Comment: Zacharay Bennett in a large wooden bed with high posts. I think alone, unlike in earlier episodes. Also in a white night shirt. Better view of the room, previously I only noticed scenes at night.

Nice 1900s/1910s room and props. Dramatic plot.

Main entry, rating 6

Comment: I think 5 boys sharing this room. The youngest boy has a bed for his own. 2 other wooden beds with high posts are shared by 2 boys each. On the left the 2 oldest boys (pic 1). Boys are shirtless. Pic 3 obviously showing the room of the parents. I think there are also 2 older girls, who probably have a room for their own (separate beds ?)

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 7.

5 boys in one room is quite rare. I only have one movie tagged with 6 brothers.

Nice farm setting and handsome blonde boys. Unfortunately few bedroom scenes. And 2 brothers are 18 or older.

So rating 5-6 only.

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.

Gentle Giant (1967)

Gentle Ben pilot. Clint Howard
Year: 1967
Year in film: 1960s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Mark ~7
Kind of beds: single ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Clint Howard, I think sleeping alone in this 1960s farm bedroom.

Not bad, but nothing special. I’m still searching for the Gentle Ben episodes showing Ron Howard in bib overalls. Brothers in real life, but I think a relative or friend in the series and Ron only appeared in 2 episodes. Not sure if the same room is shown in the series as well.

For the bedroom rating ~4 for now only. I only have checked this briefly. Probably few good scenes of the room. He’s very young and I don’t like him.

Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Harry 9, Henry ~6
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Henry Thomas (1 year before film E.T., see also that entry) and younger film brother, played by Carey Hollis Jr.  sharing one bed. Looks like a wide, white metal bed with high side pieces. 1944 US farm setting. There’s also a young visitor (Eric Roberts as sailor Teddy). Not sure, where he slept. Maybe in the same room as well. But he’s not a relative. And I think not sharing the same bed.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog (rating 6) and my sailor suit blog, rating 5.

Sorry, I haven’t made better pics of the room. But obviously a typical, nice farm room.

Rating ~5-6. Movie even better.

Comment:
Canadian Carter Ryan Evancic in this room in s4e11. Has recently been aired, available still on the Bibel TV mediathek for one day.

Great Oke, LHOTP and Western-like series. Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5 and my Pigtails blog, rating 6.

I don’t remember all episodes. I think rather few good (bedroom) scenes.

So rating ~4-5 for now only. Handsome actors. Also showing girls.

Comment:
I’ve checked this long time ago, and so I don’t remember who’s bedroom this is. Probably of 11 yo Joseph Mazzello (also showing 13 yo Brad Renfro on the left). Also other locations like both on a boat, in a tent (shirtless) and Dexter in a hospital at the end.

Quite good movie.

But for the few and brief bedroom scenes (not brothers) rating ~3-4 only. Movie a bit higher. Brad Renfro was quite handsome.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl), rating 3.

Comment:
Julián Bravo as Juliancito/Tom Sawyer and his younger film brother sharing this small looking room with wooden beds. Nice Mexican adaption.

I only have checked this briefly. I think few scenes of the room.

Also soon on my pigtails blog.

Rating ~7-8. I like this room. Beds are close to each other.

Comment
David Ladd in this 1960s bedrooms with a wooden bed. Also pictured Pam Smith. Siblings and orphans in the movie. The sister probably has a room for her own, but I think not shown. Also another great, but brief scene, different, vertical angle.

Very nice, rating 6-7.

1947 novel by Marguerite Henry and the novel is set in the 1940s unlike this movie which is set in the 1960s.

Also on my Pigtails and Western blogs (rating 5 and 3).
