Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Peter Billingsley, around 13 or 14 yo (but younger looking)  in this typical 80s bedroom. I think no siblings. Scene at 53 minutes.

After finding it for my Shiny shorts blog (rating 5, f/m) and rechecking “A Christmas Story (1983)”, now also an entry here.

Very interesting 80s movie. Although I don’t like Peter Billingsley.

For bedroom scenes, rating 5-6 only.

Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: Simon ~11
Kind of beds: single
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Rating: 5/10 *
Rating: *****
Comment: I think this is the messy room of main character 12 yo Simon, played by 11 or 12 yo Maximilian Ehrenreich. I think no siblings. The other two boys are his friends. Very funny movie. In this scene they practising cutting bananas.

Small but quite modern room, although wooden bed and furniture.

I even bought this movie on DVD. It has been aired on TV soon after the DVD release. Interesting plot and handsome actors, especially Ben and maybe Clemens. I like freckles.

Movie rating ~7. Bedroom rating ~5.

Kind of beds: single

Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Andrew Ian McMillan in this bedroom. I think no siblings.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 8.

I think, I have seen this movie on TV but can’t remember. I don’t like snow movies. Aka just “Kavik the Wolf Dog”. Novel by Walt Morey (maybe also worth reading).

Rating 4-5 for now. Typical room. Nothing special but not that bad.

Swiss Family Robinson (1976)

Adventure series. Chris Wiggins
Year: 1976
Year in film: 1801 ?
Country: Canada
Who in bedroom: Ernest 22, Marie ~12 ?
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: I found this scene in episode 2. Not sure who’s sharing this bed, I think it must be Michael Duhig and 12 yo Heather Graham. I wonder why Ernest is that old (22) in this series. In the novel he’s 13.

Probably the others also sleep in the same room? Including blonde Franz (Ricky O’Neill) around 13 yo and the parents?

Also on my pigtails blog rating 8.

Not to be confused with the 1975-1976 US series with a 13 yo Eric Olson as Ernie.

Rating 3 for now for the “bedroom”. Needs to be rechecked.

Armans Geheimnis

Year: 2015-
Year in film: 2010s, Fantasy, 1900s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: teen boys, girls ~15
Kind of beds: separate+single
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Main characters are 5 teens (3 boys, 2 girls). Modern ranch and city setting obviously in the present. But also other (fantasy) worlds and/or time travel. Partly looking medieval. Some clothes look like 1900s. Pics from today’s episode s1e13. Pic 2 maybe a bit earlier (bed of younger girl). I haven’t found infos about the exact time setting (in the other world). Or the exact plot.

At least 3 or maybe all 5 beds on pic 1. Beds angled. 2 boys head to head.

Starring Gil Ofarim, Sinje Irslinger and Luise Befort.

I don’t like this series with older teens. Reminds me of “Fluch des Falken” which is similar (boring).  There are also some younger actors (relatives) including boys, like Lutz Simon Eilert and Gereon Schoel, but I only have seen some pics and no more bedrooms. Unknown episode. Needs to be rechecked.

2nd season to be aired on Easter.

Rating 3 for now only. Typical series, mainly for girls (horses).

The Adventures of Skippy

Family series, kangaroo, remake
Year: 1992-1993
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Australia
Who in bedroom: Jerry, Lou 10
Kind of beds: bunk bed
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 6 /10
Rating: ******
Comment: 10 yo brother Jerry (Simon James, red shirt, upper bunk) and his film twin sister Louise (Kate McNeil) sharing this room and dark wooden bunk bed. Pic from s1e22. Also he shown in bed in s1e14.

A room of a Japanese girl is shown in s1e12. Also some more locations, like a tent (boy with a dark bowlcut and round glasses in s1e25).

Good series and handsome kids, but I prefer the 60s Classic (rating 6, 2 brothers).

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 9.

Comment: Canadian Michael Caloz at least in pic 1 in a modern, colorful bedroom. Scene at 22 minutes. Not sure about pic 2,  according to my notes of my VHS this must also be from this movie but I haven’t found it online. A boy at least shirtless in this loft of a cabin.  Reminds me of much earlier settings like LHOTP. Who can help here?

I also have him in Whisker (1997) rating 6.

Rating 4-5 for pic 1 and 3-4 for the “bedroom” of pic 2. Obviously no siblings. Movie is quite poor.

Comment: Jonathan Kahn in this interesting attic bedroom. No siblings. Wooden bed.

Very interesting movie with some strange scenes. I still have it completely on one of my last VHS. 1963 novel by Yukio Mishima. Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.

I don’t like to 70s nor the 60s. And no siblings.

So for the bedroom, rating 5-6 only. Plot/movie rating8-9.

Comment: Bill Switzer in this bedroom. He has a younger sister in the series, around 9 yo, but I think she has a room for her own.

I have briefly checked this series and the 1991 series starring Omri Katz, mainly for shiny shorts scenes. I haven’t found any, just boxer shorts. (Rating 10 in Dallas).

Rating 4-5 for now.

The original series is much better and Omri even more handsome (rating 10, bedrooms there rating 6.)

Die rote Zora und ihre Bande

Adventure mini series, 13 ep
Year: 1979
Year in film: 1930s
Country: YU, D, CH
Who in bedroom: Branko 12, other
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 9/10
Rating: *********
Comment: 2 orphaned boys sharing one bed. I think it’s 12 yo Branko (Nedelijko Vukasovic) in the bed on the right. 1930s setting. Is this in the castle? Looks more like cave. Pic from ep. 11. I haven’t noticed other bedrooms.

Very interesting series, but mainly for Branco (also shirtless in black shorts, shiny shorts blog rating 6). And also on my sailor suit blog (historical clothes, rating 5).

I only have checked this series at high speed.

Rating 9 for now. The 2008 remake is very poor (but needs rechecking for bedrooms). I only remember the prison scene at the beginning.

For more infos and pics see my other blogs.
