Comment:
Dennis, obviously alone in this bedroom. Pic from s1e1. Also in pajamas on my Western blog and of course in bib overalls on my overalls blog (currently rating 3-(4)).

I don’t remember all episodes. Maybe there are also other rooms shown (of his friends) and probably parents and Mr. Wilson.

Rating ~5-6 for now. Great series. I have to check more episodes later.

Update: Also Dennis and another boy sharing one bed (or sheets) in s1e13.

Comment:
2 brothers sharing one narrow, wooden bed. I’m not sure if the other, tied persons are in the same room.

Only this very brief scene. What else to say? One boy is quite young and not handsome. There are better movies. But ti’s quite rare for brothers sharing a bed in 1992.

So rating ~3-4 only.

13 minutes, no entry on IMDb.

Comment:
2 boys sharing one bed, probably Tom on left (James A. Osmond) and younger film brother James Jarnigan as John D. Fitzgerald, who also wrote the novels.

Nice 1890s, Western-like setting and clothes, night shirt and barefooted. In pic 2 there are at least 2 beds. On the left. horizontally aligned as well are sitting 2 older boys, one probably Tom, the other maybe a friend?

Also on my bib overalls blog, soon to be updated (rating 7).

For the bedrooms rating at least 6-7.

Needs to be rechecked more carefully.

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.
