Description

    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (RKO, 1937). Insert (14" X 36").
    Considered at the time to be "Disney's Folly," this animated feature length film - the first ever produced in the United States - was a considerable gamble for the studio. Although both his brother, Roy, and his wife, Lillian, tried to talk Walt out of undertaking this expensive project, the legendary creator believed in it so much that he actually mortgaged his home to finance it. The film spent three years in production, racking up a cost of more than $1.5 million, and revolutionized animation in the process. The result was a fantastic success, quickly becoming the highest-grossing feature ever at the time (it was supplanted in 1939 by Gone With the Wind). It remains today one of Disney's finest achievements, a perennial favorite for generations of fans. The beautiful insert offered here, featuring glorious art by Gustaf Tenggren, had pinholes in the corners, staining in the borders, small edge tears, a tear in the bottom right corner, small holes in the lower left border and in the image area, chips in the bottom right border and the top left corner, and light fold wear. Professional restoration has expertly addressed these issues, making this a poster that any collector will be proud to own. Fine- on Paper.
