    Description

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (RKO, 1937). Fine/Very Fine on Paper. Insert (14" X 36").
    Walt Disney had entertained the idea of producing a feature-length animated film for years, and when financial troubles began to brew, Disney knew he had to come up with something new to save his company. He invested $1,500,000 and three years of hard work, along with the combined talents of 570 artists, into the production of this animation classic. The film was a huge success, earning $8,500,000 Depression-era dollars, that not only saved the company financially, but also laid the foundation for the animation empire that was to follow. The film was such "a significant screen innovation" that it was given a special Oscar (and seven tiny Oscars) in 1939. Showcasing classic artwork by Gustaf Tenggren, the celebrated Swedish artist. Restoration has addressed fold wear and pinholes. The borders have been airbrushed, but minor creasing and corner bends on the borders are still evident. There has been color touchup on the edges of the interior art and there is some very minor color fading.




    Estimate: $4,000 - $8,000.
