Snow White was one of the first Disney movies I ever saw. I think I was 5 when I watched it. Thinking about it, it has been years since I seen the movie. From what I heard, this was among the first movies created by Walt Disney. In those days, it was great gamble to make kids movie. It makes sense that it was so good. For Disney in his early days, failure was not an option. I can understand this. First impressions is what makes or breaks a company.
That point aside, Snow White is a peachy movie. Like we all know, Snow White's step mother wanted to kill her because Snow White was "the fairest of them all". The mirror mirror on the wall scene was pretty popular. The witch of a step mother represents Vanity. She has a magic mirror designed to tell her who is prettier than herself. Yeah, even today certain vain ladies are obsessed with beauty.
If I remember correctly, the Prince only showed up twice. Once when Snow White was cleaning and singing. The second time he appeared to give her a kiss. Its pretty sick the witches plan to have the dwarfs bury Snow White alive. Then again, one would expect a grim tale from the brothers Grimm. Aside from such creepiness, this movie has a lot of cute songs.
The song that is best know was the Hay Ho, song of the 7 dwarf. Its creepy that they represent the 7 deadly sins. Its pretty cool how Disney takes into consideration the parents. In those days, parents used to take their kids to watch the movies. That practice is still pretty common, even today. Taking this into consideration, the Disney kids movies has some weird things to humor the educated adults. In any case, Walt Disney's Snow White movie deserves 5 stars rating.
