Song of the South

  • Film

Time Out says

A plantation in the Old South: young Bobby Driscoll learns of life through the stories of former slave Uncle Remus (James Baskett). This rather mushy combination of animation and live-action remains one of Disney's most controversial efforts. It contains magical graphic work - notably the standout 'Zip-a-Dee-Do-Dah' number - but racial stereotyping drew furious protests from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Hollywood's response? An honorary Oscar for Baskett.
