Memphis Theater Cancels "Gone With the Wind" Showing As Being Too #Triggering

They used the word "insensitive."

ne of Hollywood’s iconic films is under some serious scrutiny in Memphis, Tennessee. The city’s historic Orpheum Theatre is pulling showings of Gone with the Wind after the 1939 classic was deemed as “insensitive.”

Victor Fleming’s film was part of their summer series programming. After the first screening on August 11, the Orpheum received numerous comments about the film which prompted them to drop it from their 2018 series.

Of course.

I wonder if they know that when they say "Punch a Nazi" they're inviting people to punch them.

See the Carol Burnett parody of Gone With The Wind. It's on Youtube, I think. Anyway, she wears the famous green dress made out of the drapes with the curtain rod still in it.

It's one of her funniest moments. The others include the "Nora" Desmond parodies.

So you admit to being a racist, then....................

Glad we got that out of the way.

This new world can be so confusing at times.

When I was a kid, my now 83 year old mom said that GWTW was her favorite movie, too.

I never knew until now my mommy was a racist.

Wonder what she told our black neighbors who's kids she babysat about a hundred times. At our house next door. And they often ate dinner with us, too.

The horror, the horror.

71 Men slapping and roughing up women happens fairly often in older films. I was watching a movie on TCM the other day from the 1950's. Man and a woman started arguing. I thought to myself "she's gonna get slapped." I've seen enough of these old film noirs to know what's coming next. Sure enough, a few seconds later "whack!" Are all of these going to be the next problematic films to be purged?

73 We went to see this at the Orpheum two years ago for my mother's 60th birthday. It was an incredible experience, if you haven't been. Old-timey calliope (I think?) played before the film, there was an intermission...all that, plus the layout of the theater, is just something you don't get anymore at the movies.

I saw this a couple days ago and told my mom about it. We discussed it and finally she said, "Well, it never occurred to me that the movie was offensive, but I guess for people who aren't coming from the same background as me...." I cut that straight off and told her I didn't care about those people. Because I don't.

This is a classic example of why the culture wars have to be fought. The Left is out to make individuals police their own thought and internalize the idea that they are unknowingly oppressing the minority-of-the-week. We simply cannot give an inch on things like this, cannot even concede that the Enemy might have a point. It must be "no quarter" from here on out.

And then there is our corrupt national media that plays right along with the new book burners. Did you know, for instance, that 73% of black people rank Gone With the Wind as a good/very good movie?

103 You all relize we are run as a country by a small percentage of Leftists, and everyone runs around worrying what they might do to set them off.

This is how and why the Klan started. No, seriously.

After the (Southern) slaves were emancipated, the meme around the North and among pro-Unionist southerners was, we got to uplift the blacks in the South RIGHT NOW or else they'll go Saint-Domingue. ("Hayti", as it was spelled then.)

The recently-decommissioned whites in the CSA army took the tack, if they's can misbehave, we aim to misbehave worse.

Eventually the North blinked first and let Jim Crow happen. Because the Southern whites misbehaved worse.

The South didn't go Hayti, but it did end up in a generations-long pattern of stagnation and brutality. I'm not here to judge which would have been worse or what could have been done better, since I'm not American.

108 I've never been a big GWTW fan, unlike many of the friends. I first saw it when I was 12 or 13, and saw it a few more times in my teen years, but then hadn't seen it for many, many years. I was always embarrassed by the Butterfly McQueen character - she was just so irritating and stupid. As an adult I always felt uncomfortable about the black characters, so I didn't watch the movie for years.

Then, 10 or 15 years ago my niece got the Blu-ray edition for Christmas. A few days later she asked if I wanted to watch it with her, so I did. I was frankly surprised that the movie wasn't as bad as I'd remembered in its depiction of the black characters. Yes, it's definitely a movie of its time, but it's still a great movie. I might need to watch it again soon.

(And the funniest thing about watching it with my niece - after two hours the first disc ended and the "Intermission" sign came on the screen. My niece shouted, "Intermission?!? You mean it's not over yet?" She had no idea it was a four hour movie.)

Men slapping and roughing up women happens fairly often in older films. I
was watching a movie on TCM the other day from the 1950's. Man and a
woman started arguing. I thought to myself "she's gonna get slapped."
I've seen enough of these old film noirs to know what's coming next.
Sure enough, a few seconds later "whack!"

