This song actually won the 1947 Academy Award for Best Song and James Baskett received an honorable award for his performance as Uncle Remus.
Where did you obtain an HD copy? I thought this only ever made it to VHS and LaserDisc.
Stick this movie on your streaming service Disney. I dare you.
For all that's holy PLEASE upload the Brer Rabbit scenes! Would be nice to finally see em in good quality.
Interesting side note about the film: James Baskett, who plays Uncle Reamus, was not allowed to attend the world premiere of the film. Why? One can only guess in that time period.
It's not a slave movie, is it? I thought it was about sharecroppers in the Reconstruction-era south.
Everyone in this clip seems happy
The movie takes place after slavery. At the end of the movie Uncle Remus decides to leave the plantation and starts walking down the road during broad day light, which is something a slave would never do.
