Today marks the 71st anniversary of Song of the South. The movie premiered at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, Georgia on November 12, 1946. There hasn’t been much news on the movie front, so if you hear anything please let me know! Take a step back in time and view photos of the movie’s premier, or check out the memorabilia section.

I’m continuing to collect Song of the South memorabilia and have at least 10-15 new items waiting to be posted to the Memorabilia section. Most are from other countries including Spain, Australia, and Italy. I’ve been collecting this memorabilia since 1998, and I’m continually amazed at how much I’m still discovering! This just goes to show how widely publicized and promoted this movie from the 1940’s through 1970’s.
I’m also working on a “newest additions” page/area where you can see the latest items added to the memorabilia database, and a search page, so you don’t have to scroll through every category. The database is getting that big! Also, a couple of visitors have noted that the Miscellany section is empty. I apologize for that, but I’m still trying to figure out what I’ll be putting in there. Items will be added soon!
I’ve also started playing around with HTML5. My web site has adapted over the years as screen resolutions have increased (my original site was designed for 640×480 screens and was written in HTML 3.3!) and now that demographics have shown a major shift towards mobile devices and tablets, I’m working on making this site more mobile friendly. I have a lot of work and testing to do, and I don’t have a ton of spare time but I hope to make it a reality in the coming years.
Thanks for visiting! I’m always open to suggestions, so if you have an idea on how to make the site better, please feel free to reach out to me.
