Some early sequences seem a tad uncertain, but a little way in all becomes surer of itself and, for now going on eighty years ago, a miracle.

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.

Disney's first animated feature pushed the art form in thrilling new directions, completely redrawing a much-loved fairy tale of bad stepmothers, forest glades and handsome princes that previously existed only on the printed page.

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

There are only a tiny number of films that have come anywhere close to equaling its achievement.

It luxuriates in the art of animation, watching the various animals race through the woods, or watching Snow White running scared from an array of imaginary horrors.

the film's overall effect is undeniable, not only on the history of cinema as a whole, but in each new viewing that reveals another dimension or additional detail, the sum total of which is one of the true cinematic masterpieces

Great movie, great treatment, but if you're particular about your collection, know that the combo pack is available in both DVD and Blu-ray packaging.

It is Snow White's afterbirth that merits both canonization and destruction.

In addition to its historical value as the first animated feature, it is still a delight, with memorable songs and characters.

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.

Most remarkable in Snow White's romps through the forest with her pack of animal pals, Disney's brilliant cell animation has rarely been equaled.
