INTRODUCTION
"The Fairest and the Scariest"

I saw Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs first time in 1984, when it was re-released worldwide for the umpteenth time. I have always remembered that I was only a 7-years-old little boy, but the mathematic truth is that I was somewhere between 9-10 years old. Apparently the movie "brought back the child" in me too, as it has done to many many others since its premiere in 1937.

Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs had a profound effect on me - and an everlasting one, too, because after 22 years I still regard it as the best motion picture ever made. However, the most surprising aspect of my "love at first sight" was that I wasn't particularly enchanted by the cute critters nor the comical dwarfs -- I fell in love with the elegant Evil Queen and the movie's dark atmosphere. It took some sixteen years for me to notice - and to admit - that the animals and the little men are spectacularly animated and manage to draw many sincere laughs out of me, too. Yet the dark side of Disney's Snow White has always fascinated me more, because it is an extremely important ingredient of a most perfect mixture of drama and fantasy, beauty and horror.

In 1987 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs celebrated its 50th Anniversary worldwide. On that specific summer I visited California's Disneyland for the first time and got to experience a memorable Snow White stage show and a fun-filled parade. I also fell in love with the dark, atmospheric Snow White's Scary Adventures attraction. That summer I also got my hands on an excellent book about making of the movie (written by Richard Holliss and Brian Sibley). For me the book represented an enchanted Magic Mirror revealing many hidden secrets of the movie. The book sealed my destiny in many ways - and I only fell more in love with the multilayered world of Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

A common misconception places Disney movies into the "kids" category. The man named Walt Disney didn't make his movies (nor his theme parks) just for children, but more to himself -- to the grown-up who hasn't lost the child within. Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs represents the most genuine Walt Disney and therefore it may be the scariest of all the movies produced by the studio. Even Walt Disney himself became more cautious with the villains in his later movies because of Snow White's evil "Witch". Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has a spine-chilling legacy of many original horrors - and those horrors are the main things celebrated on this KenNetti database.
