Comment: Some boys, including many older teen boys in this cabin with steel bunk beds. At least around 4 bunk beds in this cabin. Probably more cabins, but I think not shown.

Quite interesting, so rating 6-7. But there are much better camp and Scout movies.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 3.

Rating: ***
Comment: Some young soldiers (conscripts) including 20 yo Frederick Lau in this dorm with 3 story bunk beds.

I like the 80s and Frederick Lau but I don’t like this movie. 3 story bunk beds are quite unusual but maybe nothing special in barracks.

I’ve added the tag 3 story and previousy had “Too Young the Hero” starring Rick Schroder (rating 6, at the Navy).

Comment: William Cuddy (Aaron, upper bunk) and Ricardo Hoyos sharing this room and bunk bed.

Short film (22 minutes).

An interesting scene at the end of the movie where the older boy in the lower bunk kicking to his younger brother on the upper bunk and tilting up that mattress.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Aaron, rating 4).

Kind of beds: rare bunk beds
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Next to the “beds” on the ship, I think mainly or only hammocks, there are also these rare bunk beds behind a wall opening, I think in a builing in ep 4. I only know wall niche beds in medieval and 18/19th century settings.

The bunk beds have (at least) 2 stories. Unfortunately, I haven’t noticed better views of them. Mainly wooden but with steel ladders. There are in total 12 boys (+ crew) but not sure if all sharing one room. Maybe some sleeping on the floor or in other rooms.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 6. English title: Western Lights.

Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: 2 sisters usually in a wooden bunk bed. But also later together with a boy (brother) in his bed (I think located in the same room).

Looks like the bunk bed in the 1982 series Spuk im Hochhaus (2 brothers, rating 4). Usually, I like bunk beds, but I don’t like the young girls and prefer US movies.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girls, rating 4).

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Still quite interesting. I have few entries about sisters and brother+sisters.

Year: 1980-1983
Year in film: 1980s
Country: UK
Who in bedroom: Ken, Janey, Haley, Steve ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: s1+2
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: There are at least 2 simple, wooden bunk beds in this large bedroom, but (according to Wikipedia) the family consists of just 3 older teen kids, I think Ken (Ashley Knight ~20 yo, oldest kid), Janey (black teen girl Lola Young) and Haley (Lucinda Bateson). Maybe one bed is empty? Or the 4th bed is owned by Steve (20 yo Gary Shail ?)

Haley also in tight, light blue bib overalls, other blog rating 5.

Unusual large and quite interesting bedroom. Older teen kids and bother and sister sharing one room. Could be worse.

For bedroom, rating 4-5. Partly available on DVD.

Das doppelte Lottchen (2017)

Family TV film, remake, novel by Erich Kästner
Year: 2017
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: 10 girls ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: yes ?

Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least 5, maybe 6 or 7 bunk beds in this girls’ room of this boarding school. At least one on the opposite side (right) next some lockers. There are also boys in this boarding school shown, but I haven’t noticed any other dorm. Probably the others look the same. Primitive bunk beds (metal ?).

Has been aired today. The first half is quite good, also showing boys and girls in swimwear (soon on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4). And girls in pigtails (other blog, rating 6).

But besides that, the movie is quite poor and there are several other movies with this plot of the twins.

For bedrooms rating 3-4 only.

Happy Easter!

Harnessing Peacocks

Drama, romance
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1980s ?
Country: UK
Who in bedroom: 3 or 4 boys ~11-12
Kind of beds: single+ bunk bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: I think there are 4 boys, but I only have seen a bunk bed (or high sleeper) on the left and a separate bed. The room is too small for a 4th bed, so either on has a room for his own, or one boy is just a friend or relative.

Interesting room and scene including a changing scene, but unfortunately, I haven’t noticed any other bedroom scenes, only this one at daytime.

Rating 6. 1985 novel by Mary Wesley, so maybe set in the 80s.

What Love Sees

TV drama movie about blind parents and blind child
Year: 1996
Year in film: (1941-) 1959
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: boys 9,12,13. Girl 15
Kind of beds: bunk bed

Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: I think there are three brothers including 9 yo Coutland Mead as blind Hap and 2 older boys (12 yo Cody McMains as Billy and 13 yo Trevor O’Brien, brother of Austin as Gordy) and one 15 yo sister (Ashlee Lauren as Faith). Sorry, I’ve read that too late, so I don’t know exactly who is in this room. Nice wooden old bunk bed.

I assume that the 3 brothers sharing a room, so there must be a separate bed. Or another bunk bed or room. Ranch setting, I think mainly in the (late) 1950s (as pictured). Starring Richard Thomas as dad. 1988 novel by Susan Vreeland.

Also on my overalls blog (Mead, rating 4).

Rating 6 for now for this bedroom. Needs to be rechecked. Idon’t like Mead here. The older boys are probably more of interest.

Angel City (1980)

Year: 1980

Country: USA
Who in bedroom: teen boys, men
Kind of beds: bunk bed +separate bed
Available on DVD: VHS only

Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least some young men and probably also (teen) boys in bunk beds and separate beds. Or are the younger actors just relatives who came for a visit? Some men in bib overalls. First I thought of a much earlier setting. It’s a migrant labour camp, rural setting. Not sure if more than one bunk bed in each room.

I found this by coincidence and as usual only have checked it partly. Obviously mainly men.

Rating 3-4 for now only.
