The subject of race in Hollywood is too long a history to be contained in a single hour's radio program, but Saturday Cinema offers an overview.
Yes, it includes Gone With the Wind, because there is no way to talk about Hattie McDaniel's career and Oscar win without the score. It was a huge film for her. McDaniel talks about how she felt about he role, and how fellow actor Butterfly McQueen had a different view of the roles Hollywood gave her.
Also on the program, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Hidden Figures, 12 Years a Slave, Blackkklansman and more.
