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.

The Waltons – Season 6

waltons-s6

There are 2 British orphans, boy and girl visiting the Waltons around Christmas (1939 ?), sharing one bed. Disc 4 at 1h13. I think it’s a double episode s6e1?

Probably the first episode of boy and girl sharing a bed. But the boy is very young and first never talks. Probably the room and bed of John-Boy. See main entry for other pics of this room.

Rating 4-5 for this.

Main entry rating 8 with up to 4 boys (usually 3 brothers) in one room and 3 sisters in another.

Update: Our Gang

ourgang-cannedfishingourgang-shrimpsforaday2

Like on all my other blogs, I make an update of this great Classic series aka Little Rascals. Please note, that I don’ know/don’t remember all movies. All or most movies were also colorized. There are some few siblings and twin characters (boys), but probably not shown here as most gang members are friends. Nice night shirts.

Pic 1 is from the 1938 movie “Canned Fishing”. Spanky is in Alfalfa’s bed but he sleeps in a different bed (in the same room) earlier. Wooden beds.

Pics 2+3 are from the 1934 movie “Shrimps For a Day”. There is a larger room in an orphanage with several beds, maybe around 8? But also 3 boys sharing one bed. Metal beds.

I previously just had “When the Wind Blows” rating 3.

/2013/07/06/when-the-wind-blows-1930/

I don’t like the orphanage and prefer the beds at home. I have to check more episodes. Maybe there are bunk beds as well? Or probably a foldaway bed?

Rating 6 for these scenes.

Comment:
Zachary Bennett (Sullivan) and film brother Greg Spottiswood sharing one bed. Also at least one other location at camp with at least one, probably 2 or more bunk beds in at least one cabin. Also a tent scene (see my overalls blog).

How could I miss this? I even own the DVD for years. But I rarely watch it.

Very interesting 1930s movie also showing Zachary Bennett in underwear (short buttoned union suit), there are more, even better scenes also walking front+rear. But this blog is just about bedrooms.

I’m currently very busy and will recheck the movie more carefully, later.

For now rating even 7 for bedroom scenes. Rating currently 4 on my overalls blog, rating 3 on my sailor suit blog).

Comment:
Some orphaned boys in a large, roomy dorm at a boarding school with metal beds.

Should not show Pagnol’s childhood memories, and set a bit later around 1925,  but filmed at his school in 1935 although it looks older.

I like Pagnol movies but there are much better ones (Check out my sailor suit blog).

Rating 3-4 for this one.

Two brothers sharing this 1930s bedroom on a farm.

Few good scenes, some in the dark, it’s a short film anyway.

I like this room and setting. So rating 7.

Several boys in this large dorm of a 1930s Spanish orphange.

English title The Devil’s Backbone. Coproduced by Pedro Almodóvar, rated R.

Also boys in bib overalls but few scenes, (see my other blog, rating 4).

Movie is much better, good setting and plot (rating 6). I don’t like much large dorms (without bunk beds).

So rating 5 for the dorm scenes.

Comment:
There are 5 brothers (or 4 ?) up to 15 years old in one room, even 2 sharing one bed. There is also a room nextdoor (to the north) with at least 3 sisters. (The boys walking in there in nightshirts).

The 2 older boys (pic 2) are on the left side. Scenes are near the beginning of the movie. It’s set in the early 1930s.

Also I think 3 boys in good sailor suits, soon on my other blog, rating 5.

Not bad but brief scene of this bedroom. I only have 2 movies with more than 5 boys in one room (except dorms).

Rating 5.

Comment:
Bill Switzer (right bed) and Alison Pill sharing this farm bedroom. Also shirtless scenes of Bill (wearing pajamas pants) and both in bib overalls (rating 10 + baggy). There’s more space next to the right bed. (Pic 2 , end scene).

One of my favourite bib overalls movies, both wearing baggy bibs, especially the girl. Bill also riding in bibs. Hickory striped and other overalls. Even farm work of both. I recently have rewatched it.

Very good movie dealing with the brother and sister relationship and finding dino bones. I even bought the novel (which I don’t like). Set in the 1930s.

Switzer is handsome, although I prefer blond actors. I think only 2 rather short bedroom scenes.

For more infos see my other blog.

Bedroom scenes rating 5-6. At least another 1930s and brother+sister entry what is quite rare.
