Lucky old us, we are on the Think Parents panel and this means that we get sent lots of Disney DVDs. This month, we got Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The classic film has been re-released on Blue-Ray and DVD.
Snow White is a remarkable film, it is one of those classic bits of animation that has lasted for decades and looks as good today as was made in 1937. Or, so I imagine. To put this date into context it was made before Hitler annexed Poland. Before Gone With the Wind was made and even before Neighbours became a popular television programme.
It was actually the first film I ever went to see at the cinema when it was re-released in 1982. I can remember the excitement clearly, even now. I wanted to be Snow White for years after that. This is a great chance to get a really tip top version of the film, we loved every second of it. Partly, I think, because I actually sat and watched it with Toddler boy, discussing different parts of it and how I felt when I was little and saw it for the first time. There are not many films that enable you to do that.
If the kids haven’t seen Snow White make sure they do, as its one of those unmissable classics.
