Ironically, his performance cannot be seen in its entirety in the United States, as the Walt Disney Co. will not release the entire film on the home video market because of the controversial nature of the film, which was denounced as racist by the NAACP when it was premiered in 1946. A further irony is that the NAACP now has no public stance on the film.|
