Quotes from

[Snow White has been seated upon a white horse by the Prince, and as the Dwarfs crowd around, he lifts each of them up so that she may kiss them farewell on the forehead]
[Bashful is lifted up]
Snow White: Good-bye.
[she kisses Bashful, and his blush turns his face red]
Snow White: [Grumpy is hoisted up, grinning]
Snow White: Good-bye, Grumpy.
[as he is lowered down, he blows her a kiss back]
Snow White: Good-bye.
[more of the Dwarfs are lifted up, and she kisses them one by one]
Snow White: [Dopey is the last one lifted up, and before she kisses him, he wipes his mouth]
Snow White: Oh, Dopey.
[she takes him by the ears, and kisses him on the top of his head]
Snow White: [as the Prince leads the horse off, Snow White blows the Dwarfs and animals one last kiss]
Snow White: Good-bye!
[the Prince and Snow White go to the edge of a cliff, and look out into the sky, where the setting sun transforms the clouds into a beautiful castle]
Chorus: Some day when spring is here / We'll find our love anew / And the birds will sing / And wedding bells will ring / Some day when my dreams / Come true.
[the story book from the beginning of the film reappears, with the words "... and they lived happily ever after." printed in it. The book slowly closes, as the Chorus sings and wedding bells toll]


Queen: But wait! There may be an antidote. Nothing must be overlooked.
[Reads]
Queen: Ah, here it is! "The Victim of the Sleeping Death can be revived only by Love's First Kiss." "Love's First Kiss." Bah! No fear of that. The dwarves will think she's dead. She'll be buried alive!
[Cackles]
Queen: Buried alive!


Snow White: Want to know a secret? / Promise not to tell? / We are standing by a wishing well / Make a wish into the well / that's all you have to do / And if you hear it echoing / Your wish will soon come true.

Facts about

The first full-length animated feature film to come out of the United States. (The first ever were El apĆ³stol and Sin dejar rastros by Quirino Cristiani but both films are considered lost. The oldest full-length animated feature film that can still be seen today is Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed, which clocks in at 65 minutes, and was animated entirely in silhouette.)
Because Walt Disney Pictures did not have its own music publishing company when the earlier animated films were produced, all the rights to publish the music and songs from this film are actually still controlled by the Bourne Co. In later years, the Studio was able to acquire back the rights to the music from all of the other films, except this one. Prior to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, a movie soundtrack recording was unheard of and with little value to a movie studio.
During the scene where the Dwarfs wash before eating Dopey swallows a bar of soap. A sequence showing how they got the soap back out of him was filmed as a pencil test but was not included in the film. It was later shown on the "Disneyland" TV show along with pencil test segment for the song "The Music In Your Soup".
