Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Seventy-three years ago today "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" premiered in Los Angeles...
At the Carthay Circle Theatre, Walt Disney showed the world his dream of a full length animated film. A project that many thought would be a disaster, that Walt's rivals across town had laughingly dubbed "Disney's Folly" would go on to be the highest grossing film of the year.
They weren't laughing by the end of the year...

Carthay Circle Theater?
Where have I heard of that place?
Really? Right before Christmas? Wow, I thought that was a "modern thing". Walt showed the world that he was a genius.
His Christmas gift to the world in 1937 I guess.
Snow White is still a great movie. The animation of Snow is a little shaky, but everything else is charming, heartfelt, wonderfully funny and wonderfully magic.
I miss the earnest charm of movies like Snow White. Most modern animated films go for the low blow or snarkiness. God am I sick of that!
