Trivia

In 2008, composer Arik Rudich sued MGM for $1.9 million, claiming that they ignored his copyright and failed to negotiate any royalties for the use of his score on the 2005 DVD. The case was dismissed in 2009 when Rudich and MGM failed to conduct a court-ordered settlement conference. See more »

Sarah Patterson is the PERFECT "Snow White"!!!!
23 March 2000 | by (Maplewood, MN) – See all my reviews

Not since Disney's heroine glided across the screen, has Snow White been so beautifully portrayed. Sarah Patterson (A Company of Wolves) is not only beautiful, but gives Snow White the spunky yet child-like quality needed to bring the young princess to life. Miss Patterson also has a pleasant singing voice. I highly recommend seeing this enchanting version of the classic story!!!
