|Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - Trailer 1937|
trailer for home video release:
It was well-received when it was first released. Moria calls it "a genuine classic". It's on Roger Ebert's list of great movies, and he closes his review with this:
It remains the jewel in Disney's crown, and although inflated modern grosses have allowed other titles to pass it in dollar totals, it is likely that more people have seen it than any other animated feature. The word genius is easily used and has been cheapened, but when it is used to describe Walt Disney, reflect that he conceived of this film, in all of its length, revolutionary style and invention, when there was no other like it--and that to one degree or another, every animated feature made since owes it something.
