Rating: *****
Comment: 15 yo Ian played by Luke Klein and some older teen boys sharing camp huts. One hut has at least one wooden bunk bed and one separate bed. I don’t remember the complete movie. I think very few bunk scenes. Maybe bunks with 2 or even more bunk beds.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 6.

Typical camp film and only one younger boy. There are better (camp) movies.

So for the bedroom rating ~5-6 only.

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: One boy, maybe Jean-Carl Boucher, I think first alone in this nice 80s bedroom. Quite good family film starring the 11 yo director Ricardo Trogi (played by Jean-Carl Boucher). Also bird’s eye view.

At the end at least 4 or 5 shown in one bed but camera moves and not showing them all at once. Maybe a composition and each sleeps in his own bed?

Interesting movie, also on my bib overalls blog, rating 3 (boy instead of girl) and on my shiny shorts blog (f,m, rating 4).

For the bedroom rating ~5-6.

Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Jackie Cooper, I think alone in this bedroom. 1900s wooden bed with high posts. But I think set in the presence, 1930s (or 20s). Based on the comics (1923-1945). First, I wasn’t sure about the setting due to the clothes and costumes, but there’s a 1930s car shown.

Only two good scenes of this room at the beginning. Nice dressing scene.

Also on my overalls and sailor suit blog (other boys).

For the bed(room) rating ~5.

Rating: ******
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.

Rating: *****
Comment: Sammy Snyders probably alone in this room. I think 1980s setting but the wooden bed with the high posts looks much older. ~1900s?

The character should be 12 yo but he was 14 when filmed. So in 1979, maybe just before “Huckleberry Finn and His Friends” or in between. Nice bedroom and movie, but I think no siblings. So rating ~4-5 for the bedroom only.

He also starred in these movies here

Comment:
Sebastian Rice-Edwards as 9 yo Bill and his film sister (Geraldine Muir) sharing one bed or at least one room in WWII (pic 1). Sorry, I don’t remember. There’s also another location with him on top of a bunk bed. Needs to be rechecked as I missed this movie.

Great movie, has been aired some time ago. I used to watch these kind of movies in theaters in the late 80s.

Very nice plots of boys and girls. One of my favourite movies and actor then.

For the bedrooms rating ~4-5. Much more for the movie itself ~8. Currently, I prefer US, Canadian and Italian movies. I usually don’t like those War movies but great actors and acting. Partly a comedy film.

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:
One bunk bed and (at least) one single bed on the right for 3 boys in yesterdays new season 22 episode. New actors and new location.

Also girls’ rooms shown, I think at least one bunk bed as well.

Also soon on my Shiny shorts and Pigtails blogs. No overalls in season 22 yet.

Season seems quite week as most of the later seasons. And the colors aren’t bright.

Main overview post here, rating up to 8

Comment:
At least 4 bunk beds in one small dorm at an orphanage or foster home. Vertically aligned on one row. At least one bed on the left is out of white metal. Others are different and brown and some might be (partly) wooden, I first thought, but might be wrong. Starring Wil Wheaton as 8 yo Donald.

I found this by coincidence on YouTube but only noticed one brief scene.

Sorry, no better pics.

Rating ~3-4. Typical drama of it’s kind. There are better movies. Not sure about the time setting. Might be (much) earlier. Probably the 60s or 70s. Timothy Hutton played the adult Donald.

Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.
