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.

And yet another post of Gunsmoke. 9 or 10 yo Eric Shea (even younger looking) on left and his film sister played by 10 or 11 yo Pamelyn Ferdin sharing one bed. I don’t remember the location. Maybe not at home. Looks almost like in jail.

Also on my Western blog, rating 4.

There are 2 young brothers, played by Dennis Ross and Lonnie Thomas and maybe both sharing this room. Vintage steel bed(s).

I’ve checked it briefly some time for my Western blog (rating 5), but don’t remember much.

Rating at least ~3-4 for now. Boys are quite young.

Comment:
6 yo Susan Olsen (Cindy in The Brady Bunch) and 8 yo Mike Durkin sharing this room. Wooden beds and colorful sheets, both quite unusual for a Western.

Night shirts and bib overalls (boy only).

Also on my Western blog, rating 5 and my bib overalls blog, rating 4. They also both starred in s15e6 (Western blog) but I don’t remember bedrooms there.

Often young boys and girls used to share one bed. In s14e14, 2 kids, probably boys sharing one bed (coming soon).

Main entry, rating 5

Comment: Johnny Whitaker (pictured) and his half-brother Sid (credited as cousin Sidney on IMDb, played by Joshua Hill Lewis) probably sharing this room. Nice wooden bed. Low posts.

I don’t like Johnny Whitaker with his red curls and don’t like much this musical version.

So I don’t remember more bedroom scenes. Probably there aren’t many.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Tom+Huck+others, rating 6).

For the bedroom rating ~6 as well.

Oliver Robinson, around 15 yo but looking younger (also in Don’t Go to Sleep (1982), rating 4 +sister) I think alone in this bedroom in s1e15, segment Monsters! (1986).

I thought, I already had an entry.

I haven’t checked more episodes, yet.

Also on my bib overalls blog (incl. Bill Mumy in 1961, rating 5) and soon on my pigtails blog.

I like the 80s.

For now rating 5. Probably even higher for other episodes.

Comment:
I thought, I already had an entry, but I was wrong. I recently have checked all color episodes of this series for my other blogs.

Pic 1 is from s19e13 showing a typical brass Western bed. Not sure if the boy (William Shriver ?) sleeps here.

Pic 2 showing a completely different lower bed in s17e11. The room somehow looks modern and colorful. Yellow.

Pic 3 below showing I think a girl (Erica Petal) and a boy (Craig Huxley) sharing a bed in s15e14. Maybe also brothers (and sisters) sharing a bed in other episodes (like s14e14).

One of the best Western series. But I have to check the b&w episodes as well.

Many entries on my other blogs.

For bedrooms rating ~4-5 for now.
