Family Circle Magazine, 1938

Snow White and the Seven Dwarf's was reviewed 74 years ago today in this February 4th, 1938 issue of Family Circle magazine. Like most movie critics of the day, this one makes mention of the film's marvelous animation, the memorable songs, and the delightful story. It is "a beautiful, almost unbelievable picture!"

Yet, it's interesting that this reviewer also commented on how the performers are "shrouded in complete anonymity"--a reference of course to how no onscreen credit was given to any of the voice actors.

  1. It blows my mind that it has been 74 years since that movie came out!

  2. I know Connie. Time flies when you're having fun! :)

  3. Neat. I love old magazines, though 1938 is older than one usually sees!

  4. Major-- Yes, when you find them this old, they definitely reflect a different era than the one we live in now.
