Comment: Some boys, including many older teen boys in this cabin with steel bunk beds. At least around 4 bunk beds in this cabin. Probably more cabins, but I think not shown.

Quite interesting, so rating 6-7. But there are much better camp and Scout movies.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 3.

Comment: I found these screenshots on my old PC. Aired probably in the early 90s, (movie could be older, maybe late 80s ?). There’s a dorm in an orphanage and a younger, maybe Chinese bedwetting boy. 2 other kids laying his hand in a bowl of water while he sleeps. I think, the boy later tried to escape while the others sleep. And I think is caught by a man. Could also be Spanish or similar.

Does anybody remembers the title?

Rating: 3/10 *
Rating: ***
Comment: From my Lederhosen blog (rating 9+). I almost forgot to post it here as well. Oscar Brose as 12 yo main character and probably his younger film sister, played by Magdalena Matz sharing this 1960s room.

Nothing special and few bedroom scenes. Wooden lower beds, angled at 90 degrees and ugly wallpapers.

For bedroom rating 3-4 only. Much higher for the movie itself.

For more infos see my other blog. Partly b&w. Also starring Peter Lohmeyer.

Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Some young soldiers (conscripts) including 20 yo Frederick Lau in this dorm with 3 story bunk beds.

I like the 80s and Frederick Lau but I don’t like this movie. 3 story bunk beds are quite unusual but maybe nothing special in barracks.

I’ve added the tag 3 story and previousy had “Too Young the Hero” starring Rick Schroder (rating 6, at the Navy).

Comment: William Cuddy (Aaron, upper bunk) and Ricardo Hoyos sharing this room and bunk bed.

Short film (22 minutes).

An interesting scene at the end of the movie where the older boy in the lower bunk kicking to his younger brother on the upper bunk and tilting up that mattress.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Aaron, rating 4).

Salem’s Lot (1979)

Year: 1979
Year in film: 1970s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Mark ~17. Danny ~12
Kind of beds: single beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: Different locations but very interesting, wooden 70s bedrooms. 17 or 18 yo, but younger looking Lance Kerwin (pics 1+2) I think alone in this room, but also visited by 2 friends. The 2 brothers (Danny and Ralphie, played by Brad Savage, pics 3+4  and Ronnie Scribner),  I think they have rooms for their own, but not sure, but Ralphie becomes a vampire anyway. Also a hospital bed of green metal and bedrooms of grown-ups (soon on my shiny shorts blog).

I like the rooms, very nice props and colors, but I think only single beds (except the hospital). Great story by Stephen King and handsome Lance Kerwin. I also have to check the later adaptions.

Rating 7-8.

Country: Russia, others
Who in bedroom: Sasha ~17, Seryozha 7, woman
Kind of beds: separate beds

Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: 17 or 18 yo Sergey Bodrov (1971-2002), I think 9 or 10 yo Ruben Tapiero as 7 yo Seryozha and maybe a young lady (behind a room-divider) sharing this room. There’s also 14 yo Erwan Baynaud (L’enfant sage) as 14 yo Seryoza but I haven’t noticed him in a bedroom. I understood, that the 17 yo boy is a neighbor and not the brother.

Quite interesting but typical movie and room of this time setting.

English title: East/West or East-West. 121 minutes.

Rating 3 only.

Country: Italy
Who in bedroom: boys ~11-16
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: I think 4 beds with shirtless boys including Vito (Nando Triola), I think the youngest, around 11 or 12 yo. Others are much older. Street kids, maybe (partly) orphans and not brothers.

Great movie and some nice scenes, but I prefer bunk beds, brothers and US movies.

So for the bedrooms, rating 7-8 only.

I have seen it long time ago, but checked it completetly but at high speed some months ago for my unknown Italian movie (on my sailor suit blog). English title: Vito and the Others.

Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Two brothers sharing this bedroom. Beige and brown look quite old fashioned. The youngest (Tomas Holy as Ladislav, 1968-1990, pic 2) should be around 10 yo but looking even younger, the other (Miroslav Batik) is a bit older, 1 or 2 years.

I found this by coincidence on YouTube. 1h length.

Somehow quite interesting.

So rating 5-6.

Directed by Ludvik Raza (“Odysseus a hvezdy”, see shiny shorts blog). Title means Vampire in the Tower.

Comment: Some, I think mainly younger boys at a small, private looking orphange. At least 10 beds in this room. I doubt that there are more rooms.

I only have checked it briefly and don’t remember all scenes.

Also a boy in a sailor suit, other blog, rating 4.

Rating 4-5 for now only.
