We bought a DVD of it on eBay, what, 16 years ago. It ended up being basically a poorly video taped version from a TV I think that had been digitized. I remember it from when I was a kid and it would come on the Wonderful World of Disney I believe on Sundays.

It was heavily promoted on VHS here in the UK in 90s when I was a kid and I have a copy of it, don't recall watching it very much though.

We probably got it from the same person.

I'll hint to my age. My grandmother took me and my brother to the big city (Savannah) where there was a theater for the 50th Anniversary of Disney Picture Studios. It was followed up by a trip later that summer to Disney Worlds' Magic Kingdom.

I have a poor transfer from a VHS to DVD but the lone remaining LaserDisc I kept from my collection is a Japanese import of the Laserdisc version of it. The video transfer of that is flawless. Since the audio track was not stereo, they had the left channel with original English and right with Japanese dub. The only thing that had subtitles were the songs which they did not dub.

Yeah I've seen it. Great movie. What a shame that it gets railroaded over and over again. James Baskett as the lead was an extremely rare thing in 1946 to have a black actor as the lead. I am afraid the more access to information we have the less we are knowledgeable about, it seems.

Hey, I'm on your side. It is ridiculous to have had it banned. Maybe you can download it somewhere on the internet but that is probably just about it. I am not a fan of deleting history.

One of the saddest things is that perhaps other than "When You Wish Upon A Star" the most well known Disney song of all-time came from this movie.
Want to hear tragic, read what happened to the person who sang when you wish upon a star

I've seen the movie, I can certainly see how people are offended by parts of it. The offensive parts have long ago been removed from the ride. I am not in favor of removing history, it is worth taking someone younger than me (I'm old) and using the movie to teach them about the past. HBO is now "banning" Gone with the Wind.

Yes...and while not “progressive”...I’m not sure it wouldn’t have ticked jim Crowe types off in 1948 for its subdued portrayals.

This is beyond silly. Today’s world is about two things:
1. Embracing stupidity and a lack of knowledge/wisdom
2. Mining the past for future grievances

And before I get labeled politically...rest assured I’m NOT that guy
