    Description

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (RKO, 1937). French Affiche (23.5" X 31.5").
    Walt Disney's first full-length animated feature was an instant classic, and remains one of the all-time greatest cinematic feats, which nearly bankrupted Disney with the production costs running over $1.5 million, a princely sum in the 1930s. After the initial screening, which garnered a standing ovation, the film became a box-office sensation. The attention to detail, well-developed characters, color, innovative animation techniques, and pure storytelling have become hallmarks of Disney, and this is the film that started the studio's legacy. Generations have grown up with this fairy tale and the beloved songs: "With a Smile and a Song," "Whistle While You Work," "Heigh-Ho," "Some Day My Prince Will Come," making this one of the most popular titles for movie poster collectors. Offered here is the stunning first release French poster which uses the same gorgeous stone litho artwork as the US paper, with the cast of characters in full, lush colors. It has been professionally restored to touch-up writing at the top edge, and a vertical tear at the left side. Original paper from this timeless tale is always a prized item, and this sumptuous poster will garner much attention for generations to come! Fine+ on Linen.
