Pop Life: Is Gone With The Wind Gone With The Wind?

gone_with_the_wind_poster.jpg

In response to great social change happening in our society, Warner Media decided to temporarily remove the 1939 motion picture classic Gone With The Wind from its HBO Max streaming platform until it could be properly contextualized.  The move has been hotly debated among historians and the entertainment industry, among others.

On this episode of Pop Life, host Joe Lee welcomes Bob Thompson, Trustee Professor of Television and Popular Culture at the SI Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, back to the show to discuss what we do with classic content, art and historic symbolism when it is no longer culturally acceptable.
