Comment: There are mainly older teen boys wrestling, some wearing sweat pants and dark blue and red short over them. Also grey shorts but not shiny. One younger boy (pictured) in dark red shorts with a thick yellow stripe. Not sure about the fabric and if really shiny. One very brief scene of him, I think shirtless in the locker room. Another brief scene of the shorts earlier, also close-up.

Famous movie starring Robin Williams as grown-up Garp, but I always watch these scenes at the beginning. I think the setting is in the 1950s there. As there are few shiny shorts movies set in the 50s, I include this as well.

Very few good scenes of the young boy.

Rating 3-4 only.
