Comment:
Some orphaned boys, at least 5 boys including 12 or 13 yo Nat played by Michael Caloz (“Escape From Wildcat Canyon” 1998) in night shirts in this dorm. Set in 1871. Nice pillow fight.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. But looks verys interesting. Also nice schoolhouse scenes (but probably not showing overalls) and Christmas plot.

Rating maybe 6-7 for now.

Not to be confused with the (related) Canadian TV series of the same year starring Corey Sevier, which also needs to be checked. I also have the 1940 b&w movie, which was the 2nd remake on my sailor suit blog (boy rating 3). Novel by Louisa May Alcott, sequel of Little Women.

Comment:
Zachary Browne, I think alone is this room. Nice wooden bed and furniture. He has a younger film sister (~10 yo, played by Caitlin Wachs), but probably she has a room for her own.

I don’t remember the complete movie. Pic is from the trailer.

Rating 5-6 for now. Maybe farm/rural setting?

Also on my bib overalls blog including the 1996 first movie.

All movies needs to be rechecked more carefully, especially film 1. Film 3 also has people in bib overalls (very young and old) but probably the first movie is the best.

Comment:
Some single beds but also this dorm (Scottish boarding school) with at least 8, 10 or more beds in 2 rows. Metal beds, but one in the lower row is larger and wooden. Pic 1 from s2e10 (also shown up to s2e13). Starring Simon Gipps-Kent, Peter Vaughan-Clarke and others. Pic 2 from beginning of season 1. Some more beds (future setting, space station and regular setting) like a blue room of a man (same ep like pic 2).

Very interesting series, although I don’t like the early 70s. Also nice kilts, shorts and silver coveralls. And shirtless scenes.

After finding a trailer of Thursday’s Child (soon on my sailor suit blog) starring Simon Gipps-Kent, I found this one.

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 6 for now.

Comment:
At least this older boy in this room. There are some other kids, but I don’t know who sleeps in what room. An 11 yo girl has a younger brother. Farm setting (here ?)

One cabin has around 4-5 beds, but I think grown-ups live there. Was there also a hospital later?

Although I don’t like the 70s, rating 5-6 for now.

Also on my overalls blog (f,m rating 4).

Correct title: Tajemství proutěného košíku.

Update: Stranger Things (2016)

strangerthings-s2n

Another interesting bed in s2e1. Obviously a bunk bed. Set in 1984.

One young boy, maybe 12 yo Noah Schnapp sitting in the lower bunk using the walkie talkie. He has an older brother in the series (4 years older). Not sure who sleeps where.

I still haven’t checked all episodes.

Main entry, previously rating 5 (also recently updated on my overalls blog)

Comment:
A nice room and an interesting, wooden high sleeper of the main character Karl, played by Jonas Holdenrieder.

Has been aired yesterday, available on the ZDF mediathek.

First I thought of a bunk bed. No desk below as usual but pillows, so someone can sleep below him.

In the original 1966 novel, the main character is 11 yo and has 9 yo twin brother and sister. I think no siblings here but friends. English title: The Little Ghost, Swiss German: S’Chline Gspängst. Also starring Uwe Ochsenknecht.

Great movie, handsome kids nice plot and setting, rating 6-7. Unfortunately only few and brief bedroom scenes. Also soon on my pigtails blog.

Comment:
I think this is Francisco Nascimento (rear bed) and maybe Antonio Pedro Figueiredo in this room. Not sure if they usually share this room. Setting probably in the 1980s, but the white metal bed looks much older (more like the 1920s or even earlier).

The scene might look very interesting, but there’s just a very brief scene, the younger boy first sitting on his bed.

Quite interesting movie, but there are even better movies from Joaquim Pinto. Only one younger teen boy here. English title: Where the Sun Beats.

I’m still searching for my unknown Italian assumed coming-of-age film, unknown #9 on my sailor suit blog. I also have checked “Uma Pedra no Bolso” once more completely as it looks very similar. Can someony exclude “A Idade Maior”(1991) ?

Rating 6 for this one.

Comment:
At least one, simple wooden bunk bed and also at least 3 more separate beds (not sure if in the same room but probably). 2 beds are wooden as well, one bed is a simple guest bed out of steel. Is this inside the hotel Nautilus? There’s also a plot of a summer camp outside and a tree house and 2 kid gangs.

There are maybe 2 brothers (regular) sleping in the bunk bed. Some other beds are probably taken from other rooms.

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie. English title: I Didn’t Do It!

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 6) and soon on my shiny shorts blog, rating ~5.

I like bunk beds, but I think few good bedroom scenes if any.

So rating 5-6 only.

Rating: 6/10

Comment: Charlie Langendries as redhaired Boule wearing overalls in this Belgian 1970s room. I think no siblings. Not sure if other rooms are shown like of his friend Pouf.

Nice and large yellow room. 2 more pics (opposite angle) on my bib overalls blog, rating 6 as well.

For this bedroom rating 5-6. The other movie needs to be checked as well. In the comics, Boule is just 7 yo.

Comment: Nice 70s hotel room with at least large 2 beds. I don’t know how many kids sleeping in each room. Probably The Desert Breeze Motel / Fabens Inn Motel in Fabens, TX. Later there’s also another hotel in Houston shown. At least Miguel and Jose are brothers in the movie (not in real life).

Great movie series. I only have the 1979 TV series on my bib overalls and shiny shorts blogs and the 2005 movie on my shiny shorts blog.

Most boys are quite young, and it’s just a motel. But not bad.

So rating 6 for this room. Probably even higher for the movie itself. Nice Baseball clothes. Cream white pants and also dark blue ones. Needs to be rechecked.
