The Greatest Fairy Tale Ever Told Comes To Life!
6 June 2005 | by phillindholmSee all my reviews

This German made, live action version of the classic story was made in 1955, and released in the U.S in 1965. The releasing company, Childhood Productions, added a new soundtrack to the film, not only dubbing it into English, but commissioning a brand new score, written by Anne and Milton Delugg. The results are wonderful. Care was taken in matching the dubbed voices to the actors (even if the synchronization is a little off). The songs, and especially the background music, are beautiful. Add the lovely Bavarian scenery, and you have a delightful film. Incidentally, the original narrator, Paul Tripp, was replaced on the version issued by Interglobal Home Video. They filmed a new introduction with actor Chuck McCann, who also took over the storytelling chores. Presumably, this was done for copyright reasons. The Paul Tripp narration is far superior. Childhood Productions imported several German made fairy tale films to the U.S. in the sixties. They did well by all of them, but this is, in my opinion, the best. Having now seen (at last) the original German Language edit, I can say again, they did a remarkable job. The original musical score is bad- no memorable orchestrations, no lovely background themes, no nothing. The cast,(undubbed) have very poor speaking voices. Childhood Productions took a routine film version of a classic story, and made it a memorable one.My favorite ''Snow White'' movie!.
