DescriptionSnow White and the Seven Dwarfs (RKO, 1937). Fine+ on Linen. One Sheet (27.25" X 41") Style B, Gustaf Tenggren Artwork.
As the first animated full length feature to be brought to the world, Walt Disney's film has embedded itself in the hearts of viewers for generations. Gustaf Tenggren perfectly captures the endearing qualities of Snow White and the Dwarfs on this enchanting poster. Considered by many to be the best of the three styles released for the picture, this scarce one sheet is coveted by collectors. One poster sold by Heritage in 2014 brought over $20,000. Our experience with the style B one sheet shows that there were different printings, indicated by differences in the coloration and markings in the lower left corner denoting the style. Restoration has been applied to fold wear and separations, pinholes, small chips, and writing bleedthrough. Also addressed were a couple of slivers of paper loss at the top of the side borders, a few scratches, and some tears, one of which extends from the lower border to "N" in "Disney." A few minor instances of the aforementioned issues and faint staining are still visible. There is partial airbrushing in the borders. Regarded as one of Disney's top works, this picture and its posters remain favorites among fans everywhere.
Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
