Animation Cel of Snow White with the Poison Apple
Walt Disney’s masterpiece, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs can be considered the most important animated film in history. Disney risked everything financially to produce what was the first full color full length animated cartoon, which was released in 1937 by RKO Radio Pictures. This is a rare and almost perfect production animation cel of Snow White including the poison apple she has just accepted from the Witch.
Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs was based on the German fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. In the film, after the Evil Queen finds out through her Magic Mirror that Snow White is still alive, she turns herself by magic into an old hag, the Witch. She then creates a poison apple which will put anyone who takes even one bite into the “Sleeping Death”. Snow White takes that bite immediately after the image in this animation cel.
