Rating: ****
Comment: Some boys in a dorm with separation walls. The black boy (Claude Amazan as main character) sleeping on the floor (also later in a wooden bed). I don’t remember if it’s at a different location. Pic 1 looks like an (unusual) dorm, maybe a modern orphanage. But the plot is about a summer camp. Probably no bunk beds.

Sorry, I’ve checked this some time ago. I don’t like the late 60s and early 70s. Typical movie. Also on my pigtails blog.

Rating 3-4 for the bedrooms.

Country: Sweden

Rating: 7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Some boys and I think girls in one dorm with rows of beds close to each other with little curtains over the heads. Located on a different planet.

Very interesting Sci-Fi series. Also including skinny dipping scenes. Handsome blonde boy.

I don’t know the complete series. Interesting dorm, strange beds, clothes and plot.

Rating ~7-8 for now. I think not on DVD. Script by Norwegian Roar Skolmen. Aka “Veien til Gyldenblå” which is also the title of his 1985 novel which would be interesting as well. But I think quite rare as well and maybe not translated. He also did some other interesting movies. One soon on my shiny shorts blog.

Comment:
Around 3 beds (or are there 2 rows ?) in this small dorm. Starring Scott Baio. Pic from ep “Luke Was There” aired in 1977 (s2e1). 47 minutes (but YouTube clip is just 32 minutes). I think the room is a larger hall (no wallpapers), with wall separators and a corridor on the left. So in fact there are more beds.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found several rare TV movie from LCA (The Learning Company) and similar.

1973 novel by Eleanor Clymer. Set in NY.

Rating 7. I have to search for more episodes. I don’t like much the 70s but interesting room, setting, plot and actors.

Comment:
At camp there are boys and girls, Probably in separate/several bunks. I think the boy is just visiting the girl(s). Nice, but typical wooden bunk beds. Handsome boys. But there are better movies.

Also previously on my Lederhosen blog, rating 5.

For the “room” rating 3-4 only. Movie itself maybe a bit higher.

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.

Rating ~3-4 only.

Comment: First I think a boy in a room with s single bed, then a small dorm with 5 or 6 or even more wooden bunk beds at a boarding school. At least 3 bunk beds on this right side and at least 2 on the opposite side. Plot is a bout choir boys.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s but the furnitures in pic 2 look like the 70s. 1955 novel by William Mayne.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4.

For the bedrooms, rating 6-7.

Some, mainly older (teen) boys, maybe orphans in this small dorm. I think at least 4 beds.

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

Quite interesting, but I prefer US movies and brothers.

So rating 4 for now only.

Comment:
2 or maybe more steel bunk beds in an orphanage or similar.

There’s also an interesting shower scene but nothig much to be seen there.

Awarded movie by Lisa Violetta Gaß.

For the bunk beds rating ~5. Not that bad, but there are better movies.

Highway to Heaven – s4e2

highwaytoheavens4e2highwaytoheavens4e2b

Danny Pintauro at an orphange in s4e1 and yesterday’s s4e2 (1987). Also later in a room for his own.

Typical adoption/runaway/dog plot but very handsome actor.

Not bad. Small dorm. At least 4 beds in this room.  I think 3 or 4 close each other, not sure if one or 2 rows. There’s at least one at the other side. 8 kids are shown, so maybe 2 rows of 4. But there are obviously more rooms.

Main entry rating up to 6

Comment:
Several young boys in a large typcal 1950s dorm with white metal beds. 3 or 4 rows, so around 30 beds. Catholic orphanage. Also toddlers at the beginning in higher beds and later at a hospital.

Quite interesting movie, but I think few good scenes and most boys are quite young. But there are also older, handsome boys.

So rating 3-4 only.

Aired in 1997 (IMDb wide release 1999). 2 parts (IMDb says 4 parts).
