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).

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: 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).

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).

Comment: At least these 2 boys in swim shorts. Maybe more supporting (older) actors in the background. But most wearing speedos. Few and brief scenes at the outdoor pool. Also a brief peeing scene at the beginning.

Quite interesting. Nice swim shorts and a bit chubby.

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: Most of interest probably Lindsay Wagner in medium blue shiny 70s shorts, also sitting in season 3 (unpictured). I found one pic but couldn’t find this unknown episode online

https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/51777/bionic-woman-season-3-the/

Pic 1 showing some ladies in non-shiny shorts. YouTube clip called “Wonder Woman Spins! Third Season”. Pic 2 is from s3e1 of “The Six Million Dollar Man (1974)” showing a man, maybe Lee Majors in medium blue swim shorts.

Maybe more actors in other episodes?

Rating ~3 for now only.

Also both series on my bib overalls blog.

Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, TV recording

Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Some boys in shiny, orange shorts but very brief scene and mainly from a distance. Also 14 yo Oliver shirtless in black or similar swim shorts, also wet, mainly from a distance standing but also sitting. At the end main character 12 yo Johann Hillmann as Martin (pic 2 on left) shirtless in swim trunks (retro briefs), I think black as well. Jumping in the lake, but I think not shown wet and briefly.

Also previously on my bedroom blog, rating 4.

Quite good movie (plot). And I like orange shorts. But for the brief scenes rating ~3-4 only. I don’t like both boys. Martin and his haircut not handsome. And bully Oliver is too arrogant and quite old.
