Disney-Land s19e11+12. Johnny Whitaker
Year: 1973
Year in film: 1970s ?
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Leonard ~11, Alfie ~13
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: 13 yo Johnny Whitaker (“Tom Sawyer”, right bed) and 11 yo Scott C. Kolden (“Me as Chimp”) as brother Leonard sharing this bedrom. There’s also an older friend (Jean-Michel Michenaud) and a teen girl as baby sitter. Whitaker looks younger than 13.

Quite interesting, especially Scott, but I don’t like the 70s colors nor Johnny with his curly hair.

Probably a nice and funny detective movie and rather untypical Disney movie, but I only have checked it briefly.

Rating ~5 for now.

Update 2: Woof! (1989)

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

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.

Heimweh… dort wo die Blumen blüh’n

Heimatfilm, Rudolf Prack
Year: 1957
Year in film: 1950s
Country: Austria
Who in bedroom: boys ~9-11 ?
Kind of beds: separate, dorm
Available on DVD: VHS only
I own: no
Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Several choir boys in a large dorm with typical simple 1950s metal beds.

I think, according to the plot this should be the Vienna Boys Choir (Wiener Sängerknaben), but credited as Mozart Sängerknaben. Probably only dubbed.

Few good scenes and not even Lederhosen (nor sailor suits).

Also on my bib overalls blog (woman, rating 2).

Quite poor movie and not on DVD either.

For the “bedroom” rating 3-4 only.

Rating: 8/10
Rating: ********
Comment: Kieran Culkin (Biddle, right bed) and film brother Erik von Detten, both 13 yo but Kieran is younger looking, sharing this 1950s wooden farm bedroom.

Very interesting ranch movie. I like Culkin, but not von Detten.

Also on my Western blog, rating 7 and soon on my pigtails blog.

For bedroom scenes rating 7-8 for now. Needs to be fully rechecked.

Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: By coincidence another hospital TV series which is currently being aired on BibelTV. Both pics from s1e5 (1993) with a handsome boy wearing an ear ring.

There are typical hospital beds and small rooms, but also strange, older looking metal beds (for younger kids ? in a dorm)

Interesting series, but also with older teen boys and I only have seen this episode.

For now, rating 6-7. German title: Die Kinderklinik

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.

Josh and S.A.M.

Drama starring Noah Fleiss
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Josh ~13, Sam ~8
Kind of beds: separate ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Brothers Josh and Sam, played by Canadian Jacob Tierney and Noah Fleiss, I think sharing this room (or maybe have separate rooms ?). Sorry, I don’t remember this movie and have to recheck it.

Looks like a typical, modern 90s bedroom. I think few scenes as this is a road movie.

Rating 4-5 for this bedroom for now only. Movie rating maybe even higher.

A Christmas Story (1983)

christmasstory-bed

Famous family Christmas movie
Year: 1983
Year in film: 1940s
Country: USA, Canada
Who in bedroom: Randy 9, Ralphie ~12
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Ian Petrella (on left) and older brother played by 12 yo Peter Billingsley as 9 yo Ralphie sharing this 1940s bedroom. Unusual early setting for a Christmas movie.

I found this scene by coincidence but have to recheck this movie for daylight scenes.

Also on my bib overalls blog rating 3 (Randy) and my Western blog rating 4 (Ralphie).

For the bedroom rating 4-5 for now. Both boys are young and I don’t like Peter Billingsley. Interesting and funny movie though. Especially the tongue stuck at a frozen pole.
