Rating: *****
Comment: 2 boys (twins Kalle und Kulle, played by Ralf and Rolf Lemcke) sharing this room and a bird. Wooden beds, horizontally aligned next each other. Pillows on the opposite sites. Also both shown in one bed but rarely. Pic from ep 2.

Also on my Lederhosen blog (rating 9) and my bib overalls blog (rating 2).

Episodes 3+4 will be aired next Monday. Episode 4 is set 5 years later. I only have checked ep 3-4 briefly.

I don’t like the 70s and the boys are quite young (in ep 1-3) and not that handsome. But quite interesting bedroom and good family series.

Rating even 5-6.

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.

Highway to Heaven – s4e13

highwaytoheavens4e132highwaytoheavens4e13

4 orphaned brothers, 3 younger ones ~8-11 including Christian Guzek and older Michael Faustino.

No bedrooms but they sleep together in the rear of a van (pic 1). Pic 2 maybe elsewhere.

Also great jeans and fighting scenes of Christian Guzek, rating 9.

For the “bedroom” rating 3-4.

As usual, quite touching at the end (courtroom). Main overview entry

Comment:
2 brothers sharing one 1920s metal bed, also only one shown. There are more brothers, at least one more, maybe much older one (Daniel Wilson as August ?) . But not sure where he sleeps.

8 yo Alex Vincent (Child’s Play) and 15 yo Michael Bacall might share this bed.

Nice early 1920s setting, props and historical (winter) clothes.

But there are better movies. Novel by John Fante.

Rating ~4.

Comment:
At least 2 different rooms. Pic 1 with one or 2 larger beds with 2 sharing a bed. Not sure if it’s a woman on the left. In pic 2, I think 2 boys also sharing one bed. Probably not brothers. Also boys sleeping on the ground next to each other, I think outside.

Quite interesting bedrooms. But I don’t like drugs scenes of NYC. There are better movies.

Rating 3-4.

Comment:
At least 9 or 10 yo Colin Petersen in a wooden cabin, probably a single bed but also with a friend together, I think outside in the hay, but with separate sheets.

Pic 3 below is I think from Smiley Gets a Gun (1959), looks like in a hospital.

Not bad, also on my bib overalls blog (rating 6), but he don’t wear overalls but pants with suspenders.

Rating 4-5.

Update: La pietra di Marco Polo

petradimarcopolo4petradimarcopolo7petradimarcopolo6

I now have checked the complete series. There are also some few other locations, like a hospital and other kids. And 7 yo Adi also sleeps in a single bed. The best is still the orange bunk bed.

Adi usually sleeps in the lower bunk and 11 yo Malcolm in the upper bunk. The grey suits are their sleepwear.

Pic 1 from ep 18. Pic 2 from ep 12 showing Adi in the lower bunk and a single bed in the background. Pic 3 from ep 20 in the hospital. At least 4 or 6 beds in this room. Pic 4 from ep 6 showing 2 separate beds, probably in the same room like the bunk bed.

Unpictured: another great scene with the bunk bed and all in the grey sleepwear in ep 26. Adi also shirtless in white underwear (ep 21).

Also on my bib overalls blog, soon be updated once more. Main entry here, previously rating 6, but I think I have to give rating 7-8.

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:
One older teen boy and one younger boy sitting on the same bed in part 2. Not sure about their names. I think Andreas Polizia as 10 Siggi on the right? (or is it the 19 yo Siggi on the left?). I haven’t noticed a dormitory although it’s part of the plot.

I expected much more. I think, I’ve read, that the novel is much more of interest but maybe it’s a different one?

Also on my pigtails blog, rating 5 (girls and young lady).
