Even the woman who played Mammy was excellent even though the role was a far from what true Mammies must have been like.
Please don't tell me that. I'd very much like to believe that Hattie McDaniel portrayed a believable Mammy, if not many of the colored caretakers of white children.

I found it realistic if only to hope that some of the southern insistence on the trust and responsibility given to slaves has a grain of truth. Now that I think of it, that movie is the sole source of that idea. But it does make sense.
