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:
Eckehard ~10 yo (Stefan Naujokat) and his older sister Ilona ~16 from a single mother sleep in a larger room, dived by a curtain. A younger, blonde boy, Andreas ~6 yo, their future step-brother probably also sleeping there. Wooden, older beds.

Typical East German movie. I don’t like the 70s and the other brother is too young. Interesting room, though.

Rating 3-4 only.

Comment:
Orphaned French boy played by Sebastian Dungan in an interesting white room and white metal bed. Also 2 sisters, Melissa Francis ~10 yo and probably Arlene McIntyre sharing a room with separate wooden beds.

Also on my bib overalls blog (update coming soon, girl rating 5) and my shiny shorts blog (boys+teen boys, rating 6).

For the rooms rating 4-5. Nice 80s movie but I prefer bunk beds and more brothers.

Comment:
Some single beds but also this dorm (Scottish boarding school) with at least 8, 10 or more beds in 2 rows. Metal beds, but one in the lower row is larger and wooden. Pic 1 from s2e10 (also shown up to s2e13). Starring Simon Gipps-Kent, Peter Vaughan-Clarke and others. Pic 2 from beginning of season 1. Some more beds (future setting, space station and regular setting) like a blue room of a man (same ep like pic 2).

Very interesting series, although I don’t like the early 70s. Also nice kilts, shorts and silver coveralls. And shirtless scenes.

After finding a trailer of Thursday’s Child (soon on my sailor suit blog) starring Simon Gipps-Kent, I found this one.

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 6 for now.

Comment:
Some boys (around 20) at different ages in underwear (including tighty whiteys) in this rather small dorm, set in Buenos Aires in the 1980s. Simple, white and black metal beds. Probably the beds are even much older (1950s ?)

Quite interesting, but I prefer other movies and don’t like much dorms.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Title means Black Cat.

Comment:
Nick Julius Schuck in this modern, colorful childish bedroom in yesterday’s s3e2 when he returned home.

Also previously in a hospital bed (s1+2), next to other teens but mainly young adults. I don’t like much hospitals (often no good scenes and often no siblings) and currently don’t have tags (except when larger dorms).

Great series and very touching.

But for this bedroom, rating 3-4 only. Needs to be checked later for upcoming episodes.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 6. More infos there.

I think a young boy and his even younger sister sharing this nice, wooden, modern room. Pic from ep. 3. I think there are also other bedrooms shown (of their parents). Maybe the room looking similar.

I still haven’t checked all episodes.

Also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 3) and my bib overalls blog, rating 4.

For the bedroom rating 5-6. The kids are quite young.

A young boy on the left and a young girl sharing this nice attic room on a ranch. Not sure about their names, probably Jacob Fisher and Emma Roberts.

Also on my Western blog, rating 6 and my overalls blog rating 5 (same girl, woman). I almost forgot this.

Nice ranch movie and I have few with brother and sister sharing a room but they are quite young.

Rating 5-6.

Comment:
I think this is Francisco Nascimento (rear bed) and maybe Antonio Pedro Figueiredo in this room. Not sure if they usually share this room. Setting probably in the 1980s, but the white metal bed looks much older (more like the 1920s or even earlier).

The scene might look very interesting, but there’s just a very brief scene, the younger boy first sitting on his bed.

Quite interesting movie, but there are even better movies from Joaquim Pinto. Only one younger teen boy here. English title: Where the Sun Beats.

I’m still searching for my unknown Italian assumed coming-of-age film, unknown #9 on my sailor suit blog. I also have checked “Uma Pedra no Bolso” once more completely as it looks very similar. Can someony exclude “A Idade Maior”(1991) ?

Rating 6 for this one.

Comment:
At least one, simple wooden bunk bed and also at least 3 more separate beds (not sure if in the same room but probably). 2 beds are wooden as well, one bed is a simple guest bed out of steel. Is this inside the hotel Nautilus? There’s also a plot of a summer camp outside and a tree house and 2 kid gangs.

There are maybe 2 brothers (regular) sleping in the bunk bed. Some other beds are probably taken from other rooms.

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie. English title: I Didn’t Do It!

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 6) and soon on my shiny shorts blog, rating ~5.

I like bunk beds, but I think few good bedroom scenes if any.

So rating 5-6 only.
