Comment: Peter Billingsley, around 13 or 14 yo (but younger looking)  in this typical 80s bedroom. I think no siblings. Scene at 53 minutes.

After finding it for my Shiny shorts blog (rating 5, f/m) and rechecking “A Christmas Story (1983)”, now also an entry here.

Very interesting 80s movie. Although I don’t like Peter Billingsley.

For bedroom scenes, rating 5-6 only.

Rating: 5/10 *

Comment: I think this is the messy room of main character 12 yo Simon, played by 11 or 12 yo Maximilian Ehrenreich. I think no siblings. The other two boys are his friends. Very funny movie. In this scene they practising cutting bananas.

Small but quite modern room, although wooden bed and furniture.

I even bought this movie on DVD. It has been aired on TV soon after the DVD release. Interesting plot and handsome actors, especially Ben and maybe Clemens. I like freckles.

Movie rating ~7. Bedroom rating ~5.

Comment: Andrew Ian McMillan in this bedroom. I think no siblings.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 8.

I think, I have seen this movie on TV but can’t remember. I don’t like snow movies. Aka just “Kavik the Wolf Dog”. Novel by Walt Morey (maybe also worth reading).

Rating 4-5 for now. Typical room. Nothing special but not that bad.

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.)

Country: USA
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.
