When Shecker arrives at the camp with his father in a flashback scene the other boys, including Goodenow,are all standing near each other.Which implies Goodenow is already with the guys in their cabin. But in another flashback scene Cotton brings Goodenow into their cabin saying he will be staying with them in the cabin and introduces them to the other guys including Shecker who is already there, but according to the earlier flashback scene should not be.

I think I'm going to like it here. The other cabins, everybody was so normal.

I saw this film when it was released in 1971 (when I was eight) and it made quite an impression on me. Some really nice acting, great music, and an interesting (yet simple) story. It's amazing how it has stayed with me all these years. But meaningful films tend to do that. I was lucky enough to see this film again tonight. Though I viewed the film through 42 year-old eyes, it still had an impact. I was saddened to hear that Barry Robins (who played "Cotton") passed away in 1986. He was quite an amazing actor. (It's interesting to note that Robins, who played a 16 year-old, was 26 when the film was made!) He reminded me of Sal Mineo, another fine actor who left us far too soon. Anyway, I just wanted to comment on this fine little gem of a film. If you get a chance to rent it, I hope you will...and enjoy.
