    Description

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (RKO, 1937). Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41") Style B, Gustaf Tenggren Artwork.
    A truly momentous junction in film history, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs may never have left the drawing board if not for the passion, determination, and sheer stubbornness of Walt Disney. Critics in the press dubbed his vision as "Disney's Folly," his brother and business partner Roy derided the venture, and his own wife attempted to dissuade him numerous times from pursuing the project. Walt Disney defied them all. His persistence created one of the most massive genres in the business, a billion dollar industry that has shaped the world view of children and adults alike for nearly eighty years. An absolute must-have for Disney fans, the style B boasts the most beautiful artwork of the three different style one sheets, with the whole cast rendered in gorgeous detail and soft pastels by Gustaf Tenggren. Well restored, this one sheet has had corrections to fold wear and mild separations, pinholes, small tears, and a couple of minor chips at the edges and folds. The poster was once trimmed below the RKO text near the bottom border, but this has since been skillfully replaced. To round out this one sheet's fantastic conservation, there has been partial airbrushing in the borders and white background. Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $5,000 - $10,000.
