Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) Poster

Alternate Versions

Non-English versions show the names on the Seven Dwarfs' beds and the Evil Queen's spell books written in the language of the country of release (i.e., German in Germany, Italian in Italy, French in France, etc.).
Many countries deemed the film too terrifying, so foreign prints were edited. On initial release, England banned the film from anyone under 12 years of age, while in Sweden, an unedited version of the film was not released until 1992, at which point it was okayed for children under seven years with a parent. In that country, it had been edited by eight minutes in the 1960s and four minutes in the 1980s, trimming Snow White's flight through the forest, the Queen transforming into the Witch, and the Seven Dwarfs chasing the Witch up the mountain.
The Special edition DVD includes five deleted scenes:
  • An argument between Grumpy and Doc over whether Snow White goes or stays.

  • A song ("Music in Your Soup") in which the Dwarfs sing about the soup Snow White just made, she shows them how to eat properly, and Dopey swallows his spoon, which the other Dwarfs manage to kick out of him, along with the bar of soap he had also inadvertently ingested from the scene where the Dwarfs wash their hands.

  • The Dwarfs discuss what to make as a present for Snow White (Happy proposes a crown with precious jewels, Bashful suggests a golden harp with angels on it, Doc proposes a coach with six white horses and Grumpy suggests a mop), until they decided on a bed.

  • The Dwarfs make the bed for Snow White.

  • The witch brewing the cauldron for the poison apple.

Prior to 1954, Disney's films were distributed by RKO Radio Pictures. The original opening title sequence featured the RKO logo in it. In 1955, Disney created and started using Buena Vista Pictures Distribution. Beginning with the 1958 reissue, the opening title cards were replaced, with the RKO logo removed, and the Buena Vista logo inserted. The original opening and ending titles with the RKO references were included as bonus material on the 2001 Platnium Edition DVD and 1994 special edition laserdisc, but were not restored to the actual film until the 2009 DVD and Blu-ray releases.
