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.)

Country: YU, D, CH
Who in bedroom: Branko 12, other
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes

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.

Rating: 8/10
Rating: ********
Comment: Jesper Salén (main character Roland, on the right) and his older brother sharing one bed in 1920s Stockholm.

Very interesting coming-of-age movie. I could I miss this? I have still most parts on a VHS. Maybe because I mainly remembered other scenes? Many good and even funny scenes. And the 3rd movie with a tongue at frozen steel.

Of course lots of historical clothes, but I only notice a woman in a sailor dress. Boxing scenes but I think not shiny shorts.

Handsome actors. Very good movie. English titles: The Slingshot, Innocent Life.

So rating 8-9.

Comment:
A young boy, I think Benjamin Brock (“Jack Frost”) in this nice bedroom with a big, brown wooden bed. I think he has an older brother, but not in this room.

Has been aired around Christmas. Typical funny family movie like most Disney movies and movies starring Robin Williams.

Not bad. The bedroom neither. But young boy and I think few good bedroom scenes.

Rating 4-5 only.

Also soon on my bib overalls blog (young ladies, brief scenes rating 3).

Comment:
At least these 2 separate bedrooms of this brothers Jurgen (pic 1) and Arjan (pic 2 also in underwear). They have 2 sisters and each of them also has a room for her own. Both pics from song “Ochtendhumeur” from episode 6 (1985). I think some more bedrooms in other episodes (episode 10 ?). I don’t know and don’t remember every clip but I assume rather few bedrooms for what I have seen. Many clips are outside or on the stage.

Rating 5 for now. And I doubt that there are better scenes. Bunk beds? More in one bed? Maybe in the show on stage? Often girls are shown.

Also on my bib overalls blog rating 8 (f/m) and my Lederhosen blog rating 3. I haven’t found girls in pigtails yet.

Comment:
At least one young boy in this, probably 1950s bedroom. Also another scene with a young boy in a separate bed next to his parents.

Setting is between 1955-1973. but most is probably shown in the 1950s.

Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5. Greek title: Πέπερμιντ.

Rating 3-4 for the bedroom scenes.

 

The Waltons – Season 7

waltonss7e1

In s7e1 (set around 1941), Mary Ellen and Erin sharing a tiny loft room and a foldayway bed at a guesthouse. Erin likes this room, but Mary Ellen doesn’t.

I prefer posting brothers bedrooms, but there are very few foldaway beds.

The Waltons also have some other and better scenes at their home, mainly 3 brothers in one room and 3 sisters (rating 8). Also some guest and other constellations.
