"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," Walt Disney's gorgeously produced musical feature-length animated picture In Technicolor,' was launched with a notable world-premiere at the Carthay Circle theatre in Ijb Angeles shortly before last Christmas, fol lowed thereafter with a record-breaking run at the New York's world-famed Radio City Music hall, and has become the sensation of motion picture entertainmetit. It has taken its place .in the Trout ranks of important film attractions. In production for three years, and costing a million and a half dollars, "Snow White" is expected to establish a Bt'incUucl for future animated features in much Use same manner that "The Birth oi a Nation" Influenced the epic :ycie that followed. The Disney picture Is a drastic departure from previous technique In the animated field, in that liv ing, credible beings have been created In the persons of Snow White, the seven dwarfs, the IS'lOIMITE" Rpcdul music instruments wore built up wIUi in l ho Disney studios tor the background music in some sequences of the Hist animated feature, "Snow White and the Sev en Dwarfs." An example of this was the special construction of tympanies, capable of going up to C sharp, four mil tones higher than the average tympanies. Those were usod to excellent effect In the inohtacu. .seauences. shawintx .Snow White running terrified through dark woods. The studio musicians created descriptive musical backgrounds for the wicked queen and the witch into which she turns herself by tho use of low cello notes, basses and bassoons. When the ' dwarfs believe Snow White is dead, and build her a case of crystal and glass so that they still may admire her beauty, the vibrant swelling tones of a church organ are heard. These blend sub tly into a large chorus of mixed voices and underlying, harp music in tiie later scenes which show tho handsome young prince com ing upon Snow White's coffin in the woods. Voices and a full or chestra rise into a crescendo in the final scenes showing the prince and Snow White riding away to "happiness ever after." queen, the prince and other characters in the famous Grimms phantasy. In addition, tho art treatment departs radically from cartoon expression. An illusion of depth has been added through the use of the multiplane camera, an invention perfected by Disney technicians. This new camera treatment makes three-dimension al figures out of characters drawn in a two-dimensional medium. Added interest attaches to tho eight musical numbers in the fea ture, the outstanding one being "Hi-Ho," a marching song sung by the dwarfs , The story relates the adventure of a beautiful young Bcullery maid whose youth and charm arouse the envy of a wicked queen, who plots in various ways to get rid of her forever. How the queen nearly succeeds after seeking out Snow White in the la tier's refuge among seven kindly dwarfs, and bow the little heroine Is finally rescued by her Prince Charming is pictured with exquisite artistry and humor combined. Forest Friends Spared by the wicked Queen's executioner, Snow-White is guided through tho, woods- by - tho kindly animals in.Wnlt,; Disney's - full-length feature, "Snow While' and the Seven Dwarfs," distributed by UKO Itadio. jects are one continuous laugh trom start to finish, his first fea ture presents all the elements of great entertainment: Romance, pathos, suspense and humor. Although the othor established Disney characters are all animals, for "Snow While" he has created human beings with human emo tions,, intended to be as real to the audience as flesh-and-blood players. APPEAL OF FILM I E Washing may not be au event in the lives of moat people, but It Is In the cases of the BOven dwarfs In Walt Disney's first feature-length production, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" and it happens to provide a criBls. One of the many amusing sequences In the seven-reel animated Technicolor production takes ploce when Snow White, taking refuge from the wicked queen In the dwarfs' woodland cottage, is mildly horrified to find that her newly-found friends are not only the world's worst housekeepers but are barely acquainted with the uses of water, where themselves. their clothes and their dishes arc concerned. In one Instance, she makes all seven file out to the trough back of the cottage to wash their faces and hands, bidding them also nut to forget their beards. Aftur Doc, self-appointed leader of the band, tells them not to be nervous concerning the oitleal, thoy fall to, to the accompaniment of a merry melody with amusing lyrics. Authors responsible for such Disney song hits as "Who's ATraid of the Big Bad Wolf," "You're Nuthln' Hut a Nuthin'." and "The World Owes Me a Living." created the melodies for Walt Ms-noy's foature-lRiigtu production. "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." The numbers include "Whistle While You Work." anil "Isn't This a Silly Song." and "111-Ho," the dwarfs' marching song. Following the first showings of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," many from tho audiences declared that the dwarfs will be able to claim stardom iu their own right. However, while their en-: gaging qualities will endrar them lo millions, back in the paint pots they went when Walt Disney com- f plcted the picture. He fouls that i lo bring any of the "Snow White" characters to the screen again I would be an antl-cllmax. They be-1 long In "Snow White" and "Snow i White" only. Walt Disney Introduces an en tirely new set of characters In his realure-lengtli production, "Snow While and the Seven Dwarfs." These newly-created characters will bo seen only in this one feature, aa their creator feols It would be an antl-cllmax lo put them. In any other vehicle. Walt DlBiiey'8 "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," which runs well over an hour, Is composed of over 250,000 druwiugs, with a musical background provided by un orchestra of 80 Omnsicians.

Saturday, May 14 Nume of CoiileaUuit. Wait Disney's conception of small birds and animals la one of the many reasons why he und his productions are beloved by old and young alike. His little rabbits. squirrels, chipmunks, bluebirds and tortoises have exquisitely appealing qualities. Logically enough Disney chose ' Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" for his first full- length animated feature with its many chances to include animal characters. When Snow White flees from the malice of the wicked queen and becomes lost in the woods, she is frightened by the oncoming darkness and tbe eerie forest Bounds, and runs until she falls exhausted. It is then that deer, rabbits, chipmunks and birds befriend her and lead her to tho shelter, the tiny cottage owned by tho .seven dwarfs. One of jtho most charming scenes in the production lakes placo when Snow White, finding tho cottage dirty, enlists the aid of her animal friends in cleaning It, Squirrels use their tails as brooms, others stack dirty dishes and hop up and down on the pump handle to draw water. Tho bright-colored :,birUs. hang clothes on the, line after the other animals havo washed' them, using, the tortoise's underneath side for a washboard. It Is the birds and animals who discover that the old hag who visits Snow White in the cottage is really the wicked queen in disguise, ready lo poison her with a magic apple. It is they who warn the seven dwarfs who immediately Jump on the animals' backs and give chase to the menace. Tho animals in "Snow White' are not caricatured, nor do they ever talk, although Disney gifts them with human Intelligence. Each one Is pictured as a creature of charming individuality.
