Judy Garland in Blackface in the 1938 film Everybody Sing.

Judy Garland performs a song in blackface. In the context of the movie she is not just performing in blackface but actually pretending to be black.  Here is a snippet of dialog:

Ricky: “What’s your name?”
Judy: “Opal Pearl Washington and I’m one of twins. Emerald Ruby passed on but my mammy didn’t mind so much cause we have twelve others, all twins.”

A year later, she would capture the imaginations of children for years to come in the classic film The Wizard of Oz.

(viaMCMXXXVIII)

White. Fucking. People. Everybody.

Nothing like turning to TCM for some classic movie funtimes and being surprised and hurt by Judy and Mickey Rooney singing and dancing in blackface.
