One of the brightest nuggets from Disney's golden age, this 1937 film is almost dizzying in its meticulous construction of an enchanted world, with scores of major and minor characters (including fauna and fowl), each with a distinct identity. When you watch Snow White's intricate, graceful movements of fingers, arms, and head all in one shot, it is not the technical brilliance of Disney's artists that leaps out at you, but the very spirit of her engaging, girl-woman character. When the wicked queen's poisoned apple turns from killer green to rose red, the effect of knowing something so beautiful can be so terrible is absolutely elemental, so pure it forces one to surrender to the horror of it. Based on the Grimm fairy tale, Snow White is probably the best family film ever to deal, in mythic terms, with the psychological foundation for growing up. It's a crowning achievement and should not be missed. --Tom Keogh
Mirror, Mirror, on the wall, now, who is the fairest of us all?
Over the seven jewelled hills, beyond the seventh fall, in the the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs, dwells Snow White, fairest of us all.
Snow White lies dead in the forest. The huntsman has brought me proof. Behold, her heart.
Snow white still lives, fairest in the land, 'tis is a heart of a pig you hold in your hand.
The heart of a pig! Then I've been tricked!
