Comment: From my Lederhosen blog (rating 9+). I almost forgot to post it here as well. Oscar Brose as 12 yo main character and probably his younger film sister, played by Magdalena Matz sharing this 1960s room.

Nothing special and few bedroom scenes. Wooden lower beds, angled at 90 degrees and ugly wallpapers.

For bedroom rating 3-4 only. Much higher for the movie itself.

For more infos see my other blog. Partly b&w. Also starring Peter Lohmeyer.

Comment: Jonathan Kahn in this interesting attic bedroom. No siblings. Wooden bed.

Very interesting movie with some strange scenes. I still have it completely on one of my last VHS. 1963 novel by Yukio Mishima. Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.

I don’t like to 70s nor the 60s. And no siblings.

So for the bedroom, rating 5-6 only. Plot/movie rating8-9.

Comment:
2 boys, in a steel bunk bed. 28 minutes. Scene at 14 minutes. Discussion with many, mostly older teen boys and girls. I don’t know how many beds in each room. I only have seen one.

As announced another documentary, I found on archive.org. National Film Board of Canada, about the English school in Leiston/Suffolk after 45 years of foundation.

I don’t like the late 60s and early 70s. But it’s quite interesting. Rating 5.

No entry on IMDb. Full movie at

Comment:
I think this is 12 yo Francesco Bonelli as 10 (and 14 yo ?) Eugenio. Different locations and rooms. Pic 1 maybe still set in Rome maybe a room for his own. I think he also has a sister. Pic 2 showing him and I think Dalila Di Lazzaro sharing a room with metal beds.

Sorry, I’m very busy and don’t remember the complete movie. I think I even haven’t seen it recently. Some other scenes of interest like tighty whiteys.

I found this several days ago on my neverending search for the unknown Italian coming-of-age movie. For more about that movie and also more movies by Luigi Comencini (up to rating 10 like Cuore (1984)) see my sailor suit blog.

Rating 5-6 for now for this one. Obviously no brothers and no bunk beds. But probably a very interesting movie.

Comment:
Brandon Cruz (“Kung Fu (1972)”, The Bad News Bears 1976) pictured in this room. Not sure if this is his bedroom or his father’s. The bed appears quite large and more for a grown-up. I also don’t know what episode is this from. Maybe from season 3 where he was 9 yo but might be earlier. No siblings but there’s also a 7 yo girl (Jody Foster).

Based on the 1963 movie starring red haired, young Ron Howard as Eddie (see previous post, rating 3).

Also on my sailor suit blog showing Jody Foster in a sailor dress (rating 3).

Sorry, I can’t say much more and have to check more episodes.

Rating 5 for now.

Comment:
Ronnie Howard sleeps in this room with a wooden bed. Dart board on the right wall. More famous is maybe his dad’s room where he’s on the double bed in red/white pajamas and also shirtless (11 minutes). Later in blue/white pajamas. Scene at 3 minutes.

Quite good and funny classic movie but Ron Howard is very young here. And unfortunatley no siblings. I think few and brief scenes where he is in this bed. So rating 3-4 only.

I found a pic dark lit and in the movie I only found a close-up view and a side view (42 minutes). But this blog is about the rooms and not beds or headshots.

There’s also a 1969-1972 TV series starring Brandon Cruz and Jodie Foster (Sailor suit blog rating 3 for Jodie). Entry here coming soon.

Comment:
Some younger boys (including Singer Angelito (Ángel Gómez Mateo) as Pachínin) in this dorm in metal bunk beds. Grown up’s, 2 men in a different room in seperate non-bunk metal beds.

I don’t know the complete movie. Many scenes are set on a small ship with the boys in white sailor suits (sailor suit blog rating 5) but I think this dorm is not on the ship.

I’m also not sure about the amount of bunk beds and rooms. Looks like at least 6 bunk beds here.

Quite interesting and I like bunk beds. Some handsome boys.

But rating 6-7 for now only. Movie in color would maybe better.

Comment:
Buddy Foster in this bedroom. Sorry, no better pics. I think he doesn’t have siblings. There are other kid actors and I thought one younger boy is his brother but is just a friend, Harold, played by Richard Steele in 9 episodes. Pics from s3e5.

Another great early 70s series. And a handsome blond boy actor.

I don’t know all season. Maybe there are other rooms shown as well.

Spin off of The Andy Griffith Show (starring Ron Howard who also starred here in one episode) rating 6 b&w.

Buddy Foster also starred in Hondo (1967), Western blog, rating 7.

Comment:
Several older teen boys including 17 yo Louis Hofmann in a dorm(s) with lots of white metal bunk beds in an Christian educational institution.

Also starring Max Riemelt.

I don’t like the 1960s and 70s and prefer US movies and wooden bunk beds. Most actors are also quite old icluding Louis Hofmann (he was great in earlier movies like Tom Sawyer in 2011). But I haven’t seen the complete movie, yet.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment:
The main character is Zeze, almost 6 yo, he has 4 brothers and some older sisters. At least one brother is much younger. I only have seen 3 beds in this room. But I only have checked it briefly.

There are also 3 TV series (1970, 1980, 1998) and a 2012 movie. Partly called O Meu Pé de Laranja Lima, English title My Sweet Orange Tree. 1968 autobiographical novel by José Mauro de Vasconcelos. The setting is probably in the present and not in the 1920s (some props are modern, others old).

I have to check the other movies as well.
