December the 21st, 1937 and the beginning of feature length animation begins. Of coarse this milestone of achievement was created by no other than Walt Disney. The film was a marvel to the movie going audiences and is considered a masterpiece by every standard today. I love this film, and with all the remastering and digital enhancements, I wonder what the movie really looked like on the big screen in 1937.
There are several background paintings and cells from Snow White hanging on the walls of the Animation building at the Walt Disney studios in Burbank, CA, and none of them are as vivid as the current crop of DVD and Blue Ray copies available today. I have an old VHS and Laser disc copies, and I actually prefer the older versions over the new. Regardless of how you see this film nothing changes the mastery of Disney, his staff of animators, and the invention of the multiplane camera system. There still is one of these incredible machines also on display at the Disney Studios in the Frank G. Wells building.
This is one incredible film; so hard to believe this wonder is 75 years old.
