Song of the South plays Philly


I don’t know how this happened, but I just found out that Song of the South had a public performance in the Philadelphia last Tuesday night. The Chestnut Hill Free Library showed it twice, apparently without protest. Sam Adams of the weekly Philadelphia CityPaper gave the film a plug with a nicely written overview.

Was this an authorized showing – or did they screen an old VHS? Can any institution book the film? When will Disney release the film on DVD? Inquiring minds want to know.
