Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the world's first full-length animated feature that heralded what is generally known as the Disney animated canon. It marks many first in the history of animated film making, being the first dubbed in English, the first to be filmed in Technicolor, and the first to be made solely in the United States.
Snow White is a fair maiden takes refuge in the forest in the house of seven dwarfs to hide from her cruel and wicked Queen stepmother who wishes nothing but her demise. The Queen’s apparent jealousy and insecurity towards Snow White were heightened further because she knows she can never be "the fairest in the land" as long as Snow White's beauty surpasses her own. The dwarfs grow to love and appreciate their unexpected visitor, who pays their kindness in return by cleaning their house and cooking their meals. But one day while the dwarfs are working at their diamond mine, the Queen secretly arrives at the cottage disguised as an old peddler woman and knowing how innocent and trusting Snow White is, persuades her to take a bite into a poisoned apple. The dwarfs, warned by the forest animals, rush home to chase the witch away, but they are too late to save Snow White – she has succumbed to the curse befallen upon her. The dwarves, thinking that their beloved Snow White is already dead, placed her in a glass coffin in the woods to mourn for her. The Prince, who has fallen in love with Snow White, happens by and awakens her from the wicked Queen's deathlike spell with "love's first kiss."
The movie was adapted by Dorothy Ann Blank, Richard Creedon, Merrill De Maris, Otto Englander, Earl Hurd, Dick Rickard, Ted Sears and Webb Smith and was supervised by David Hand, and directed by William Cottrell, Wilfred Jackson, Larry Morey, Perce Pearce, and Ben Sharpsteen. Snow White is particularly memorable for songs like "Heigh-Ho" and "Some Day My Prince Will Come".
