SYNOPSIS

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was Walt Disney's first major love letter to the German fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. Described at the time by skeptical Hollywood insiders as 'Disney's Folly', Walt Disney's ambitious animation became the first feature-length animated film in the United States and sparked a deep affection for the genre through generations of film goers. A mammoth undertaking, the animated film comprised of a staggering two million illustrations, created with the help of 32 animators, 102 assistants, 167 "in-betweeners", 20 layout artists, 25 artists doing water colour backgrounds, 65 effects animators, and 158 inkers and painters. In 1939 Walt Disney was awarded an honorary Oscar for his significant contribution to screen innovation and in 2008 the film was named the 'Greatest Animated Film of All Time' by the American Film institute.
