For years, the film was out-of-print on VHS in the U.S. and highly sought-after by fans, with used copies selling for nearly $100 on eBay. The demand finally prompted MGM to release it on DVD in 2005. See more »

If you have lovely hair, you may want a comb in there. Painted bright, mother-of-pearl, just the thing for a lovely girl.

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!!!
