This trip across our country has unearthed a lot of information that I didn't know and today I made a wonderful discovery that I am happy to share with you.

In 1933, four years before Disney's ground breaking and beautiful SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS premiered there was another animated version of this story created almost entirely by one man, Richard Crandall from Connecticut.  This is only a 7 minute film, but it took him six months to complete.  Actually that seems like a short time considering that each cell was created by hand and there are hundreds needed.  It is a wonderful piece of early animation with some great music and imaginative ideas galore.
