Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Henry Thomas (1 year before film E.T., see also that entry) and younger film brother, played by Carey Hollis Jr.  sharing one bed. Looks like a wide, white metal bed with high side pieces. 1944 US farm setting. There’s also a young visitor (Eric Roberts as sailor Teddy). Not sure, where he slept. Maybe in the same room as well. But he’s not a relative. And I think not sharing the same bed.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog (rating 6) and my sailor suit blog, rating 5.

Sorry, I haven’t made better pics of the room. But obviously a typical, nice farm room.

Rating ~5-6. Movie even better.

Country: USA

Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: Again 4 boys sharing one bed. But this time 2 in each direction (pic 2 heads at the foot side, obviously Buckwheat and maybe Froggy.) Other 2 are Robert Blake and maybe Happy (Mickey Laughlin). Maybe it’s the same bed than in other movies.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found many MGM Our Gang movies on facebook.

This movie also soon on my other blog, rating ~5.

Not bad, but boys are quite young, rather few scenes, so rating ~4-5.

Main overview here b&w/colorized, rating up to 6

Comment
Tommy (Pär Sundberg) and Annika (Maria Persson) sharing one bedroom. Beds are low and of light wooden. They are parallel aligned on the walls. Although timeless I think set in the 1940s (police men). Some clothes and props are rather 60s.

I have an entry but without pics. I searched several episodes but I only found this one. They are most often shown visiting Pippi.

Rating ~3-4 only.

Good and funny, timeless series. But there are even better ones also of Lindgren. Like Alla vi barn i Bullerbyn.

Comment:
Has been aired yesterday (but I missed some parts). Interesting movie and clothes and handsome Alex Etel. Better pics maybe later. 1940 setting at his grandmother.

There’s a similar 1986 mini series called “The Children of Green Knowe” with a younger boy and also girls. Coming later.

For the bedroom, rating 3-4 for now. Needs to be rechecked.

Comment:
7 yo Jakob Salvati in this bedroom, also sitting. Nice colorful /blue room, especially for the 1940s. Wooden bed, rather small room, so I think no siblings.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 4.

Few bedroom scenes, single, young boy, so rating 3-4 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:
At least 4 simple and very narrow, wooden bunk beds in a small dorm. Older teen boys and not very handsome. Pic from episode 2. Obviously still set in 1944 in Berlin.

I don’t like this series and expected much more. I even own the novel (but part 1) by Georg Lentz.

I like bunk beds, but there are better ones. Very few good scenes.

So rating (3)-4 only.

Comment:
One older teen boy and one younger boy sitting on the same bed in part 2. Not sure about their names. I think Andreas Polizia as 10 Siggi on the right? (or is it the 19 yo Siggi on the left?). I haven’t noticed a dormitory although it’s part of the plot.

I expected much more. I think, I’ve read, that the novel is much more of interest but maybe it’s a different one?

Also on my pigtails blog, rating 5 (girls and young lady).

Comment: 17 or 18 yo Sergey Bodrov (1971-2002), I think 9 or 10 yo Ruben Tapiero as 7 yo Seryozha and maybe a young lady (behind a room-divider) sharing this room. There’s also 14 yo Erwan Baynaud (L’enfant sage) as 14 yo Seryoza but I haven’t noticed him in a bedroom. I understood, that the 17 yo boy is a neighbor and not the brother.

Quite interesting but typical movie and room of this time setting.

English title: East/West or East-West. 121 minutes.

Rating 3 only.

Update: Islands in the Stream (1977)

islandsinthestream4

There’s also another location, with probably 3 beds for the three brothers, a bit later, in the middle of the movie. The 3rd bed of the older brother (also aligned horizontally as well) is on the opposite, right wall. 2 desks next each other at the north east, left to the door. Especially near the end of the movie, there are also some scenes on the boat and the bunks there, I think a 2 story bunk bed.

First I thought that the scene pictured would be a dorm and with 4 or 6 beds as the room looks quite large.

The other scene with the pillow fight earlier is much better, though. Now also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 4).

Main entry, still rating 7 at
