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.

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).

(12 or) 13 yo Samory Ba, I think alone in this bedroom. Blue steel bed, no wall papers. Farm setting.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 4 (f,m) recently updated. Samory Ba in red overalls.

Comment:
I think it’s Lukas Haas, in this 1930s bedroom with maybe just one steel bed. Also sharing this bed with a young lady, probably Laura Dern (not his film sister). I think no siblings.

I’ve checked this long time ago and don’t remember much of it. Nominated for 2 Oscars.

Interesting setting and plot (novel by Calder Willingham) but I don’t like much this actors.

Rating ~4 only.

Comment:
There are 7 siblings or even 8. The main character is a boy called Laurie, ~ 6 yo at the beginning, soon after WWI, played by Stephen Grendon. Semi-autobiographical novel by Laurie Lee (*1914-1997). He has one younger brother, around 1 year younger and at least 2 older brothers. One sister died in 1915. So I think 3 more sisters (in probably another room). Pictured are obviously 2 different rooms. Pic 1 has I think 2 beds, pic 2 just one. Nice metal beds (brass ?).

Pics are set in the late 1910s or ~1920. There are 2 other actors of Laurie as teen boy and young adult. There are also 2 later movies, which also needs to be checked but probably aren’t better.

Interesting movie and bedrooms. Nice farm setting. But the boy is very young.

Rating ~6.

Comment:
2 boys sharing one bed, probably Tom on left (James A. Osmond) and younger film brother James Jarnigan as John D. Fitzgerald, who also wrote the novels.

Nice 1890s, Western-like setting and clothes, night shirt and barefooted. In pic 2 there are at least 2 beds. On the left. horizontally aligned as well are sitting 2 older boys, one probably Tom, the other maybe a friend?

Also on my bib overalls blog, soon to be updated (rating 7).

For the bedrooms rating at least 6-7.

Needs to be rechecked more carefully.

Comment:
Tod Fennell (Lassie 1997), I think alone in this metal bed, set in the early 1920s.

Interesting bed and also good scenes of 16 yo Meredith Henderson in bib overalls and in a one-room schoolhouse (overalls blog rating 7), but the movie is quite boring.

Snow scenes are great these days. Novel by Elizabeth van Steenwyk.

For the bedroom, rating ~4-5. Movie even lower. I have very few 1920s movies here.
