Update: Stapelbed (Villa Achterwerk)


I finally found my tape and added this pic to it’s entry.

There were even much more kids in this bunk bed: 13. Many headshots. Kids are quite young ~8-10 yo.

Kids (boys and girls in pajamas and other nightwear) entering this rare bed, one at a time. Then they talk about one subject and their feelings. At the end there’s a pillow fight, also to the lower bunk, and a male voice says, that they should stop or he comes upstairs. Should be the dad?

VPRO production. Just in 1989.

Main entry, rating 5

Who in bedroom:
Neil, Michael ~12 ?
Kind of beds:
bunk bed
Available on DVD:

Rating: 7
/10  ?
Rating: *******
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.


This episode rating 7-8.

Update: Les allumettes suédoises


I have rechecked the complete series (rating 8).

Next to the great scene of Olivier and his Jewish friend David sharing one bed, there are also dorm scenes in ep 1 and ep 3 (ep 3 pictured). At least 12, probably some more beds in the dorm. Episode 1 has only or mainly dark scenes.

Also now on my bib overalls blog (rating 2, in fact an old man only but Olivier and a woman in blue aprons). Also soon on my pigtails blog.

German Wikipedia says 12 yo Olivier in 1932, French Wikipedia says 10 yo in 1930. Maybe in the novel only? Actor is 14 and/or 15.

Great series, main entry

Comment: At least this shirtless teen boy (wearing braces) in this modern room. But probably no siblings. Pic from ep 3. No entry on IMDb.

I found this by coincidence but haven’t checked all episodes.

Quite interesting and handsome actors. But I think rather few good bedroom scenes as this is an adventure.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Handsome actor. Interesting series and plot.

Looks like a typical bedroom.

Rating 5-6 for now.



Leider Lustig

Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: Marius ~10?
Kind of beds: high sleeper
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 4/10 *
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this handsome blonde boy in this bedroom with a high sleeper. Pic from s1e1 (guest Chris Tall). Probably his younger sister has a room for her own.

Unfortunately very few scenes of the room. And I think even fewer in later episodes, if any. Probably a studio room anyway.

Also nice sitting scenes of the boy in jeans.

I prefer bunk beds and siblings sharing a room.

Rating 4 for now only. Series is still running and available on the Mediathek.

Update: I think the boy is called Marius. He also appeared in later episodes. But obviously few scenes.

Country: France
Who in bedroom: boys 10-15
Kind of beds: rare bunk beds
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Next to the “beds” on the ship, I think mainly or only hammocks, there are also these rare bunk beds behind a wall opening, I think in a builing in ep 4. I only know wall niche beds in medieval and 18/19th century settings.

The bunk beds have (at least) 2 stories. Unfortunately, I haven’t noticed better views of them. Mainly wooden but with steel ladders. There are in total 12 boys (+ crew) but not sure if all sharing one room. Maybe some sleeping on the floor or in other rooms.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 6. English title: Western Lights.

Salem’s Lot (1979)


Horror film, 2 parts starring Lance Kerwin
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.
