A Pictorial History of the Movies: 1937 – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Oh man, it’s Snow White.

This one is going to be a lot of fun. There’s such a great story behind this one.

But also… it’s Snow White. There is no possibility this wasn’t going to be the defining film of 1937. You can’t even make a case for anything else that better defines 1937 than this film without having to admit you’re deliberately trying not to pick this. It’s not possible.

I’m gonna spend this article talking about the story behind the film. Because we all know what it’s about and we’ve all seen it and we all know it’s a masterpiece of animation, that holds up even today. We don’t need to talk about that. I want everyone to know how the film was made.

There are few perfect choices out there for a list like this, and this is one of them. (more…)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Some day my prince will come / Some day we’ll meet again / And away to his castle we’ll go / To be happy forever I know / Some day when spring is here / We’ll find a love anew / And the birds will sing / And wedding bells will ring / Someday when my dreams come true.” ♫
