Comment: Some, mainly younger boys in shorts, most notable these 2 boys in dark blue and dark green shorts. Maybe not shiny as set in the 1960s. Few scenes at 17 minutes. One older boy or young man in black shorts and a teen girl in dark blue shorts.

So rating 3-4 only. Also soon on my bedroom blog.

English title: Over the Ocean (Beyond the Sea), Hebrew title: מעבר לים



Update: The Love Boat (1977)


I have briefly rechecked this episode (s1e3) and uploaded a better, complete pic of this one, 16 yo Scott Baio shirtless in wet, white shiny shorts with 3 red stripes (not sure if these are Adidas).  Also showing Kristy McNichol in white shorts but probably not shiny.

I have briefly checked some episodes of season 1 , but haven’t found any other scenes of interest.

Also recently 2 episodes on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, rating up to 3).

Main entry here, rating 9 (maybe now a bit lower) at


Update: Diff’rent Strokes


While updating my bib overalls blog, I found 2 more episodes with shorts.

Some teen girls in s1e22. Most shorts might not be shiny including light red, yellow, pink and medium blue. At least 2 girls in dark blue or similar shorts which are probably shiny, also sitting. And one younger girl in tight shortalls.

In s7e22 there’s a shirtless, black teen boy/young man in tight, medium blue shorts.

I don’t like any of those. The girls are quite interesting. Rating ~3-4.

Main entry, rating 3 (older teen boys)

Who in shorts: boys ~10-17 ?
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes
Clothing occurence: low+
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
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.

Junior High School


Musical. Short film
Year: 1978

Clothing occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Some boys (including P. David Ebersole) and older teen girls in dark green shorts, not sure if shiny. At least one girl and one boy (not Ebersole) in dark green Adidas shorts. One in 70s shorts (look shiny to me), most others in tight, plain green shorts.

As announced on my updated posts on my bib overalls blog (f/m rating 7), I found some clips on an “official” Facebook site. And so these nice scenes including sitting scenes of the boys (also more close-up).

This movie is 37 minutes (7 songs).

Rating 6-7.

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 Steele Stebbins in colorful board shorts and Skyler Gisondo in red swim shorts. Ed Helms in blue/white, non-shiny shorts.

Should have been aired some days ago, but hasn’t. So I don’t know the complete movie, yet. Pic from a short YouTube clip.

I like the 1983 movie (shorts scenes, beige, pink, jeans, but I think none shiny). Maybe supporting actors?

Rating 3 for now only. (Mainly board shorts).

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.

Comment: Some few young men/older teen boys shirtless in different shorts (maybe not all are shiny) including dark green (also sitting) and white Adidas  (white with red stripes). Also 70s style shorts including white and light blue. Pics 1, 3+4 from the beginning. One young lady in yellow 70s style shorts (scene at ~18 minutes). Definitely also cotton and ripped off shorts at least white and jeans.

I only have checked this briefly.

Typical movie of it’s kind. Few good scenes, mainly at the beginning. Probably no younger actors.

So rating 3-4 for now only. I think not officially on DVD.


Update: Fun House (1988)


Some more scenes of the US Fox’s Fun House. Some interesting actions like piggyback, kneeing and wheelbarrow race. Maybe all pics from 1990.

Pic 1 from YouTube clip called FFH-02 (also with older girls), pic 2 from FFH-22, pic 3 from FFH-08, pic 4 from FFH-19.

Sorry, I’m quite busy and running out of movies.

Main entry, rating 7
