Comment: Zacharay Bennett in a large wooden bed with high posts. I think alone, unlike in earlier episodes. Also in a white night shirt. Better view of the room, previously I only noticed scenes at night.

Nice 1900s/1910s room and props. Dramatic plot.

Main entry, rating 6


I think he sleeps in a different room in season 5 (and later). Also nightshirt. And great bib overalls now rating 10.

Year: 1990-1996
Year in film: 1900s
Country: Canada
Who in bedroom: Felix 8 + Andrew 12; 2 girls

Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: 2 boys (Zacharay Bennett as Felix, pic 1 and I think older Joel Blake or less likeley Miklos Perlus) sharing one bed on the right and 2 young girls in the same room sharing the left bed. One is probably Cecily, not sure if the other girl is Felicity or Sara, as I think there’s a 3rd girl later, probably Sara climbing through the window from outside.

Pics from s1e13. On pic 2 one girl is alone in one bed. The setting later changed to Montreal (pic 2 ?). Are these the same wallpapers or do they swith to Avonlea? Sorry, I missed some parts and only checked it briefly.

The 2 boys are hard to notice in the dark, (Felix on the right side behind the older boy, briefly shown). I think all are siblings except main character Sara, who I think is a cousin, visiting her aunt. Not sure where she slept. Maybe in the same room and even 3 in 1 bed?

I don’t know all episode, so needs to be rechecked more carefully, especially the later seasons. Also recently updated on my bib overalls and sailor suit blogs.

For the bedrooms at least rating 6-7. Great series. Currently on Bibel TV.



Private Peaceful


War / drama
Year: 2012
Year in film: 1909-1916
Country: UK
Who in bedroom: Tommo ~9, Charlie ~14
Kind of beds: separate beds, 2 in 1

I own: no
Rating: 5/10 *
Rating: *****
Comment: The main plot is about 2 brothers, young Tommo 9 or 10 yo and young Charlie, played by Samuel Bottomley and Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, but there’s at least one more, very young boy (maybe Frasier Huckle as Jimmy), maybe he’s also sharing this room. At least the grown-up Tommo and Charlie later sharing one bed.

Interesting movie and a very interesting scene of both boys in underwear in a lake (rating 8).

For the bedrooms, rating 4-5 only.

Country: Germany

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 Night Before Christmas (1905)

2 boys+2girls+girl
Kind of beds:

Rating: **
2 young boys and 2 young girls each sharing one metal bed. There’s also an even younger toddler girl. Either there’s a third bed which I haven’t seen or she sleeps with her parents.

Short silent film. 9 minutes. PD available on Aka Hanging Stockings on a Christmas Eve.

At the beginning the kids are shown in the living room, the boys wearing white sailor collars. But mainly in the background and the image quality is quite poor.

First movie about this 1823 poem. But maybe set in the presence (1900s). Some sources say movie releases in 1908. IMDb says 1905 (but also says animation movie).

At least another movie with kids (including girls) sharing beds and even 5 in a room. Quite funny also a pillow fight, but the kids are much too young. Interesting historic bedroom and beds though.

Rating 2.

The Wild Country (1970)


Disney film
Year in film:
Who in bedroom:
Virgil 15, Andrew 10
Kind of beds:

Available on DVD:

6/10  ?
Rating: ******
Brothers Ron aka Ronny Howard (Virgil, on right) and his younger brother Clint sharing this cabin. Beds angled at 90 degrees (heads/pillows).

Quite interesting ranch movie / western showing famous brothers in real life. Also riding scenes.

I haven’t seen this movie for a long time and have to recheck it and hope for a soon broadcasting.

Ron is quite old and tall; Clint very young and small. Some interesting clothes but probably no jeans or bib overalls.

I even have one of the novels by Ralph Moody (including pictures showing a boy in bib overalls, but this is part 2 and most likely not in the movie.)

For the book entry (“The Home Ranch”) see my overalls blog (tagged book), for more infos about the clothes see my western blog, rating 4.

