Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (2-Disc Platinum) [DVD]
In two “guided tours,” a viewer can see a selection of the excellent extras on the history and creation of Walt Disney’s crown jewel. Disc 1 has an informative 40-minute documentary, plus karaoke songs, a neat trivia game, and Barbra Streisand’s new version of “Some Day My Prince Will Come.” Like Fantasia, the commentary track is expertly made up of historical recordings from over the years by Disney himself. The second disc brings out abandoned concepts, a crisp storyboard-to-film comparison, hundreds of well-organized drawings, and many historical recordings. The centerpiece, “Disney Through the Decades,” is a mixed blessing of information and hype. Disney pride aside, they have done well with the film (now looking better than ever) that laid the foundation of their empire.
