    Found this on youtube.

    The whole movie is now on youtube. If you never watched it do it now before disney removes it!

    YouTube - Walt Disney's Song Of The South Part 1

    What do you guys think. Is this movie really that bad of a film? I liked it.

    Saw it on TV a few years ago. Definately a product of its time, but its harmless family entertainment and its a crime that an oscar winning film is kept out of circulation just because Disney are too scared of the axegrinders.

    I have a bootleg DVD of it.

    In all honesty, it's not one of my favorite Disney films, but it has its great qualities. Uncle Bemus is wonderful and the songs are all classics. Whenever I rewatch it, though, I find myself skipping ahead to the Briar Rabbit segments, as the cartoons are the best part of the movie. Most of the live action stuff I find to be too dull or just irritating.

    Anyhow, aside from Disney-fying a rather unpleasant era of American history (though it takes place just after slavery, life for black people still wasn't the giant Cubscout Jamboree Disney presents it as), it really isn't the grim, evil, demonically racist movie that certain groups of extremists might have brainwashed the public into thinking it is.

    A shame Disney is so quick to cave to these sorts of people. Song of the South may not be my favorite Disney flick but it is certainly a classic that deserves to be preserved and admired for its positive qualities, not locked away in some vault for all eternity because Jesse Jackson says so.

    I saw this movie the last time they put it in theaters again, sometime back in the 80's.

    I really liked it then and have since downloaded a bootleg of the movie.

    "We can't release this movie again, people will kill us"
    "oh, come on, a few lawsuits won't..."
    "NO, they will literally kill us."
