The film is as charming as it is novel in conception and execution and it is so bound to appeal as strongly to grown-ups as to youngsters.

To say of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs that it is among the genuine artistic achievements of this country takes no great daring.

So perfect is the illusion, so tender the romance and fantasy, so emotional are certain portions when the acting of the characters strikes a depth comparable to the sincerity of human players, that the film approaches real greatness.

You've probably seen it 15 times by now, so why not make it 16?

...the animation itself is top-notch, and in a number of darker sequences (Snow White's terrified entry into the forest, for example), Disney's adoption of Expressionist visual devices makes for genuinely powerful drama.

It is a classic, as important cinematically as The Birth of a Nation or the birth of Mickey Mouse.

To one degree or another, every animated feature made since owes it something.

Like many of the Disney films, from Pinocchio to Fantasia, this film is a cinematic rite of passage -- for children and adults.
