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.

Comment: Some boys in a large dorm set in 1962.

Also other “scenes of interest” like skinny dipping.

Nice, but quite typical dorm. Nice colors and good plot, handsome boys.

Rating ~6. I’ve checked this long time ago, so I can’t remember much more.

English title: The Kiss Under the Bell. I have quite few 60s movies.

Comment: Some boys in a dorm at a prep school. 2 rows of separate steel beds. At least 10 beds in this dorm, but there must be other rooms as well (not shown ?). Few bedroom scenes. At the end also boys in one bed (one pair in opposite directions). Scenes pictured at 8 and 26 minutes.

Nice dorm and qiute good plot, rating 5-6.

I have seen and recorded this in the 90s. Nice bathtub scene. But there are better movies.

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.

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.

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.
