Bless the Beasts & Children is a 1971 drama directed by Stanley Kramer and an adaptation of a novel by Glendon Swarthout of the same name. Six boys, Cotton (Barry Robins), Teft (Bill Mumy), Shecker (Miles Chapin), Goodenow (Darel Glaser) and twins, Lally I (Bob Kramer) and Lally II (Marc Vahanian), have been sent to a residential summer camp, Box Canyon Boys Camp. Each of the boys suffer from emotional problems and have conflicted relationships with their parents or guardians. The families of these boys hope attending the camp will help them resolve their issues. The motto of the camp is "Send us a boy...we'll send you a cowboy." The boys are all cabin mates at the camp. Immediately, the group struggles with authority and expectations at the camp. When they are taken to a field trip at a local bison farm, the boys are appalled to see the conditions the buffalo live in and their eventual fate at the slaughterhouse. When they arrive back at the camp, the boys are still reeling from what they saw and decide to do something for the buffalo.moreless
