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.--Tom Keogh
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs I recieved the movie in very good condition and on a timely basis. Thank youTHE FIRST AND THE BEST When u see this film u may not be surprised at the action, the animals interplaying with Snow-White and so-forth... But THIS is the first one out and every cartoon owes Disney`s SNOW-WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS immensely.
The casting of the voices are brilliant(indeed Deanna Durbin was thought too mature in her voice) and Andrea Caselotti was subsequently cast in THE WIZARD OF OZ(1939) with a 1-liner - "Wherefore art thou... Romeo..." while the Tin-Man is singing out his despair and longings.
She is breathtaking as Snow-White. Though Snow-White is old-fashion and have gonebye thoughs of manners and traditions compared to her sisters Ariel, Belle, Esmeralda and Pocahontas; she still gives us a link to our childhood and our childhood dreams...Great movie! Not my favorite, but definitely a classic. The story line is cute and the quality is much better. Of course the movie is about a million years old (well maybe not that old), so some things may seem a little out of date. However, I've watched it a few times and have never gotten bored of it. I don't have any children, but I did watch it with my goddaughter (who is 3), and she loved it! She did get a bit scared on the part the witch is running and it's raining, but apparently not enough, since she then wanted to see the movie again. I think overall the movie is great, both the story and the DVD version. It is a real shame that is not available to purchase anymore.
