Storyline

The evil, long-nosed queen asks the magic mirror in her hand who's the fairest in the land, and the mirror replies that she is. But into the queen's cave walks Betty Boop, singing that she wants to see her stepmama. Now Betty is the fairest in the land and the queen orders her beheaded. Koko and Bimbo can't bring themselves to do it. Later, Betty ends up encased in a block of ice. The Seven Dwarfs, thinking she's dead, bring her into the Mystery Cave, her final resting place. Bimbo and Koko join them. And so does the queen, who has changed herself into a witch. The clown, with Cab Calloway's voice, sings "St. James Infirmary Blues" in the weird cave full of flying skeletons and floating ghosts. Only a reversal of fortune can save Betty and the two heroes now. Written by J. Spurlin

Snow White (1933)

*** (out of 4)

Very good telling of the famous story has the Wicked Witch getting upset when her mirror says that Betty Boop is better so it's off with her head. Boop ends up with the seven dwarfs but the Wicked Witch comes looking for her. This film certainly isn't in the same league as the Disney feature that would follow four years later but this is still fairly interesting and features a terrific closing song. The story is pretty much what you'd expect even though we get a bit of Sleeping Beauty thrown in for good measure. The nearly seven-minute running time goes by quite fast and we get some good visuals including the various ghosts and other dancing going on. I think the highlight is towards the end when Koko the Clown sings a song but it's Cab Calloway doing the actual singing and it's very good. I doubt anyone is going to watch this and throw away their Disney versions but this one here is certainly worth checking out.
