Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
- 1 hr 23 min
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, produced by Walt Disney Productions, ranks as the first of Disney's full length animated cel film features. Based on a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, the action focuses around a princess by the name of Snow White who lives with her wicked stepmother, a Queen who soon becomes jealous of her stepdaughter's beauty and popularity. The Queen devises a plot to have a huntsman trick Snow White into travelling deep into the local forest so that she can be killed. But the huntsman instead reveals the Queen's plot to Snow White, urges her to escape, and returns a jeweled box containing a pig's heart to the Queen as alleged proof that Snow White is dead. Snow White comes upon a cottage inhabited by an assortment of seven dwarfs, all local mine workers, who each has a name such as Sleepy or Happy, aptly describing the main characteristic of his personality. When the Queen discovers that Snow White is not really dead, she transforms herself into an old hag in order to personally deliver a poisoned apple to dispatch of her stepdaughter once and for all. The dwarfs are inconsolable when they return from work to find that Snow White has been poisoned. After they lovingly place her body within a clear glass coffin to rest in peace in a forest clearing, fate intervenes in a way that helps to dry everyone's tears and transform grief into happiness.
