Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this boy, 12 yo Aroma sitting shirtless in light blue shorts. Also other (non-shiny) colorful shorts. Set on the atoll of French Polynesia. Filmed in 1984.

I found this by coincidence on YouTube. 16 minutes. Roar Skolmen also did lots of other short films (no entries on IMDb like this one) and the interesting Sci-Fi series “Vägen till Gyllenblå! ” (bedroom blog, rating 7).

Rather few good scenes at the beginning only.

So rating ~4 only. I like light blue shorts. English title: Aroma from Fakarava.

Comment: Lauredana in pink shorts in the middle of yesterday’s episode 129. One brief scene only. I think also others shown (f,m) at the annual Turkey vacations. But mainly or only board shorts and probably boys mainly from a distance. I think also Jeremy Pascal, around 16 yo in board shorts there. Also young men like Peter in board shorts including in ep 129 and Florian in yellow or similar swim shorts. There were also at least 2 early episodes (ep 45 + (57 ?)), several years ago at an indoor pool, with younger boys. Probably also in swim shorts. I have to recheck this later.

I rember Lauredana also in (black ?) Adidas shorts or pants one or 2 seasons ago at the new house.

Very few (good) scenes, so rating ~2-3 for shorts only.

Also on my other blogs (overalls, bedroom, pigtails).

Info 91: Webfinds 1980 camp

As announced on my overalls blog, I found some few good photos.

I think at least a boy in light red 70s short sitting. Also other shorts ((teen) boys and young girl) but mainly or only not shiny including jeans shorts.

Comment: Shane Sinutko (“LHOTP, Soup and Me”) shirtless in light blue, I think shiny 70s shorts at a doctor (medical examination). I only noticed this very brief scene.

Not bad, but for the brief scene rating ~3-4 only, although I like light blue shorts very much. There’s an 1980 sequel called “Where Do Teenagers Come From?” where he wore bib overalls (other blog rating 5), but I don’t know that one completely. Maybe shorts as well?

DFE production (DePatie-Freleng).

Main overview


Update 2: Schülergeschichten


By coincidence, I found some new uploads with very good Adidas shorts in episode 6.

Including splitted shorts in red and dark blue. Also black Adidas Junior. And also 70s shorts in red and no name shorts in dark blue and medium blue.

Maybe I missed more scenes in other episodes?

Main entry, rating 8, maybe I have to give an even higher rating



A Different Kind of Winning

Country: USA

Who in shorts 2: teen boys/men
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Clothing occurrence: often
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: Mainly some skateboarding girls in blue, red, orange, yellow and other shorts including jeans shorts. Not sure about the fabric. Most look synthetic/shiny to me except the yellow ones. But probably not of thin fabric. Also (older) teen boys/young men in shorts at least in the background, mainly sitting (much fewer scenes).

Another rare short film from The Learning Company of America (LCA), I recently found on YouTube. No entry on IMDb. Starring Carabeth Burnside as main character Jody (pic 1 on left ?) and Billy Ruff (“Thrashin’ (1986)”, another Skateboard movie). Directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal. Sorry, I’m running out of good shiny shorts movie.

Happy New Year 2019!

Comment: At least 2 men in red shorts (coach in 70s style) and at least one man and lady in red shorts. Latter ones probably not shiny. Several men shirtless in speedos swimming at an outdoor pool. One interesting pair of turqouise speedos with 2 yellow stripes (at 13 minutes and at the beginning).

Directed by Peter Mark Shifter, produced by Elaine Halpert Sperber (“Robbers, Rooftops and Witches”, rating 10 on my overalls blog). No entry on IMdb. The Learning Company of America (LCA). Series: Learning to be human.

Rare movie available on YouTube.

Quite interesting but few shiny shorts and mainly men.

So rating 2 only.

Comment: Some members of this Austrian boys choir in different shiny shorts, also in long Lederhosen (other blog, rating 4). Nice green shorts. Not sure about the brands. The black might be Adidas.

Pic from a 2017 clip called “Der Zauber der Wiltener Sängerknaben Von La Scala nach Shanghai (Trailer)”. Aired at the 70th anniversary; probably the pic is from 2017 (or 2016) as well.

I don’t know the complete movie. But I assume (very) few shorts scenes.

Rating ~3 for now.

I wish all readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Comment: 2 boys shirtless in 1950s swim shorts. Dark red and dark blue. Also in the water and sitting on the beach. Of course, the shorts are not shiny. Also a girl in red shorts (not shiny as well).

But quite interesting. Encyclopaedia Britannica films (EB Films) as usual not on IMDb.
