Watch it for laughs...and the BEAUTIFUL Rossana Podesta!
27 January 2003 | by (Maplewood, MN) – See all my reviews

I collect Snow White memorabilia and film, so when I heard about this Italian continuation of the famous Grimm story, I was anxious to see it. I finally ordered the video and sat down one dreary day to view it. By the end of the movie, I was so slap happy from the goofy antics on screen, the cold rainy weather outside seemed to fade away.

If you watch this movie, I highly recommend doing so with an open mind and a a silly mood. This film could hold it's own with the famous Ed Wood films of the 1950's and 1960's.

Cast as the "Fairest One Of All" is Italian beauty Rossana Podesta, who in the 1960's would later be the "Face that launched a 1000 ships" as the title character in Robert Wise's "Helen of Troy". It would have been nice to see her play Snow White in a version of the original story, with a more serious plot and better director. She certainly is a beauty and is truly the highlight of the film. But very sadly ill used.

I won't give away any of the story line or slapstick humor. But I will warn you about the toilet in the ground in the middle of the forest that "flushes" the seven dwarfs into the land of the Sea Maidens. It's one of the highlights of the film!

Just think of the old Hollywood serials of the 1930's and you will get the idea. Sort of a "Snow White meets Ming the Merciless". The sets for Prince of Darkenss's (Georges Marchal) lair look like left over sets from Flash Gordon.

Considered to be one of the worst films ever made, SEVEN DWARFS TO THE RESCUE has charm and makes for a mindless 90min of entertainment.
