Comment: Some boys at PE in different shorts including light blue, dark blue and white. Not sure if all shorts are shiny. Probably the light blue ones?

I found this slideshow by coincidence on YouTube. The man in the red shirt doesn’t belong to the movie. No entry on IMDb. And no infos elsewhere.

I can’t say much more, yet. Hope for a complete upload.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Mormon movies often have handsome boys. Also other movies on my other blogs (mainly bib overalls).

Comment: Some Soccer playing older teen boys or young men in (shiny) shorts including at least one in blue Adidas shorts (not sure if shiny). Other shorts include white and red (not Adidas, maybe not shiny). Also shirtless scenes and younger boys including green shorts (probably not shiny).

Also on my bedroom blog (bunk beds, rating 5).

I only have checked it briefly at high speed some time ago.

Many awards. Aka Sicario, la ley de la calle. Direced by Joseph Novoa aka José Ramón Novoa.

Rating 2-3 for now only. There are better movies.

Comment: At least this boy, I think it’s B. Bradenton Harper in dark blue, longer shorts with white borders. Also shirtless like shown on the DVD cover. Shorts appear shorter in the water. Different pair?

I haven’t seeen the complete movie, yet. But looks very interesting.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Country: UK
Who in shorts: boys ~10-19?
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Clothing occurence: always
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Boys and teen boys in red and medium blue shiny shorts.

Thanks Fisty Flynn for suggesting this and pointing out that this was a real TV series. No entry on IMDb (but on BFI).

Most clips on YouTube showing boys around 15 yo and most clips have a very poor image quality. Pic 1 from a clip called Donnelly V Hendry. Pic 2 from Belt 3 Bout #1 showing younger boys.

According to New Scientists, there were 1100 boys aged 14-19. But obviously, there were also younger boys. I can’t say much more like how long the series was aired (should be 4 or 5 seasons) or # of episodes.

I don’t like much boxing.

Rating ~5-6 (mainly for the younger boys).

Alles Paletti (1985)


TV drama. Levin Kress
Year: 1985
Year in film: 1980s
Country: Germany
Who in shorts: Kai ~14 ?
Who in shorts 2: other teen boy ?, men
Available on DVD: no
I own: no, partly TV recording
Clothing occurence: very low ?
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: The main plot is about a Soccer manager and there are probably some Soccer scenes in maybe Adidas shorts but probably men only. The son, played by Levin Kress (pictured) and Peter Lohmeyer playing table tennis inside. Some other boys shown sitting (mainly or only from a distance), I think at least one in shiny black shorts, maybe Adidas. But not sure.

I think few or very few (good) shorts scenes. Also scenes without clothes.

I had a VHS recording, but later deleted many boring parts. I thought, I captured some pics or clips, but currently, I can’t find them. So I will update pics of the shorts later.

I don’t like this boy with curly hair and his Austrian voice. Few good scenes. There are better movies.

Club der roten Bänder – s3e4

Clothing occurence: low
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: I knew it. Next to the swimming scenes (speedos and trunks) there’s also this Soccer (PE) scene in s3e4 with teen boys in long shorts in many different colors. Nick Julius Schuck (middle, behind another boy), both in medium blue shorts.

I think not all shorts are shiny or that shiny. Most likeley shiny are the green and red ones. Not sure about light grey. Black and most dark blue ones probably not shiny.

2 years later Nick Julius Schuck is around 15 and very thin but still handsome. I even forgot to watch the recent 2 episodes. The episodes getting again extremely touching. Now also on my bedroom blog, rating 3.

For this brief scene rating 4-5. Main entry, rating 6 at



Update: De bal is rond


I found some more scenes of the described yellow and light grey shorts. And yesterday also orange shorts, I didn’t remember and found earlier.

Shirt labeled with “lotto”, not sure about the shorts but probably. Brand or sponsor?

Rating ~7 for this new pics. Also teen girls in shiny shorts, but I have to search for more pics.

Main entry rating 10



Unknown 23: German series or movie sat1 2007 ?


Unknown movie or series
Year: 2007 ?
Year in film: 2000s ? 1990s ?
Country: Germany
Who in shorts: boys ~10-11 ?
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no

Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Some boys in a locker room and probably playing Soccer (or Handball) before (I think PE). One in dark blue Adidas (Junior ?) one in medium blue shiny shorts, another one in black ones (maybe not shiny). One boy pulling down the shorts of one boy revealing that he wore at least 3 pairs of underwear (light grey retro shorts+2 mini briefs above). I don’t remember why.

Searching for something else (Alles Paletti (1985), coming soon), I found these 3 pics.

Currently, I can’t say much more. Digitized or recorded/aired in 2007 on sat1. Maybe earlier production. But I think not 80s as most boys wore longer, modern, colorful cotton shorts/bermudas including purple. One boy wearing a Nike Air shirt which can’t be in the early 80s. Can anybody help or identify the female (teacher)?

Could be a divorce drama. If it’s a series with a teacher, it might be found easily. But I fear it’s a TV movie. I captured the pics only almost 1 year ago, and obviously didn’t knew the title then and forgot to post them. I think captured from a brief clip from one of my DVDr or backup discs. I currently don’t have the time to check once more all of my discs or tapes.

A very similar scene is in Achterbahn (ep 33) (but that wasn’t aired on sat1).

I also uploaded a (descent) pic of Dallas.
