Comment: I already have 2 pics, but from season 1 (1989). The new pics are from s8e8 featuring different actors. The main character is darkhaired Adam Roper as Rex (pictured on left) instead of Edward Fidoe as Eric and his older, blonde friend Monty Allan as Michael Tully (maybe the boy with the black suit and helmet ?). The other blonde, boy pictured is obviously someone else. There are now at least 2 beds, one looks like a guest bed. But the table looks similar. Maybe more locations shown?

Great series. Handsome actors. Unfortunatley still not on DVD.

Still rating 7.

Update: Islands in the Stream (1977)

islandsinthestream4

There’s also another location, with probably 3 beds for the three brothers, a bit later, in the middle of the movie. The 3rd bed of the older brother (also aligned horizontally as well) is on the opposite, right wall. 2 desks next each other at the north east, left to the door. Especially near the end of the movie, there are also some scenes on the boat and the bunks there, I think a 2 story bunk bed.

First I thought that the scene pictured would be a dorm and with 4 or 6 beds as the room looks quite large.

The other scene with the pillow fight earlier is much better, though. Now also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 4).

Main entry, still rating 7 at

Comment: There are 3 brothers, Tom (Hart Bochner, shirtless), David (14 or 15 yo Michael-James Wixted) and Andrew (Brad Savage, “Salem’s Lot”, “The Apple Dumpling Gang”), the younger boys in pajamas. They are sharing this room / cabin, (maybe on a ship but I don’t think so), more likely at a primitive beach house. Sorry, I don’t remember.

Nice pillow fight. Set in 1940 and/ or a bit earlier. Also at least David and Tom shirtless in swim shorts, including sitting and underwater scenes. (Shiny shorts blog, rating 4)

1970 novel by Hemingway. Oscar nominated.

Interesting scenes but movie needs to be fully rechecked.

Rating 7-8 for now.

Update: Also on a boat and another location. The final part is unfortunatly missing on YouTube. But I doubt even better scenes there.

Comment: 2 or 3 boys in this hospital room. I don’t remember their names nor the exact episode. Can anybody help? Maybe also other interesting scenes and actors in other episodes? I think, I’ve seen 3 boys, but maybe one is from a different room.

Nice scenes. The boy on the right undressing himself wearing tighty whiteys (and the other is watching).

I thought, I already had a post of this.

Good 80s series. 5 Golden Globes.

Rating 7 for now.

Comment: Samuel Costa and another person in nice, wooden beds. I think, he don’t have siblings. Maybe a friend or grown-up? I also remember another, colorful, room with his friends and also inside a tent.

I don’t remember the complete movie. Based on the 1980 comics by Ziraldo.

Another one from my VHS and also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 4). Soon on my pigtails blog, rating 6.

Nice room, good movie, so rating 6-7.

Comment:
180 city teens of LA at a mountain camp. 60 minutes. Very simple, selfmade wooden bunk beds. I think mainly older teens. Not sure if more than 2 bunk beds in each room/cabin. Maybe 4?

I found this (and one other) nice documentary on archive.org.

No entry on IMDb (but on tcm).

I only have checked it briefly.

Rating 6-7.

Update: Die Kinder vom Alstertal

diekindervomalstertal3diekindervomalstertal2

I found some few more parts on one of my VHS tapes. (Unknown episode).

In a later episode/season (s3 or s4 ?), Timo and Tobias now sharing a wooden bunk bed.

I wonder why? And why has the younger boy (Tobias, pic 2, wearing boxer shorts) the upper bunk? He’s even bullying his older brother. There are some new (young) actors in later seasons, but they have a big house. There are also girls, but I don’t remember their rooms.

Timo is much more handsome and Tobias now wearing braces and shorter hair.

Rating ~7 for this room. Main entry, rating 10 at

Comment:
Moritz Bleibtreu (obviously on the left) and his older (unknown) film brother in episode 25 (“Der große Bruder”, 1980). Probably also other bedrooms (in other episodes) including girls, but most kids are very young (5-6 yo).

I don’t like the 1970s nor darkhaired actors, nor very young kids, but nice room and age difference. Interesting series (these days).

I don’t remember all episodes, maybe there are even better bedrooms (bunk beds ?).

Rating 6-7 for now.

Also on my other blogs, rating up to 6 (for shiny shorts).

Comment:
Some orphaned Soccer boys in this dorm. Some boys sitting on the beds (even at least 5 sitting on one bed), some shirtless in shorts. Maybe around 12 beds. Dorm looking quite unusual, almost like a living room at the other angle.

Several good shiny shorts scenes including boys in pink. (Rating 8 on my other blog).

Rating 6-7 for this dorm. Nice 80s movie I found by searching for all 1983 movies on IMDb.

Comment:
Some, mainly younger teen boys shirtless at a summer camp. At least 2 or maybe 4 bunk beds in one cabin and I think 2 more separate beds (at least in some and/ or in one of the girls cabins). At least 3 or 4 boys in one room what would be quite few.

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie and have to recheck it.

Maybe not as famous as the 1980s original movie (rating 5), but at least nice wooden bunk beds and shirtless scenes and obviously a good horror movie to me. The other sequels still needs to be checked.

So rating 7 for now.

Next post in January.

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers!
