Snow White is the first full length animated movie, and the first animated movie to be shot in technicolor. Other directors and producers believed at that time that no one was interested in watching an animated film in one and a half hour, but Walt Disney proved them dead wrong. Snow White was a giant success, and that was partially because of the new technology called Technicolor which made it possibly to make the movie in colors. However, this process was very expensive something that made Black & White customary until the 60ís.
This Walt Disney production is a masterpiece and you will end up watching it again and again when youíre a kid, and even at grown age you will love this movie. It will place a permantent smile on your face for the duration of the movie, and give you many laughs, thrills and tears. Itís brilliantly directed by David Hand and written by Dorothy Ann Blank and Richard Creedon. This is a classic animated movie, that you simply arenít allowed to miss.
