Comment: Canadian Michael Caloz at least in pic 1 in a modern, colorful bedroom. Scene at 22 minutes. Not sure about pic 2,  according to my notes of my VHS this must also be from this movie but I haven’t found it online. A boy at least shirtless in this loft of a cabin.  Reminds me of much earlier settings like LHOTP. Who can help here?

I also have him in Whisker (1997) rating 6.

Rating 4-5 for pic 1 and 3-4 for the “bedroom” of pic 2. Obviously no siblings. Movie is quite poor.

Comment: Jonathan Kahn in this interesting attic bedroom. No siblings. Wooden bed.

Very interesting movie with some strange scenes. I still have it completely on one of my last VHS. 1963 novel by Yukio Mishima. Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.

I don’t like to 70s nor the 60s. And no siblings.

So for the bedroom, rating 5-6 only. Plot/movie rating8-9.

Comment: Bill Switzer in this bedroom. He has a younger sister in the series, around 9 yo, but I think she has a room for her own.

I have briefly checked this series and the 1991 series starring Omri Katz, mainly for shiny shorts scenes. I haven’t found any, just boxer shorts. (Rating 10 in Dallas).

Rating 4-5 for now.

The original series is much better and Omri even more handsome (rating 10, bedrooms there rating 6.)

Who in bedroom: Lance, Dennis ~10, 11
Kind of beds: high sleeper + bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Seth Green (Lance, the older brother) and Joshua Rudoy (“Harry and the Hendersons (1987)”) sharing this room. A rare high sleeper with large green (metal ?) posts and wooden side parts. Below the other bed, angled at 90 degrees (for Dennis ?).

I have some few episodes on DVD and TV recordings, but not this one. I have briefly checked some episodes (for shiny shorts) but haven’t found anything of interest. One of the boys here, I think Seth, wearing shorts, but not shiny.

Also on my overalls blog (f, m) rating 5. Great and funny series.

Main entry (s1e1) rating 5 at

Comment:
2 boys, in a steel bunk bed. 28 minutes. Scene at 14 minutes. Discussion with many, mostly older teen boys and girls. I don’t know how many beds in each room. I only have seen one.

As announced another documentary, I found on archive.org. National Film Board of Canada, about the English school in Leiston/Suffolk after 45 years of foundation.

I don’t like the late 60s and early 70s. But it’s quite interesting. Rating 5.

No entry on IMDb. Full movie at

Comment:
At least these 2 separate bedrooms of this brothers Jurgen (pic 1) and Arjan (pic 2 also in underwear). They have 2 sisters and each of them also has a room for her own. Both pics from song “Ochtendhumeur” from episode 6 (1985). I think some more bedrooms in other episodes (episode 10 ?). I don’t know and don’t remember every clip but I assume rather few bedrooms for what I have seen. Many clips are outside or on the stage.

Rating 5 for now. And I doubt that there are better scenes. Bunk beds? More in one bed? Maybe in the show on stage? Often girls are shown.

Also on my bib overalls blog rating 8 (f/m) and my Lederhosen blog rating 3. I haven’t found girls in pigtails yet.

The Waltons – Season 7

waltonss7e1

In s7e1 (set around 1941), Mary Ellen and Erin sharing a tiny loft room and a foldayway bed at a guesthouse. Erin likes this room, but Mary Ellen doesn’t.

I prefer posting brothers bedrooms, but there are very few foldaway beds.

The Waltons also have some other and better scenes at their home, mainly 3 brothers in one room and 3 sisters (rating 8). Also some guest and other constellations.

Comment:
Some, mainly (older) teen boys at camp in separate beds. I don’t remember bunk beds, which are more common in camp movies. There’s also a room of teen girls shown.

Also several good shiny shorts scenes (f,m), shiny shorts blog rating (8)-9 including one boy around 10 yo.

Rating 5-6 for the “bedroom” scenes. Some funny scenes and prank there. But I prefer brothers and bunk beds.

Great 80s movie though. Unfortunately few scenes of young boys and expensive as uncut DVD/BD.

I still have to check the sequels. Very good bunk beds and shirtless boys in “Return to Sleepaway Camp” (2008), coming soon.

Comment:
Jerry O’Connell as young Ralph Parker in this room (also shown shirtless).

He has a 9 yo blonde brother Randy (also shirtless), played by Jason Clarke Adams aka Jason Adams (see my Western blog, rating 5),  but probably he has a room for his own (although set in the 1950s)?

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie.

It’s related to “A Christmas Story” (1983) like some more movies, novel by Jean Shepherd.

Sorry for the bad pic. I can’t say much more yet. I think few good scenes of the room.

Rating 5 for now only.

 

The Waltons – Season 6

waltons-s6

There are 2 British orphans, boy and girl visiting the Waltons around Christmas (1939 ?), sharing one bed. Disc 4 at 1h13. I think it’s a double episode s6e1?

Probably the first episode of boy and girl sharing a bed. But the boy is very young and first never talks. Probably the room and bed of John-Boy. See main entry for other pics of this room.

Rating 4-5 for this.

Main entry rating 8 with up to 4 boys (usually 3 brothers) in one room and 3 sisters in another.
