Das doppelte Lottchen (2017)

doppeltelottchen2017bed

Family TV film, remake, novel by Erich Kästner
Year: 2017
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: 10 girls ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least 5, maybe 6 or 7 bunk beds in this girls’ room of this boarding school. At least one on the opposite side (right) next some lockers. There are also boys in this boarding school shown, but I haven’t noticed any other dorm. Probably the others look the same. Primitive bunk beds (metal ?).

Has been aired today. The first half is quite good, also showing boys and girls in swimwear (soon on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4). And girls in pigtails (other blog, rating 6).

But besides that, the movie is quite poor and there are several other movies with this plot of the twins.

For bedrooms rating 3-4 only.

Happy Easter!

Swiss Family Robinson (1976)

swissfamilyrobinson1976

Adventure series. Chris Wiggins
Year: 1976
Year in film: 1801 ?
Country: Canada
Who in bedroom: Ernest 22, Marie ~12 ?
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: I found this scene in episode 2. Not sure who’s sharing this bed, I think it must be Michael Duhig and 12 yo Heather Graham. I wonder why Ernest is that old (22) in this series. In the novel he’s 13.

Probably the others also sleep in the same room? Including blonde Franz (Ricky O’Neill) around 13 yo and the parents?

Also on my pigtails blog rating 8.

Not to be confused with the 1975-1976 US series with a 13 yo Eric Olson as Ernie.

Rating 3 for now for the “bedroom”. Needs to be rechecked.

Armans Geheimnis

Year in film: 2010s, Fantasy, 1900s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: teen boys, girls ~15
Kind of beds: separate+single
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Main characters are 5 teens (3 boys, 2 girls). Modern ranch and city setting obviously in the present. But also other (fantasy) worlds and/or time travel. Partly looking medieval. Some clothes look like 1900s. Pics from today’s episode s1e13. Pic 2 maybe a bit earlier (bed of younger girl). I haven’t found infos about the exact time setting (in the other world). Or the exact plot.

At least 3 or maybe all 5 beds on pic 1. Beds angled. 2 boys head to head.

Starring Gil Ofarim, Sinje Irslinger and Luise Befort.

I don’t like this series with older teens. Reminds me of “Fluch des Falken” which is similar (boring).  There are also some younger actors (relatives) including boys, like Lutz Simon Eilert and Gereon Schoel, but I only have seen some pics and no more bedrooms. Unknown episode. Needs to be rechecked.

2nd season to be aired on Easter.

Rating 3 for now only. Typical series, mainly for girls (horses).

Angel City (1980)

TV drama starring Ralph Waite
Year: 1980
Year in film: ~1980
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: teen boys, men
Kind of beds: bunk bed +separate bed
Available on DVD: VHS only
I own: no
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least some young men and probably also (teen) boys in bunk beds and separate beds. Or are the younger actors just relatives who came for a visit? Some men in bib overalls. First I thought of a much earlier setting. It’s a migrant labour camp, rural setting. Not sure if more than one bunk bed in each room.

I found this by coincidence and as usual only have checked it partly. Obviously mainly men.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

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).

Comment:
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.

Rating: ***
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.
