Comment: Clint Howard, I think sleeping alone in this 1960s farm bedroom.

Not bad, but nothing special. I’m still searching for the Gentle Ben episodes showing Ron Howard in bib overalls. Brothers in real life, but I think a relative or friend in the series and Ron only appeared in 2 episodes. Not sure if the same room is shown in the series as well.

For the bedroom rating ~4 for now only. I only have checked this briefly. Probably few good scenes of the room. He’s very young and I don’t like him.

Update: Dennis the Menace (1959)

dennisthemenace-n

As announced, Dennis and another boy (I think Billy Booth as Tommy) sharing one bed or sheets. Maybe they are on the floor? There’s also a 3rd friend (young Ron Howard). Not sure if he sleps there as well. At least not in the same bed.

Must be from s1e13.

Main entry, rating 5

Vägen till Gyllenblå!

vaegentillgyllenbla

Sci-Fi TV series, 5 ep
Year: 1985-1986
Year in film: Future
Country: Sweden
Who in bedroom: boys, girls ~10-12 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds / dorm
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: no
Rating: 7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Some boys and I think girls in one dorm with rows of beds close to each other with little curtains over the heads. Located on a different planet.

Very interesting Sci-Fi series. Also including skinny dipping scenes. Handsome blonde boy.

I don’t know the complete series. Interesting dorm, strange beds, clothes and plot.

Rating ~7-8 for now. I think not on DVD. Script by Norwegian Roar Skolmen. Aka “Veien til Gyldenblå” which is also the title of his 1985 novel which would be interesting as well. But I think quite rare as well and maybe not translated. He also did some other interesting movies. One soon on my shiny shorts blog.

Comment: At least one young boy, I think alone in this 50s bedroom. Even in color.

I found this during research. More movies from Encyclopædia Britannica (EB Films) and similar educational films on my other blogs, especially the overalls blog (list 62).

Rating 3-4. Available on YouTube. Entry on IMDb (what is unusual for these).

Some more movies coming soon (mainly b&w).

Who in bedroom: Harry 9, Henry ~6
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Henry Thomas (1 year before film E.T., see also that entry) and younger film brother, played by Carey Hollis Jr.  sharing one bed. Looks like a wide, white metal bed with high side pieces. 1944 US farm setting. There’s also a young visitor (Eric Roberts as sailor Teddy). Not sure, where he slept. Maybe in the same room as well. But he’s not a relative. And I think not sharing the same bed.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog (rating 6) and my sailor suit blog, rating 5.

Sorry, I haven’t made better pics of the room. But obviously a typical, nice farm room.

Rating ~5-6. Movie even better.

Comment: Jeremy Miliker, I think alone in this room with a low, obviously selfmade blue high sleeper.

Also on my bib overalls blog (pregnant woman rating 3).

For the bedroom rating ~3-4 for now. I missed the 2nd half of the movie. The boy is quite young. Interesting bed and room though.

Kind of beds: separate beds

Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: 2 brothers and one sister sharing this room (Nathanael Saleh, Joel Dawson and Pixie Davis). Set in the 1930s as this is a sequel to the 1964 classic (which is set in the 1910s, no entry yet). Nice pajamas and short, white union suits.

New in cinemas. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5 for now.

I often prefer the classics. But probably a nice, but typical modern family film.

Kids are quite young. At least another brother/sister entry.

Rating ~4 for now.

Happy Christmas to all may readers!

Comment: I think Sasha Mylanus in this attic bedroom. He also has a sister, probably with a room for her own.

Has just been aired. Nice, but typical Dutch movie. I don’t like this boy.

But nice colors. English titles: The Amazing Wiplala, Help! I’ve Shrunk the Family.

Rating ~4-5.

Also today in Die Pfefferkörner: 2 black brothers sharing one bed (s15e7).

Comment: Again 4 boys sharing one bed. But this time 2 in each direction (pic 2 heads at the foot side, obviously Buckwheat and maybe Froggy.) Other 2 are Robert Blake and maybe Happy (Mickey Laughlin). Maybe it’s the same bed than in other movies.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found many MGM Our Gang movies on facebook.

This movie also soon on my other blog, rating ~5.

Not bad, but boys are quite young, rather few scenes, so rating ~4-5.

Main overview here b&w/colorized, rating up to 6
