Quotes from

Queen: [Passes the skeleton of a prisoner reaching for a pitcher] Thirsty? Have a drink!
[Kicks the pitcher; the skeleton crumbles and a spider skitters out]


Queen: Magic Mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?


[first lines]
Queen: Slave in the magic mirror, come from the farthest space, through wind and darkness I summon thee. Speak! Let me see thy face.
Magic Mirror: What wouldst thou know, my Queen?
Queen: Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?
Magic Mirror: Famed is thy beauty, Majesty. But hold, a lovely maid I see. Rags cannot hide her gentle grace. Alas, she is more fair than thee.
Queen: Alas for her! Reveal her name.
Magic Mirror: Lips red as the rose. Hair black as ebony. Skin white as snow.
Queen: Snow White!

Facts about

One of only two personally produced Walt Disney feature-length animated films not to carry the screen credit "Walt Disney Presents". Instead, the first credit reads "A Walt Disney Feature Production" (since it was Disney's first feature-length film). The other personally-produced Disney film not to say "Walt Disney Presents" was "Fantasia", which, in its roadshow release, contained no written credits at all except for the intermission card, and in its general release, contained only the title "Fantasia" in its opening credits.
"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie on December 26, 1938 with many of the Walt Disney voice artists reprising their film roles.
Dopey initially was to be a talking dwarf, but was made mute when a suitable voice was not found.
