The plot summary needs work. Snow White does not start "a new life" with the Dwarfs as she is with them (alive) for only a day at most. Second, the entire sequence where the Dwarfs entertain her with a song and dance and then she returns the favor by singing to them is left out. From this scene and others, it is obvious Snow White and the dwarfs are now friends and that instead of her merely cooking and cleaning for them, she is a friend and companion. Also, the Dwarfs don't let her stay merely because she can cook, expect for Grumpy, they all really wanted her to stay from the start, the fact she can cook was merely the final tipping point. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:50, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Tomato Tomoto[change] you know what similarties "Gone With the Wind," "Casablanca," "The Sound of Music," and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves," have in common aside of them all being classic movies? They don't have a Rotton Tomato or Metacritic score recorded in them! I mean am I missing something here? I mean is it because there old movies because both "Citizen Kane," and "The Wizard of Oz," have there scores recorded and there about as old as a movie can get...So why doesn't "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves," have a score in them? I think that people who read this article would be very interested about how contemporary critics rated this movie. I don't know I'm just saying it's an idea.-James Pandora Adams —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:17, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

In the "Crew" paragraph of the "Cast and Crew" section, see the line headed "Animators:" (The last line in the paragraph).

The hyperlink "Cy Young" links to the article about the baseball player. It should link to "Cy Young(animator)".

Is it "Mirror, mirror" or "Magic mirror"?[change]

This article quotes the famous query as "Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?" However, I've heard it quoted (more commonly, in fact) as "Mirror, mirror on the wall..."

Which is correct? (Somewhat surprisingly, being such a famous quote [or misquote] from a famous film, this topic isn't mentioned in the article. I haven't seen the movie myself, so I don't know the answer.)

(Also, while I'm at it....I've heard the last three words quoted, in about equal amounts, as "one of all" and "of them all". Again, which is correct?) Captain Quirk (talk) 03:44, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

"Mirror, Mirror" is a Star Trek episode. "Magic mirror" is the correct quotation from this film. As for the latter question, q:Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937 film) says it's "one of all", but I don't know how to prove it. =) Powers T 22:13, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

First feature-length animated film?[change]

The question of what the first feature-length animated film was has never been resolved. The Fleischers apparently did a long silent film on Einstein's theory of relativity, but this wouldn't count, as it (presumably) wasn't a "narrative" film. Does anyone know? WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 13:11, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

  • There were many animated features before Snow White. (See the wiki article on History of Animation.) However, SW is the first animated feature with sound, in color, and with an extensive audience. --Janke | Talk 13:57, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

For a chronological list, see List of animated feature films before 1940. According to the articles about the films and their completion and/or release, the order is:

Not exactly "many" in number. Most of these films were not cel-animated, unlike Snow White. Dimadick (talk) 21:50, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

The magic mirror and its role[change]

One must wonder about the magic mirror its powers its role. Where did queen Grimhilde get it from, and if someone gave it to her - who and with what intent? It has with reason been said that it just is not true that the sweet teen Snow white should be more fair than the queen. Also: can one at all speak of Anyone Objectively the most fair of all? Does the mirror pursue some agenda of its own - or of someone else? Of Greatest interest in the matter is that Grimhilde seems to have all but abdicated her role as regent.

Box office in infobox[change]

I have reverted this edit by Trekphiler where he replaced the lifetime box-office with the original theatrical gross. I think it is important not to make presumptions about what editors expect to find. If you look at most box-office trackers such as Box Office Mojo, The Numbers and in all cases the lifetime gross is presented as the primary figure (although all three tracker lack complete overseas data). In this spirit if you look at other film articles—such as Star Wars, James Bond and other Dsiney releases—you will see the lifetime total is the figure presented in the infobox, and I personally think it is the correct approach.

The original theatrical box-office should go in the XXXX in film articles where the articles relates to a particular release window. The 1937 in film article doesn't log box-office, but you can see a more recent example of this at Titanic (1997 film) which has the lifetime box-office in the infobox and the original gross at 1997 in film. Betty Logan (talk) 03:17, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Nice theory, except all too many of the "year in film" pages also use the lifetime figure... I happen to think putting the lifetime amount in the infobox is a stupid practise, but I won't argue it here, because the problem isn't limited to this page. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 04:29, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
The practise is standard, and not just limited to Wikipedia. Films like Snow White and Gone with the Wind have had long shelf lives and the bulk of their revenues came after the first release, so I don't see how it is useful to the reader to ignore the bulk of their income. Betty Logan (talk) 06:15, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

First feature length cel animation[change]

Does Lotte Reiniger's 65-minute 1926 animation "The Adventures of Prince Achmed" predate the claim that Snow White "is the first full-length cel animated feature film"? --Iantresman (talk) 15:04, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

  • No, Prince Achmed was made by stop-motion shooting of paper silhouettes. --Janke | Talk 16:41, 13 January 2018 (UTC)
  • Apparently not. Reiniger used an entirely different technique: "manipulated cutouts made from cardboard and thin sheets of lead under a camera." Dimadick (talk) 16:45, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 7 April 2018[change]

smuggled into the Soviet Union[change]

I read somewhere that the movie was smuggled into the Soviet Union right at the end of WWII. If you see a Soviet made version of "The Snow Maiden" the drawings (especially the witch) look very similar to those in Snow White. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:31, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Edit Request - Sergei Eisenstein - "Greatest Film Ever Made"[change]

The current article states, under Release: Reception, that "Eisenstein went so far as to call it the greatest film ever made.[38]" The New York Times article doesn't say this at all:

"In the Soviet Union, Sergei Eisenstein, who was directing Alexander Nevsky when he saw Snow White, wrote: Although as yet there are all too few examples of the true cinematography of sound-and-sight consonance (only a few scenes, for instance in Disney's wonderful 'Snow White' or individual scenes from 'Alexander Nevsky,' such as the 'Attack of the Knights'), advanced cinema directors are engrossed in the problem of spectacle synthesis, experimenting in this field and accumulating a certain amount of experience."

He praises the film but does not call it the "greatest film ever made". This line should be removed from the article or a different source cited if he did indeed say that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:22, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

One is an image still, the other is a music clip. Not the same thing.

The claim about Snow White having been designed by Charles Thorson and based on an Icelandic waitress is dubious. I recommend removing it[change]

The following claim in the article is dubious: "Cartoonist and character designer Charles Thorson joined Disney in 1935. Charles designed Snow White based on an Icelandic waitress he met in the 1920s named Kristin Solvadottir while eating at a diner in his hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba".

First of all, Charles Thorson is not credited in the opening titles of the film.

The only evidence for this claim are oral, coming from Charles Thorson's son (Dr. Steven Thorson) as well as the daughter of the Icelandic waitress in question, Kristín Sölvadóttir. It is well known from all the scholarly literature on the film that Grim Natwick and Ham Luske were the primary designers and animators of Snow White. They are also credited in the opening titles of the film as animators. See e.g. -Kaufman, J. B. (2012). Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Art and Creation of Walt Disney's Classic Animated Film. Weldon Owen -Barrier, Michael (1999). Hollywood Cartoons: American Animation in Its Golden Age. New York: Oxford University Press. -Maltin, Leonard. (1980).
