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.

Rating: 6/10

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.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl rating 5).

Rating 6 for the bedroom.

At least these 2 brothers in 1985 ep 2, segment “Het Straalschotelmonster”. Small attic room, wooden beds aligned at 90 degrees.

I don’t know all episodes. Probably also at least one brother and sister shown at the intros.

Very interesting, rating at least 6-7.

Comment:
At least one bed in this bedroom, I think from 19 yo Rick, played by Zach Galligan? Also starring younger siblings River Phoenix and Heather O’Rourke, all shown in this room next to Molly Ringwald as well but probably with rooms for their own. I haven’t noticed the other rooms.

Nice 80s movie and bedroom. And handsome River Phoenix.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Heather O’Rourke, shortalls rating 5-, soon be updated) and soon on my shiny shorts blog rating ~5.

Rating ~5-6 for the bedroom.

Aka “Surviving: A Family in Crisis” and “Tragedy”. I think it’s still not officially on DVD.

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.
