Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: 2 brothers (identical twins), played by Niek and Freek Verstraaten, almost 12 yo with red curly hair first sharing one bed. Also later with one black girl (Lotje ?) in the middle. Later, they had to separate and sleep in different beds (same room with one separation wall). But the boy in the left bed then visited the other boy. Pics from todays s2e2 (“Unzertrennlich”, “Op avontuur”?).  There’s also a little sister who got their room.

IMdb says it’s a 2015 short film. But it’s a series. Wunschliste says series 2017-. But 2015 for this is obviously correct according arte. No entry on either Dutch nor German Wikipedia. VPRO production. “zappbios”.

I don’t like the boys, but nice plot and room. They ran away.

Coming soon: Road to Avonlea. 2 brothers and 2 sisters each sharing a bed (s1e13, same room), 1900s setting. Also recently updated on my overalls blog.

Comment: Again 4 boys sharing one bed. But this time 2 in each direction (pic 2 heads at the foot side, obviously Buckwheat and maybe Froggy.) Other 2 are Robert Blake and maybe Happy (Mickey Laughlin). Maybe it’s the same bed than in other movies.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found many MGM Our Gang movies on facebook.

This movie also soon on my other blog, rating ~5.

Not bad, but boys are quite young, rather few scenes, so rating ~4-5.

Main overview here b&w/colorized, rating up to 6

Comment:
3 boys and 2 girls sharing one larger bed (or 2 put together), but with separate sheets or sleeping bags.

I think there are are also other bedrooms/beds shown (of the grown ups).

Rather few good (bedroom) scenes.

So rating 2-3 only.

Also bib overalls including snow overalls (other blog rating 3) and other scenes of interest. Soon on my pigtails blog.

Update: Stapelbed (Villa Achterwerk)

stapelbed1989

I finally found my tape and added this pic to it’s entry.

There were even much more kids in this bunk bed: 13. Many headshots. Kids are quite young ~8-10 yo.

Kids (boys and girls in pajamas and other nightwear) entering this rare bed, one at a time. Then they talk about one subject and their feelings. At the end there’s a pillow fight, also to the lower bunk, and a male voice says, that they should stop or he comes upstairs. Should be the dad?

VPRO production. Just in 1989.

Main entry, rating 5

Comment: 2 sisters usually in a wooden bunk bed. But also later together with a boy (brother) in his bed (I think located in the same room).

Looks like the bunk bed in the 1982 series Spuk im Hochhaus (2 brothers, rating 4). Usually, I like bunk beds, but I don’t like the young girls and prefer US movies.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girls, rating 4).

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Still quite interesting. I have few entries about sisters and brother+sisters.

Update: Our Gang

ourgang-cannedfishingourgang-shrimpsforaday2

Like on all my other blogs, I make an update of this great Classic series aka Little Rascals. Please note, that I don’ know/don’t remember all movies. All or most movies were also colorized. There are some few siblings and twin characters (boys), but probably not shown here as most gang members are friends. Nice night shirts.

Pic 1 is from the 1938 movie “Canned Fishing”. Spanky is in Alfalfa’s bed but he sleeps in a different bed (in the same room) earlier. Wooden beds.

Pics 2+3 are from the 1934 movie “Shrimps For a Day”. There is a larger room in an orphanage with several beds, maybe around 8? But also 3 boys sharing one bed. Metal beds.

I previously just had “When the Wind Blows” rating 3.

/2013/07/06/when-the-wind-blows-1930/

I don’t like the orphanage and prefer the beds at home. I have to check more episodes. Maybe there are bunk beds as well? Or probably a foldaway bed?

Rating 6 for these scenes. More movies:

Night ‘n’ Gales (1937) 4 boys and 1 man in one bed, colorized, rating 4

Farm Hands (1943) 4 boys in one bed, rating 4 b&w

Yours, Mine and Ours (1968)

yoursmineandours1968

Comedy film starring Henry Fonda
Year: 1968
Year in film: 1960s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: boys. Girls
Kind of beds: bunk beds + separate
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Like in the 2005 remake there are in total 18 kids (I think 7 brothers and 11 sisters, in the novel there are 20 kids (8 boys) in 8 rooms, 3 stories), but not in one room. About 3 of them look grown-up and about 4 are very young. Most famous kids are 11 yo Mitch Vogel (Bonanza) and 7 yo Eric Shea.

I don’t know the complete movie. According to a time chart there are at least 5 letter-coded bedrooms for half of the kids. So in total around 8 rooms.

Jean and Veronica sharing room A (maybe more here), Mary and Gerald room C, Tommy and Phillip room D, Germaine, Teresa and Joan room E. Rest 9 including the room with the 2 bunk beds. Rest 5. So probably 2 or 3 more rooms makes 7-8 rooms + 1 for the parents.

At least 2 wooden bunk beds in one room. Obviously 2 older girls and 2 older boys sharing the room with the bunk beds. I don’t know how the other rooms look like and if there are more bunk beds. In one scene 3 young kids (at least 2 girls) entering the parents’ bed.

I hope for a soon broadcasting but obviously there are no more than 4 or maybe 5 in one room. I can only say for sure of 3 girls sharing one room and also 2 boys. In the remake there are at least 4 brothers sharing a room.

Rating 7 for now.

Kind of beds: bunk bed + single

Rating: 8/10
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 more separate, probably 2 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. Adi sleeps in a different, single bed here. So there’s one other boy. Still not sure about the kid with curly hair on the right. Either the sister or another boy (guests).

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.

Update: Now completetly checked. Previously rated 6, now 8. Also some few other locations.

Comment: Different locations. And from 2 to many kids. In total 18 kids. But not in one room. I think at least 8 rooms. Some kids are older teens (pic 3). The main location is a 2 story house with a lighthouse in it. This is a remake from the 1968 movie, I have to check as well. How could I miss them? I thought, I already had this but it was “Der Typ, 13 Kinder & Ich”.

Pic 1 showing at least 2 light blue bunk beds. A boy as boy scout in the lower bunk. So I think only 4 boys here. (Wooden light blue bunk beds also in the 1968 movie).

Pic 2 only 2 boys at a different location at the beginning of the movie.

Pic 4 showing 5 younger kids (boys+girls) in one room. At least one wooden bunk bed and a separate one. Maybe not even all sleeping in that room. And I haven’t seen any more than 5 in a bedroom.

Unpictured: 2 older teen girls sharing a room (similar to pic 3). Also 2 younger boys sharing one bed (at different orientations like in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days).

Brief scenes of the most interesting room (pic 1). But still interesting film of a large family and different rooms.

One scene with 6 young kids + 2 parents in one bed.

Rating 5-6 only.

Update: I made an entry for the 1968 movie (rating 7)
