Despite Disney's many musical hits, its famous songwriters didn't always hit the right notes.
While other Disney films are getting disclaimers, cultural critics explain why the controversial Oscar-winning Uncle Remus movie should remain locked in the vault.
It was reported earlier this week that the 1946 animated-live action movie Song of the South will not be appearing on new streaming service Disney+. The studio is also planning to remove the controversial scene from 1941’s Dumbo featuring the singing bird character Jim Crow, named after the black face character created in the 1800s, and which later offered up a title for racial segregation laws. While some have described the decision as being a symptom of political correctness, others have criticised Disney for trying to erase previous wrongs, as if they never happened.
