Comment:
At least one young boy in this, probably 1950s bedroom. Also another scene with a young boy in a separate bed next to his parents.

Setting is between 1955-1973. but most is probably shown in the 1950s.

Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5. Greek title: Πέπερμιντ.

Rating 3-4 for the bedroom scenes.

Comment:
At least this dorm in 1944 or the early 1940s. Obviously mainly older teen boys or even men here. Probably also other rooms (of girls, young boys and toddlers) as well.

I don’t know the complete movie yet and found it by coincidence by searching for another movie. Starring Ivo Pietzcker (“Jack”, 2014 now with very short hair), also starring David Bennent.

I don’t like this dorm nor the 40s.

So rating 3 for now only for bedroom scenes. Also soon on my pigtails blog (rating ~4).

10 or 11 yo Stanislas Forlani aka Stanislas Crevillén in this bedroom. I think no siblings but friends visiting him. Scene at 1h19.

I have checked it long time ago and don’t remember much.

Also on my bib overalls blog rating 7 with him in blue bibs.

There are much better episodes of this movie series like L’enfant sage (rating 6).

Rating 3-4 for this one.

Comment: Obviously Andre Laubscher in this sparce bedroom. Not sure about the time setting. Looks more like the 1950s or 60s (like in the books). The more famous 1980 series is set in the presence (1970s).

Movie first released in 1974. Available on remastered DVD.

Pic is from the trailer. I can’t say much more. Aka “Trompie en die Boksombende”. Book series by Topsy Smith.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment:
Ronnie Howard sleeps in this room with a wooden bed. Dart board on the right wall. More famous is maybe his dad’s room where he’s on the double bed in red/white pajamas and also shirtless (11 minutes). Later in blue/white pajamas. Scene at 3 minutes.

Quite good and funny classic movie but Ron Howard is very young here. And unfortunatley no siblings. I think few and brief scenes where he is in this bed. So rating 3-4 only.

I found a pic dark lit and in the movie I only found a close-up view and a side view (42 minutes). But this blog is about the rooms and not beds or headshots.

There’s also a 1969-1972 TV series starring Brandon Cruz and Jodie Foster (Sailor suit blog rating 3 for Jodie). Entry here coming soon.

Comment:
Some orphaned boys in a large, roomy dorm at a boarding school with metal beds.

Should not show Pagnol’s childhood memories, and set a bit later around 1925,  but filmed at his school in 1935 although it looks older.

I like Pagnol movies but there are much better ones (Check out my sailor suit blog).

Rating 3-4 for this one.

Comment:
I think one boy, probably 11 or 12 yo Peter played by 13 or 14 Rusty Jedwab in this bedroom. Wooden, untidy furniture with red fronts. Reminds me somehow of my childhood (what was earlier). I think no siblings, at least not in this room.

I have checked it some time ago and don’t remember much. English title The Young Magician. Produced by Rock Demers “Contes pour tous” movie series by Rock Demers (Tommy Tricker and the Stamp Traveller), Whiskers (1997) and many other masterpieces.

Rating 3-4 f0r now. What else to say? Maybe good plot and movie. But there are better ones including more handsome actors.

Comment:
Jim Redler (pic 1) in this white bedroom. I think he has no siblings but lives with other kids at foster parents. I don’t remember if there are sleeping more kids in this room, I think I have only seen one bed. There must be at least one more room, probably more (like for the girl).

Pic 2 showing 4 more kids sitting on Jo’s bed.

Also on my overalls blog (black teen boy Samory Ba (pic 2 on the right) +woman, rating 4).

Rating 3-4 for this room.

Comment:
The main character has 2 older sisters. One (Alina is some years older), so she probably shares her room with the girl Myshka. There are also 2 boys (friend and orphan). I think she don’t had brothers but not sure. Maybe her friend is just like a brother.

However interesting wooden 1910s Russian bedroom with interesting but probably typical metal beds for it’s time. I don’t remember much more. Most scenes are outsides.

Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5.

Раннее, раннее утро…, English title: Early, Early morning. Loosely based on the autobiographical 1959 novel “Dinka” (Динка) by Valentina Oseeva (Осеева, Валентина Александровна). There is also another 1971 movie about that called Найди меня, Лёня! (Naydi menya, Lyonya!) but I haven’t checked that.

Comment:
13 yo Mats (played by Lukas Holgersson, on the right) and his younger friend David (Olle Krantz) sharing a bedroom.

Has been aired around Christmas. This is a remake of the 1975 series (which is probably better). English title: The Boy With the Golden Pants.

Not sure about the time setting. Obviously modern. Based on a 1967 novel by Max Lundgren. I missed most of the film. There are definitely better movies. However good plot.

Rating 2-3.
