Comment: Adam Butcher around 15 or 16 as 14 yo Ralph first shirtless in and outside a pool in wet, dark, almost black appearing loose-fitting swim shorts near the beginning. Also a younger boy in beige/ yellow swim shorts. Both also sitting on the ground. Ralph and other boys at PE in light grey cotton shorts climbing up a rope. Dry, light green swim shorts of Ralph at 38 minutes. Maybe the same as before? Later running in dark blue and black track shorts. Also some men in different shorts including blue and white.

All shorts are probably not shiny in the 1950s. So that’s why I hesitated to add this movie. Best is of course the funny scene in the pool, probably everybody knows. Also underwater scenes. Dark shorts often appear at least shiny when wet. Similar shorts in “Simon Birch” set in the 60s (rating 8).

Quite boring movie, and in fact only 2 brief scenes of interest.

Rating 5-6 only. I don’t watch this DVD often.
