SONG OF THE SOUTH - RARE DISNEY CLASSIC (1946)
Seven-year-old Johnny goes to live on a Georgia plantation with his mother and grandmother after the American Civil War, while his father’s away working in Atlanta. There he befriends the kindly Uncle Remus, and his live-action real life is interspersed with animated sequences as Remus recounts the various adventures of the trickster Br’er Rabbit. Starring: Ruth Warwick “All My Children”, Bobby Driscoll, James Baskett.
NOTE: This Disney film literally has dropped off the radar in recent years due to its contentious racial stereotyping. Uncle Remus isn’t a slave, but he is an Uncle Tom, and as of 2010, Disney’s line (via CEO Bob Iger) was that the film is “antiquated” and “fairly offensive”. This is a must for all Disney film collectors.
