December 21, 1937
This magnificent poster (art by Gustaf Tenggren) heralded the release of Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Premiering a matter of weeks after the final animation was completed, Snow White was an unqualified hit, and became the most popular movie ever released up until that time. In numbers of actual tickets sold on that first release and on its many reissues over the years, Snow White has probably been seen by more people than any other feature film.
