Comment: Obviously 2 brothers sharing a bed. Also a dorm at an boarding school  shown. Girls in a (different but very similar) dorm.  There are 5 siblings, 3 boys and 2 girls in the main family. Nice underwear and I think swim scenes.

Also 2 older boys and a man in one bed in the first movie Five Little Peppers and How they Grew.

I first found the PD novels by Margaret Sidney. Also on my bib overalls blog (little girl). and soon on my Pigtails blog.

Next to Tommy Bond there’s also (older) Ronald Sinclair starring.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: Some boys in a dorm at a prep school. 2 rows of separate steel beds. At least 10 beds in this dorm, but there must be other rooms as well (not shown ?). Few bedroom scenes. At the end also boys in one bed (one pair in opposite directions). Scenes pictured at 8 and 26 minutes.

Nice dorm and qiute good plot, rating 5-6.

I have seen and recorded this in the 90s. Nice bathtub scene. But there are better movies.

Comment: 2 twin brothers, 10 yo Lukas and Elias Schwarz sharing this white, wooden bunk bed. Also sometimes both in one bunk. Also shown a single white bed (mom ?).

Quite interesting. But I somehow I don’t like this actors. Also other scenes of interest like sharing a bathtub.

Rating ~6-(7). English title: Goodnight Mommy.

Comment: I think 5 boys sharing this room. The youngest boy has a bed for his own. 2 other wooden beds with high posts are shared by 2 boys each. On the left the 2 oldest boys (pic 1). Boys are shirtless. Pic 3 obviously showing the room of the parents. I think there are also 2 older girls, who probably have a room for their own (separate beds ?)

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 7.

5 boys in one room is quite rare. I only have one movie tagged with 6 brothers.

Nice farm setting and handsome blonde boys. Unfortunately few bedroom scenes. And 2 brothers are 18 or older.

So rating 5-6 only.

Comment:
Brad Stoll (1977-1997) and younger film brother played by Mike Damus sharing one bed /sheets, but it’s obviously rather a couch. Set in 1942.

Still quite intersting but could be better. Also nice clothes, pajamas and pants with suspenders.

Maybe also other beds shown (grown-ups).

Rating 4-5.

Comment: 2 boys (Zacharay Bennett as Felix, pic 1 and I think older Joel Blake or less likeley Miklos Perlus) sharing one bed on the right and 2 young girls in the same room sharing the left bed. One is probably Cecily, not sure if the other girl is Felicity or Sara, as I think there’s a 3rd girl later, probably Sara climbing through the window from outside.

Pics from s1e13. On pic 2 one girl is alone in one bed. The setting later changed to Montreal (pic 2 ?). Are these the same wallpapers or do they swith to Avonlea? Sorry, I missed some parts and only checked it briefly.

The 2 boys are hard to notice in the dark, (Felix on the right side behind the older boy, briefly shown). I think all are siblings except main character Sara, who I think is a cousin, visiting her aunt. Not sure where she slept. Maybe in the same room and even 3 in 1 bed?

I don’t know all episode, so needs to be rechecked more carefully, especially the later seasons. Also recently updated on my bib overalls and sailor suit blogs.

For the bedrooms at least rating 6-7. Great series. Currently on Bibel TV.

Comment: 2 brothers (identical twins), played by Niek and Freek Verstraaten, almost 12 yo with red curly hair first sharing one bed. Also later with one black girl (Lotje ?) in the middle. Later, they had to separate and sleep in different beds (same room with one separation wall). But the boy in the left bed then visited the other boy. Pics from todays s2e2 (“Unzertrennlich”, “Op avontuur”?).  There’s also a little sister who got their room.

IMdb says it’s a 2015 short film. But it’s a series. Wunschliste says series 2017-. But 2015 for this is obviously correct according arte. No entry on either Dutch nor German Wikipedia. VPRO production. “zappbios”.

I don’t like the boys, but nice plot and room. They ran away.

Coming soon: Road to Avonlea. 2 brothers and 2 sisters each sharing a bed (s1e13, same room), 1900s setting. Also recently updated on my overalls blog.

Rating: *****
Comment: Henry Thomas (1 year before film E.T., see also that entry) and younger film brother, played by Carey Hollis Jr.  sharing one bed. Looks like a wide, white metal bed with high side pieces. 1944 US farm setting. There’s also a young visitor (Eric Roberts as sailor Teddy). Not sure, where he slept. Maybe in the same room as well. But he’s not a relative. And I think not sharing the same bed.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog (rating 6) and my sailor suit blog, rating 5.

Sorry, I haven’t made better pics of the room. But obviously a typical, nice farm room.

Rating ~5-6. Movie even better.

Comment: Again 4 boys sharing one bed. But this time 2 in each direction (pic 2 heads at the foot side, obviously Buckwheat and maybe Froggy.) Other 2 are Robert Blake and maybe Happy (Mickey Laughlin). Maybe it’s the same bed than in other movies.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found many MGM Our Gang movies on facebook.

This movie also soon on my other blog, rating ~5.

Not bad, but boys are quite young, rather few scenes, so rating ~4-5.

Main overview here b&w/colorized, rating up to 6
