I might buy it too.
I've had fun over the years watching it.

I saw it for the first time at the THEE-ater with my mom and brother in 1976. I BAWLED my ass off when little Bonnie died and when Melanie died. Hattie McDaniels was the best actress in the whole film IMO. And that's a pretty impressive statement considering all the great perfomers in it.

I'll never forget this one time I was at a friends house in SF watching it. This one guy (white boy) just kept going on and on and on about "oh this is so racsist that, and so racsist this". This other guy at the house (who was black) and I were busting up. Every time Prissy or Mammy would say some shit we would crack up and imatate them. Uptight White Boy (UWB) was throwing a fit. The higher he climbed up on his soapbox the worse me and the other guy got. We were about to run into the kitchen and wrap dishrags on our heads and sing "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" when out hostess finally told UWB to shut the fuck up.
