There are 2 young brothers, played by Dennis Ross and Lonnie Thomas and maybe both sharing this room. Vintage steel bed(s).

I’ve checked it briefly some time for my Western blog (rating 5), but don’t remember much.

Rating at least ~3-4 for now. Boys are quite young.

Bernd Benneck, around 12 or 13 yo, I think alone in this room. I think only dark lit.

Set in 1950 East Germany, but wooden bed and furniture are probably older.

Novel by Dieter Zimmer.

Great movie of the “Große Geschichten” DVD movie series (“Jokehnen”, Väter & Söhne”, “Heldenfrühling”, “Nirgendwo ist Poenichen”,”Jauche und Levkojen”). Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4. Soon on my pigtails blog.

Miguel Angel Munoz alone in this vintage looking bedroom (at his grandparents) set in 1958 Andalucia.

I found it some time ago but don’t remember much.

For the bedroom, rating 3-4 only, movie maybe a bit higher.

Comment:
Several young boys in a large typcal 1950s dorm with white metal beds. 3 or 4 rows, so around 30 beds. Catholic orphanage. Also toddlers at the beginning in higher beds and later at a hospital.

Quite interesting movie, but I think few good scenes and most boys are quite young. But there are also older, handsome boys.

So rating 3-4 only.

Aired in 1997 (IMDb wide release 1999). 2 parts (IMDb says 4 parts).

Comment:
At least 9 or 10 yo Colin Petersen in a wooden cabin, probably a single bed but also with a friend together, I think outside in the hay, but with separate sheets.

Pic 3 below is I think from Smiley Gets a Gun (1959), looks like in a hospital.

Not bad, also on my bib overalls blog (rating 6), but he don’t wear overalls but pants with suspenders.

Rating 4-5.

Comment:
Probably the 3 brothers in this bedroom. Beds aligned at 90 degrees. Starring Tye Sheridan, HunterMcCracken and Laramie Eppler.

Another one, which had been aired around Christamas. Unfortunatley, I haven’t seen it completely and mainly have checked some parts later.

Nice 1950s setting in Waco, Texas. Nominated for 3 Oscars.

Not bad, but for the bedroom, rating 4-5. I think rather few good scenes and  I don’t like this room.

Also other scenes of interest like a bathing scenes. Unfortunately no bib overalls.

Comment: Some, I think mainly younger boys at a small, private looking orphange. At least 10 beds in this room. I doubt that there are more rooms.

Comment: Several choir boys in a large dorm with typical simple 1950s metal beds.

I think, according to the plot this should be the Vienna Boys Choir (Wiener Sängerknaben), but credited as Mozart Sängerknaben. Probably only dubbed.

Few good scenes and not even Lederhosen (nor sailor suits).

Also on my bib overalls blog (woman, rating 2).

Quite poor movie and not on DVD either.

For the “bedroom” rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Kieran Culkin (Biddle, right bed) and film brother Erik von Detten, both 13 yo but Kieran is younger looking, sharing this 1950s wooden farm bedroom.

Very interesting ranch movie. I like Culkin, but not von Detten.

Also on my Western blog, rating 7 and soon on my pigtails blog.

For bedroom scenes rating 7-8 for now. Needs to be fully rechecked.

Great plot and movie. Handsome actors.

Unfortunately most of the movie is dark lit.

Rating 5-6 for this bedrooms only.
