SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (1937)
SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (1937) A Walt Disney Production. *****
I first saw this in the early 50's and have probably seen it half a dozen times since. It has never lost any of the magic of that first viewing. It is, unquestionably, a ground-breaking production of great historical importance. Thankfully the Disney Organisation (unlike some studios) has always been aware of the treasures within their stewardship and today we can view SNOW WHITE and other studio classic in pristine copies. The DVD has a fascinating commentary track which goes into great detail about the making of the film - much of it narrated by Walt Disney himself. Simply a masterpiece.
