Comment: Pic 1 showing 2 boys in ep 26 (not sure if brothers), pic 2 is from ep 21, probably a different room and actor. Many kids acting. Some are siblings (in the series and in real life).

Another great Australian series by Roger Mirams. I only have checked it briefly.

It’s a kid’s holiday camp in a ghost city (gold mine, Western town setting). Maybe I missed even better scenes?

Also on my pigtails blog rating 6 and my overalls blog (girl) rating 3.

There was a sequel series called Professor Poopsnagle’s Steam Zeppelin” with the same kids. Nice blue coveralls in there.

Rating 6 for now. Needs to be rechecked completetly.

Comment: 10 yo brother Jerry (Simon James, red shirt, upper bunk) and his film twin sister Louise (Kate McNeil) sharing this room and dark wooden bunk bed. Pic from s1e22. Also he shown in bed in s1e14.

A room of a Japanese girl is shown in s1e12. Also some more locations, like a tent (boy with a dark bowlcut and round glasses in s1e25).

Good series and handsome kids, but I prefer the 60s Classic (rating 6, 2 brothers).

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 9.

Comment: 9 or 10 yo Tadeusz Horvath aka Tadeusz Horvath-Sienkiewicz as Stas (Stanni in Germany), pic 2 sharing the room with 2 girls (one older, one younger), probably his sisters played by Agnieszka Krukówna (Asia/Anja) and Monika Sapilak (?) as Basia/Bärbel. Beds of the girls a bit angled. Beige or yellow wooden beds and farm setting. Not sure about the time setting. Probably the 80s. Pics from ep 2.

There are also 3 more kids (2 young twin boys and one girl), but I haven’t seen their room, yet.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, man, rating 6) and my pigtails blog (rating 6). German title: Die Kinder vom Mühlental.

I still have to recheck the complete series as well as the sequels.

Rating 6 for now. 2 sisters and one brother in one room is quite rare. Interesting farm room.

Comment:
Some boys and teen boys at Summer camp in dorms with these white metal bunk beds. I think at least 2 rows, so maybe 6 or 8 bunk beds (in each room).

Also on my shiny shorts blog with very good scenes of boys wearing shiny shirts including Adidas, some shirtless (rating 7).

The bunk beds are probably older and look like (Western European) 1950s beds.

Interesting series but I can’t give any rating higher than 5 or 6 for these beds.

Comment:
One older, darkhaired boy wearing glassing (upper bunk) and a younger blonde brother sharing this wooden bunk bed. Pic from s1e1. Maybe other bedrooms and actors in later episodes?

Also at least one boy in Lederhosen (Lederhosen blog rating 6). Also a bathtub scene of both brothers in s1e1.

I don’t know the complete series. I think set in Munich and some episodes with rural setting.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Comment:
Several boys in this boarding school (I think also shirtless) in a quite large large, nice 1950s dorm. Not sure if there are more dorms. At least 2 rows (or maybe 3) of white metal beds horizontally aligned, separated by low cupboards. There are also tables and high cupboards in the room.

I like classics and this is much better than the remakes. I think rather few scenes in the middle of the movie. I have few entries about boarding schools, especially with early settings. The novel is set even earlier but the plot is timeless and always set in the presence.

Also on my Lederhosen blog (rating 4) and my pigtails blog (boy, rating 8).

Rating 6-7 for this dorm.

Some, mainly older teen boys at Summer camp in this room with primitive wooden bunk beds. I think few good scenes.

So rating 5-6 for now only.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 6.

There are much better camp movies.

Comment:
There are (at least) 3 boys, probably brothers in this room. The 2 pictured from a colorful red metal bunk bed and an older teen boy, shirtless on the right in a separate bed.

I found a very short clip, showing the younger boy picking up a sticky paper handkerchief from the floor and holding it to the nose of the other boy pictured.

I don’t know the title and can’t say anything more. Might be Spanish, Mexican or similar or even just Spanish dubbed.

Who knows the title? Maybe from the 1990s (or even late 80s or early 2000s ?) Looks rather like a TV series or maybe even just a commercial?

Rating 6 for now.

Comment:
I think 11 or 12 yo Scott Bloom (perfect light blue eyes) in this nice white 80s bedroom. Shirtless in bed with long white pajamas pants. He has a brother 3 years older, Brian Bloom (brother in real life and playing his brother in the movie). I think he has a room for his own? Not sure, I think it’s not shown. Scene at the very beginning of the movie. The bedroom of the parents is also shown in the middle.

Very good horror film.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating even 8-(9).

What else to say?

Rating 6-7.

Comment:
18 or 19 y0 Matthew Labyorteaux in this 80s bedroom. I think no brothers. He probably has an older film sister but obviously with a room for her own.

Scene at the beginning of the movie. I haven’t noticed any other bedroom scenes of interest.

Also perfect swim shorts scenes of young boys (shiny shorts blog rating 10) and shorts of boys, an older teen girl and teen boy.

Rating 5-6 for this bedroom. Nothing special but not bad either.
