Comment:
Gage Munroe and his younger film sister (Lane Styles)  sharing this 1920s farm bedroom. Looks like bunk beds or high sleeps due to the camera position but are ordinary single beds. White metal beds, at least that of the boy. Also nice pajamas. And he also wears bibs overalls.

Entry on my overalls blog was in January (rating 4 as well). I almost forgot this one as I have 2 folders on my HD.

Quite interesting movie (I have very few 1920s and even non-US and entries with brother and sister sharing a room).

Handsome boy actor but the girl is very young. And I remember very few good bedroom scenes. Scene pictured at 1h01.

Rating 4.

Comment:
American Christian Juttner as Canadian Benjy (on the right) and another much older boy sharing one bed on a farm.

Also aired in 2 parts in Disney-Land s22e1.

Not sure about the setting. Probably before 1900s. Quite interesting. But I have to check the complete movie.

Rare and typical but good Disney adventure film. Handsome actor.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: Nice summer camp film. Different cabins (boys and girls). I think 2 bunk beds and 2 separate beds in the messy boy’s room, pic1, also shown cleaned up. So 6 boys, probably friends, not sure if some brothers as well. Pic 2 showing a girl’s cabin with at least one bunk bed and at least 2 separate beds.

Some good and funny scenes and bullying but I have to recheck the movie at slow speed.

Also on my overalls blog, rating 3 (girls, teen boy).

Rating 5-6 for the cabins. But I guess there are better camp movies. See my other entries, currently no specific tag (use dormitory or blog search with camp instead).

Comment: Brandon Tyler Russell in this bedroom with wooden bed and window. I think no siblings. Bed looks like of the 1960s but movie is probably set in the presence. The city boy visits his grandad (Peter Fonda) on his farm (picture ?). So maybe a different setting/bedroom shown as well.

Sorry, I can’t say much more yet. Pic is from the trailer.

I like this kind of bedrooms. Unfortunately no brothers. Maybe a typical Christian movie with a dog but I have to check the complete movie.

Rating 6 for now. Movie must be filmed earlier. Brandon was 16 or 17 in 2012.

Comment:
This is the room of a girl. Her brother has a room for his own. Probably looking similar. Pic taken from s1e1. I haven’t checked the complete series. Probably there are better scenes

I found this by coincidence during research for 80s stuff and first found Lee Sparke as Jonah, maybe her brother. Nice in jeans but the series probably show other clothes, mostly school uniforms.

Some other good scenes of kids at school and PE (s1e2). But I prefer US movies and series.

Looks like a typical British bedroom of it’s time. Quite dark and somehow not clean.

Rating 3 for now.

Update also good dorm scenes with several bunk beds in the 1983 ep s6e15 rating 6-7.

Comment:
There are at least 7 kids on holiday (4 boys, 3 girls)+ some more friends. I haven’t checked all episodes, so I can’t say much about the bedrooms. I don’t remember how many beds in this room (maybe just this one) pic from ep 19.

Quite sparse bedroom and simple metal bed but I like the color composition.

However there are also other very interesting scenes (shirtless beach scenes, 3 younger and 3 older boys). I found this during research for both my unknown movies on my sailor suit blog.

I have to recheck it later.

Rating 4-5 for now. Series probably higher (rating 6-7).

Update 2: The Wonder Years (1988)

wonderyears-s3e22

I saw by coincidence that this series is now finally (partly) on DVD I think up to season 4. But expensive and in probably quite bad (VHS) image quality and in English only.

This is my favourite entry. 2 brothers in the 60s. Perfect age and age difference. Mean older brother and handsome young brother (Fred Savage) sharing a room. Pic from s3e22.

Maybe I will purchase this series but waiting till the price drops. Or maybe there will be a rebroadcast. Many episodes are also on YouTube.

Also good music, and other interesting scenes (PE), handsome boys and romantic scenes.

Main entry, rating 10

Comment: Different locations. And from 2 to many kids. In total 18 kids. But not in one room. I think at least 8 rooms. Some kids are older teens (pic 3). The main location is a 2 story house with a lighthouse in it. This is a remake from the 1968 movie, I have to check as well. How could I miss them? I thought, I already had this but it was “Der Typ, 13 Kinder & Ich”.

Pic 1 showing at least 2 light blue bunk beds. A boy as boy scout in the lower bunk. So I think only 4 boys here. (Wooden light blue bunk beds also in the 1968 movie).

Pic 2 only 2 boys at a different location at the beginning of the movie.

Pic 4 showing 5 younger kids (boys+girls) in one room. At least one wooden bunk bed and a separate one. Maybe not even all sleeping in that room. And I haven’t seen any more than 5 in a bedroom.

Unpictured: 2 older teen girls sharing a room (similar to pic 3). Also 2 younger boys sharing one bed (at different orientations like in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days).

Brief scenes of the most interesting room (pic 1). But still interesting film of a large family and different rooms.

One scene with 6 young kids + 2 parents in one bed.

Rating 5-6 only.

Update: I made an entry for the 1968 movie (rating 7)
