Comment:
At least 4 bunk beds in one small dorm at an orphanage or foster home. Vertically aligned on one row. At least one bed on the left is out of white metal. Others are different and brown and some might be (partly) wooden, I first thought, but might be wrong. Starring Wil Wheaton as 8 yo Donald.

I found this by coincidence on YouTube but only noticed one brief scene.

Sorry, no better pics.

Rating ~3-4. Typical drama of it’s kind. There are better movies. Not sure about the time setting. Might be (much) earlier. Probably the 60s or 70s. Timothy Hutton played the adult Donald.

Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.

Comment:
Around 3 beds (or are there 2 rows ?) in this small dorm. Starring Scott Baio. Pic from ep “Luke Was There” aired in 1977 (s2e1). 47 minutes (but YouTube clip is just 32 minutes). I think the room is a larger hall (no wallpapers), with wall separators and a corridor on the left. So in fact there are more beds.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found several rare TV movie from LCA (The Learning Company) and similar.

1973 novel by Eleanor Clymer. Set in NY.

Rating 7. I have to search for more episodes. I don’t like much the 70s but interesting room, setting, plot and actors.

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).

Comment:
Looks like 2 different locations, as I only noticed one bed in pic 1 and 2 beds in pic 2. The main character is probably Iván Fernández as orphan Pedro. The other might be Miguel Angel Garcia, maybe a friend. But not sure who sleeps in the other bed. Maybe a room of the orphanage or foster parents?

Also other scenes of interest like a bthing scene.

1948 novel by Miguel Delibes. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 3. Another very interesting coming-of-age movie after Delibes (including sailor suit as well) is “Retrato de familia” (1976). Unfortunately, only 1 part on YouTube. Soon on my other blog.

Rating ~4.

Some, mainly older (teen) boys, maybe orphans in this small dorm. I think at least 4 beds.

I found this some time ago and don’t remember much of it.

Quite interesting, but I prefer US movies and brothers.

So rating 4 for now only.

Correct title: Indiáni z větrova, 1979 novel by Marketa Zinnerova.

2 or maybe more steel bunk beds in an orphanage or similar.

There’s also an interesting shower scene but nothig much to be seen there.

Awarded movie by Lisa Violetta Gaß.

For the bunk beds rating ~5. Not that bad, but there are better movies.

Highway to Heaven – s4e13

highwaytoheavens4e132highwaytoheavens4e13

4 orphaned brothers, 3 younger ones ~8-11 including Christian Guzek and older Michael Faustino.

No bedrooms but they sleep together in the rear of a van (pic 1). Pic 2 maybe elsewhere.

Also great jeans and fighting scenes of Christian Guzek, rating 9.

For the “bedroom” rating 3-4.

As usual, quite touching at the end (courtroom). Main overview entry

Highway to Heaven – s4e2

highwaytoheavens4e2highwaytoheavens4e2b

Danny Pintauro at an orphange in s4e1 and yesterday’s s4e2 (1987). Also later in a room for his own.

Typical adoption/runaway/dog plot but very handsome actor.

Not bad. Small dorm. At least 4 beds in this room.  I think 3 or 4 close each other, not sure if one or 2 rows. There’s at least one at the other side. 8 kids are shown, so maybe 2 rows of 4. But there are obviously more rooms.

Main entry rating up to 6

Comment:
Several young boys in a large typcal 1950s dorm with white metal beds. 3 or 4 rows, so around 30 beds. Catholic orphanage. Also toddlers at the beginning in higher beds and later at a hospital.

Quite interesting movie, but I think few good scenes and most boys are quite young. But there are also older, handsome boys.

So rating 3-4 only.

Aired in 1997 (IMDb wide release 1999). 2 parts (IMDb says 4 parts).
