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:
2 brothers in the 1982 episode s4e6 (pic 1, I think Sammy Snyders around 15 yo (“Huckleberry Finn and His Friends (1979)“, rating 8) on the left and a younger film brother, maybe Mark Polley on the right.

I haven’t checked all episodes, yet. But I like this wooden room and this is the best, I’ve found yet. I hope to find some more rooms. Bunk beds? Girls? More siblings?

Pic 2 showing boys at a hospital in s1e22. At least 4 or more likely 6 beds. I only remember these 2 boys. Other beds maybe empty?

Officially on DVD only seasons 1-2.

Also (soon) on all my other blogs (except sailor suits), rating mostly 8-9.

Rating 9-10 for now. For more infos, see my other blogs.

Comment:
Some orphaned Soccer boys in this dorm. Some boys sitting on the beds (even at least 5 sitting on one bed), some shirtless in shorts. Maybe around 12 beds. Dorm looking quite unusual, almost like a living room at the other angle.

Several good shiny shorts scenes including boys in pink. (Rating 8 on my other blog).

Rating 6-7 for this dorm. Nice 80s movie I found by searching for all 1983 movies on IMDb.

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:
Several boys in this boarding school (I think also shirtless) in a quite large large, nice 1950s dorm. Not sure if there are more dorms. At least 2 rows (or maybe 3) of white metal beds horizontally aligned, separated by low cupboards. There are also tables and high cupboards in the room.

I like classics and this is much better than the remakes. I think rather few scenes in the middle of the movie. I have few entries about boarding schools, especially with early settings. The novel is set even earlier but the plot is timeless and always set in the presence.

Also on my Lederhosen blog (rating 4) and my pigtails blog (boy, rating 8).

Rating 6-7 for this dorm.

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!

Comment:
Some, mainly (older) teen boys at camp in separate beds. I don’t remember bunk beds, which are more common in camp movies. There’s also a room of teen girls shown.

Also several good shiny shorts scenes (f,m), shiny shorts blog rating (8)-9 including one boy around 10 yo.

Rating 5-6 for the “bedroom” scenes. Some funny scenes and prank there. But I prefer brothers and bunk beds.

Great 80s movie though. Unfortunately few scenes of young boys and expensive as uncut DVD/BD.

I still have to check the sequels. Very good bunk beds and shirtless boys in “Return to Sleepaway Camp” (2008), coming soon.

Some, mainly older teen boys at Summer camp in this room with primitive wooden bunk beds. I think few good scenes.

So rating 5-6 for now only.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 6.

There are much better camp movies.

Comment:
At least this dorm in 1944 or the early 1940s. Obviously mainly older teen boys or even men here. Probably also other rooms (of girls, young boys and toddlers) as well.

I don’t know the complete movie yet and found it by coincidence by searching for another movie. Starring Ivo Pietzcker (“Jack”, 2014 now with very short hair), also starring David Bennent.

I don’t like this dorm nor the 40s.

So rating 3 for now only for bedroom scenes. Also soon on my pigtails blog (rating ~4).

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
