Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Walt Disney’s Masterpiece) [VHS]
Adriana Caselotti (Actor), Harry Stockwell (Actor), Ben Sharpsteen (Director), David Hand (Director) Rated: G (General Audience) Format: VHS Tape

One of the brightest nuggets from Disney’s golden age, this 1937 film is almost dizzying in its meticulous construction of an enchanted world, with scores of major and minor characters (including fauna and fowl), each with a distinct identity. When you watch Snow White’s intricate, graceful movements of fingers, arms, and head all in one shot, it is not the technical brilliance of Disney’s artists that leaps out at you, but the very spirit of her engaging, girl-woman character. When the wicked queen’s poisoned apple turns from killer green to rose red, the effect of knowing something so beautiful can be so terrible is absolutely elemental, so pure it forces one to surrender to the horror of it. Based on the Grimm fairy tale, Snow White is probably the best family film ever to deal, in mythic terms, with the psychological foundation for growing up. It’s a crowning achievement and should not be missed.

Disney’s first full-length animated masterpiece features all the elements of a classic fairy tale–a beautiful heroine, an evil queen, Prince Charming…and a septet of whistling dwarfs. In hiding from her jealous and wicked stepmother, the fair Snow White takes refuge with a band of kind-hearted, hard-working dwarves: Bashful, Sneezy, Sleepy, Happy, Grumpy, Dopey and Doc. Eventually the vain queen finds Snow White and tricks her into eating a poisoned apple. Luckily, a wandering prince comes to her rescue, but can he break the evil queen’s spell?Based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS was initially thought a crazy idea for a feature film by those at Walt Disney. However, its lush production and charming characters proved otherwise. Standing the test of time since its release in 1937, the film has entranced audiences for decades, teaching them to never be vain and always whistle while they work.

Roy Disney Intro

This is the first animated feature film ever made, and with it, Walt Disney cemented his place as a revolutionary maker of films. At the 11th Academy Awards, Walt Disney was awarded an honorary Oscar, and the film was nominated for Best Musical Score.

This is one of the most groundbreaking movies of all time! It’s great not just because it was the first full-length animated feature, but because of how human the characters actually are. When Walt Disney was making this at the time, all of Hollywood was labeling it as “Disney’s Folly”. Well, here we are today, with all those companies who once thought it would fail starting to make their own animated movies. “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” will always remain a masterpiece because of it’s whimsical animation, convincing characters, and being the first movie of its kind. This is definitely one movie that is worthwile to own.
