Comment:
There are 7 siblings or even 8. The main character is a boy called Laurie, ~ 6 yo at the beginning, soon after WWI, played by Stephen Grendon. Semi-autobiographical novel by Laurie Lee (*1914-1997). He has one younger brother, around 1 year younger and at least 2 older brothers. One sister died in 1915. So I think 3 more sisters (in probably another room). Pictured are obviously 2 different rooms. Pic 1 has I think 2 beds, pic 2 just one. Nice metal beds (brass ?).

Pics are set in the late 1910s or ~1920. There are 2 other actors of Laurie as teen boy and young adult. There are also 2 later movies, which also needs to be checked but probably aren’t better.

Interesting movie and bedrooms. Nice farm setting. But the boy is very young.

Rating ~6.

Comment:
Looks like 2 different locations, as I only noticed one bed in pic 1 and 2 beds in pic 2. The main character is probably Iván Fernández as orphan Pedro. The other might be Miguel Angel Garcia, maybe a friend. But not sure who sleeps in the other bed. Maybe a room of the orphanage or foster parents?

Also other scenes of interest like a bthing scene.

1948 novel by Miguel Delibes. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 3. Another very interesting coming-of-age movie after Delibes (including sailor suit as well) is “Retrato de familia” (1976). Unfortunately, only 1 part on YouTube. Soon on my other blog.

Rating ~4.

Comment:
Tod Fennell (Lassie 1997), I think alone in this metal bed, set in the early 1920s.

Interesting bed and also good scenes of 16 yo Meredith Henderson in bib overalls and in a one-room schoolhouse (overalls blog rating 7), but the movie is quite boring.

Snow scenes are great these days. Novel by Elizabeth van Steenwyk.

For the bedroom, rating ~4-5. Movie even lower. I have very few 1920s movies here.

Comment:
2 brothers sharing one 1920s metal bed, also only one shown. There are more brothers, at least one more, maybe much older one (Daniel Wilson as August ?) . But not sure where he sleeps.

8 yo Alex Vincent (Child’s Play) and 15 yo Michael Bacall might share this bed.

Nice early 1920s setting, props and historical (winter) clothes.

But there are better movies. Novel by John Fante.

Rating ~4.

Comment:
Probably 2 brothers sharing this 1920 Australian bedroom. Black steel beds, alligned parallel. The boy lying on the bed is maybe younger, ~12 yo and the othe boy around 15-16 (also shown shirtless). There are also other kids including a younger boy ~7 yo with an older boy ~12 yo. So probably more rooms shown (other families ?).

Sorry, I don’t know the complete series.

Novel by Norman Lindsay. 10 episodes, directed by John Gauci (The Sullivans, Sugar and Spice, Pugwall).

Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 6.

For the bedroom rating at least 4-5 for now.

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:
Several young, orphaned boys in at least 3 separate rooms which are next to each other. First some different single beds, at least 3 or 4 beds including wooden and metal ones (pic 1) then one different room to the left at least 2 or more bunk beds. Also 2 boys sharing one bed.

Interesting movie, first on my sailor suit blog (few good scenes and mainly one very young boy, rating 4). Also other scenes of interest (bathtub scene of 2 boys, 1 walking around without clothes etc). Good plot, novel by Jules Supervielle. English title: The Children Thief.

Not bad but the boys are quite young and most bedroom scenes dark lit.

So rating 5 only.

Comment:
Gage Munroe and his younger film sister (Lane Styles)  sharing this 1920s farm bedroom. Looks like bunk beds or high sleeps due to the camera position but are ordinary single beds. White metal beds, at least that of the boy. Also nice pajamas. And he also wears bibs overalls.

Entry on my overalls blog was in January (rating 4 as well). I almost forgot this one as I have 2 folders on my HD.

Quite interesting movie (I have very few 1920s and even non-US and entries with brother and sister sharing a room).

Handsome boy actor but the girl is very young. And I remember very few good bedroom scenes. Scene pictured at 1h01.

Rating 4.

When the Wind Blows (1930)

Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 3 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least one young boy in this bedroom.

I found it by coincidence on YouTube, probably a recommendation of my previous entry with a similar title.

I haven’t checked the complete movie (20 minutes). I also have to check more of the Little Rascals. I don’t remember bedroom scenes there.

Typical bedroom of early b&w and silent films. See my other entries.

Obviously no siblings in this room. Nothing special. Maybe the other and colorized movies are better. Starring Jackie Cooper.

So rating 3 for now.

Update: Some good scenes (2 and 3 boys in 1 bed) in “Canned Fishing” and “Shrimps For a Day” including an orphanage. Rating 6.

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.
