Reviews
Mine: I liked this movie a lot when I saw it. I was about 8 at the time. I liked the story of the outcast little boy. I have no idea why the movie has generated such controversy that I will not be able to see it again.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Lonely, misunderstood little boy, living on a plantation in the Old South, finds his only happiness in the tales spun by Uncle Remus. Some may find story cloying, but it serves as framework for three terrific Disney cartoon sequences featuring Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and Brer Bear (based on writings of Joel Chandler Harris). Superb blend of live-action and animation, sincere performances (Baskett earned a special Academy Award for his), and tuneful songs including Oscar-winning ``Zip a Dee Doo Dah'' make this a treat. Available only on Japanese import laserdisc.
