Snow White, the Sound Version

The Walt Disney Family Museum has opened a wonderful new exhibit Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Creation of a Classic to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Walt Disney's first feature-length animated film. 

Disney's Snow White was released in 1937 and of course it has sound, but fans of the classic tale will have a chance to see Marguerite Clark in the live-action silent version that inspired young Walt when it screened in Kansas City. Snow White (1916) screens at Silent Winter, the SF Silent Film Festival's winterlude on February 16, 2013 accompanied by Donald Sosin on grand piano.

In the meantime, don't miss WDFM's exhibit. Author J.B. Kaufman will be at the museum this Saturday, November 17 at 3:00 pm to talk with creative director Lella Smith about the chain of adaptations that led to Disney's Snow White, after which J.B. will sign copies of his beautiful new book, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Art and Creation of Walt Disney's Classic Animated Film.
