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: There are 10 kids, boys and girls set in 1952 Iowa. One kid is a toddler, one other is also very young.

I mainly checked for bib overalls scenes (see my other blog, rating 4).

Some or all (teen) girls, around 4 girls, sharing a room, not sure if also sharing a bed as pictured. I’m also not sure if the boy in pic 1 has a room for himself or if there are more rooms for his brothers. One brother coming into this room (but he could also sleep there at night). Maybe it’s not shown.

There’s also a dorm of an orphanage.

Quite interesting, but I haven’t noticed very good scenes concerning bedrooms. There are also other scenes like a bathtub scene.

Rating 4 for now.

There are 15 kids. Around half of them boys. I don’t know exactly how many. Most boys sharing one room. 2 bunk beds. Pic 1 top bunk of the left bunk bed and pic 2 showing the top bunk of the right bunk bed.2 boys sharing the lower right bunk. Makes 5 brothers in this room. There are also older boys in a different room and a toddler (sleeping at the girls and the granddad ? in one further room) Also 2 girls in 1 bed. Also a separate bed. Not sure if there are girls rooms.

I have to check the complete movie and hope for a soon broadcasting. But I prefer US movies.

There are 3 sequels (1965, 1979 and 1999, which I all have to check as well.) Directed by Fernando Palacios and the last 2 movies by Pedro Masó.

Rating 6 for now.
