Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

I took Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to watch with The Grandmother because it's one of my favorite of the Disneys. She didn't remember seeing it even though she said she was working and could afford movie-going at the time. She did remember her Uncle Walter being excited about taking Great Aunt Frankie to see it. After we watched it she remembered having seen it before, most likely with us when we were young or with her grandchildren during one of its re-releases. Adriana Caselotti voices Snow White.

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.

6/15/2012: The Husband chose this to watch tonight. It'd been a long time since he'd seen it.
