The manager at my local Hallmark store told me today that Hallmark Corporate is recalling this ornament. Stores are being told to send back all quantities of Scarlett O'Hara. There are also going to be five ornaments that were scheduled for July Premiere, and are being pushed back to October.

The Scarlett O'Hara ornament was not on my list, but I am disappointed for the reason for the recall of this ornament.

Is there a list of the five ornaments delayed till October?

She could not remember when we talked. There is going to be another ornament pulled, but she was not sure which one.

Having the Ghostbusters postponed makes sense. My store manager said the other ornament was connected to a movie. smile

There was a Mickey one recalled. And I wrote to Hallmark about the Scarlett one, but they haven't answered. I can't believe that Hallmark has been pressured to keep this one out by radicals. Mammy was the first black woman to win an Oscar. Hallmark has become crazy!

I think Scarlett O'Hara was recalled because "Gone with the Wind" won't be shown again. Again, this movie showed slaves as being in a much better situation than they actually were.

Often typecast as a maid, Butterfly McQueen said: "I didn't mind playing a maid the first time, because I thought that was how you got into the business. But after I did the same thing over and over, I resented it. I didn't mind being funny, but I didn't like being stupid." By 1947, she had grown tired of the ethnic stereotypes she was required to play and ended her film career.

American History should be a requirement in today's colleges in order to graduate.

Gone with the Wind was a true depiction of the time it represents.

I don't know where you got that idea. True, it was taken down from which ever streaming service it was on, but it is back up now with a disclaimer about it and what it does and doesn't get right about history.

I believe Butterfly McQueen played Prissy and Hattie McDaniel played Mammy. I, too am disappointed that the ornament was cancelled.

Hattie McDaniel played Mammy and she won an Oscar, however she was not allowed to attend the premiere because it was an all white theater. The Oscar ceremony was held at an all white hotel and they did her a favor and allowed her in the hotel but segregated her from everyone.

One of our local stores has the festive garland. I don't know if it was just display or for sale.

My friend said she bought two Scarletts three weeks ago - she always gets them for her girls. I don't know where she got them, but I only wanted Mickey anyway.
