Comment: One boy, I think Luke Ward Wilkinson (not sure, maybe Jack Montgomery ?) alone in this nice, colorful room. The setting is, I think in the 1910s, so very colorful for this early time.

For this bedroom, rating 4-5.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~7.

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.

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.

Comment: Peter Billingsley, around 13 or 14 yo (but younger looking)  in this typical 80s bedroom. I think no siblings. Scene at 53 minutes.

After finding it for my Shiny shorts blog (rating 5, f/m) and rechecking “A Christmas Story (1983)”, now also an entry here.

Very interesting 80s movie. Although I don’t like Peter Billingsley.

For bedroom scenes, rating 5-6 only.

Comment: I think this is the messy room of main character 12 yo Simon, played by 11 or 12 yo Maximilian Ehrenreich. I think no siblings. The other two boys are his friends. Very funny movie. In this scene they practising cutting bananas.

Small but quite modern room, although wooden bed and furniture.

I even bought this movie on DVD. It has been aired on TV soon after the DVD release. Interesting plot and handsome actors, especially Ben and maybe Clemens. I like freckles.

Movie rating ~7. Bedroom rating ~5.

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.
