Comment: I noticed 2 boys shirtless at a beach in shiny (?) shorts. One in white and another one in red. Red shorts unpictured, red pictures are trunks. Also other boys in speedos and trunks.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s, but at least the white shorts appear shiny and 70s style.

1955 novel by William Mayne. I assume very few shorts scenes. The plot is about a boys’ choir.

Also soon on my bedroom blog (bunk beds, rating ~7).

For shorts, rating 4 only. I think not officially on DVD.

Comment: Young Soccer boys outside at a coast. One team in mostly tight, white Adidas Junior shorts with dark blue stripes, the other team in plain white shorts.

Also boys in bib overalls (other blog, rating 3).

By coincidence I found this scenes. Probably a rather short scene (song “La pelota loca” by Teresa Rabal). I don’t know the complete movie but most of it and don’t assume (much) more shorts scenes.

As the boys are very young, rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Adriana Pantaleo in light red (or orange) swim shorts, also a man in medium blue or grey ones. Brief scenes in yesterday’s final episode 14 (s2e6a).

Next to the earlier Soccer scenes, finally another good one. (I might miss some scenes in earlier episodes as I missed some).

Nice pool scenes and leg exercises at 15 minutes. Also 2 handsome, blonde boys (at 11 minutes in the hospital but not in shorts).

Main entry, previously rating 3

Comment: Some, mainly younger boys in different shiny shorts, mainly 70s style including medium and dark blue, red and also modern longer, plain white shorts. Maybe some more colors, looks like black. Sitting but mainly or only from a distance.

Also shirtless and wet scenes in speedos (also sitting) but not shorts, so no tagging. Men and women in shorts, but maybe not shiny (or not of interest, mainly near the end).

I thought, I already had an entry as I checked this long time ago. I prepared a pic for my bedroom blog, but also still had no entry (coming soon).

Nice 80s camp movie.

Rating 4-5. Unfortunately rather few good scenes. Some scenes from a distance and most boys are very.

Happy Easter!

Comment: Some young, Italian Soccer boys in red and dark blue or more likely black shorts. Latter ones with red and white stripes. Also green shorts. Sponsor of the 1990 FIFA World Cup.

Searching for some Italian movies, I found this by coincidence.

YouTube clip called “Sequenze C5 – 27 Febbraio 1990 (HD720/50p)”.

Not bad. But as usual very few and very brief scenes. Rating ~4-5.

Comment: At least 3 boys in shiny appearing tight shorts set in 1985. 2 in dark blue shorts one in turquoise shorts.

I don’t know the complete movie. But there are better 80s shorts (like Adidas).

Also on my bedroom blog, rating 4. Nice and funny peeing scene in a wheelchair.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

As announced there are Basketball teams in the final episode 922 (March 28) in red, green and medium blue shorts. Home team including a girl I think in red shorts. Probably some more scene in upcoming episodes. Also handsome boys in black or dark blue shorts some days ago (~ep 901 ?).

Comment: One young boy in red or maybe pink shiny shorts. Looks like 3 stripes and must be Adidas Junior (but not sure). Unfortunatley, I only noticed around 2 brief scenes at 15 and 16 minutes.

I’m still searching for my unknown Italian movie, so I’ve started to recheck hundreds of movies, TV movies and series of the 80s. I already checked 872 movies (1987-1990 only). At least I found this and some few more.

English title: Along the River. Obviously not on DVD. I found it on YouTube.

Quite good movie, but for the brief scenes rating 4 only.

Comment: At least Mike Lookinland and Barry Williams in dark blue shorts, a teen boy shirtless in red shorts and a young man (Patrick Adiarte) in orange shorts or trunks. All shorts are tight and look shiny to me (although very early 1972 setting). Christopher Knight in light blue or similar shorts (not shiny) and also other shorts and 70s speedos. I think another teen boy or man in dark blue shorts. All pics from s4e2.

Great series, also on most or all my other blogs. Recently Chris Knight also in Gunsmoke on my overalls blog, rating 4.

For shorts rating 4 for now only. Rather few scenes. Other episodes and later movies also needs to be checked.

Comment: At least 2 or 3 boys in swim shorts in song “Zwemziek”. Unfortunately only briefly and partly shown in the background. Most boys wore speedos. Like in other episodes about swimming like in ep 6.

So rating 4-5 only for this episode.

My favourite song of this year is Ik ben toch zeker Sinterklaas niet.

Main overview entry, rating 8
