Comment:
Some orphaned boys, at least 5 boys including 12 or 13 yo Nat played by Michael Caloz (“Escape From Wildcat Canyon” 1998) in night shirts in this dorm. Set in 1871. Nice pillow fight.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. But looks verys interesting. Also nice schoolhouse scenes (but probably not showing overalls) and Christmas plot.

Rating maybe 6-7 for now.

Not to be confused with the (related) Canadian TV series of the same year starring Corey Sevier, which also needs to be checked. I also have the 1940 b&w movie, which was the 2nd remake on my sailor suit blog (boy rating 3). Novel by Louisa May Alcott, sequel of Little Women.

Comment:
Some single beds but also this dorm (Scottish boarding school) with at least 8, 10 or more beds in 2 rows. Metal beds, but one in the lower row is larger and wooden. Pic 1 from s2e10 (also shown up to s2e13). Starring Simon Gipps-Kent, Peter Vaughan-Clarke and others. Pic 2 from beginning of season 1. Some more beds (future setting, space station and regular setting) like a blue room of a man (same ep like pic 2).

Very interesting series, although I don’t like the early 70s. Also nice kilts, shorts and silver coveralls. And shirtless scenes.

After finding a trailer of Thursday’s Child (soon on my sailor suit blog) starring Simon Gipps-Kent, I found this one.

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 6 for now.

Comment:
Some boys (around 20) at different ages in underwear (including tighty whiteys) in this rather small dorm, set in Buenos Aires in the 1980s. Simple, white and black metal beds. Probably the beds are even much older (1950s ?)

Quite interesting, but I prefer other movies and don’t like much dorms.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Title means Black Cat.

Comment:
At least 4 metal bunk beds at an orphange. Girls but also boys (not sure if in the same room). Also a boy at home in a wooden bed.

Novels (1966-1989) by Marjatta Kurenniemi, English title: Jill, Joy and the Mysterious Stranger. Not sure about the time setting. Might appear very modern and colorful, but probably set in the 1970s? Or a mix (timeless plot)

Quite interesting, but I prefer wooden bunk beds.

Rating 4-5 only.

Also soon on my bib overalls nlog (girls, women, rating ~4).

Comment:
At least 4 simple and very narrow, wooden bunk beds in a small dorm. Older teen boys and not very handsome. Pic from episode 2. Obviously still set in 1944 in Berlin.

I don’t like this series and expected much more. I even own the novel (but part 1) by Georg Lentz.

I like bunk beds, but there are better ones. Very few good scenes.

So rating (3)-4 only.

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:
At least one, simple wooden bunk bed and also at least 3 more separate beds (not sure if in the same room but probably). 2 beds are wooden as well, one bed is a simple guest bed out of steel. Is this inside the hotel Nautilus? There’s also a plot of a summer camp outside and a tree house and 2 kid gangs.

There are maybe 2 brothers (regular) sleping in the bunk bed. Some other beds are probably taken from other rooms.

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie. English title: I Didn’t Do It!

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 6) and soon on my shiny shorts blog, rating ~5.

I like bunk beds, but I think few good bedroom scenes if any.

So rating 5-6 only.

Update: Les allumettes suédoises

allumettessuedoises-n3allumettessuedoises-n2

I have rechecked the complete series (rating 8).

Next to the great scene of Olivier and his Jewish friend David sharing one bed, there are also dorm scenes in ep 1 and ep 3 (ep 3 pictured). At least 12, probably some more beds in the dorm. Episode 1 has only or mainly dark scenes.

Also now on my bib overalls blog (rating 2, in fact an old man only but Olivier and a woman in blue aprons). Also soon on my pigtails blog.

German Wikipedia says 12 yo Olivier in 1932, French Wikipedia says 10 yo in 1930. Maybe in the novel only? Actor is 14 and/or 15.

Great series, main entry
