Product Description

One of the brightest nuggets from Disney's golden age, this 1937 film is almost dizzying in its meticulous construction of an enchanted world, with scores of major and minor characters (including fauna and fowl), each with a distinct identity. When you watch Snow White's intricate, graceful movements of fingers, arms, and head all in one shot, it is not the technical brilliance of Disney's artists that leaps out at you, but the very spirit of her engaging, girl-woman character. When the wicked queen's poisoned apple turns from killer green to rose red, the effect of knowing something so beautiful can be so terrible is absolutely elemental, so pure it forces one to surrender to the horror of it. Based on the Grimm fairy tale, Snow White is probably the best family film ever to deal, in mythic terms, with the psychological foundation for growing up. It's a crowning achievement and should not be missed. --Tom Keogh

Customer Reviews:

  • Better late than never --- I guess.
    I will never purchase from Disney DVD again. They were totally unresponsive after 4 email attempts to reach them, the product finally arrives a week after the end of the expected waiting period, AND the plastic cover on the Snow White DVD case was substantially torn.... not something I would want to give as a gift, which it was.
    This makes me question future Amazon purchases, since there is no way to know what kind of customer service & product value you will get, but I would advise others to NOT order from Disney DVD in the future if at all possible.... poor (no) customer service, poor product & poor delivery estimates. Extremely disappointed all the way around!...more info

  • have not received merchandise ordered on 4/29/09 from Bubbles_222
    Please advise me on how to resolve this problem. DVD was ordered on 4/29/09. Never received and Bubbles_222 was contacted and told me they would send another DVD. That also has not arrived here as of 5/29/09.
    I have probably already paid off the credit card bill. What recourse do I have at this point. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

  • Amazing
    The older Disney movie's were and are my favorites.

    This version of Snow White is vibrant and beautiful - the movie has never looked better.

    Like most Disney DVDs that come and go in their releases it can be sometimes hard to find, so make sure to get the DVD when you can. ...more info
  • It never came
    I waited almost thirty days (like they told me to) and the dvd never came. After I complained they told me that the product was sold out now and that they could only refund my money. They did refund my money, but I did not have a gift ready for my three year old niece's birthday. ...more info
  • Fantastic!
    Disney has announced that they are re-releasing Snow White on Platinum and Blu- Ray on October 5,2009! This is a great chance for those who didn't already buy it on time when it first came out....more info
  • Never Received Item
    I never received this item from the seller. I have written them three times and have received no resolution. This was suppose to be a Christmas gift for my daughter and I was unable to give it to her. I am very disappointed in the seller and suggest Amazon stop any business with them. ...more info
  • Case in bad condition
    Came and I assume it will play fine but the discs will not stay hooked in the package it is so damaged. It has looks like it has been smashed and barely stays closed, is cracked, and the back plastic cover is ripped. I knew it was used but I still expected the packaging to be in better condition for the price....more info
  • DVD Snow White
    Speedy delivery - perfect as described - many wonderful extras included. Granddaughters were thrilled at Christmas....more info
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Disney Special Platinum Edition) If you're tired of foul language and violence, recapture the excitement of your youth by viewing an original Disney classic. With the new advancements in sound reproduction and digital imagery, I actually feel my recent viewing of this movie was even better than in the '50s when I first saw this
    on the "big" screen. "Baby Boomer" nostalgia....more info
  • satisfied customer
    This movie came without a hard case. Some customers may be put off by that but since my collection has grown so big I got tired of trying to look for a movie and so many went unwatched just b/c they were hard to get to. I file mine in a DVD case and throw the movie case away. It makes it so easy to find the perfect movie. The shipping was fast, only being 3 or 4 business days and the movie was in a protective sleeve scratch free. I would order from this vendor again. Oh, and great movie too! lol...more info
  • Still waiting from seller

  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Disney Special Platinum Edition)
    Pure delight to see real artistic animation. Color, artistry, classical
    musicianship, and beauty. Every child and adult must see this Disney
    Academy Award winning animation classic. Restores the beliefs of
    giving, compassion, kindness, beauty and love.

