Comment: I think there are 4 boys, but I only have seen a bunk bed (or high sleeper) on the left and a separate bed. The room is too small for a 4th bed, so either on has a room for his own, or one boy is just a friend or relative.

Interesting room and scene including a changing scene, but unfortunately, I haven’t noticed any other bedroom scenes, only this one at daytime.

Rating 6. 1985 novel by Mary Wesley, so maybe set in the 80s.

Comment:
The pic showing 4 kids at least 2 boys (on the left), probably 4 boys in electric driven, horizontal foldaway beds.

The Kettle’s have 15 kids, but around 6 are grown-ups or older teens. I think some more are females (at least 4 young girls and 2 very young boys). Farm setting first (I didn’t noticed bedrooms of interest there), but here they had already moved to the house-of-the-future. There are 10 different movies (1947-1957). I still have to check most of them.

Quite interesting and my first entry of this kind of beds. One of the most famous boys is Teddy Infuhr. Some very good other scenes including jeans and overalls (partly in other movies, soon on my other blog).

Rating 5-6 for this modern bedroom. Funny and rare but I don’t like it that much.

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)

Overboard (1987)

Family film starring Goldie Hawn
Year: 1987
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: 4 brothers ~7-12
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, TV recording
Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: 4 brothers sharing this attic of this run-down cabin. The youngest boy, called Joey (Jeffrey Wiseman) on the right. Next to him is a bed with sheets which can be lifted from a distance by a cord. The oldest, overweighted brother sleeps in the 2nd from left (pajamas).

As announced this famous comedy film. Funny plot about a woman with amnesia who isn’t their real mom. Also on my overalls blog (youngest or 2nd youngest in bibs, rating 4-5, few scenes). Only this short bedroom scene of interest. Other boys are Jared Rushton and Brian Price.

Also starring Roddy McDowall and Kurt Russell as dad.

Rating 4-5 for bedroom, movie and overalls. (The overweighted boy in jeans: rating 6-7). 4 brothers in the same bedroom is quite rare. And mostly there are bunk beds. Somehow I don’t like this “bedroom”.

Who in bedroom: Tony ~13 +3 brothers
Kind of beds: separate beds

Rating: 6 /10 *
Rating: ******
Comment: At least 3 of the four brothers in one room, separate wooden beds. Young Tony Fingleton (Mitchell Dellevergin), John (13 yo Thomas Davidson), Harold Jr. (Kain O’Keeffe) and Ronald (Robert Quinn). There are also sisters, but I don’t remember seeing their rooms.

I checked this movie at highspeed and only noticed very few and short bedroom scenes. I have to check this again at slow speed. Also some good swimming scenes (1950s). Also set in the 1960s (1962) of the older teen boys. I don’t remember bedroom scenes there.

I rarely watch this movie. Rated PG-13. Though interesting setting of 1950s Brisbane and about the swimmer Tony Fingleton.

Rating 6-7 for now.
