Ok. I’ll throw this out at you. Just learned about this yesterday from another poster. Turns out the early Shirley Temple films were damn awful in how they treated the kids on set. She was 3 when they made this. Now, in the youtube comments there’s a LOT of downright shocked folks. Maybe I’m blind, but I don’t see it. I grew up with Our Gang and stuff on TV so there’s probably stuff I _should_ be shocked at but I’m not. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsCQ0t-3t1I

Only thing that jumped out at me was the black kid having the dice on his diapers. That’s about as racist a dogwhistle as I’ve seen. But that’s all that jumped out at me.
