Comment: Obviously 2 brothers sharing a bed. Also a dorm at an boarding school  shown. Girls in a (different but very similar) dorm.  There are 5 siblings, 3 boys and 2 girls in the main family. Nice underwear and I think swim scenes.

Also 2 older boys and a man in one bed in the first movie Five Little Peppers and How they Grew.

I first found the PD novels by Margaret Sidney. Also on my bib overalls blog (little girl). and soon on my Pigtails blog.

Next to Tommy Bond there’s also (older) Ronald Sinclair starring.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: Jackie Cooper, I think alone in this bedroom. 1900s wooden bed with high posts. But I think set in the presence, 1930s (or 20s). Based on the comics (1923-1945). First, I wasn’t sure about the setting due to the clothes and costumes, but there’s a 1930s car shown.

Only two good scenes of this room at the beginning. Nice dressing scene.

Also on my overalls and sailor suit blog (other boys).

For the bed(room) rating ~5.

Comment:
Sebastian Rice-Edwards as 9 yo Bill and his film sister (Geraldine Muir) sharing one bed or at least one room in WWII (pic 1). Sorry, I don’t remember. There’s also another location with him on top of a bunk bed. Needs to be rechecked as I missed this movie.

Great movie, has been aired some time ago. I used to watch these kind of movies in theaters in the late 80s.

Very nice plots of boys and girls. One of my favourite movies and actor then.

For the bedrooms rating ~4-5. Much more for the movie itself ~8. Currently, I prefer US, Canadian and Italian movies. I usually don’t like those War movies but great actors and acting. Partly a comedy film.

Comment: 2 brothers and one sister sharing this room (Nathanael Saleh, Joel Dawson and Pixie Davis). Set in the 1930s as this is a sequel to the 1964 classic (which is set in the 1910s, no entry yet). Nice pajamas and short, white union suits.

New in cinemas. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5 for now.

I often prefer the classics. But probably a nice, but typical modern family film.

Kids are quite young. At least another brother/sister entry.

Rating ~4 for now.

Happy Christmas to all may readers!

Ronald Sinclair (then called Ra Hould, born in NZ), 1924-1992 sitting on top of a bunk bed in a cabin, visiting this man.

Nice sailor suit scenes (other blog rating 7) and other scenes of interest (swimming in underwear). I even bought the DVD.

Few bedroom scenes, no siblings. Typical runaway plot movie of these days.

For bedroom rating ~3 only.

Comment:
I think it’s Lukas Haas, in this 1930s bedroom with maybe just one steel bed. Also sharing this bed with a young lady, probably Laura Dern (not his film sister). I think no siblings.

I’ve checked this long time ago and don’t remember much of it. Nominated for 2 Oscars.

Interesting setting and plot (novel by Calder Willingham) but I don’t like much this actors.

Rating ~4 only.

Comment: Richard Morgan, I think alone is this bedroom. Pic from ep 136 (season 3), so around 19 or 20 yo. He has a sister, a bit younger and an older brother, but I think both with rooms for their own. Probably also other locations maybe bunk beds (of soldiers ?).

The series is currently being aired on Bibel.TV.

I don’t like this series set during WWII. But interesting bedroom and clothes like knickers.

Also on my bib overalls, pigtails and bedroom blogs.

Rating 3 for bedrooms only.

Comment:
Nico Ramon Kleemann ~12 yo as 8 or 9 yo main character Hans (younger) and his film sister, Trude (real name Ruth), one year older (Charlotte Lorenzen ~12 yo) sharing this bedroom. There’s a carpet as curtain hanging between the beds as room divider.

Filmed 2015 in Vienna. Set in 1931. The 2nd half is set in ~1939 with different actors. Few good (bedroom) scenes there.

Also on my sailor suit and pigtails blog.

Very interesting movie and bedroom. Some handsome actors.

For the bedroom rating ~5-6. Movie rating ~6-7.

Update: Les allumettes suédoises

allumettessuedoises-n3allumettessuedoises-n2

I have rechecked the complete series (rating 8).

Next to the great scene of Olivier and his Jewish friend David sharing one bed, there are also dorm scenes in ep 1 and ep 3 (ep 3 pictured). At least 12, probably some more beds in the dorm. Episode 1 has only or mainly dark scenes.

Also now on my bib overalls blog (rating 2, in fact an old man only but Olivier and a woman in blue aprons). Also soon on my pigtails blog.

German Wikipedia says 12 yo Olivier in 1932, French Wikipedia says 10 yo in 1930. Maybe in the novel only? Actor is 14 and/or 15.

Great series, main entry
