Year: 1979
Year in film: 1970s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Mark ~17. Danny ~12
Kind of beds: single beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
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.

Drama
Year: 1991
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Italy
Who in bedroom: boys ~11-16
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
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.

Rating: 7/10 ?
Rating: *******
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

Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Tom ~20, David 14, Andrew 11
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 7/10 ?
Rating: *******
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
