Spanish Snow White Movie Posters

While many of the European premieres of Snow White occurred in 1938, Blancanieves y los 7 Enanitos would be delayed almost three years because of the Spanish Civil War, followed by the start of World War II.

  • 1952 RKO re-release
  • 1964 Filmax (soundtrack redub, recorded in Mexico City)
