Gone with the Wind disclaimer on FOX Classics
"Scenes which depict racism are not endorsed by FOX Classics."
On Saturday night FOX Classics ran a disclaimer ahead of its screening of Gone with the Wind.
The screening was part of a tribute to the late Bill Collins, 12 months on from his passing.
It included Collins’ previous introduction to the 1939 film, one of his all-time favourites.
Amongst the praise he showered, Collins said, “Just take a look at this magnificent woman, Hattie McDaniel, the first black person to get an Academy Award. And she deserved it as Mammy in Gone with the Wind. You can’t imagine Gone with the Wind without her.
“And you probably can’t imagine it without Butterfly McQueen,” he continued.
“Butterfly McQueen what an extraordinary characterisation.”
