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).

Comment:
At least one wooden bunk bed in this room. Not very high. Not sure who sleeps there. Main character is the girl Punky. But mostly boys are shown here including one younger boy and two older ones. I assume that 2 boys sleeping here (or boy and girl or even 2 sisters?). Maybe 9 yo blonde Casey Ellison (pic on my other blog). Pic from s1e21. “Punky gets her own room” is the title of s1e4. So also rooms with a single bed are shown. But she previously slept on the couch. Also at least 2 steel bunk beds at camp in s4e3 (girls).

Also on my shiny shorts and my bib overalls blog, rating 3 each.

Quite interesting but rather few good scenes like at night. But I don’t know all episodes, especially the later seasons.

Also starring several guest stars like Chad Allen and Benji Gregory.

So rating 5-6.

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 4 metal bunk beds at an orphange. Girls but also boys (not sure if in the same room). Also a boy at home in a wooden bed.

Novels (1966-1989) by Marjatta Kurenniemi, English title: Jill, Joy and the Mysterious Stranger. Not sure about the time setting. Might appear very modern and colorful, but probably set in the 1970s? Or a mix (timeless plot)

Quite interesting, but I prefer wooden bunk beds.

Rating 4-5 only.

Also soon on my bib overalls nlog (girls, women, rating ~4).
