Comment: There are at least 2 simple, wooden bunk beds in this large bedroom, but (according to Wikipedia) the family consists of just 3 older teen kids, I think Ken (Ashley Knight ~20 yo, oldest kid), Janey (black teen girl Lola Young) and Haley (Lucinda Bateson). Maybe one bed is empty? Or the 4th bed is owned by Steve (20 yo Gary Shail ?)

Haley also in tight, light blue bib overalls, other blog rating 5.

Unusual large and quite interesting bedroom. Older teen kids and bother and sister sharing one room. Could be worse.

For bedroom, rating 4-5. Partly available on DVD.

Comment: At least 5, maybe 6 or 7 bunk beds in this girls’ room of this boarding school. At least one on the opposite side (right) next some lockers. There are also boys in this boarding school shown, but I haven’t noticed any other dorm. Probably the others look the same. Primitive bunk beds (metal ?).

Has been aired today. The first half is quite good, also showing boys and girls in swimwear (soon on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4). And girls in pigtails (other blog, rating 6).

But besides that, the movie is quite poor and there are several other movies with this plot of the twins.

For bedrooms rating 3-4 only.

Happy Easter!

Comment:
180 city teens of LA at a mountain camp. 60 minutes. Very simple, selfmade wooden bunk beds. I think mainly older teens. Not sure if more than 2 bunk beds in each room/cabin. Maybe 4?

I found this (and one other) nice documentary on archive.org.

No entry on IMDb (but on tcm).

I only have checked it briefly.

Rating 6-7.

Comment:
Some boys and teen boys at Summer camp in dorms with these white metal bunk beds. I think at least 2 rows, so maybe 6 or 8 bunk beds (in each room).

Also on my shiny shorts blog with very good scenes of boys wearing shiny shirts including Adidas, some shirtless (rating 7).

The bunk beds are probably older and look like (Western European) 1950s beds.

Interesting series but I can’t give any rating higher than 5 or 6 for these beds.

Comment:
Some, mainly younger teen boys shirtless at a summer camp. At least 2 or maybe 4 bunk beds in one cabin and I think 2 more separate beds (at least in some and/ or in one of the girls cabins). At least 3 or 4 boys in one room what would be quite few.

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie and have to recheck it.

Maybe not as famous as the 1980s original movie (rating 5), but at least nice wooden bunk beds and shirtless scenes and obviously a good horror movie to me. The other sequels still needs to be checked.

So rating 7 for now.

Next post in January.

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers!

Update: Chiquititas (1995)

chiquititas1995-nb2chiquititas1995-nb3

Searching for Chiquititas Brasil (1997) for my overalls blog, I stumbled by coincidence again into this original Argentinian series and found some very interesting new bunk beds. As usual interesting and very colorful.

Pic 1 is from ep 81 in 1998. Boys room and wooden red bunk beds like London buses.

Pic 2 a green room I think of the girls. Same episode. Metal bunk beds green/blue. At least 2 bunk beds and at least one separate bed. Probably not more in this smal room.

Rating 9 for now. Still needs to be checked later.

Main entry, previously rated 3

Chiquititas Brasil, rating 7 for now at least 7 girls in one room and around the same amount for the boys

Comment:
This is series about an orphanage with at least 5 boys (maybe some or all are brothers ?) sharing one room in season 3 with 2 blue bunk beds and one separate bed. Also at least 6 girls sharing another room (pic 2, ep 120).

There are hundreds of episodes and I only have checked some few of them, mainly 1998 and 1999 for my overalls blog (f/m, rating 6 for now). There are also other locations with single beds. Some bunk beds are maybe in wall niches (at least in the original series). Material unknown. Some bunk beds seems to be out of wood. Last pic rather metal?

Pic 1 is from s3e61. Pic 3 from an unknown episode, probably season 3 as well. That room is very large.

There are also many other Chiquititas series in different countries (originally from Argentina, rating 3) and also a modern 2013 Brasilian series. More posts coming soon.

Rating even 7-8 for now.

Update: Lockie Leonard

lockieleonard2

Almost in every episode there are Lockie and his younger brother Phillip shown in their colorful, green yellow 70s style bedroom (rating 10).

In ep s1e20 there is a camp scene with bunk beds. 4 bunk beds are visible, simple wooden bunk beds and 2 out of metal (behind Geoffrey aka Egg there’s another wooden bunk bed). Probably there are 4 more bunk beds on the opposite wall in this room.

Unfortunatley no scenes at night. But still quite interesting. Rating 6 for this. Good and funny and some dramatic plots. Also see my overalls blog (rating 5).There’s also the pink room of Vicki shown.

Main entry here, rating 10

/2013/01/10/lockie-leonard/

Update 2: Good scenes also of Egg’s room (purple, black, white with speakers and egg boxes on the wall) and Vicki’s pink room in s1e26 or 25.

Comment:
First 2 boys, around 13+10 yo obviously in a train in 2 opposite bunk beds each in the upper bunk (pic from ep 4), pic 2 showing a shirtless (or more) boy, around 10 yo in a regular bedroom (ep 2) and pic 3 showing a young girl in another room (ep 3).

Also a handicapped boy in bib overalls (overalls blog rating 3), boys and men in long sailor suits (soon on my other blog, rating 5). Also other scenes of interest like swimming scenes.

I think this is my first post about bunk beds in a train (I only have ships).

Quite interesting and also handsome boys. But as usual rather few good bedroom scenes.

Russian title “Если завтра в поход” aka Esli zavtra v pokhod.

Rating 6.

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.
