Comey film by Joe Dante. John Goodman, Omri Katz
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1962
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Gene ~16, Dennis ~8 ?, others
Kind of beds: separate bed, singles
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: Britain Simon Fenton as Gene (pic 1, sitting on left/upper bed, scene near the beginning) sharing a 1960s room with his younger film brother Dennis (Jesse Lee Soffer). Pic 2 showing Omri Katz phoning with a girl (both in separate rooms).

Very interesting movie set in 1962. I found it after finding Jesse Zeigler in North (1994), see my bib overalls and Western blogs. Nice 60s haircuts, clothes and props. But few and brief scenes.

I like this movie. Although Simon Fenton (and Omri Katz) are looking quite old and the other boy quite young.

Also soon on my Western blog (Dennis), rating ~5-6.

Sci-Fi TV series, 5 ep
Year: 1985-1986
Year in film: Future
Country: Sweden
Who in bedroom: boys, girls ~10-12 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds / dorm
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Rating: 7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Some boys and I think girls in one dorm with rows of beds close to each other with little curtains over the heads. Located on a different planet.

Very interesting Sci-Fi series. Also including skinny dipping scenes. Handsome blonde boy.

I don’t know the complete series. Interesting dorm, strange beds, clothes and plot.

Rating ~7-8 for now. I think not on DVD. Script by Norwegian Roar Skolmen. Aka “Veien til Gyldenblå” which is also the title of his 1985 novel which would be interesting as well. But I think quite rare as well and maybe not translated. He also did some other interesting movies. One soon on my shiny shorts blog.

Comment:
2 brothers, played by Frederick Koehler and Talesin Jaffe (as blonde Kenny, right bed) in this, mostly messy room and a bed styled like a car. Also a toddler girl, maybe also sharing this room? There are also other views like side view and bird’s eye (tidy room). Good colors. Blue sheets fit great.

How could I miss this nice 80s movie?

Also soon on my shiny shorts (grown-ups ~ rating 3), Western (boy) and overalls blogs (toddler, boy, man).

There’s also an interesting bathtub scene and maybe more good and funny scenes.

For the bedroom, rating 6-7.

Comment:
Around 3 beds (or are there 2 rows ?) in this small dorm. Starring Scott Baio. Pic from ep “Luke Was There” aired in 1977 (s2e1). 47 minutes (but YouTube clip is just 32 minutes). I think the room is a larger hall (no wallpapers), with wall separators and a corridor on the left. So in fact there are more beds.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found several rare TV movie from LCA (The Learning Company) and similar.

1973 novel by Eleanor Clymer. Set in NY.

Rating 7. I have to search for more episodes. I don’t like much the 70s but interesting room, setting, plot and actors.

Comment:
Julián Bravo as Juliancito/Tom Sawyer and his younger film brother sharing this small looking room with wooden beds. Nice Mexican adaption.

I only have checked this briefly. I think few scenes of the room.

Also soon on my pigtails blog.

Rating ~7-8. I like this room. Beds are close to each other.

Comment:
The family has 9 kids. I think 7 boys and 2 girls. I think usually 4 boys in one tiny, half of an attic room. So there are at least 2 or 3 more bedrooms. The 2 sisters, around 14+5 yo also shown sharing a bed. Maybe some of the younger brothers also sleep in the girls’ room. Most boys are around 10-11 yo. Oldest ones 12-14. Youngest boy ~5 yo.

Great movie with also other scenes of interest including shirtless scenes, a chubby boy, a boy in bib overalls and others in aprons.

Nice, Waltons-like family and table. But could be better.

Rating 6-7.

More infos and pics on my bib overalls, just updated, rating 6.

Comment:
One shirtless, darkhaired boy (Neil ?) in the upper bunk and his boy cousin who visits him in pajamas, hiding his neurodermatitis. Nice boys’ talk.

I think the darkhaired boy has an older sister. I wonder if she usually sleeps in the lower bunk. I doubt it. Or is it empty or has he brother who is away?

I don’t remember other episodes and have one other entry, rating 3.

Comment: William Cuddy (Aaron, upper bunk) and Ricardo Hoyos sharing this room and bunk bed.

Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Mark ~17. Danny ~12
Kind of beds: single beds
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: Different locations but very interesting, wooden 70s bedrooms. 17 or 18 yo, but younger looking Lance Kerwin (pics 1+2) I think alone in this room, but also visited by 2 friends. The 2 brothers (Danny and Ralphie, played by Brad Savage, pics 3+4  and Ronnie Scribner),  I think they have rooms for their own, but not sure, but Ralphie becomes a vampire anyway. Also a hospital bed of green metal and bedrooms of grown-ups (soon on my shiny shorts blog).

I like the rooms, very nice props and colors, but I think only single beds (except the hospital). Great story by Stephen King and handsome Lance Kerwin. I also have to check the later adaptions.

Rating 7-8.

Country: Italy
Who in bedroom: boys ~11-16
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: I think 4 beds with shirtless boys including Vito (Nando Triola), I think the youngest, around 11 or 12 yo. Others are much older. Street kids, maybe (partly) orphans and not brothers.

Great movie and some nice scenes, but I prefer bunk beds, brothers and US movies.

So for the bedrooms, rating 7-8 only.

I have seen it long time ago, but checked it completetly but at high speed some months ago for my unknown Italian movie (on my sailor suit blog). English title: Vito and the Others.
