Comment: Obviously 2 brothers sharing a bed. Also a dorm at an boarding school  shown. Girls in a (different but very similar) dorm.  There are 5 siblings, 3 boys and 2 girls in the main family. Nice underwear and I think swim scenes.

Also 2 older boys and a man in one bed in the first movie Five Little Peppers and How they Grew.

I first found the PD novels by Margaret Sidney. Also on my bib overalls blog (little girl). and soon on my Pigtails blog.

Next to Tommy Bond there’s also (older) Ronald Sinclair starring.

Rating 5-6.

Rating: 5/10

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.

Comment:
Another Encyclopaedia Britannica (EB Films) entry. This time an earlier b&w film from 1950. Maybe filmed in the late 40s.

Obviously a boy alone in this small attic room. Also shown inside his bed while sleeping.

Not that bad. 12 minutes.

Rating ~3-4.

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.

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
Ronald Sinclair (then called Ra Hould, born in NZ), 1924-1992 sitting on top of a bunk bed in a cabin, visiting this man.

Nice sailor suit scenes (other blog rating 7) and other scenes of interest (swimming in underwear). I even bought the DVD.

Few bedroom scenes, no siblings. Typical runaway plot movie of these days.

For bedroom rating ~3 only.

There are 2 young brothers, played by Dennis Ross and Lonnie Thomas and maybe both sharing this room. Vintage steel bed(s).

Comment: Looks like a rather small attic room/dorm with I think at least ~3 or 4 beds. Probably set in the girls’ boarding school. Starring Veronica Cartwright (“The Birds”) and Karen Balkin as girls.

I found this some time ago and don’t remember much.

Quite interesting room. But I prefer color movies and brothers.
