that and the fact that there weren't many black actors back then

Weren't there black actors in Of Mice And Men and Gone With The Wind

The black character in "Of mice and men" was a cripple that was beat on and got nasty things said to him, that's why they put him in there.

That's the character, the actor himself was just an actor.
But still, the fact remains that there were still black actors at that time.

There probably weren't a lot of black roles back then, though. Most motion pictures were aimed at white people, and if they seen a black person they would be brought back to reality and be taken out of the fantasy setting/setting of the movie. Ergo, there weren't a lot of black actors in comparison to white actors. But I'm making a lot of assumptions, here. I could be completely wrong.

You just missed an opportunity to say Blactors.

So I said it for you.

That movie was five layers of bad.

IMO, Mila Kunis wasn't a good choice.

No one was. Whoever did casting should go dig ditches for the rest of their working lives.

Bad blondegrizzly! Bad girl! Don't you know to google **** before you write it?

Apologies about that. Had one too many beers and failed at a cheap joke with a terrific lack of American geography (i'm a scotsman btw). Still i'm looking forward to the film.

No, just no. Kansas is in the center of the contiguous United States.

themoreyouknow.jpg actually a black woman tried out for the wizard of oz but didn't make it because she was black so she made another movie called the Wiz whose cast was all black people because they wanted to fight the powah or something like that.

It's actually propaganda to stop kids running away from home.

It was never intended to be a kids story. It was an allegory to the attempt to institute a bimettalic standard in the 1890s

First full-length movie with that much color.
