Comment:
One teen boy, probably Michael Eric Kramer in this bedroom. I think no sibling? I only have checked this briefly. Maybe there are also other rooms shown?

I don’t like much the 70s, but it’s an interesting room and cult movie of the late 70s. Needs to be rechecked more carefully.

Rating ~6 for now.

Also on my bib overalls blog, recently updated, rating 5 (m,f).

Comment:
There are 7 siblings or even 8. The main character is a boy called Laurie, ~ 6 yo at the beginning, soon after WWI, played by Stephen Grendon. Semi-autobiographical novel by Laurie Lee (*1914-1997). He has one younger brother, around 1 year younger and at least 2 older brothers. One sister died in 1915. So I think 3 more sisters (in probably another room). Pictured are obviously 2 different rooms. Pic 1 has I think 2 beds, pic 2 just one. Nice metal beds (brass ?).

Pics are set in the late 1910s or ~1920. There are 2 other actors of Laurie as teen boy and young adult. There are also 2 later movies, which also needs to be checked but probably aren’t better.

Interesting movie and bedrooms. Nice farm setting. But the boy is very young.

Rating ~6.

Comment:
2 boys sharing one bed, probably Tom on left (James A. Osmond) and younger film brother James Jarnigan as John D. Fitzgerald, who also wrote the novels.

Nice 1890s, Western-like setting and clothes, night shirt and barefooted. In pic 2 there are at least 2 beds. On the left. horizontally aligned as well are sitting 2 older boys, one probably Tom, the other maybe a friend?

Also on my bib overalls blog, soon to be updated (rating 7).

For the bedrooms rating at least 6-7.

Needs to be rechecked more carefully.

Comment:
Brothers Elijah and Micah Nelson (obviously brothers in real life) sharing this room. 2 wooden beds, typically parallel aligned at the edges of the room.

11 minutes (without credits rather 9) but many scenes of the beds, mostly in the dark.

Quite interesting. The younger brother is going to the older boy trying to wake him up and jumping on his bed but not sharing the same bed.

Rating ~6-7.

Comment: Johnny Whitaker (pictured) and his half-brother Sid (credited as cousin Sidney on IMDb, played by Joshua Hill Lewis) probably sharing this room. Nice wooden bed. Low posts.

I don’t like Johnny Whitaker with his red curls and don’t like much this musical version.

So I don’t remember more bedroom scenes. Probably there aren’t many.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Tom+Huck+others, rating 6).

For the bedroom rating ~6 as well.

Comment: First I think a boy in a room with s single bed, then a small dorm with 5 or 6 or even more wooden bunk beds at a boarding school. At least 3 bunk beds on this right side and at least 2 on the opposite side. Plot is a bout choir boys.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s but the furnitures in pic 2 look like the 70s. 1955 novel by William Mayne.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4.

For the bedrooms, rating 6-7.

Highway to Heaven – s4e2

highwaytoheavens4e2highwaytoheavens4e2b

Danny Pintauro at an orphange in s4e1 and yesterday’s s4e2 (1987). Also later in a room for his own.

Typical adoption/runaway/dog plot but very handsome actor.

Not bad. Small dorm. At least 4 beds in this room.  I think 3 or 4 close each other, not sure if one or 2 rows. There’s at least one at the other side. 8 kids are shown, so maybe 2 rows of 4. But there are obviously more rooms.

Main entry rating up to 6

At least 12 or 13 yo Matthew Blakstad as adopted James in ep 4 in this interesting bedroom. Another boy called Christopher Reilly starring here but I think not in this room.

I think only this episode of interest.

Very interesting, rating at least 6-7.
