Snow White Original production Drawing - $1200 (Smithtown)
"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937) is the first full-length animated feature film (83 minutes in length) in color and with sound ever produced. Walt Disney had to create a new format for making cartoons because of the tales complexity and length. Among many innovations, he used a multi-plane camera to heighten the illusion of depth, and the films characters were modeled after live actors and were given human characteristics. Also, large hand painted cells and drawing boards were used both in the feature's production and as part of the planning process. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs took four years to make, and cost 1.7 million dollars. It premiered during the Christmas season of 1937 and was nominated for an Oscar for Best Score. Walt Disney received an Honorary Oscar for the film, as it was "recognized as a significant screen innovation which has charmed millions and pioneered a great new entertainment field for the motion picture cartoon."
The tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was adapted from a story written by the Brother's Grimm, in "Children's and Household Tales", published in 1812.
