Trivia

In an interview shortly before her death, Patricia Medina said the main reason she took the role of the Wicked Queen is because she would finally be playing a villain. Up to the point, she was known for her "good girl" roles. See more »

Wonderfully entertaining!
27 July 1999 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

As I lover of the Stooges, ice skating, romance and fairy tales, I was so thrilled with this movie that I plan to purchase it. While the amazing costumes and scenery and unique twists on the Snow White story would have been enough to entertain me, seeing the Stooges acting in tender roles make them all the more lovable.

The ice skating scene as Snow White lies crying in the snow is absolutely the most visually stunning effect I've ever seen in a movie.

The only drawback to this film is that the Moe/Larry/Curly Joe combo never has the same magic for Stooge fans as the Moe/Larry/Curly or Moe/Larry/Shemp lineup.

Everyone in my family, even the 9 month old baby, enjoyed this movie tremendously.
