Trivia

Myrna Loy later regretted having made a blatantly racist film like this, calling it "shameful". Producer/writer Darryl F. Zanuck was said to have atoned for it by making such anti-racism films as Gentleman's Agreement (1947) and Pinky (1949). See more »

Burn every film, recording, or book that is deemed racist?
12 December 2019 | by glennsmithkSee all my reviews

Santayana wrote "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." There was a time actors in blackface were accepted in society. It even seems to have been acceptable in more recent times by certain politicians who now feign contempt of it. The calls for censorship are as foolish as the act was when it occurred. Get over it. This movie is a relic of American cinema. It has its place in history.
