The film was hugely successful, and has been continually re-released ever since. Despite being nearly 80 years old, it continues to be popular, and the film’s popularity has meant that it has had a tremendous influence on the life of fairy tales in American culture generally (in that it spawned the animated fairy-tale film industry, and influenced the cinematic adaptations of many other fairy tales), and on new renditions of the Snow White tale specifically.
So we’ll start our discussion of Snow White with this film, since it’s pretty much ground zero for the American image of the tale.
When we watch films in this course, our goal will be to critically examine and analyze them; in particular, we’ll want to think about how the film medium may add additional layers of meaning through it’s visual and auditory elements that do some work in communicating with the audience. When we examine a film, ask yourself:
As you watch each scene, note down specific details of the film – images, sounds, music, words, and events – that you think are significant, and how they produce certain effects in the audience. Be specific!
The goal is to tie the effects that we perceive the film as having, and the ideas it communicates, to the concrete features of the film.
Let’s start by isolating a specific scene and examining it closely.
