Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: 2 brothers (identical twins), played by Niek and Freek Verstraaten, almost 12 yo with red curly hair first sharing one bed. Also later with one black girl (Lotje ?) in the middle. Later, they had to separate and sleep in different beds (same room with one separation wall). But the boy in the left bed then visited the other boy. Pics from todays s2e2 (“Unzertrennlich”, “Op avontuur”?).  There’s also a little sister who got their room.

IMdb says it’s a 2015 short film. But it’s a series. Wunschliste says series 2017-. But 2015 for this is obviously correct according arte. No entry on either Dutch nor German Wikipedia. VPRO production. “zappbios”.

I don’t like the boys, but nice plot and room. They ran away.

Coming soon: Road to Avonlea. 2 brothers and 2 sisters each sharing a bed (s1e13, same room), 1900s setting. Also recently updated on my overalls blog.

Le petit bougnat

petitbougnat2petitbougnat

Drama, family film
Year: 1970
Year in film: ~1969 ?
Country: France, Italy
Who in bedroom: boys ~10-12 ?
Kind of beds: dorm, separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Some boys in a dorm with separation walls. The black boy (Claude Amazan as main character) sleeping on the floor (also later in a wooden bed). I don’t remember if it’s at a different location. Pic 1 looks like an (unusual) dorm, maybe a modern orphanage. But the plot is about a summer camp. Probably no bunk beds.

Sorry, I’ve checked this some time ago. I don’t like the late 60s and early 70s. Typical movie. Also on my pigtails blog.

Rating 3-4 for the bedrooms.

Swamp Thing (1990)

swampthing

Sci-Fi series, 72 ep

Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Jim ~9
Kind of beds: single
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Another one starring Jesse Zeigler, I think pictured shirtless in pajamas. Not sure if it’s his bedroom. Doesn’t look like childish. Pic from s1e9. There’s also a scene with the lady (mom?) in (this or similar) wooden bed (same episode). Rounded head part. Maybe they even share this bed? Also Jim in a hospital bed in s1e8.

Handsome boy actor. Obviously very few bedroom scenes.

For the bedroom rating ~4-5 only.

Who in bedroom: Lloyd ~12 ?
Kind of beds: single bed ?

Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Todd Bosley in this bed and bedroom. He has a younger film brother (played by Sammy Elliott, around 8 yo, also shirtless), but I think he has a room for his own and sometimes wake him up. Also starring Brendon Ryan Barrett (a friend and classmate only ?). He is also shown there.

Great family film. Also on my bib overalls and Western blog rating up to 7.

For the room, rating ~4-5 only. Needs to be rechecked more carefully for other rooms or beds. Filmed in 1997 (or 1996).

Gentle Giant (1967)

Gentle Ben pilot. Clint Howard
Year: 1967
Year in film: 1960s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Mark ~7
Kind of beds: single ?
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Clint Howard, I think sleeping alone in this 1960s farm bedroom.

Not bad, but nothing special. I’m still searching for the Gentle Ben episodes showing Ron Howard in bib overalls. Brothers in real life, but I think a relative or friend in the series and Ron only appeared in 2 episodes. Not sure if the same room is shown in the series as well.

For the bedroom rating ~4 for now only. I only have checked this briefly. Probably few good scenes of the room. He’s very young and I don’t like him.

Comment: Jeremy Miliker, I think alone in this room with a low, obviously selfmade blue high sleeper.

Has been aired on Christmas.

Also on my bib overalls blog (pregnant woman rating 3).

For the bedroom rating ~3-4 for now. I missed the 2nd half of the movie. The boy is quite young. Interesting bed and room though.

Year in film: ~1930s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Georgie ~7, John ~8, Anabel ~8 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: not yet
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: 2 brothers and one sister sharing this room (Nathanael Saleh, Joel Dawson and Pixie Davis). Set in the 1930s as this is a sequel to the 1964 classic (which is set in the 1910s, no entry yet). Nice pajamas and short, white union suits.

New in cinemas. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5 for now.

I often prefer the classics. But probably a nice, but typical modern family film.

Kids are quite young. At least another brother/sister entry.

Rating ~4 for now.

Happy Christmas to all may readers!

Comment: I think Sasha Mylanus in this attic bedroom. He also has a sister, probably with a room for her own.

Has just been aired. Nice, but typical Dutch movie. I don’t like this boy.

But nice colors. English titles: The Amazing Wiplala, Help! I’ve Shrunk the Family.

Rating ~4-5.

Also today in Die Pfefferkörner: 2 black brothers sharing one bed (s15e7).

Rating: ****
Comment: Again 4 boys sharing one bed. But this time 2 in each direction (pic 2 heads at the foot side, obviously Buckwheat and maybe Froggy.) Other 2 are Robert Blake and maybe Happy (Mickey Laughlin). Maybe it’s the same bed than in other movies.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found many MGM Our Gang movies on facebook.

This movie also soon on my other blog, rating ~5.

Not bad, but boys are quite young, rather few scenes, so rating ~4-5.

Main overview here b&w/colorized, rating up to 6

2010s ?

Canada
Who in bedroom: Felix ~10 ?

Available on DVD:

Rating:
4/10
Rating:

Comment:
Either Felix (Edouard Tremblay-Grenier) or less likely Alexandre (Alfred Poirier) in this bedroom. I think there’s only one bed and they are friends? Felix has an older brother (probably with an own room). The rooms seems very small. Needs to be rechecked.

The room is nothing special. The plot seems interesting. Some nice scenes (tighty whiteys, crossdressing, shiny shorts). Earlier on my shiny shorts blog, rating 7.

For the bedroom rating 3-4 only. Set in Montréal.

Directed by Philippe Lesage from Quebec. English title: The Demons.
