The story is well-known, based on the Grimm fairy tale. An evil queen is jealous of her pure and beautiful stepdaughter, Snow White. The queen commands a huntsman to kill the princess but he cannot bring himself to do it. The girl escapes to a cottage inhabited by seven bachelor dwarfs. While in hiding, Snow White dreams of love but the queen is hatching a new plan.
Disney's Snow White owes much of its legacy to the songs, all written by Frank Churchill and Larry Morey. "Heigh Ho" and "Whistle While You Work" are both classics. The crown jewel is "Some Day My Prince Will Come," a well-established jazz standard. I'm not a huge fan of Adriana Caselotti, the uncredited voice of Snow White - rather shrill, an example of an unfortunate style of the era. More satisfying is Harry Stockwell, the uncredited voice of The Prince.
