Comment:
Another Encyclopaedia Britannica (EB Films) entry. This time an earlier b&w film from 1950. Maybe filmed in the late 40s.

Obviously a boy alone in this small attic room. Also shown inside his bed while sleeping.

Not that bad. 12 minutes.

Rating ~3-4.

Another, similar EB film in color

Comment: At least one young boy, I think alone in this 50s bedroom. Even in color.

I found this during research. More movies from Encyclopædia Britannica (EB Films) and similar educational films on my other blogs, especially the overalls blog (list 62).

Rating 3-4. Available on YouTube. Entry on IMDb (what is unusual for these).

Some more movies coming soon (mainly b&w).

Comment:
I’ve checked this long time ago, and so I don’t remember who’s bedroom this is. Probably of 11 yo Joseph Mazzello (also showing 13 yo Brad Renfro on the left). Also other locations like both on a boat, in a tent (shirtless) and Dexter in a hospital at the end.

Quite good movie.

But for the few and brief bedroom scenes (not brothers) rating ~3-4 only. Movie a bit higher. Brad Renfro was quite handsome.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl), rating 3.

Comment:
One dark haired boy, maybe David Bode, 13 or 14 yo probably sleeping alone in this bedroom.

Quite interesting, early 80s, German, large room in yellow color. But there are better ones.

So rating ~3-4 only.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 2.

Comment
Ronald Sinclair (then called Ra Hould, born in NZ), 1924-1992 sitting on top of a bunk bed in a cabin, visiting this man.

Nice sailor suit scenes (other blog rating 7) and other scenes of interest (swimming in underwear). I even bought the DVD.

Few bedroom scenes, no siblings. Typical runaway plot movie of these days.

For bedroom rating ~3 only.

Comment
Tommy (Pär Sundberg) and Annika (Maria Persson) sharing one bedroom. Beds are low and of light wooden. They are parallel aligned on the walls. Although timeless I think set in the 1940s (police men). Some clothes and props are rather 60s.

I have an entry but without pics. I searched several episodes but I only found this one. They are most often shown visiting Pippi.

Rating ~3-4 only.

Good and funny, timeless series. But there are even better ones also of Lindgren. Like Alla vi barn i Bullerbyn.

Has been aired yesterday (but I missed some parts). Interesting movie and clothes and handsome Alex Etel. Better pics maybe later. 1940 setting at his grandmother.

There’s a similar 1986 mini series called “The Children of Green Knowe” with a younger boy and also girls. Coming later.

For the bedroom, rating 3-4 for now. Needs to be rechecked.

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:
I think there are 2 older teen boys (Joshua Schaefer and 20 yo James Marsden) and an 11 yo sister. Probably each has a room for his own.

Also on my bib overalls blog, girl rating 5.

Produced by Roger Corman starring Joanna Kerns and Robert Hays. Also good baseball scenes of boys.

Nice wooden bed and green colors.

For now rating 3 only. The bedroom is not that bad, but I don’t like this actor and I think few good scenes. (Needs to be rechecked, especially for other rooms).

Comment: Not sure who is sleeping in this room, probably not Antboy (who is on the left) but his friend (15 yo Samuel Ting Graf) ? I think only one bed. Room is quite large.

Has recently been aired, but I only have seen the beginning.

Also a teen girl in shortsalls (bib overalls blog, rating 4).

For bedroom rating 3-4. Nice colors. Orange curtains and blue stuff matching Antboy’s shirt.
