First removed from HBO, now number 1 on Amazon – Film plus review – online magazine for film & cinema

The Black Lives MatterMovement has first consequences for the film and series industry: After as reported “Little Britain” was removed by Netflix and BBC, it also hit one of the great American film classics. “Gone with the Wind” from 1939, at that time multiple Oscar-winning and one of the most commercially successful films of all time, was removed by the streaming service HBO Max after a critical commentary on possible racism had appeared in the LA Times.

This decision is also interesting because at the 1940 Academy Awards, Hattie McDaniel was the first ever African-American actress to receive an award (Best Supporting Actress).
