Editorial Reviews

Gordon Flagg
To coincide with "Snow White"'s home-video debut, Disney's book division has published this lavish celebration of the 1937 groundbreaker that verified that audiences would go for feature-length cartoons. Krause provides a critically incisive account of making the film, from its inception through its three years in production to its wildly enthusiastic reception by audiences and critics. Witkowski supplies a detailed, fairly technical explanation of the animation process as well as a guide to the preservation and handling of animation art designed to appeal to serious students of the genre. The heart of the volume is a retelling of the famous story scene-by-scene by means of cel reproductions, pencil drawings, and other production art. Libraries that already own Hollis and Sibley's "Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs & the Making of the Classic Film" (1987) may find its slimmer treatment adequate; if choosing between the old and new books, however, its more sophisticated text and better selection and reproduction of artwork make Krause-Witkowski clearly superior.
