Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Movie Poster

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Movie Poster

MOVIE HISTORY


Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a movie that never gets old. It was Walt Disney's first full length animated feature film. It was released in 1937 and featured the voices of Roy Atwell, Adriana Caselotti, Lucille Laverne and Pinto Colvig. It was one of the first Disney movies that I remember seeing as a little girl though I did not see it when it was new. If I had to guess, I would guess that I saw it a number of decades later at the movie theater when I was just old enough to go to a movie, perhaps in the late 1960s.

Most of us know the story line of this now classic movie that was based on a tale by the Brothers Grimm. It follows the adventures and misadventures of young woman named Snow White who is mistreated by her stepmother. She escapes and winds up living with the seven wonderful dwarfs that we know and love, namely Sleepy, Dopey, Sneezy, Happy, Bashful, Grumpy and Doc. Of course, in true Disney form, we all know that Snow White is eventually rescued by a handsome prince.

SPECIAL HONORARY ACADEMY AWARD


Even initially, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was considered a critical and a commercial success for Walt Disney Productions and the movie at one point held the record for highest grossing movie with sound when it earned eight million dollars at the box office. Quite fittingly, I think, child actor Shirley Temple presented Walt Disney with an honorary Oscar for the movie in 1938. I should perhaps say with a series of Oscars since the design of this particular Oscar was truly unique consisting of one normal-sized Oscar and seven smaller ones mounted on an attractive platform.

REPRODUCTION MOVIE POSTER


If you simply want a representation of the movie, I do like the idea of a reproduction movie poster. The poster shown on this page is a reproduction available on Amazon and measures approximately 11 inches by 17 inches or 28 cms by 44 cms. Because it is new, it has naturally never been hung so it has no tape marks and no pin marks. You can find it affordably prized on Amazon by following this link.

VINTAGE MOVIE POSTERS


You can occasionally find an interesting vintage Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs movie poster on eBay by following this link. If it is a true vintage poster you are after, you will have to shop carefully to avoid reproductions. However, the hunt might well be worth it. I think that some of those old pieces are very attractive.

I believe that a Snow White poster would be a great addition to any movie- or Disney-themed room and, of course, it would really suit any little girl’s bedroom or even a baby girl’s nursery.

Would it be a new or vintage movie poster for you and where would you display it?

See you
at the movies!

  1. The early Disney movies are all classics. I did not realize that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was Disney's very first feature-length movie. It was also very interesting to read about the special Oscar the movie received. Movie posters make terrific wall decorations. My son-in-law (and daughter) is an artist and a huge movie fan and his hobby is collecting movie posters. In fact, their entire apartment is decorated in movie posters, some of them vintage, collected over a 25+ year period. :) Some of his movie posters he collected not because he particularly liked the movie, but because of the fantastic art work.

  2. A few of the homes in our area have theater rooms with recliners and a big screen (like a theater screen) on the wall. This would be an awesome poster to frame on hang in a theater room. It is very colorful and beautiful. Snow White was among the first movies many of us every saw and holds great childhood memories.

  4. Oh my goodness, Brenda - I had no idea that this classic movie held the record for highest grossing movie with sound after grossing $8M! This poster is bright, cheerful, adorable, and nostalgic, especially for those of us old enough to have seen it when we were kids.

  5. This is the first movie I remember seeing in the cinema. My mum and nan took myself and my brother, both of us have become avid film goers ever since (in fact my brother's a film critic now) there was just something magical about it.

  6. Love the classics, especially this film. I remember when the kids were little, I had a limited edition disney poster laminated, and I don't know where it ended up - bet someone landed something worth a few bucks - the colors on disney posters are what draws me to them - would love to do a whole room with disney themed art

  7. I remember loving this movie as a child. I don't think I ever saw it in a theater but did watch it on television more than once. I love the old posters. They truly are works of art! Funds would prohibit the purchase of a vintage one but if I were to buy a new reproduction I think I would want it in our family room where we could all enjoy it.

  8. Movie posters are a great way to decorate and I agree a little girl's room or even a baby shower gift (if you know the baby is a girl) would be a perfect way to share a love of all that is Disney. So much fun for reasonable prices (unless you go vintage). I like it a lot...
