2014 E.L.F. Snow White Cosmetics at Walgreens

It was in September of last year, and the year before, that E.L.F. Cosmetics released a couple of Disney makeup series at Walgreens. Both collections had a villains theme which included the Evil Queen. (See the posts from 2012 and 2013.) This year, however, they changed things up a bit by issuing an Ariel series in June, followed by Snow White in July.

Lucie Dolène Autograph

Lucie Dolène played the voice of Snow White in the 1962 French redub of Disney's Blanche Neige et les Sept Nains. Last year, researcher Greg Philip had the good fortune to meet her.

Lucie was kind enough to autograph this 8x10 which shows an image of her today and also from the 1962 recording studio in Paris where she voiced the role.

In another photo, Lucie is seen onstage with the Snow White characters, probably at the Euro Disney Resort. The image comes from a TV and video magazine which dates from 1994, the year that the movie was first issued to home video on VHS and LaserDisc.
