Nomenclature

“Nigger” was already thought disgraceful by Hollywood. Gone With the Wind (1939) does not use it. I have an impression that the great Hattie McDaniel refused to be in a movie that used it. Or did the producer surrender it as a bargaining chip with the censors to get in Rhett’s parting “damn”? Cinephiles please advise.
