Offensive Now Maybe Not Then1
12 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, this short is about Shirley Temple going to Africa to humanize the cannibal population. That's disturbing since she was only 4 years old. Anyway, the racism is apparently obvious since all the African parts were played by young Black children. Shirley's character and the Tarzan boy are the only white characters who try to civilize the African cannibals. Anyway, it's disturbing to see 4 year old Shirley in a coffee cup with salt being thrown at her since she would be dinner for the cannibals. It's up to the Tarzan boy to save her. Maybe it's a spoof on other films but I felt really turned off by the racism in this short alone. They could have parodied Tarzan and others films about Africa a little better.
