Burbank, CA: Walt Disney Productions, 1938. Vintage studio press photograph of an animator painting a transparency of the character of Snow White from the 1937 film. Mimeo snipe on the verso.
Disney’s first full length animated feature, and one of the first animated feature films period, Snow White cost over $1.5 million, a huge sum at the time, and took three years to complete. Despite the risk (both Disney’s wife and brother tried to talk him out of producing it), the film was an immediate success both critically and financially, was nominated for an Academy Award in 1937, and in 1938, received an honorary Oscar, presented as a fully sized statuette and seven miniature ones.
8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Very Good Plus, slight crease on bottom right corner and some light edgewear.
