Here are 10 things you probably did not know about Snow White till now….*
- Walt Disney wanted to keep Snow White’s voice as a special one-time sound, and heldAdriana Caselotti to a very strict contract. Except for a tiny bit part in The Wizard of Oz(1939), she never had a real singing part in a movie again, though she was a classically trained singer.
- Deanna Durbin auditioned for the voice of Snow White, but was not chosen becauseWalt Disney felt her voice was too mature. She was 14 at the time.
- At the end, when Snow White is leaving, she kisses all the dwarfs goodbye, except for Sleepy.
- Disney Studios in Burbank was built with the profits from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).
- Snow White is the youngest Disney Princess at the age of 14.
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) became the first release in Disney’s new Platinum Edition DVD series, hitting stores on October 5, 2001. On its first day, more than 1 million copies were sold.
- When the movie was played at Radio City Music Hall on its first release, the theater managers had to replace the music played when Snow White runs into the forest, because they were nervous about that the kids would be too scared upon hearing it.
- Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora can communicate with animals. Also all three of these classic princesses wore peasant clothes at the beginning of her film.
- At a recording session, Lucille La Verne, the voice of the Wicked Queen, was told byWalt Disney‘s animators that they needed an older, raspier version of the Queen’s voice for the Old Witch. Ms. Laverne stepped out of the recording booth, returned a few minutes later, and gave a perfect “Old Hag’s voice” that stunned the animators. When asked how she did it, she replied, “Oh, I just took my teeth out.”
- There are only 11 human characters in the film – Snow White, the Dwarfs, the Queen, the Prince, and the Huntsman. Of these, the Prince is the only one never named.
