Comment:
Some boys and teen boys in different, tight shorts including white, black and blue. Not sure about the fabric. Probably not or not that shiny. Looks like typical Rugby clothes. Pic from s2e9.

Also older teen boys or young men in light blue, yellow, dark blue, black and white shorts in s2e20. Maybe others in shorts in other episodes?

I don’t know all episodes. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies.

Rating 4 for now only.

Also on my Western blog (rating 4).

Comment:
A shirtless boy standing and sitting in light blue shorts. Pic from the trailer. Also other boys in shorts including dark blue, green and white with stripes. And men also in swim shorts with a belt. One boy in shorts with H-style suspenders.

The setting looks modern, but it’s obviously in 1944 as there are also other people in historical swimwear shown. So most likely not of shiny fabric but cotton. (Sorry, I’ve seen that too late).

But the movie looks still quite interesting. But I haven’t seen it completely, yet.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Original title: Đavolji raj – Ljeto bijelih ruža. English title: That Summer of White Roses.

Comment:
David Mendenhall in 2 scenes in dark blue shorts with a rear pocket, maybe tennis shorts, maybe not shiny. 2 different shirts, including a white Adidas shirt with red stripes. Scenes at 36 and 41 minutes, including sitting.

Interesting movie, plot and handsome actor, unfortunately very few and brief shorts scenes. Has been aired some days ago, but I forgot to record it. So needs to be rechecked more carefully at slow speed.

So rating 3-4 only. Movie much higher ~6-7.

Comment:
A woman in I think medium blue 70s shorts (not sure if very shiny) and a man shirtless in shiny red shorts.

Very interest movie, novel by Stephen King. Great actors, props and plot (bedroom blog rating 7). But I prefer younger actors.

So rating 2-3 only.

For more infos, see my other blog. For another entry starring Lance Kerwin in blue/red swim shorts and some others in shiny shorts, rating 10, see the TOP#10 rank 4 and

Comment: At least one boy in longer red shorts, maybe shiny shorts. And another one on sitting in yellow, looks like shiny shorts. Also swiming in tighty whiteys and cycling scenes. Set in 1989.

I recently have updated the 1990 movie on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl rating 5).

So I found trailers and teasers of this remake.

Of course, I can’t say much more yet. Probably not as good as the original movie (at least not the actors) but at least interesting shorts.

Rating maybe 6-7 for now, maybe even higher (4 before I noticed the yellow shorts). But they also wore other clothes. Also a girl in shortalls, soon on my bib overalls blog.

As the title “It” might be hard to find later, I have to add Stephen King.

Comment: As announced, this earlier Langnese commercial. First, some older teen boys, maybe playing Basketball in different shorts, including dark blue, red and yellow.

A young lady cycling in tight shiny dark blue shorts (rear view) and at least some men jogging in 70s style red shorts. Maybe some more persons?

Probably most straight guys like the cycling lady. Not bad, but also very brief scene. The other boys or young men are less of interest.

The 1985 commercial (rating 8) is much better, including the song.

Rating 4 for this one. There are some more Lagnese, also later commercials, but I haven’t checked those.

Update: Unknown 11 – Australian movie or series

unknown11cunknown11d

I found these 2 pics, which are obviously from the same series (or movie). Also titled Australian 1990. Note, the same garden door. I still haven’t found any clips.

Maybe this was just aired in 1990 in Germany. Looks more like an early 1980s series according to the old cars. Also rare, the boy has crossed chains on his chest.

Somehow the blonde boy looks familiar. It must be much easier now, to find this one.

Comment: Next to some young men or older teen boys (also shirtless), there are 2 notable scenes of boys in this 1985 commercial. First, one boy in shiny white Adidas shorts with red stripes (side and rear view when running away after focussing a sunbeam through a lens to the hairy chest of the old man) and later a boy in light green (non-Adidas) shorts.

The white shorts are not splitted at the sides, I think Handball or Volleyball shorts. I think with inner briefs. I never own that one.

There are also other Langnese commercials with young men and young women in shiny shorts, coming soon.

This is maybe the most famous German commercial ever. No movie in the theatres without it and selling ice cream after it before starting the main movie. Nice song Like Ice in the Sunshine. But as usual, rather short scenes. I found it by coincidence.

Rating 8-9.

Comment: I thought, I already had this series. Several kids and teens in swimwear including shiny shorts and shirtless scenes. But many in speedos. At least an older man in light red shorts.

Pic 1 is from ep 11 showing an older boy in light blue shorts. Pics 2+3 are from ep 5 showing a younger and an older boy in dark blue, 70s style shorts. I don’t know all episodes. Maybe more and even better scenes, not sure about girls and women.

Rating 6 for now.

Also for a long time on my bedroom blog, rating 4.
