1938 US Snow White Lobby Cards


These are some beauts! The original lobby cards from the 1938 RKO release of Snow White..."in the Marvelous Multiplane Technicolor." Gustaf Tenggren's distinctive contribution to this set is clearly evident in the Witch, Forest, and Log scenes. Each measures 11" X 14", is stamped with "©W.D.P.", and has a description of the image in the lower right hand corner.

A total of eight posters make up the set, which includes a title card.

This last lobby card shows a scene that never occurred in the film's storyboard meetings...hanging stocking on Christmas Eve in the Dwarfs' cottage.

The original lobby card sleeve pictured here comes from the Leonard and Alice Maltin Collection.
