Banned For the Wrong Reason
13 August 2012 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Taking a look at this movie in which the characters are voiced like the members of Jack Benny's radio troupe -- with Crusoe sounding like Benny and Friday -- real name "Westchester" -- sounding like Eddie Anderson. It's easy to see why this is a banned movie. The Black natives are portrayed as the sort of self-mutilating Ubangi that were a well-known stereotype when this was made, and Friday as a cowardly vegetarian. It would never occur to anyone that it should not be shown because it is a bad movie, which it is.

This black and white Paul Terry shows a lot more production value than in years gone by, but the success of Disney, Fleischer and Schlesinger doubtless got more money for Terry from his contract with 20th Century-Fox. It's too bad that the highlight of the movie is the sound effects for Crusoe's car which makes the same sort of outrageous noises as Benny's Maxwell in the radio show -- and which was voiced by Mel Blanc!
