Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: You Don't Get A More Iconic Disney Movie than this one, Folks
|The original poster of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."|
Snow White talks and sings to them as they devotedly follow her around during her daily chores. From all appearances, Snow White leads a blissful, carefree existence.

Snow White runs and hides out in the forest, alone and fearful. There, after a horrible night, she finds a cabin and is taken in by seven dwarfs (Eddie Collins is Sneezy, Otis Harlan is Happy, Scotty Mattraw as Bashful, and Pinto Colvig is Sleepy/Grumpy). They, like the forest animals, love her and offer Snow a place of refuge. They even wash up for her! That's devotion.

The Evil Queen manages to feed Snow a poisoned apple, the "sleeping death." This puts Snow into a deep, endless sleep (don't worry, the Evil Queen gets hers). The Dwarfs are worried sick. Oh my, what is going to happen to Snow? Things sure look, Grimm.

Count among the unsung heroes of Hollywood the men who came up with the original music, Frank Churchill and Larry Morey for the showstopper songs, Leigh Harline and Paul J. Smith for the incidental music. Churchill, in particular, is a legend, as he died tragically by his own hand only a few years after this film. His music (for this, "Bambi" and "Dumbo," among many other works) continues to be used on soundtracks to this day, and probably as long as films are made.
