110. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Yay!  A movie from my childhood.  Actually, I think this movie ended up in our rejected pile most of the time in favor of Lion King, Mulan, or Aladdin.  We were never really too fond of the songs and I think the forest scared us.

So you know the creepy plot.  I think a bunch of new Snow White movies are coming out, including one featuring Julia Roberts (sigh).  This film is truly amazing when you think about the sheer magnificence of such an achievement.  We owe all our Disney favorites to this film even if this movie does not rank among them.

Okay songs, ridiculous plot, and sappy sentimentality.  What more do you want?

RATING: ***--

Interesting Facts:

The special Oscar that the film received was actually eight statuettes (Snow White and seven dwarfs).

J.R.R. Tolkein used the word "dwarves" so the name of this movie is often erroneously spoken.

Hitler's favorite film. 


  1. I thought I might warn you to set your DVR for The Reckless Moment (1949) for 1/23 on TCM--it's hard to find and one of the few I haven't seen.

  2. Ooo, thanks so much. I didn't want to have another Me and My Gal incident. Congrats on seeing as many as you have!

  3. Well, when you get to The Man in Grey (1943) if you find it, tell me, because it's the first one in the book that I haven't seen.

  4. This was Hitler's favorite movie? You are kidding? That is hilarious.
