Snow White #1 in "Yearbook of Motion Pictures"

Film Daily was an American motion picture trade journal published from the early 20th century up until 1970. Each year, they would issue a hardbound recap of the movie accomplishments of the prior year.

In the 1939 edition of their Yearbook of Motion Pictures, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was honored as the Number One film of 1938, as ranked by a poll of national film critics. The other nine "Top Ten" pictures were similarly honored, each with full-page display.

A full color example of this images was originally used for one of the 1938 US lobby cards.
