Walt Disney's original animated film is legendary both for its precedence and quality of craft. In 1937 few could predict what a monumental legacy this cartoon fairy tale adaptation would leave. Its gorgeous art is rivaled only by the sweeping scope of its charming storytelling- now screened in a beautiful restored version for the first time at the JPT in 50+ years as part of Newport's family-fun-filled Winter Festival.

The Grimm fairy tale gets a Technicolor treatment in Disney's first animated feature. Jealous of Snow White's beauty, the wicked queen orders the murder of her innocent stepdaughter, but later discovers that Snow White is still alive and hiding in a cottage with seven friendly little miners. Disguising herself as a hag, the queen brings a poisoned apple to Snow White, who falls into a death-like sleep that can be broken only by a kiss from the prince.
