Snow White Attacks!

Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" was released 70 years ago today.

Although some film critics like to hint that Walt Disney took too much credit for the animations that came out of his studio, this promotional short seems to make an honest effort to show that many people did the work.

But what I like most about this piece is the way the off-camera narrator barks out every line as if the Empire of Japan had just bombed Pearl Harbor. I guess that was "gravitas" for the 1930's. When the Empire of Japan finally did attack, this guy was ready.
