Roots - Are They Going to Be Men or Not?
In the scene where the boys of the tribe are about to be circumcised, they are ordered to remove their loin-clothes. The camera only shows from the waist up on the closest boy. You are to assume this is because he's a bit "exposed" right then. If you look down the line of boys, because of perspective, the camera shows down to the knees on the last boys. They haven't removed anything! I guess they want to stay boys forever.
Special Requirements:
The first volume of the Roots movie and semi - sharp eyes

Good catch. They could have fixed that if the Manhood Training guy (he has a title, but I forget what it is) had directed his command specifically at the boys nearest to the camera (we'd assume he'd get to the ones farther away later).
