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: 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 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
Tommy (Pär Sundberg) and Annika (Maria Persson) sharing one bedroom. Beds are low and of light wooden. They are parallel aligned on the walls. Although timeless I think set in the 1940s (police men). Some clothes and props are rather 60s.

I have an entry but without pics. I searched several episodes but I only found this one. They are most often shown visiting Pippi.

Rating ~3-4 only.

Good and funny, timeless series. But there are even better ones also of Lindgren. Like Alla vi barn i Bullerbyn.

And yet another post of Gunsmoke. 9 or 10 yo Eric Shea (even younger looking) on left and his film sister played by 10 or 11 yo Pamelyn Ferdin sharing one bed. I don’t remember the location. Maybe not at home. Looks almost like in jail.

Also on my Western blog, rating 4.

Peter and Eva Hagenbäume (brother and sister in real life) I think sharing this room. Beds maybe horizontally aligned, also both shown sitting on the same bed. Nice pajamas scenes and other scenes of interest (swimming, bathtub).

Needs to be rechecked.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl rating 3). Novel by Ann Ladiges. Now available on DVD.

For the bedroom rating 4-5 for now (although I don’t like the 70s).

I think this young boy (Uri Alter ?) sharing this 1960s bedroom with his older film sister Mili Avital? He has to look away when she undresses.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, mainly boys rating 3.

Quite interesting movie but the girl is very old. Unusual late setting, Rating ~4.

Comment:
6 yo Susan Olsen (Cindy in The Brady Bunch) and 8 yo Mike Durkin sharing this room. Wooden beds and colorful sheets, both quite unusual for a Western.

Night shirts and bib overalls (boy only).

Also on my Western blog, rating 5 and my bib overalls blog, rating 4. They also both starred in s15e6 (Western blog) but I don’t remember bedrooms there.

Often young boys and girls used to share one bed. In s14e14, 2 kids, probably boys sharing one bed (coming soon).

Main entry, rating 5

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.

Comment:
I thought, I already had an entry, but I was wrong. I recently have checked all color episodes of this series for my other blogs.

Pic 1 is from s19e13 showing a typical brass Western bed. Not sure if the boy (William Shriver ?) sleeps here.

Pic 2 showing a completely different lower bed in s17e11. The room somehow looks modern and colorful. Yellow.

Pic 3 below showing I think a girl (Erica Petal) and a boy (Craig Huxley) sharing a bed in s15e14. Maybe also brothers (and sisters) sharing a bed in other episodes (like s14e14).

One of the best Western series. But I have to check the b&w episodes as well.

Many entries on my other blogs.

For bedrooms rating ~4-5 for now.
