November 12th marked the 70th anniversary of Song of the South. The movie premiered at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, Georgia in 1946. I’m unaware of any related collectibles being released for the anniversary, so if you come across anything please let me know.
One reader also pointed out that the Song of the South Petition had been closed at Change.org. This is normal (they close petitions after a certain amount of time.) I have since reopened it so additional signatures can be added. We’re up over 2,000 signatures now; please spread the word.
I missed this back in July when it was published, but I’d like to feature this now: an excellent article over at MoviePilot.com written by Kyle Blanchette on why “Song of the South” Should Be Released Now. If you haven’t read it already, I would highly recommend doing so!
You probably noticed that the site isn’t getting updated as often as it used to. It’s hard to believe that I created this site over 15 years ago! Sadly I don’t have as much time as I used to as a young twenty-something, so my attention has shifted to other aspects of my life. That’s not to say I’m not listening though! Please always feel free to contact me with any Song of the South news or release rumors you might have.
That being said, there’s a couple of potentially interesting news items in the works, so please check back in the coming months! I promise I’ll update the site as soon as I have more info.
