Comment:
I think this is Jay Ine in the right room. Obviously he has an older brother (Ralphie) who has a separate room. S1e10. 56 minutes.

Based on the novel In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd (“A Christmas Story (1983)”)

I found it by searching for a Damon Raskin movie for my overalls blog. There are some other related movies with the Parker family like “My Summer Story / It Runs in the Family”. Also check out “Ollie Hopnoodle’s Haven of Bliss” on my Western blog. Coming here soon as well.

I don’t know/don’t remember this complete movie but I assume few good scenes.

So rating 5 for now.

Comment:
This is series about an orphanage with at least 5 boys (maybe some or all are brothers ?) sharing one room in season 3 with 2 blue bunk beds and one separate bed. Also at least 6 girls sharing another room (pic 2, ep 120).

There are hundreds of episodes and I only have checked some few of them, mainly 1998 and 1999 for my overalls blog (f/m, rating 6 for now). There are also other locations with single beds. Some bunk beds are maybe in wall niches (at least in the original series). Material unknown. Some bunk beds seems to be out of wood. Last pic rather metal?

Pic 1 is from s3e61. Pic 3 from an unknown episode, probably season 3 as well. That room is very large.

There are also many other Chiquititas series in different countries (originally from Argentina, rating 3) and also a modern 2013 Brasilian series. More posts coming soon.

Rating even 7-8 for now.

Update: Tiere bis unters Dach

tierebisuntersdach-ep68

Another nice wooden bunk bed or looking more likely a high sleeper in season 6 (episode 68). This time of one or two boys (new characters, Tom? on left in the background). He has a brother called Ben. Previously I only noticed a high sleeper and another bed of two girls.

Main entry, rating 5

Comment:
Brothers Joey and Matt aka Matthew Lawrence starring here (also as brothers Joey and Matt) but I’m not sure if they also sharing a room. Pic 1 (s5e1) showing at least one wooden bed. Old fashioned furniture but could be the room of one or both boys. Set in California. There are also 3 sisters (~14, 16, 20 in season 1).

Pic 2 from s6e22 showing a different, modern and tidy room with 2 angled beds. Maybe of 2 of the sisters. Sports pennants on the wall, so could also be of the boys.

More infos on my overalls blog (rating 4).

I only found very few bedroom scenes (checked s3-s6 only as the Lawrence brothers only appeared there). Probably some more bedrooms (of adults or teen girls were shown).

Rating 5-6 only.

Update: Salty

salty1973

Has been aired some weeks ago and I almost forgot it. I already had an entry about this famous 1973 movie starring 13 yo Clint Howard, but I think a bad pic inside a bus. This nice green room is from his friend. Small room and I think no siblings as well.

Wooden bed and furniture, looks like made in the 50s or 60s. I like the colors. But few and brief scenes.

Still rating 5-6. There is also a 1974 series but I don’t remember that. Probably more scenes there.

Update: Fido

fido3fido2

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed most of it this time.

The bedroom scenes are better than thought and remembered. Unfortunately rather few good scenes. Even the room of the parents are interesting. I wonder why they have separated beds.

Pic 1 showing the blue room of 12 yo Timmy (Kesun Loder). Other rooms are blue as well even the kitchen. Nice, bright colors, especially for the 1950s. And good and funny unusual family Zombie movie though.

Previously rated 4 for the bedroom, now 5(-6). Unfortunately no siblings.

Comment:
Umberto Caglini in this bedroom with an old wooden bed. Not Sure about the location, probably not his real home but during his trip.

Based on the famous novel Cuore (Heart) by Edmondo De Amicis. I have some other movies on my sailor suit blog (Cuore (1984) rating 10, Jesli serve masz bijace (rating 4) but these are set in the 1890s.

This one is set much later in 1988 other sources say 1976. 3/6 episodes. I also have here Marco (2011) 2 brothers rating 6.

Handsome boy, but I remember few (good) bedroom scenes. So rating 5-6 only.

I only found a Polish DVD.
