Movie One Sheets: Dixie (1943)

Dixie is a 1943 American biographical film of songwriter Daniel Decatur Emmett directed by A. Edward Sutherland and starring Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour. Contrary to rumor, it has not been withdrawn from circulation due to racial issues (Crosby at one point appears in blackface during a song number) but is simply one of hundreds of vintage Paramount Pictures from the 1930s and 1940s now owned by Universal and not actively marketed. The movie produced one of Crosby’s most popular songs, “Sunday, Monday, or Always”.
