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:
Looks like 2 different locations, as I only noticed one bed in pic 1 and 2 beds in pic 2. The main character is probably Iván Fernández as orphan Pedro. The other might be Miguel Angel Garcia, maybe a friend. But not sure who sleeps in the other bed. Maybe a room of the orphanage or foster parents?

Also other scenes of interest like a bthing scene.

1948 novel by Miguel Delibes. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 3. Another very interesting coming-of-age movie after Delibes (including sailor suit as well) is “Retrato de familia” (1976). Unfortunately, only 1 part on YouTube. Soon on my other blog.

Rating ~4.

Comment:
There are different movies and series and I don’t know them all. I have checked several episodes for my bib overalls blog (f, m rating 8), recently mainly the 70s and 80s series. Few or no notable scenes in the 70s.

Pic 1 showing I think Joao Vitor Silva, so in 2004 or 2005 sitting in beige overalls near an older teen boy or young man. There are 3 metal beds, not sure who sleeps in there, maybe the 3 boys. Old wooden furniture but room appears colorful. Clip called Wanessa no Sítio do Pica-Pau Amarelo – Parte 19.

Pic 2 from 2005 episode Cuca Assusta Pedrinho, so must be Joao Vitor Silva as well. Maybe the same bed, but I only noticed one bed in this room and the room looking completely different.

Unpictured a room with 2 older girls (+the Human Doll Emilia) in the same episode. White yellow pink.

I have to check more episodes, especially the 2001 series with different actors. Maybe also brother and sister sharing a room? Also on my pigtails blog.

Peter and Eva Hagenbäume (brother and sister in real life) I think sharing this room. Beds maybe horizontally aligned, also both shown sitting on the same bed. Nice pajamas scenes and other scenes of interest (swimming, bathtub).

Needs to be rechecked.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl rating 3). Novel by Ann Ladiges. Now available on DVD.

For the bedroom rating 4-5 for now (although I don’t like the 70s).

There are 2 young brothers, played by Dennis Ross and Lonnie Thomas and maybe both sharing this room. Vintage steel bed(s).

I’ve checked it briefly some time for my Western blog (rating 5), but don’t remember much.

Rating at least ~3-4 for now. Boys are quite young.

I think this young boy (Uri Alter ?) sharing this 1960s bedroom with his older film sister Mili Avital? He has to look away when she undresses.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, mainly boys rating 3.

Quite interesting movie but the girl is very old. Unusual late setting, Rating ~4.

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:
6 yo Susan Olsen (Cindy in The Brady Bunch) and 8 yo Mike Durkin sharing this room. Wooden beds and colorful sheets, both quite unusual for a Western.

Night shirts and bib overalls (boy only).

Also on my Western blog, rating 5 and my bib overalls blog, rating 4. They also both starred in s15e6 (Western blog) but I don’t remember bedrooms there.

Often young boys and girls used to share one bed. In s14e14, 2 kids, probably boys sharing one bed (coming soon).

Main entry, rating 5

Comment: 2 boys (twins Kalle und Kulle, played by Ralf and Rolf Lemcke) sharing this room and a bird. Wooden beds, horizontally aligned next each other. Pillows on the opposite sites. Also both shown in one bed but rarely. Pic from ep 2.

Also on my Lederhosen blog (rating 9) and my bib overalls blog (rating 2).

Episodes 3+4 will be aired next Monday. Episode 4 is set 5 years later. I only have checked ep 3-4 briefly.

I don’t like the 70s and the boys are quite young (in ep 1-3) and not that handsome. But quite interesting bedroom and good family series.

Rating even 5-6.
