Farm film during WWII starring Sissy Spacek
Year: 1981
Year in film: 1944
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Harry 9, Henry ~6
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 ?
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: Jeremy Miliker, I think alone in this room with a low, obviously selfmade blue high sleeper.

Has been aired on Christmas.

Also on my bib overalls blog (pregnant woman rating 3).

For the bedroom rating ~3-4 for now. I missed the 2nd half of the movie. The boy is quite young. Interesting bed and room though.

Who in bedroom: Georgie ~7, John ~8, Anabel ~8 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: not yet
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: 2 brothers and one sister sharing this room (Nathanael Saleh, Joel Dawson and Pixie Davis). Set in the 1930s as this is a sequel to the 1964 classic (which is set in the 1910s, no entry yet). Nice pajamas and short, white union suits.

New in cinemas. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5 for now.

I often prefer the classics. But probably a nice, but typical modern family film.

Kids are quite young. At least another brother/sister entry.

Rating ~4 for now.

Happy Christmas to all may readers!

Comment: I think Sasha Mylanus in this attic bedroom. He also has a sister, probably with a room for her own.

Has just been aired. Nice, but typical Dutch movie. I don’t like this boy.

But nice colors. English titles: The Amazing Wiplala, Help! I’ve Shrunk the Family.

Rating ~4-5.

Also today in Die Pfefferkörner: 2 black brothers sharing one bed (s15e7).

Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
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

Comment:
Either Felix (Edouard Tremblay-Grenier) or less likely Alexandre (Alfred Poirier) in this bedroom. I think there’s only one bed and they are friends? Felix has an older brother (probably with an own room). The rooms seems very small. Needs to be rechecked.

The room is nothing special. The plot seems interesting. Some nice scenes (tighty whiteys, crossdressing, shiny shorts). Earlier on my shiny shorts blog, rating 7.

For the bedroom rating 3-4 only. Set in Montréal.

Directed by Philippe Lesage from Quebec. English title: The Demons.

I think it’s the bedroom of a single teen boy. Not exactly sure of whom. Maybe 15 yo Canadian Graham Verchere (pic 1).

Also a young lady in shortalls (other blog rating 3).

More infos there.

For the bedroom rating 3-4. Although I like the 80s.

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, played by Frederick Koehler and Talesin Jaffe (as blonde Kenny, right bed) in this, mostly messy room and a bed styled like a car. Also a toddler girl, maybe also sharing this room? There are also other views like side view and bird’s eye (tidy room). Good colors. Blue sheets fit great.

How could I miss this nice 80s movie?

Also soon on my shiny shorts (grown-ups ~ rating 3), Western (boy) and overalls blogs (toddler, boy, man).

There’s also an interesting bathtub scene and maybe more good and funny scenes.

For the bedroom, rating 6-7.