    I received this DVD fast and it was in great shape, just like it said. My daughter really has enjoyed it. Thanks!...more info
  • Eh-So SO
    The DVD worked well, and the cover was good but it did not include the slip cover (which I really wanted). The fact that this was missing should have been included in the description....more info
  • Snow White DVD
    The product was rapidly received! DVD was on great condition as stated by the seller!...more info
  • Very disappointed!
    I was extremely disappointed and irritated with this DVD. The disc I received is defective. There is about 20 minutes missing from the tape due to this defect. I used it in my DVD player and I tried it in another DVD player and the same defect came thru in both players. The DVD is basically worthless with these defects.
    What makes it worse, is that it was a Christmas gift for my grandchildren.
    I will never purshase merchandise from this venue again. ...more info
  • Never received my movie
    I purchased this movie on January and its the 2nd to last week of February and I haven't received this movie. I am wondering if it got lost in the mail or they never shipped it. I was charged right away but haven't received the product....more info
  • wonderful
    it was lovely to see this classic once again, and the video/sound quality are very good! I prefer the original version with the sligltly faded colours as they seem more real... you feel like you're looking at a piece of history...and you are!...more info
  • Collectors Item
    Can you imagine NOT having Snow White in your collection? I missed it when it first came out and then lost track of getting a copy. Fortunately, other buyers were ahead of the curve and bought some to share with the rest of us when we got ready to buy. ...more info
  • Never received
    I ordered this DVD over a month ago. The delivery window ended on Feb. 9 and I still have not received the DVD. I have not had a response to my email asking about delivery either. The DVD was supposed to be a gift and I am very disappointed in the lack of service....more info

  • These are now PIRATED COPIES!!
    Let me tell everyone. All of the movies that are not being made anymore are now selling as PIRATED COPIES!! You cannot get an original Lion King, Snow White, Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast.....

    The sellers will tell you that they are original and factory sealed. But just check for the SECURITY SEAL. It is GONE!! There is no security seal on any of these. And the "paperwork" is all copied. The video quality is very poor. The originals are put into "flip page" cases, but the copies have the DVDs on the sides of the case, facing each other.

    THESE ARE PIRATED COPIES AND SOME OF THESE SELLERS DON'T EVEN KNOW IT. That's what makes it harder to report them. They are genuinely nice people and didn't mean to sell a copy. They really think it's an original. So, NO, I haven't reported anyone...just letting everyone know through this review....more info
  • perfect for disney fan
    disney movies are desired by anyone with children, especially girls, the problem is they are very difficult to find. i looked in all the major stores for dvds to purchase and asked around, and was always told the same thing, they only come out during certain times, they arent produced anymore etc. so i got the next best thing, vhs. Vhs movies are easy to find online and considerably cheaper than purchasing a dvd. most are used, but in very excellent condition depending upon which seller you choose. i have purchased about 10 disney vhs movies through amazon.com, and am pleased with all. the only thing that is sort of ironic is usually the shipping costs more than the product itself!:P...more info
  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
    I bought this movie for my grandchild and it is wonderful. Not only
    did they enjoy it, so did I. The service was fantastic. I received
    it fast and in perfect condition. Everything was great! I will use
    Amazon.com for future purchases without hesitation. Thank you so much....more info
  • Super Disney Classic
    Simply put this is a super Disney classic, worth every dime I paid for it. We purchased the movie because we were taking our three year old daughter to Disneyworld and she didn't even know who Snow White was because we couldn't rent the movie from a video store or the local library on DVD. I grew up on the Disney princess movies, she's a little girl and should be able to enjoy all of the Disney movies while she is still little. They need to re-release all of the Disney classics on DVD. A generation of little ones are missing out....more info
  • late and scratched
    I was very disappointed with this Amazon shopping experience. Not only did this video take weeks to arrive, and then only after contacting the seller, it was damaged. My daughter couldn't wait to see Snow White and unfortunately the scratched DVD skipped 5 minutes into the movie. I am so disappointed and upset that I spent 35 dollars for a movie we will never see!...more info
  • Delightful!
    Absolutely delightful! I didn't think I'd like this, but the animation is beautiful and the story took me back to my childhood. I would have given it 5 stars had it not been for Snow White's irritating voice. Parents if your kids haven't seen this, please get it for them before they get spoiled by Rugrats and South Park!!...more info
  • A Must Have
    We all know the movie, but it is still a must have for any Disney or movie fan. I live for commentary on the DVD. This by far is one of the best because it is provided by Walt Disney himself. Taken from interviews over a 25 year period we listen to one of the most influential producers and businessmen that ever lived. The second DVD has some of the best background info ever compiled about a film. The only DVD product that has more information on the man himself is called Walt:The Man behind the Myth....more info
  • Snow White
    This product was received in the condition that was said by the seller. I received it earlier than planned and it is a great movie. I really appreciate when a seller is up front with everything so there are no surprises later when received. Thank you very much for the movie my kids love it. ...more info
