Maxwell Kovach and Ava Telek) are very young and the older ones quite old (Mason Dye is about 17, Kiernan Shipka about 15). And it’s not their real home room and situation.

But interesting plot and a new entry for some rare tags (brother+sister sharing a room and sisters sharing a bed).

I have to check the 1987 movie and there’s also a 2014 sequel. Also starring Ellen Burstyn as granny (“The Excorcist 1973”)

Rating 3-4 for this one.

Guy Edwards in this yellow sparse bedroom and a wide, dark steel bed.

Had been aired some days ago. Somehow I hoped for better scenes and maybe sailor suits or similar.

I was a bit disappointed. Although he is blond and handsome. He also starred in “The Place of Lions” (1997).

Somehow I don’t like this movie and I doubt that the other version are better.

Rating 3-4 for this single bedroom.

Comment:
Several mainly boys including orphans in very different bedrooms. Also bunk beds, dormitories and at least 2 and 3 boys sharing one bed. 111 episodes in 5 seasons.

One of my most favourite series or maybe the most favourite in the 80s. I still have some episodes on VHS and DVDr. Some handsome boys and also some wearing swim shorts. My most favourite episode is s2e1+2. Many episodes are very dramatic and tear jerking often about handicapped kids and other problems. Starring Michael Landau and Victor French. Also many, partly famous guest actors. My latest entry on my western blog (“A Gunfight”, 1971 starring Eric Douglas, rating 8 also starred here in s4e6 but older now).

First to the scenes pictured. Pic 1 from s1e3 showing 2 boys sharing one bed. I don’t remember their names. Later Barret Oliver in one bed at a hospital, probably on the right). Pic 2 from s2e1, my favourite episode about cancer and a summer camp, but here still at home. Pic 3 from s2e2 (same episode part 2 at camp) with many bunk beds. Pic 4 is also from s1e3.

Some other episodes I found (but I haven’t checked them all) s2e13 interesting bed, s4e13 with 4 boys (at least 3 sharing one bed, one boy is older, but dark lit scene).

I like the 80s and this is definitely worth buying on DVD (but this is often rebroadcasted, so I save the money).

I don’t remember much episodes showing perfect bedrooms and showing brothers. Or very interesting bunk beds.

So rating 6-7 for now. Series is much better though. I have to record and recheck all episodes the next airing.

Update: I bought this DVD set. 2 more wpisodes of interest (both season 3, rating 6)

Comment:
Simon Eckert (Noah, on the left), Patrick Katzer(Tobias), right bed, both 16 yo sharing this castle bedroom with nice antique looking wooden beds, furniture and wall decoration. There’s one other mattress on the floor on the opposite wall (so angled at 90 degrees) for Raphael, 16 yo as well but none are brothers. Probably this is the room for the teen boys and there’s at least one or two other rooms for the 4 teen girls (all 16 yo, at least 2 of them are sisters) and some more rooms for the castle owner and maybe some empty rooms. Pic is from the new 3rd season, I think s3e12.

As announced I also want to post older looking German rooms although I prefer US movies and series.

This mystery series and castle setting reminds me to other series like The Famous Five and other UK and Enid Blyton series (but here with older teen actors).

I also have an entry on my overalls blog (season 1) but I haven’t seen an actress in overalls here (but I missed most of the new episodes).

I don’t like series with older teens and the series isn’t very exciting to me. Quite interesting bedroom though. But otherwise nothing special and that’s not their real home and bedrooms.

Rating 4-5.
