Comment:
Ron Howard (on the bed) and Darby Hinton in s5e23.

I’m still into Westerns, checked some good blogs and Western sites and found this very interesting series. (I also found some movies with bib overalls, soon on my other blog).

The blond Darby Hinton reminds me to the Sheriff Ben Danny book series (tag book on my overalls blog). Very good series, also showing lots of other kids, school scenes and the like.

Completely on YouTube, but I haven’t checked all episodes. The best is probably season 6 (school scenes, shirtless scenes). I even would buy this series but I prefer bib overalls.

Ronny Howard starred in this episode only. Also starring Kurt Russell and many others.

Rating 7-8 for this nice cabin set in the 18th century.

Comment:
Corey Sevier in this bedroom. He has a sister in this movie, but I think she has a room for her own.

Good and famous movie with handsome Canadian actor (Lassie (1997)), wearing bib overalls, also riding (see my overalls blog, rating 6). I have seen this movie, but long time ago. I even bought the novel by Wilson Rawls but also can’t remember the bedroom scenes. At least no bibs scenes at all.

I hope for a soon broadcasting. For more infos see my other blog.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Oscar nominated. Tom = Tommy Kelly
Year: 1938
Year in film: ~1850s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Tom ~13, Sid  ~11
Kind of beds: single bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 7 /10
Rating: *******
Comment: Tommy Kelly (Tom) and David Holt (1927-2003, Sid) in this bedroom. I’m not sure, but I think 2 separate beds (unlike the 1930 film).

Looks quite good but I have to check this film again completely at slow speed but I assume rather few bedroom scenes. Not sure if even the boys in the bed shown. If so probably in dark light at night.

Also starring May Robson, Walter Brennan and Victor Jory.

Rating 7 for now.

Les aventures de Tom Sawyer (1968)

Year: 1968
Year in film: 1800s
Country: Romania, F, D
Who in bedroom: Tom ~14, Sid ~ 11
Kind of beds: single beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 4 /10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Roland Demongeot (Tom) and Robert Hecker (Sid) sharing this bedrooms. 2 separate beds.

I don’t remember all episodes and only found few bedroom scenes. Some dark lit during night as Tom escaped.

Some good scenes in swimming costumes, but I don’t like this Tom Sawyer version. There are more handsome actors elsewhere.

Also starring Marc Di Napoli as Huck and Lina Carstens as Aunt Polly.

There are a lot of Tom Sawyer movies. Try a blog search. Movies with just Huck Finn are less of interest as he has no brother.

Rating 4 for now. The props and bedrooms aren’t so bad.

Comment: Jackie Coogan (Tom) and Jackie Searl sharing one bed.

Sorry for the bad image quality (from YouTube) and at night you can hardly see the room. I don’t know the image quality of the DVD.

I have to check this again and couldn’t find any better scenes. Maybe there are more rooms (Huck, Becky etc).

More Tom Sawyer movies coming soon.

Rating 4 for now.

Comment: Tom Sawyer (Sammy Snyders) and his younger brother Sid (Bernie Coulson) in one bedroom, separate beds. I think Tom sleeps on the bed below (near the window where he often escapes). They wear green striped night shirts. Huck Finn (Ian Tracey, 2nd pic) usually sleeps in a big barrel outside, but here he sleeps at his own at the widow Douglas. There are also some later scenes at the Grangerford family where Huck also sleeps ( 2 beds in one room). I will update this later.

Very good and maybe one of the best Tom and Huck movies/series. See also my bib overalls blog (rating 7), also showing some other Tom Sawyer movies (which I also have to check for bedrooms).

Set in the US, but filmed in Canada with some (grown-up) German actors.
