SYNOPSIS

With live musical accompaniment

Adapted from the highly successful 1912 Broadway production, and incorporating its lavish sets and costumes, Snow White stars Marguerite Clark. One of 'the big four' silent movie stars of the time alongside Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, Clark is perfect as the irrepressibly cheerful princess who faces adversity with buoyant enthusiasm. For a young Walt Disney, who first saw the film at a special event screening sponsored by the Kansas City Star for whom he was working, it was a magical experience from which he would draw on over two decades later.
