Q: When I was 3 or so, my mother took me to see "Song of the South." My mother passed away shortly after, and I always wanted to have that movie, but was never on sale, because of WHAT? (Finally my son ordered one from overseas and gave it to me on Christmas.) This movie cannot be as bad as some of the movies today.
A: "Song of the South," the blend of animation and live action inspired by Joel Chandler Harris' Uncle Remus stories, has been controversial since before its premiere almost 70 years ago.
