A Kiss For Dopey
This poster for the 1967 re-release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs spotlights one of the most iconic moments in animation history: the little princess kissing Dopey atop his bald head. I like the way the poster artist added an extra, delightful touch to this famous pose by having Dopey give a backward kick. Walt Disney’s first feature-length animated film was originally released on December 21, 1937, so the re-release cited above celebrated the film’s 30th anniversary and also served as a salute to the late Walt Disney.
