I wonder about 'Roots' which has such violence, even the Master selling off the slave's daughter. History?
They all have good aspects, but sensitivities usually don't devolve to tolerate them any more.
GWTW is one. Mandingo, Roots, Blazing Saddles, are some others.
It's been a long time but I thought Blazing Saddles was a Satire that made racist white folk look awfully and hilariously stupid. The scene where Cleavon Little holds a gun to his own head "I 'm so smart - and they're soooo Stupid" or however that line went.
I mean Mel Brooks' character was completely inane - who would have thought he would have made a more sound and intelligent 45th?
