Comment: Looks like a rather small attic room/dorm with I think at least ~3 or 4 beds. Probably set in the girls’ boarding school. Starring Veronica Cartwright (“The Birds”) and Karen Balkin as girls.

I found this some time ago and don’t remember much.

Quite interesting room. But I prefer color movies and brothers.

Rating ~3-4 only.

Country: Spain
Who in bedroom: David, Carlitos ~10
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: I think 2 boys in this room in wooden beds. Not sure about their names. The blonde is probably David Munoz (or redhaired Oscar Canada). The other, chubby boy with short hair in pic 1, I think not from the band, is probably Rodrigo Valdecantos. Maybe they are brothers in the movie?

I only have checked this briefly. But I think rather few good scenes, mainly or only at the beginning. Also all in blue coveralls.

Rating ~4-5 for now.

I have some other movies on my bib overalls and shiny shorts blog.

Update: Hank Zipzer


I made a better pic (this one from s1e2) also showing better the bed. Previous pic had a poor camera position (on the floor). Nice, modern blue bedroom.

Also recently been updated on my bib overalls blog (girl also in later seasons). The bedroom is still looking the same in the final season 3. I don’t remember the room of the sister.

Main entry here, rating 3

Kind of beds: single ?
Available on DVD: yes

Comment: Patrick Renna (“The Sandlot”) is shown on this bed and in this colorful bedroom. Not sure if it’s his. Looks more like a room for a little kid (sibling ?) or the teen girl Samantha.

Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 6) ans my pigtails blog, rating 5.

Nice family film, but the teens are quite old. Interesting room, though.

Rating 3-4.

Comment: Richard Morgan, I think alone is this bedroom. Pic from ep 136 (season 3), so around 19 or 20 yo. He has a sister, a bit younger and an older brother, but I think both with rooms for their own. Probably also other locations maybe bunk beds (of soldiers ?).

The series is currently being aired on Bibel.TV.

I don’t like this series set during WWII. But interesting bedroom and clothes like knickers.

Also on my bib overalls, pigtails and bedroom blogs.

Rating 3 for bedrooms only.

Country: UK
Who in bedroom: boys ~ 9-10 ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: VHS only ?
I own: no
Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: First I think a boy in a room with s single bed, then a small dorm with 5 or 6 or even more wooden bunk beds at a boarding school. At least 3 bunk beds on this right side and at least 2 on the opposite side. Plot is a bout choir boys.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s but the furnitures in pic 2 look like the 70s. 1955 novel by William Mayne.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4.

For the bedrooms, rating 6-7.

Update: Les Parent


I had to think about this great series, but in Germany there were only the first 2 seasons shown. So, I’ve checked some episodes of the later seasons.

I found rather few bedroom scenes. The oldest brother Thomas still has a room for his own (dark blue walls with a Che Guevara poster, unpictured).

Pic 1 is from s3e12 showing the same messy room of Oli, now ~13 yo (left) and Zac ~10 yo like in the earlier seasons.

Pic 2 from s4e20 showing 11 yo Zac, maybe in the same blue room. I think, I only have seen one bed. Maybe Oli now has a room for his own or Zac is in Oli’s room? Or Oli sharing a room with Thomas?

Pic 3 is from s5e5 again showing Zac but in a light grey and yellow room with one bed only.

Main entry rating 5 (series much better, but Oli looks much older in later seasons)

Comment: Birgit Komanns as boy Kurt in a wheelchair, I think alone in this 1970s room.

Great and famous movie, also with a boy in Lederhosen (other blog, rating 7).

I don’t like much the 70s.

So for the bedroom rating 3-4 only. Novel by Max von der Grün

There are 2 modern, poor sequels, I have the 1st one