Bedroom rating 6-7 for now.

Two Weeks with Love


Musical comedy film  starring Jane Powell
Year: 1950
Year in film: 1900s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Ricky ~8, McCormick 13, man
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, TV recording
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Gary Gray (McCormick, on left), Tommy Rettig and a man in the same 19th century steel bed. Both wearing female nightshirts. Both arms slapping in the face of the man. Also both shown in bib overalls (see my other blog, rating 4), bathing costumes, festive grey suits (longer collar flap, Rettig only) and other costumes. Soon also on my sailor suit blog.

There is also a scene where the are both in overalls on a bed (probably that of their parents). Also girls / and or women in one bed, similar scene.

Typical MGM musical film.

For more infos see my other blog.

Rating 4-5 for these bedroom scenes. Rather few bedroom scenes and few (good) scenes of the boys. Best maybe the bathing costumes.



Drama series, 32 ep in 3 seasons
Year: 1989-1992
Year in film: 1897-1954
Country: Germany, Austria
Who in bedroom: Maxi ~11, Kurti ?
Kind of beds: single beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 8/10
Rating: ********
Comment: I think 2 brothers in this bedroom. White blue Bavarian sheets. 1st pic (right bed) is called Maxi. The other boy might be Ulrich Derse as Kurti.

1991 episode s2e7 “Vorsehungen”, set in 1939.

For more infos see my sailor suit and Lederhosen blog (both are shown, rating 9 for now for Lederhosen).

Series is currently running (on Sundays) but I missed the first episodes. So I will update this later. There are also other actors, not sure if bedrooms of girls and other beds like bunk beds or more kids in one room? Filmed in Munich ad Bavaria.

Bedroom scene rating 8 for now.

Update one other boy (alone in around 1934), rating 5.


Krambambuli (1998)


Year: 1998
Year in film: 1900s
Country: Austria, Germany
Who in bedroom: 2 boys + 1 girl ~8
Kind of beds: bunk bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, TV recording
Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: 2 young boys in the bottom bunk and 1 young girl in the upper bunk of this 1900s wooden bunk bed behind a curtain, so it’s not a real bedroom.

This remake of the 1940 movie had been aired some days ago. Quite interesting and my first entry with more than 2 in one bunk bed. Sadly no or no notable Lederhosen or sailor suit scenes.

I also have to check the first b&w movie. Novel by Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach. Diretd by Xaver Schwarzenberger (“Otto – Der Film”, Margarethe Steiff).

Starring Tobias Moretti, Gabriel Barylli and Christine Neubauer.

For bedroom scenes rating 4. Movie/plot is a bit better. Krambambuli is the name of a dog.

Die Gerechten von Kummerow

gerechtenvonkummerow gerechtenvonkummerow2

Family film, remake
Year: 1982
Year in film: ~1900s
Country: East Germany
Who in bedroom: boys ~12
Kind of beds: single beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: I think different locations. First pic: The sister (I think) tearing away the blankets of her brother’s bed. He is not wearing anything, so he turns to his stomach.

Very good film, sequel or remake to “Die Heiden von Kummerow und ihre lustigen Streiche” (1967), see also my sailor suit blog, rating 3 (for not real sailor suits). Die Heiden von Kummerow is much more often rebroadcasted. Both based on the famous novels by Ehm Welk.

I have a partly VHS recording but I often wasn’t sure about the title and counfound it with “Abenteuer in Bamsdorf” (this blog, rating 7), although the boy is younger there. In both DEFA films wooden beds and brother-sister relationship.

It’s hard to tell which movie is better. For bedrooms I prefer US films and brother-brother plots. For clothing I prefer sailor suits, Lederhosen and bib overalls instead of these brown pants.

But handsome actor and some interesting scenes. I hope for a soon TV broadcasting, so I don’t have to buy it. I have to check it again completely. Probably also something for my sailor suit blog. Even spanking scenes (without any clothes).

So rating 7-8 (for bedroom scenes), rating 6 for the movie.
