Abstract

In this essay, I seek to provide a detailed account of Snow White’s critical reception upon its initial release, based roughly 180 printed notices about Snow White that were published in 1937 and 1938. These writings include both articles, which primarily offer information about the film’s production and exhibition, and reviews, which concentrate on evaluating the film’s aesthetic qualities. Roughly two-thirds of these collected writings are articles and one-third are reviews. Since this essay aims to explicate the critical reception of Snow White from an aesthetic point of view, I will concentrate on the fifty-nine reviews in my collection of writings about the film.
