Looks like only one on at the moment at a starting bid of $249 in the US.

How many of the 27 were sold & at what price?

Those were 'sales'
For time killing, I often just look through sales from high price down - see what's 'hot'.
As I quick recall, most were $200 and up.
I'm used to seeing 1 or 2 when I look.

Yeah saw 2 on YJ one has 245 asking the other is now past 100.
Crazy its still high and not everybody who wants one has one.

Again I'll always post, can remember when tower video couldn't give these away, asking 39 bucks at last that I can remember and they had stacks of them.
Maybe I should cash in on my copy, only watched it twice, do I really need the disc or money.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of these are being bought and then destroyed.
You may think nobody would spend this kind of money just to destroy something but it does actually happen.

Seems kind of pointless since they've been making bootlegs out of these discs for years already.

They couldn't make this movie disappear, not ever, so they'd just be wasting their money.

Then again, anybody who would do such a thing wouldn't be blessed with a lot of grey mass anyway.

Alternatively it is on IA complete with a boatload of extras. Save yourselves the absurd prices folks are asking.

I saw the movie once and I honestly thought it was pretty boring. The songs and the animated segments were nice but that's about it. If it weren't for it's reputation, SotS would just disappear amidst all the other generic live action Disney trite of the 1940s.

I remember it when I was a kid in early '80s America and we had Disney Channel. Apparantly what I would have seen was just excerpts, mostly the songs, the whole movie wasn't played back then.

The irony is that it only has a reputation because the Disney Company claims it has a reputation, and they themselves made a fuss over it when they falsely claimed they were never going to release it to home video... and then proceeded to release it on home video in obscure foreign markets only in the 1980's.

I have a bootleg VHS of it myself. The manner in which Walt Disney chose to present Joel Chandler Harris's 'Uncle Remus' stories was incredibly strange in retrospect. Would've made far more sense to just make the cartoons, but I guess maybe Walt or one of his directors had that presentation concept bouncing around for some time to make it as a live-action Civil War era movie. There was nothing in the movie even remotely as racist as the Disney Company claimed. Think about this, Disney owns the rights to the "Roots" mini-series, and they've published that to DVD and it even got a 40th Anniversary BD in 2017. But, oh scary, a G rated family musical movie about a southern family during the Civil War, apparently that's a detriment to society according to Disney. I don't pretend to understand this since there isn't any logic to it, but then there isn't any logic to most of what the Disney Company has done in the past two decades either.
