Has this film with Bing Crosby, Dorothy Lamour, Marjorie Reynolds and BillDeWolfe ever been shown on TCM? I remember seeing it in 1943 as a 12 year old and enjoying it. Is it so anti black as to be offensive in this day and age?

According to Wikipedia:

 

 

"Contrary to rumor, it has not been withdrawn from circulation due to racial issues(Crosby at one point appeares in blackface), but is simply one of hundreds of vintage Paramount pictures from the '30's and '40's now owned by Universal and not actively marketed."

 

 

Hope this helps.
