The 1986 movie "Rad" revolves around a BMX bike racer named Cru Jones who lives in a small town and has an enormous opportunity to participate in a race that could earn him a lucrative sponsorship and celebrity status. However, the qualifying race for the competition is on the same day as his SATs, which he needs to complete in order to go to college.
The Walt Disney Company released "Song of the South" in 1946, following the end to World War II. The movie is based on the fictional character Uncle Remus who was made famous in 1880s African-American folktales compiled by Joel Chandler Harris. Live actors set up the story, while animated characters such as Brer Rabbit and his friends carry out the plot. The film's most famous scene includes Uncle Remus and the animated animals singing the now historic and classic song, "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah," which won an Academy Award for Best Song in 1947. The movie also inspired Splash Mountain, an attraction at Disneyland and Disney World.Learn more about Art & Literature
