A prince, seeking the greatest treasure, stumbles upon seven little men guarding a coffin. They tell him the story of Snow White, a beautiful princess who was forced to run away from home after her jealous stepmother tried to have her killed. When she realizes that the girl is still alive and living with the dwarfs, she sets out to destroy her only rival once and for all. Written by

To save money, the Cannon Movie Tales were shot two or three at a time. "Snow White" was shot simultaneously with Beauty and the Beast (1987). This wasn't the best of situations in that often the two crews would be competing for limited equipment, costumes, and sets. See more »
When Snow White begins walking through the forest after being spared by the huntsman, she is seen wearing a ribbon in her hair. In one shot, it is seen falling out, and in the next it re-appears. See more »
I've seen that comb somewhere before!
[as she shoves the comb into Snow White's hair, which sends her into a deep sleep]
And you'll *never* see it again!

This story most closely depicts the origional Grimm Farie Tale as we know it. It has the apple, the corsett, and the comb! It has the seven little men, it has snow white, it has the hunter, it has the father... it's only missing one SINGLE tiny thing... the fact that Snow White's MOTHER, and not her STEP mother, is the one that wanted her dead. Then again, that's EVERY version that I've ever seen... unless the Disney version was the right way there. Don't remember. Anyhow, my favorite part of the movie is "Billy Barty". He is in SO MANY of my movies, I can pick out his voice like THAT. *Snaps*. Sure, he's only one of 7 adorable men, but still... and a couple of the songs are so precious. Not the absolutely best of the Cannon Films, but one of my long time favs.
