In 1982, the Matti Ranin-directed Snow White release featured this poster. It utilizes artwork that's also seen in a British quad. The Finnish text in the yellow box translates approximately into "Walt Disney's most beloved animated motion picture arrives now as a new print and as a complete Finnish version". This indeed points to Mr. Ranin's picture which was the first dubbing to include both the Finnish-language dialogue and songs. Distributed by Suomi-Filmi Oy.
