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

Rating: *******
Comment: There are 3 brothers, Tom (Hart Bochner, shirtless), David (14 or 15 yo Michael-James Wixted) and Andrew (Brad Savage, “Salem’s Lot”, “The Apple Dumpling Gang”), the younger boys in pajamas. They are sharing this room / cabin, (maybe on a ship but I don’t think so), more likely at a primitive beach house. Sorry, I don’t remember.

Nice pillow fight. Set in 1940 and/ or a bit earlier. Also at least David and Tom shirtless in swim shorts, including sitting and underwater scenes. (Shiny shorts blog, rating 4)

1970 novel by Hemingway. Oscar nominated.

Interesting scenes but movie needs to be fully rechecked.

Rating 7-8 for now.

Update: Also on a boat and another location. The final part is unfortunatly missing on YouTube. But I doubt even better scenes there.

Country: UK
Who in bedroom: Ken, Janey, Haley, Steve ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: s1+2

Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
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: I think there are three brothers including 9 yo Coutland Mead as blind Hap and 2 older boys (12 yo Cody McMains as Billy and 13 yo Trevor O’Brien, brother of Austin as Gordy) and one 15 yo sister (Ashlee Lauren as Faith). Sorry, I’ve read that too late, so I don’t know exactly who is in this room. Nice wooden old bunk bed.

I assume that the 3 brothers sharing a room, so there must be a separate bed. Or another bunk bed or room. Ranch setting, I think mainly in the (late) 1950s (as pictured). Starring Richard Thomas as dad. 1988 novel by Susan Vreeland.

Also on my overalls blog (Mead, rating 4).

Rating 6 for now for this bedroom. Needs to be rechecked. Idon’t like Mead here. The older boys are probably more of interest.

Comment:
There are (at least) 3 boys, probably brothers in this room. The 2 pictured from a colorful red metal bunk bed and an older teen boy, shirtless on the right in a separate bed.

I found a very short clip, showing the younger boy picking up a sticky paper handkerchief from the floor and holding it to the nose of the other boy pictured.

I don’t know the title and can’t say anything more. Might be Spanish, Mexican or similar or even just Spanish dubbed.

Who knows the title? Maybe from the 1990s (or even late 80s or early 2000s ?) Looks rather like a TV series or maybe even just a commercial?

Rating 6 for now.

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.

Comment:
There are 45 episodes but rather few good bedroom scenes. Most siblings are  I think in ep 43. 2 sisters and 3 brothers. The 2 girls, around 9 yo sharing a room (pic 3) and painted a boarder in the middle of the room including a table. Wooden beds, the sheets of the other bed are blue. The room of the boys (Benny, Hannes, Matthias, 2 around 10, 1 around 7) is shown briefly (pic 2). Not sure if all 3 sharing this room, probably at least 2.

Pic 1 is from ep 16 showing a boy without siblings. One more pic of a girl’s bedroom on my overalls blog. Ep 44 showing a wooden high sleeper. I think also a young brother and sister sharing one room. Most kids are very young anyway and boys are longhaired. Many wear corduroy pants.

I like the 80s but rather few scenes of interest. So rating 5 only. Many overalls scenes (rating 7), some very handsome boys and other good scenes (Lederhosen, speedos, shirtless, shiny shorts…)

Who in bedroom: Charles ~7, boys 8-12 ?
Kind of beds: bunk bed + separate ?
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: Has been aired last Christmas. Probably David Dorfman in the lower bunk of this  dark brown, wooden bunk bed. Not sure who sleeps in the upper bunk. First I thought of older film sister Katie Stuart, but there seems to be 2 more young twin brothers (I haven’t noticed them), Thomas and 12 yo Munro Chambers. So probably rather the 2 or 3 brothers in one room. Also starring Gregory Smith (“Small Soldiers”).

Typical Sci-Fi movie. Very few and short bedroom scenes.

So rating 3-4 only. I missed some scenes. 2 part mini series. 251 minutes. 1963 time travelling novel by Madeleine L’Engle. In the novel Charles is 5 yo and the twins 10 yo. Meg (played by Katie Stuart) sleeping in an attic bedroom (probably alone).

Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: I think there are three brothers usually sharing a room (Adi, the youngest, played by 6-7 yo Nicola Di Pol is credited as girl on IMDb but is a boy). Some sources say that there are 5 siblings but I think Valerio is just a friend. An orange steel bunk bed and at least one separate bed in a large room. Pic 1 from ep 19, pic 2 from ep 23.

Also 4 in one double bed under one blanket, not sure if this is their sister, I do think so.

Unfortunately this series ist still not released officially on DVD, so I only have seen some few episodes available on YouTube. Maybe other bedroom constellations, locations (ship) or other actors later.

Very good series, my favourite is Malcolm (Sebastiano Marescalchi), also shirtless, see my overalls and Lederhosen blog (tag unknown). Adi also in beige overalls (rating 4).

Rating 6-7. Dorm entries coming next.

Rating: ******
Comment: Three brothers, played by Harley Cross (Dan), Jesse Bradford (Mike) and J.D. Daniels. One brown wooden bunk bed (boys drinking beer here) and later probably a different room with a white single bed. I haven’t noticed bedrooms at the boarding school or hospital (or is that pic 1?). Then the other beds/bedrooms are missing/not shown.

Interesting movie, there’s even a 2007 sequel but I haven’t seen that one and this only at high speed.

Rating 5-6. I don’t remember good/other scenes at the bedroom like at night.

There’s a VHS (OOP). A company selling DVDr (not sure about that (image) quality).
