Comment: I think 5 boys sharing this room. The youngest boy has a bed for his own. 2 other wooden beds with high posts are shared by 2 boys each. On the left the 2 oldest boys (pic 1). Boys are shirtless. Pic 3 obviously showing the room of the parents. I think there are also 2 older girls, who probably have a room for their own (separate beds ?)

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 7.

5 boys in one room is quite rare. I only have one movie tagged with 6 brothers.

Nice farm setting and handsome blonde boys. Unfortunately few bedroom scenes. And 2 brothers are 18 or older.

So rating 5-6 only.

Comment:
At least 4 bunk beds in one small dorm at an orphanage or foster home. Vertically aligned on one row. At least one bed on the left is out of white metal. Others are different and brown and some might be (partly) wooden, I first thought, but might be wrong. Starring Wil Wheaton as 8 yo Donald.

I found this by coincidence on YouTube but only noticed one brief scene.

Sorry, no better pics.

Rating ~3-4. Typical drama of it’s kind. There are better movies. Not sure about the time setting. Might be (much) earlier. Probably the 60s or 70s. Timothy Hutton played the adult Donald.

Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.

Comment:
Johnny Whitaker (on left) and younger Scott C. Kolden (probably brothers in the series) obviously sharing this room with a wooden bunk bed. Pic from s1e8. Scott in green underwear (walking, sitting and rear view). Also a good bedroom scene in s1e12. I don’t know all episodes, but I noticed only very few scenes. So I don’t know who has which bunk.

I don’t like Whitaker, but Kolden is very handsome. Although I don’t like the 70s. I found this by coincidence during research for my Pigtails blog (Pamelyn Ferdin, this series coming soon there.)

There’s also a 2016 remake, but I haven’t checked that one, yet.

Rating 7-8.

Year in film: ~1969 ?
Country: France, Italy
Who in bedroom: boys ~10-12 ?
Kind of beds: dorm, separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Some boys in a dorm with separation walls. The black boy (Claude Amazan as main character) sleeping on the floor (also later in a wooden bed). I don’t remember if it’s at a different location. Pic 1 looks like an (unusual) dorm, maybe a modern orphanage. But the plot is about a summer camp. Probably no bunk beds.

Sorry, I’ve checked this some time ago. I don’t like the late 60s and early 70s. Typical movie. Also on my pigtails blog.

Rating 3-4 for the bedrooms.

Comment:
Around 3 beds (or are there 2 rows ?) in this small dorm. Starring Scott Baio. Pic from ep “Luke Was There” aired in 1977 (s2e1). 47 minutes (but YouTube clip is just 32 minutes). I think the room is a larger hall (no wallpapers), with wall separators and a corridor on the left. So in fact there are more beds.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found several rare TV movie from LCA (The Learning Company) and similar.

1973 novel by Eleanor Clymer. Set in NY.

Rating 7. I have to search for more episodes. I don’t like much the 70s but interesting room, setting, plot and actors.

Comment:
Nice, colorful late 70s room. Not sure who sleeps here. Maybe the teen boy on the left? Not sure about his name. I think 1 bed only but large. Or 12 yo Alicia Fleer (in orange shirt) or even 5 yo Tommy Crebbs . But they are living in a caravan. And it looks more like a room for an older boy (plane).

I only have checked this briefly, needs to be rechecked. Not availyble on DVD.

Rating 6-7 for now. Interesting movie.

There’s also a very young girl in skirtalls (bib overalls blog, rating 2).

Comment:
One teen boy, probably Michael Eric Kramer in this bedroom. I think no sibling? I only have checked this briefly. Maybe there are also other rooms shown?

I don’t like much the 70s, but it’s an interesting room and cult movie of the late 70s. Needs to be rechecked more carefully.

Rating ~6 for now.

Also on my bib overalls blog, recently updated, rating 5 (m,f).

Comment:
Peter and Eva Hagenbäume (brother and sister in real life) I think sharing this room. Beds maybe horizontally aligned, also both shown sitting on the same bed. Nice pajamas scenes and other scenes of interest (swimming, bathtub).

Needs to be rechecked.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl rating 3). Novel by Ann Ladiges. Now available on DVD.

For the bedroom rating 4-5 for now (although I don’t like the 70s).

Rating: *****
Comment: 2 boys (twins Kalle und Kulle, played by Ralf and Rolf Lemcke) sharing this room and a bird. Wooden beds, horizontally aligned next each other. Pillows on the opposite sites. Also both shown in one bed but rarely. Pic from ep 2.

Also on my Lederhosen blog (rating 9) and my bib overalls blog (rating 2).

Episodes 3+4 will be aired next Monday. Episode 4 is set 5 years later. I only have checked ep 3-4 briefly.

I don’t like the 70s and the boys are quite young (in ep 1-3) and not that handsome. But quite interesting bedroom and good family series.

Rating even 5-6.
