Review: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Series: Disney Animated: #1

An almost 100 year old movie, based on a story likely at least a century older, combining aspects of stories who knows how old, animated for the modern (of the time) movie going audience. It’s the beginning of a truely delightful era–that of the Disney animated classics. While they’ve certainly got their problems (the rather traditional gender roles and Disney’s ongoing copyright battles to name a pair), they’re still something elegant and innocent about them and Snow White is no exception.

One particular interesting aspect to look for is just how good the animation looks–for 1937 no less. It’s been retouched a bit over the years and newer animation can do some absolutely amazing things, but as a piece of history? It’s fantastic.
