Comment: I think this are 10 young cowboys (I always thought 12 ?) sleeping in wooden bunk beds in this cabin. Age range ~8-16. 2 horizontal bunk beds on the left and 3 vertical ones on the right. One metal bed for Mr. Nightlinger. That makes 11 in this room. I think only more in dormitories and orphanges. Later also sleeping outside on the ground in sleeping bags.

Very good movie and scene (this at 45 minutes). The boys asking if “everything” of Mr. Nightlinger is black. Some boys wearing long johns, others nightshirts. Starring Clay O’Brien, Sam O’Brien and others.

Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 4). One of my favourite Westerns. Featuring many boys in many scenes which is very rare.

Rating 8-9.
