Adventure mini series, 13 ep
Year: 1979
Year in film: 1930s
Country: YU, D, CH
Who in bedroom: Branko 12, other
Kind of beds: same bed

Rating: 9/10
Rating: *********
Comment: 2 orphaned boys sharing one bed. I think it’s 12 yo Branko (Nedelijko Vukasovic) in the bed on the right. 1930s setting. Is this in the castle? Looks more like cave. Pic from ep. 11. I haven’t noticed other bedrooms.

Very interesting series, but mainly for Branco (also shirtless in black shorts, shiny shorts blog rating 6). And also on my sailor suit blog (historical clothes, rating 5).

I only have checked this series at high speed.

Rating 9 for now. The 2008 remake is very poor (but needs rechecking for bedrooms). I only remember the prison scene at the beginning.

Comment: Jesper Salén (main character Roland, on the right) and his older brother sharing one bed in 1920s Stockholm.

Very interesting coming-of-age movie. I could I miss this? I have still most parts on a VHS. Maybe because I mainly remembered other scenes? Many good and even funny scenes. And the 3rd movie with a tongue at frozen steel.

Of course lots of historical clothes, but I only notice a woman in a sailor dress. Boxing scenes but I think not shiny shorts.

Handsome actors. Very good movie. English titles: The Slingshot, Innocent Life.

So rating 8-9.

Comment:
Two boys, I think James Schanzer and US American Travis Kisgen (on the right) sharing one bed. Friends, not brothers and it’s not their regular bedroom but on a Castle of one of boy’s granddad.

I don’t remember the complete series, but the blonde boy is very handsome.

Rating 7 for now. But needs rechecking.

Probably worth buying on DVD, but maybe it will be rebroadcasted ?

Update: Our Gang

ourgang-cannedfishingourgang-shrimpsforaday2

Like on all my other blogs, I make an update of this great Classic series aka Little Rascals. Please note, that I don’ know/don’t remember all movies. All or most movies were also colorized. There are some few siblings and twin characters (boys), but probably not shown here as most gang members are friends. Nice night shirts.

Pic 1 is from the 1938 movie “Canned Fishing”. Spanky is in Alfalfa’s bed but he sleeps in a different bed (in the same room) earlier. Wooden beds.

Pics 2+3 are from the 1934 movie “Shrimps For a Day”. There is a larger room in an orphanage with several beds, maybe around 8? But also 3 boys sharing one bed. Metal beds.

I previously just had “When the Wind Blows” rating 3.

/2013/07/06/when-the-wind-blows-1930/

I don’t like the orphanage and prefer the beds at home. I have to check more episodes. Maybe there are bunk beds as well? Or probably a foldaway bed?

Rating 6 for these scenes.

Comment:
Zachary Bennett (Sullivan) and film brother Greg Spottiswood sharing one bed. Also at least one other location at camp with at least one, probably 2 or more bunk beds in at least one cabin. Also a tent scene (see my overalls blog).

How could I miss this? I even own the DVD for years. But I rarely watch it.

Very interesting 1930s movie also showing Zachary Bennett in underwear (short buttoned union suit), there are more, even better scenes also walking front+rear. But this blog is just about bedrooms.

I’m currently very busy and will recheck the movie more carefully, later.

For now rating even 7 for bedroom scenes. Rating 5 on my overalls blog, rating 3 on my sailor suit blog).

Update: I’ve noticed one bunk bed and 2 separate beds in the counselor’s cabin. Adding tag 4 or more in one room.

Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes ?

Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: There are two brothers in this room. 2 beds angled at 90 degrees (heads next each other). Not sure if the younger kid in the left bed is a boy but probably. On the left ist the mother. Brief scene at 15 minutes.

Also at the beginning both together in one bed or the middle of both with mom but only sitting and listening.

In total 30 minutes. Also an old woman in overalls. No entry on IMDb. Directed by Jan Urbášek.

I prefer US movies and bunk beds. But still interesting. I like angled beds.

Rating 5.

Comment:
Two gay teen boys, played by Philippe Bories and Bernard Flamain in and on one older looking metal bed. Also later in a tent.

44 minutes short film. B&w. English title “A History Without Importance”.

Quite interesting and controversial in these days. But there are lots of other and better gay themed and coming-of-age movies.

For the bed/bedroom rating 5 only.

Comment:
At least two locations of interest. At home with singel/separate beds and at an orphange with several beds in a small room. I think around 14 beds in 3 rows. 2 in the middle are vertically aligned the others horizontally. There are also 2 older persons in one bed (not sure if 2 teen boys or one woman).

I’ve heard of this movie before but somehow thought that it would a very different documentary movie or better series about teens on a ship.

Very interesting and rare dorm. Usually they have bunk beds when there are many kids in a small room.

Directed by Thierry Redler starring Jim Redler.

Rating 6-7. There are better movies.

Comment:
Several young, orphaned boys in at least 3 separate rooms which are next to each other. First some different single beds, at least 3 or 4 beds including wooden and metal ones (pic 1) then one different room to the left at least 2 or more bunk beds. Also 2 boys sharing one bed.

Interesting movie, first on my sailor suit blog (few good scenes and mainly one very young boy, rating 4). Also other scenes of interest (bathtub scene of 2 boys, 1 walking around without clothes etc). Good plot, novel by Jules Supervielle. English title: The Children Thief.

Not bad but the boys are quite young and most bedroom scenes dark lit.

So rating 5 only.

Comment:
Sergi Méndez (Marco, left) and Lucas (played by Raul and Juan del Pozo) sharing a bed (pic from ep. 1). 3 episodes a 60 minutes. Also both boys and a woman in one bed.

Not sure about the setting but looks quite modern (beds are older, however).

Rating 5-6 but I only have checked it at high speed.

For more infos and pics about this series see my overalls blog, rating 5.
