Sci-Fi series, 72 ep
Year: 1990-1993
Year in film: 1990s ?
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Jim ~9
Kind of beds: single
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Another one starring Jesse Zeigler, I think pictured shirtless in pajamas. Not sure if it’s his bedroom. Doesn’t look like childish. Pic from s1e9. There’s also a scene with the lady (mom?) in (this or similar) wooden bed (same episode). Rounded head part. Maybe they even share this bed? Also Jim in a hospital bed in s1e8.

Handsome boy actor. Obviously very few bedroom scenes.

For the bedroom rating ~4-5 only.

Matinee (1993)

Comey film by Joe Dante. John Goodman, Omri Katz
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1962
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Gene ~16, Dennis ~8 ?, others
Kind of beds: separate bed, singles
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: Britain Simon Fenton as Gene (pic 1, sitting on left/upper bed, scene near the beginning) sharing a 1960s room with his younger film brother Dennis (Jesse Lee Soffer). Pic 2 showing Omri Katz phoning with a girl (both in separate rooms).

Very interesting movie set in 1962. I found it after finding Jesse Zeigler in North (1994), see my bib overalls and Western blogs. Nice 60s haircuts, clothes and props. But few and brief scenes.

I like this movie. Although Simon Fenton (and Omri Katz) are looking quite old and the other boy quite young.

Also soon on my Western blog (Dennis), rating ~5-6.

 

Lloyd (2001)

Lloyd: The Ugly Kid. Starring Todd Bosley. Kids’ film
Year: 2001
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Lloyd ~12 ?
Kind of beds: single bed ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, TV recording
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Todd Bosley in this bed and bedroom. He has a younger film brother (played by Sammy Elliott, around 8 yo, also shirtless), but I think he has a room for his own and sometimes wake him up. Also starring Brendon Ryan Barrett (a friend and classmate only ?). He is also shown there.

Great family film. Also on my bib overalls and Western blog rating up to 7.

For the room, rating ~4-5 only. Needs to be rechecked more carefully for other rooms or beds. Filmed in 1997 (or 1996).

Gentle Giant (1967)

Gentle Ben pilot. Clint Howard
Year: 1967
Year in film: 1960s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Mark ~7
Kind of beds: single ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Clint Howard, I think sleeping alone in this 1960s farm bedroom.

Not bad, but nothing special. I’m still searching for the Gentle Ben episodes showing Ron Howard in bib overalls. Brothers in real life, but I think a relative or friend in the series and Ron only appeared in 2 episodes. Not sure if the same room is shown in the series as well.

For the bedroom rating ~4 for now only. I only have checked this briefly. Probably few good scenes of the room. He’s very young and I don’t like him.

Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least one young boy, I think alone in this 50s bedroom. Even in color.

I found this during research. More movies from Encyclopædia Britannica (EB Films) and similar educational films on my other blogs, especially the overalls blog (list 62).

Rating 3-4. Available on YouTube. Entry on IMDb (what is unusual for these).

Some more movies coming soon (mainly b&w).

Year: 1981
Year in film: 1944
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Harry 9, Henry ~6
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Henry Thomas (1 year before film E.T., see also that entry) and younger film brother, played by Carey Hollis Jr.  sharing one bed. Looks like a wide, white metal bed with high side pieces. 1944 US farm setting. There’s also a young visitor (Eric Roberts as sailor Teddy). Not sure, where he slept. Maybe in the same room as well. But he’s not a relative. And I think not sharing the same bed.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog (rating 6) and my sailor suit blog, rating 5.

Sorry, I haven’t made better pics of the room. But obviously a typical, nice farm room.

Rating ~5-6. Movie even better.

Comment: I think Sasha Mylanus in this attic bedroom. He also has a sister, probably with a room for her own.

Has just been aired. Nice, but typical Dutch movie. I don’t like this boy.

But nice colors. English titles: The Amazing Wiplala, Help! I’ve Shrunk the Family.

Rating ~4-5.

Also today in Die Pfefferkörner: 2 black brothers sharing one bed (s15e7).

Country: USA
Who in bedroom: boys ~9
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: Again 4 boys sharing one bed. But this time 2 in each direction (pic 2 heads at the foot side, obviously Buckwheat and maybe Froggy.) Other 2 are Robert Blake and maybe Happy (Mickey Laughlin). Maybe it’s the same bed than in other movies.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found many MGM Our Gang movies on facebook.

This movie also soon on my other blog, rating ~5.

Not bad, but boys are quite young, rather few scenes, so rating ~4-5.

Main overview here b&w/colorized, rating up to 6
