Do You Know?

Today is the birthday of Snow White and the Seven Dwarf. Released in 1937 ,between the end of the Depression and before the Second World War, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”was the first full-length animated cartoon with color and sound. This was at a time when Hollywood stars would thrive in the motion picture industry, in restoring thoughts of glamour to the everyday society of men and women, and Disney would begin its rise to the multi-faceted monopoly it is known for today. Trivia buffs: The dwarfs’ names were chosen from a pool of about fifty potentials which really included the names of Jumpy, Deafy, Dizzey,Hickey, Wheezy, Baldy, Gabby, Nifty, Sniffy, Swift, Lazy,Puffy, Stuffy, Tubby, Shorty and Burpy.

Do you know any of the societal and political meanings hidden within the movie?

Here is a link to my friend’s sight:

    I love Snow White, not the Disney fairy, fairy tale per say, though it has its endearing qualities. You might find my article about the Real Snow White interesting.
