Storyline

The beautiful and kindhearted princess Snow White charms every creature in the kingdom except one - her jealous stepmother, the Queen. When the Magic Mirror proclaims Snow White the fairest one of all, she must flee into the forest, where she befriends the lovable seven dwarfs - Doc, Sneezy, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, and Dopey. But when the Queen tricks Snow White with an enchanted apple, only the magic of true love's kiss can save her. Written by Lesley (from the back of the Snow White DVD)

Quotes

[first lines]
Queen: Slave in the magic mirror, come from the farthest space, through wind and darkness I summon thee. Speak! Let me see thy face.
Magic Mirror: What wouldst thou know, my Queen?
Queen: Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?
Magic Mirror: Famed is thy beauty, Majesty. But hold, a lovely maid I see. Rags cannot hide her gentle grace. Alas, she is more fair than thee.
Queen: Alas for her! Reveal her name.
Magic Mirror: Lips red as the rose. Hair black as ebony. Skin white as snow.
Queen: Snow White!

Alternate Versions

The Special edition DVD includes five deleted scenes:
  • An argument between Grumpy and Doc over whether Snow White goes or stays.
  • A song ("Music in Your Soup") in which the Dwarfs sing about the soup Snow White just made, she shows them how to eat properly, and Dopey swallows his spoon, which the other Dwarfs manage to kick out of him, along with the bar of soap he had also inadvertently ingested from the scene where the Dwarfs wash their hands.
  • The Dwarfs discuss what to make as a present for Snow White (Happy proposes a crown with precious jewels, Bashful suggests a golden harp with angels on it, Doc proposes a coach with six white horses and Grumpy suggests a mop), until they decided on a bed.
  • The Dwarfs make the bed for Snow White.
  • The witch brewing the cauldron for the poison apple.

Almost 70 Years Later, This Still Holds Up Well
12 August 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This was Walt Disney's first animated full-length movie. I've read where it took somewhere between two to five years to make, and the artwork still stands up to today's standards. It still looks good, especially with today's DVD technology and great-looking television sets. This film, along with Bambi, exhibit some fantastic watercolor-type artwork with the latter being ever more spectacular than this one.

The story is "cute" because of the seven dwarfs. The evil character - the queen - doesn't have that big a role so most of the time it's just a sweet, enjoyable film with nice characters. It's one of the those movies that makes you feel good as you are watching it.

To be honest, some of the scenes lag a bit and Snow White's operatic voice is a bit much for me, but those are the only complaints I could find in this classic film, one of the best ever from Disney.
