Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

Basic Summary – The Grimm fairy tale gets a Technicolor treatment in Disney’s first animated feature. Jealous of Snow White’s beauty, the wicked queen orders the murder of her innocent stepdaughter, but later discovers that Snow White is still alive and hiding in a cottage with seven friendly little miners. Disguising herself as a hag, the queen brings a poisoned apple to Snow White, who falls into a death-like sleep that can be broken only by a kiss from the prince.

Going all the way back to the first animated Walt Disney Classic film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. When I first saw this film, I was honestly terrified of it. I think re-watching it I’m still pretty terrified. The forest scene where Snow White is fleeing the kingdom still is ranked on my list of childhood scenes that terrify me.

The story is pretty simple and easy to follow. The actors and actresses are pretty good. Snow White’s voice in the songs is actually painful to listen to. It’s pretty, but boy is it annoying. The romance is kinda hard to believe now because there is little to no interaction with her and the Prince. The villain is marvelous. I freaking love her. The dwarfs are adorable. Each with their own little quirks.

This is actually a tough film for children to make it through as it is rated G, I would honestly wait until they were like 8 for them to watch it or something.
