Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
(2 Disc Set)
Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is truly a
transgenerational movie that knows no boundaries and finally this 1937
classic has received a much needed release on DVD with exceptional
picture quality and those oh so memorable songs. On a side note, I remember seeing this movie when I was child and even
my father remembered seeing this classic when he was a kid which just
proves the scope and diversity of this movie.
soon as the disc went into our player, the emotions from my childhood
came flooding back and I was instantly drawn into this magic tale about
the kind hearted princess called Snow White and a wickedly dark Queen. Of
course almost everyone knows the tale of Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs, however the endless magic of this tale will ensure that
a new generation of fans will also fall in love with it.
The story begins with
the wicked Queen who asks her magic mirror who is the fairest one of
all. For years, the Queen was the fairest one of all, however
unfortunately one day, this all changes and the mirror proclaims Snow
White as the
fairest one of all. Outraged by this decision, the Queen orders her
Huntsmen to murder her beautiful step daughter, whether this is
triggered by jealous, insanity or both, only the Queen knows.
Thankfully the Huntsmen is unable to perform this task and even worse,
bring the heart of Snow White back to her as proof. He warns the
princess and from there she flees into the forests, only to meet the
parallels to Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Snow White enters their
home, cleans it up and falls asleep in their beds until the the 7 dwarfs
return to find an unexpected visitor and immediately, just as do the
forest creatures, they fall in love with Snow White... even Grumpy.
Sadly while Snow White is hiding with Bashful, Doc, Dopey,
Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy and Sneezy, the seven dwarfs, the Queen finds out
that the Huntsmen has brought her not the heart of a human but the heart
of a pig.
Taking matters into her own hand, the Queen creates a
dastardly spell that turns her into an old hag in order to give the
beautiful princess a magic Apple that will forever keep her asleep.
Unfortunately Snow White succumbs to the Queen and without spoiling the
story anymore, it's up to the seven dwarfs and a handsome prince to save
animation for a movie from 1937 is thoroughly impressive that boasts
exceptional picture quality and it almost looks like a painting come to
life. The only drawback to the movie is unfortunately the audio quality,
however thankfully once you get immersed into the movie, it becomes a
thing of the past.
72 years of age, you'll be pushing it to look this good! Of course, the
songs in the movie are truly memorable classics like "Heigh Ho, Heigh
Ho, we're off to work we go!" and is probably an element of the film
which made it so popular among all viewers.
Featuring a variety of genres in this classic tale from
comedy to romance and adventure, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
is a must have collection for almost everyone. Whether you have children
or wish to walk down memory lane, this movie can be watched time and
time again. Add in a bonus discs with some additional magical extras and
there's no complaining about this Disney classic.
