Comment:
Some orphaned boys, at least 5 boys including 12 or 13 yo Nat played by Michael Caloz (“Escape From Wildcat Canyon” 1998) in night shirts in this dorm. Set in 1871. Nice pillow fight.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. But looks verys interesting. Also nice schoolhouse scenes (but probably not showing overalls) and Christmas plot.

Rating maybe 6-7 for now.

Not to be confused with the (related) Canadian TV series of the same year starring Corey Sevier, which also needs to be checked. I also have the 1940 b&w movie, which was the 2nd remake on my sailor suit blog (boy rating 3). Novel by Louisa May Alcott, sequel of Little Women.

Comment:
At least this older boy in this room. There are some other kids, but I don’t know who sleeps in what room. An 11 yo girl has a younger brother. Farm setting (here ?)

One cabin has around 4-5 beds, but I think grown-ups live there. Was there also a hospital later?

Although I don’t like the 70s, rating 5-6 for now.

Also on my overalls blog (f,m rating 4).

Comment:
A young boy on the left and a young girl sharing this nice attic room on a ranch. Not sure about their names, probably Jacob Fisher and Emma Roberts.

Also on my Western blog, rating 6 and my overalls blog rating 5 (same girl, woman). I almost forgot this.

Nice ranch movie and I have few with brother and sister sharing a room but they are quite young.

Rating 5-6.

Comment:
I think this is Francisco Nascimento (rear bed) and maybe Antonio Pedro Figueiredo in this room. Not sure if they usually share this room. Setting probably in the 1980s, but the white metal bed looks much older (more like the 1920s or even earlier).

The scene might look very interesting, but there’s just a very brief scene, the younger boy first sitting on his bed.

Quite interesting movie, but there are even better movies from Joaquim Pinto. Only one younger teen boy here. English title: Where the Sun Beats.

I’m still searching for my unknown Italian assumed coming-of-age film, unknown #9 on my sailor suit blog. I also have checked “Uma Pedra no Bolso” once more completely as it looks very similar. Can someony exclude “A Idade Maior”(1991) ?

Rating 6 for this one.

Comment: OK. Also a classic here. One teen boy, I think Gene Toler probably in this bedroom. No siblings?

Not sure about the time setting. Should be a Western. But looks more like the 1930s.

Rating 3-4 only.

Aka His Ferocious Pal. Available on archive.org.

Rating: ********
Comment: Kieran Culkin (Biddle, right bed) and film brother Erik von Detten, both 13 yo but Kieran is younger looking, sharing this 1950s wooden farm bedroom.

Very interesting ranch movie. I like Culkin, but not von Detten.

Also on my Western blog, rating 7 and soon on my pigtails blog.

For bedroom scenes rating 7-8 for now. Needs to be fully rechecked.

Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: One boy, I think Luke Ward Wilkinson (not sure, maybe Jack Montgomery ?) alone in this nice, colorful room. The setting is, I think in the 1910s, so very colorful for this early time.

I only have checked this briefly.  Award winning picture book (1995) by Susan Wjciechowski

Also on my bib overalls blog, few scenes, rating 3.

For this bedroom, rating 4-5.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~7.

Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Andrew Ian McMillan in this bedroom. I think no siblings.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 8.

I think, I have seen this movie on TV but can’t remember. I don’t like snow movies. Aka just “Kavik the Wolf Dog”. Novel by Walt Morey (maybe also worth reading).

Rating 4-5 for now. Typical room. Nothing special but not that bad.

Swiss Family Robinson (1976)

swissfamilyrobinson1976

Adventure series. Chris Wiggins
Year: 1976
Year in film: 1801 ?
Country: Canada
Who in bedroom: Ernest 22, Marie ~12 ?
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: I found this scene in episode 2. Not sure who’s sharing this bed, I think it must be Michael Duhig and 12 yo Heather Graham. I wonder why Ernest is that old (22) in this series. In the novel he’s 13.

Probably the others also sleep in the same room? Including blonde Franz (Ricky O’Neill) around 13 yo and the parents?

Also on my pigtails blog rating 8.

Not to be confused with the 1975-1976 US series with a 13 yo Eric Olson as Ernie.

Rating 3 for now for the “bedroom”. Needs to be rechecked.
