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: 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).

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.

Comment: At least one teen girl in shiny, dark blue Adidas shorts (Handball or Volleyball style, not splitted in the stripes) and one or more teen girls in dark blue 70s shorts. One younger looking girl in red shorts (maybe not shiny) and some other shorts like not shiny light blue and pink or maybe white ones.

Quite interesting. I thought these kind of shorts appeared later.

Not bad, but I prefer males.

So rating 4. Main Afterschool overview

Comment: At least this young boy on a beach, shirtless in dark blue shiny swim shorts. Probably some more actors (f, m). But I don’t remember the complete series. And usually they wore speedos or tight trunks in the 70s.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 6) and on my pigtails blog.

Has to be rechecked later. Rating 3-4 for now only.

I assumed very few good scenes. Main characters are older teens.

I also found several rare 70s and 80s TV movies on YouTube like from LCA (The Learning Company). Some also have shiny shorts (mainly grown ups), some coming soon. For more infos see my other blogs, especially my bib overalls blog.

Comment: One boy, maybe Jake Chiasson in dark green board shorts and some few more boys from a distance. Also men, mainly in red swim shorts (lifesaver) and board shorts. Maybe some are shiny?

Has been aired in yesterday’s Schlefaz movie series.

I haven’t seen the complete movie, yet.

Handsome boy, but not in shiny shorts.

Needs to be checked completely for other (supporting) actors.

Rating ~4 for now.

On IMDb there’s another 2016 movie called Atomic Shark. Also starring David Faustino as Fletcher but with different other directors, actors and not Jake Chiasson.

Comment: Some boys (and maybe girls and men?) in at least medium blue and red 70s shorts (but maybe not shiny). Red shorts also sitting, but side view. Also Daniel Lobo probably in shiny white shorts and sleeveless white/red shirt in 1986 (I currently can’t access this YouTube vid mdf0YFuqsrk). Pics should be from episode 1 of 1977.

Also boys, girls, men and women in bib overalls or similar on my other blog, rating 8 (soon to be updated). Also nice rooms.

Vids of the 80s are quite rare and most vids have a bad image quality. There are also some (publicity) pics.

So needs to be rechecked.

Update: also shirtless scenes in red shorts in 1985.

Comment: Some boys in different shorts. As the setting is in 1965, most or all shorts are probably not shiny. But some appear as such. Nice light blue shorts.

I bought this DVD several years ago for my bib overalls blog but was very disappointed (rating 2). Lucas Black not appearing in overalls although shown on the cover.

Movie itself is not that bad.

Rating 3-4. I haven’t seen it for years.

Comment: At least one teen boy in red 70s shorts (pic 1 from ep 1, maybe some others in other shorts), 2 boys in rare orange, light brown or similar shorts (pic 2 from ep 8) and one older teen boy in red, maybe Adidas shorts (pic 3 from ep 1, briefly and partial shown). Unfortunately both YouTube clips have a quite poor image quality. I already have corrected the colors.

Correct title Racheta albă. Novel by Ludovic Roman.

Rather few good scenes.

So rating 3-4 only.

Also an older teen boy in bib overalls (soon on my other blog, rating 3).

Comment: At least ~17yo Julien Crampon in 70s style yellow shorts. 8 yo Max Clavelly in red shorts also running, but maybe not shiny. Also some other funny scenes like peeing scenes.

I only have checked it briefly. But I assume few good scenes. Pics from the trailer.

Rating 3-4 for now for the shorts scenes. Movie itself probably even higher. But there are better movies. The boy is too old.
