Snow White among 'Foremost Films' of 1938

Foremost Films of 1938 is a 347-page book published in 1939. It's a film yearbook of sorts that features chapters on movies in Hollywood, Britain, Europe and Latin America. There's description and analysis of several individual films of the year including Wells Fargo, Love Finds Andy Hardy, and The Young At Heart, plus shorter reviews of many other movies, awards and obituaries. And of course there is a review and analysis of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Publisher info and Table of Contents...


The 14-page chapter on Snow White includes a detailed retelling of the film's story.

An analysis of the film begins on page 60. It includes an interesting comparison of Dopey and Grumpy to Donald Duck, and how the two dwarfs take on specific and distinct aspects of the feathered character.

Special thanks to Michael Filippello for sharing info and scans from this book.
