Did You Know?

Trivia:
The trees that grab Snow White's dress were based on unique Garry Oak trees, found on Southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Walt Disney had toured through this area and noted their eerie, twisting shapes.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Snow White decides to clean the dwarfs' house, she takes off her cape and hangs it on the wall. When the dwarfs return from the diamond mine later and are shocked to find the house clean, the cape is gone and it never returns for the rest of the movie.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Queen:Slave in the magic mirror, come from the farthest space, through wind and darkness I summon thee. Speak! Let me see thy face.
Magic Mirror:What wouldst thou know, my Queen?
Queen:Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?
Magic Mirror:Famed is thy beauty, Majesty. But hold, a lovely maid I see. Rags cannot hide her gentle grace. Alas, she is more fair than thee.
Queen:Alas for her! Reveal her name.
Magic Mirror:Lips red as the rose. Hair black as ebony. Skin white as snow.
Queen:Snow White!

The Queen Rules, 12 December 2002
Author: laffinsal from California

Quite simply, this one reigns supreme. Although much of the praise this film receives, may be due to the fact that it was it's creator's first attempt at an animated feature, I think it's obvious merits and artistic triumphs are enough to maintain it's place at the top.

First, there is the artwork, which is stunning. The color isn't at it's most vibrant, such as with, say, "Cinderella" (1950), but it is suitable and lovely all the same. A virtual watercolor painting come to life. The details in the animation never fail to amaze. Just look at the raindrops in the chase sequence towards the end. Look how they hit the rocks, and slip away. Such attention to detail was rarely matched in an animated feature, except maybe, in "Pinocchio" (1940).

The characters are of various degrees of interest, with Snow White, probably the least of these. The dwarfs are all charming, and it is they who carry the film during their screentime with the princess. However, one should not deny, that the true star of this film, is the evil queen. Both in her presence of glamour, and in her transformation as an old crone, she is fascinating to watch. I don't believe another Disney villian has ever been both frightening and enchanting, like she has.

Lastly, the music in this film is truly memorable. The "Heigh Ho" sequence is visually impressive, and the dwarfs song as they bathe is a great comedy bit. Not to mention Snow White's anthem "Someday My Prince Will Come"; another gem in the Disney library.

All in all, a tremendous production. Beautiful, thrilling, and memorable.