Are all of these going to be
the next problematic films to be purged?

113 I watched a lot of reruns of MASH when I was younger, because that was what the local CBS station put on after the news Saturday and Sunday nights. To me, it's all but unwatchable now. Much of season one is just badly done, two through five are decent, and there are individual good episodes after that, but it's increasingly a blubberfest about how the U.S. is so terrible for fighting the noble North Koreans, etc. Hawkeye is the worst, but the others aren't far behind.

I hope MeTV does a tribute to Richard Anderson.

He was in just about every damn TV show of the '50s and '60s.

He played Lt. Steve Drumm in the last season of Perry Mason. The actor who played Tragg had died, I think. They had a another actor playing the cop role for a while before that, but had Anderson take over the homicide detective antagonist role for the last one.

131 I saw GWTW for the first time entirely about 20 years ago. My sister had a copy of it so we watched it. I had seen bits and pieces of it over the years. I hated it. One of my first comments about it had my sister laughing. I said the Union couldn't get down there fast enough and kill these effete twats. It was during that 'party' at the beginning of the movie. Scarlett O'Hara needed to be shot. She was awful. The perfect ending would have been, after that little speech and with that iconic shot of her at the end of the movie, you'd hear a gun shot and she would drop. A Union sniper got her. The guy who played her cuck husband died in WWII. He was a British commando. I thought that was interesting.

161 They are working hard to destroy "our history". But it is OK because "our history" has white folk, so EVERYTHING in our history is boiled down to "white supremacy".

Even my lawyer "Republican" FB friend (and real friend from a couple decades back) agrees Robert E Lee history is only White Supremacy", even though he was against slavery.

So actual Africans that sold the slaves to a few of 'us" are wonderful and they are to be admired as the brothers of American African Americans. But Bob Lee that opposed slavery and preferred a transition that would have been better not just for whites, but probably for blacks that suffered terrible AFTER the war. So he is evil, yet Lincoln that said he didn't care about what happened to blacks, he is pure?

I mean, you can definitely see some of it in his character, but I don't remember B.J. saying anything more preachy and antiwar than Hawkeye, Klinger, or even Col. Potter said from time to time. It's been a while since I've seen an episode, though, so possibly a fresh viewing would make me feel differently.

There have been several iterations of the Klan. Three, I think, but I can't remember the details of the delineations between them.

The early iteration was basically a paramilitary wing of the Democratic Party in the South. Just like the IRA terrorist wing vs the official party, and other similar instances where there's an upfront "respectable" party, but with a group of thugs to act as enforcers.

I was just noting the direction of the show after Stevenson and Rogers left and he came in, as well as the coincidence that he is a rabid America-hater.

The dialogue on the episodes are one thing, but the tone and themes are something else. And by the end , there was virtually no comedy, at least in the traditional 70s sit-com sense.

It was dark, gloomy and depressing, as well as self-loathing.

Posted by: mark1971 at August 31, 2017 09:09 PM (xPl2J)

That was a (quickly dropped) holdover from the book MASH, on which the movie and then the TV show were based. I've always thought it was funny that the author, whose name I can't recall at the moment, couldn't stand the TV show because it was so left-wing. There was a quote from him somewhere, to the effect of "No one in his mind would want war, but I was in a war and I think I know more about it than a bunch of actors blowing their runny, self-righteous noses."

Moral equivalence between the Commies and our military leaders (see when Hawkeye went down to the peace talks).
Major ignorance of actual events...or maybe they just ignored them out of sympathy for the left.

Yeah, there's an enormous difference between the tone of the first seasons and seasons 10-11 in particular. I've always thought it had more to do with the change in showrunners, though. Larry Gelbart directed the first four seasons, then there were two more whose names I forget--one for season five, and then another for 6-11. That's really when the humor goes away. Plus Alan Alda wrote and/or directed a number of the episodes in that back half, and those tended to be especially gloomy, IIRC.

I appreciated the history lesson - we fought the fascist German nazis in WWII!

Here's some more history for the scrunt - the Italians were the fascists, and the Stalinist soviets used 'fascist' as a perjorative label for their enemies because it was hard to deride the socialist Germans for being socialist. You know, just like you do.

There was a similar quote. A character actress who often played black maids in the 30 and 40s was asked if it was demeaning. She said something like better to play a maid for 500 dollars a week than to be one for 50 dollars a month. I thought that showed a nice appreciation for reality.
