Huw Proctor in this colorful bedroom.

I recently searched for very handsome actors and found this one. Unfortunately it seems to be a very rare series and I first confound it with the Norwegian series Kampen (2013).

Starring Michael Owen.

Rating 6 for now. I hope for a broadcasting or DVD release or online vid and will recheck it then.

Grant Barker as main character in this ranch bedroom. Metal bed and blue wallpaper and sheets. Dog sharing the bed. He has an older sister but she has a room for her own (I think not shown).

Perfect ranch movie (rating 9 on my western blog, will soon be updated, also sonn on my overalls blog) and I have even bought it on DVD.

Some few bedroom scenes but nothing much more of interest. His mom visiting him.

For more infos see my other blogs.

Rating 5 for this bedroom.

Comment:
Pic showing Sean’s room (Andre Gower, Young Artist Award). There’s only a very brief scene at 44 minutes. Looks like a nice wooden bed and interesting 80s room. The room of little Eugene (Michael Faustino) is shown at 29 minutes. There’s also a tree house.

A cult movie aka Monster Busters. Maybe I have seen it then. Handsome Andre Gower.

Probably a good movie but unfortunately few bedroom scenes.

Rating 4-5 for bedroom. Movie probably higher. I hope for a soon broadcasting to check it more carefully on the big screen.

Two brothers, played by Philip Brown (Billy) and Todd Starke (1961-1983) sharing this bedroom with 2 wooden red beds. Doris Day is their mom and widow. Ranch setting.

Next to the 80s, the 60s is my 2nd favourite decade. (I don’t like the 70s). Pic is from s2e11. A better pic from s1 is at

Aka Doris Day in… Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.

There is a similar series “My Three Sons”, coming soon.

Rating 9 for now.

Sprite 1984 advertisement

spritead12-1984

I found this commercial by searching for school tv and CBS / ABC Afterschool Specials for my overalls blog (boys partly rating 10).

A little brother at the wooden bed of his older sleepy brother. Probably different bedrooms. Are these famous actors? The right one looks like Huckleberry Fox who also did other Sprite commercials. The older one also looks familiar.

Quite interesting. I like 80s stuff and movies and sometimes searching for it.

The problem is, that commercials are very short.

Rating 7 for this one.

Two brothers, played by Jeremy Sumpter (Peter Pan 2003) and Matt O’Leary (Brick) sharing this bedroom. Scene at 13 minutes. Later their dad left the room and they talked to each other.

I found this by coincidence on a list of a completely unrelated blog.

Maybe I have seen this movie before, but can’t remember. Completetly on YouTube but in a bad projection quality. So I hope for a soon broadcasting and will recheck it. I assume few good bedroom scenes as they are flashback scenes.

I somehow like the bedroom scenes and actors. 2 brothers at the right age. The movie itself also seems exciting.

Rating even 8 for now.

Comment:
First pic, 2 boys, probably brothers obviously sharing this bedroom. Pic 2 showing one of at least two rooms with orphaned girls. No large dorms. I think at least 3 wooden bunk beds and 2 smaller metal beds in one room. I don’t remember boys in that orphanage. Some kids have short hair, so it’s possible.

I found this by coincidence on YouTube but only have checked it at high speed.

English title: The Glass House: The Good Mother, original title Skleněný dům. There is also at least one sequel in 2001.

I can’t say much more yet. I prefer other movies.

Rating 3-4 or now. At least another entry with several bunk beds and girls.

Comment:
2 boys sharing one wooden bed. Also other scenes of interest.

Had been aired yesterday. (Can be watched again on arte.tv). At the beginning of episode 1 the boys are shown in the bed. They wear shirts and shorts, also shown outside the bed/bedroom. A bit later an interesting scene with 3 boys in a barn or hayloft. Reminds me of the series “1900” / Novecento.

At the beginning of ep. 2 they are shown in the bed with no clothes, at least no shirts. Good scene, but nothing more to see. Later in this episodes they are already grown-ups (1860s). Most other movies in this time are westerns.

Also historical clothes and school scenes, but due to the very early setting unfortunateley no sailor suits. Shirtless scenes with pants with suspenders.

Few good scenes, scarce “bedroom” probably it’s only one or few rooms for all of the people.

Rating 6-7.

Comment:
There are 2 sisters, 12 yo and much younger and a 10 yo boy. There’s a bunk bed and probably a separated bed, not sure for who and if in the same room. Also scenes 6 years earlier (also on my overalls blog, rating 2 for 4 yo Jimmy, probably also with the little girl in bibs).

I don’t remember this movie as I have checked it more than a year ago. Scene at 54 minutes. Probably there aren’t any better scenes, otherwise I had made a better pic.

Based on a true story. Movie won a Golden Globe. Directed by Robert Greenwald.

Rating 4 for this room.
