  • Adriana Caselotti's face may never ring a bell, but her voice is known wherever Walt Disney's Snow White is shown. Blessed with a delicate but unusually clear and high voice, Caselotti was only 19 when she was chosen out of 150 girls to portray the title character. Caselotti was born into a musically talented family. Her father came from Italy and was a vocal coach. Her mother was also Italian and once sang opera as did Caselotti's sister, Louise, who was famed in her own right and later trained Maria Callas to sing. Following the success of Snow White, Caselotti played small roles in a couple of other films, including The Wizard of Oz. She also frequently worked on radio. In 1987, she began making public appearances for Disney to promote the 50th anniversary edition of Snow White. Caselotti was honored by Disney Studios in 1994 when she received a Disney Legend Award and left her handprints in cement outside the Studio Theatre. She died of cancer at age 80 in her Los Angeles home.

QUOTES FROM Adriana Caselotti CHARACTERS

Snow White
Want to know a secret? / Promise not to tell? / We are standing by a wishing well / Make a wish into the well / that's all you have to do / And if you hear it echoing / Your wish will soon come true

I'm awfully sorry. I didn't mean to frighten you. But you don't know what I've been through. And all because I was afraid. I'm so ashamed of the fuss I made.
