5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST VERSIONS YOU WILL EVER SEE.... March 3 2004
By J. Fees - Published on Amazon.com
When I first saw this wonderful film, I was a little kid in elementary school and there are parts of this movie that just stick with you and really stand out. I am a HUGE fan of all of the cannon movie tales but this one is my favorite alongside Sleeping Beauty and Hansel and Gretel. The music in this film is absolutely beautiful and the sets are awesome. I especially love the segments when the queen is consulting her mirror. Diana Rigg is brilliant in her role as the wicked queen and Nicola Stapleton really becomes the character of little Snow White. The foreshadowing in this movie is very creative and while we all know the story of Snow White, this particular film delivers lots of surprises. I especially love the first part of the film where we first discover the wicked queen standing in front of her mirror with all of the ladies in waiting fixing her up for a ball. This part helps foreshadow the methods by which the queen will try to rid herself of Snow White. A completely original and wonderful approach to a well known fairy tale. Sarah Patterson as Snow White at age 16 really has all of the innocence and beauty to play the princess. The dwarfs are very authentic and have the same charm that we have come to love from the more traditional versions of the story. Overall, this is a movie not to be missed. It is not overly cute or sweet. In fact, I believe the feeling of the film is quite dark but still enjoyable for the very young. Watch for the surprise ending and you will see why this version really pulls out all of the stops to bring the fairy tale of Snow White to life!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannon Movie Tales Finally on DVD! June 5 2005
By Heidi Anne Heiner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Diana Rigg is the Evil Queen in this Cannon Movie Tale musical based on the popular tale from the Brothers Grimm.

Here's the movie's description available from Sony Pictures: "Mirror, mirror, on the wall...who's the fairest storybook heroine of them all? Snow White! Sarah Patterson (The Company of Wolves) stars as the fabled slumbering beauty while Emmy winner Diana Rigg ("The Avengers") serves up some "delicious comic villainy" (Variety) as the wicked stepmother who's consumed by vanity in this thrilling live-action adaptation of the classic Brothers Grimm tale.

"After her jealous stepmother (Rigg), the queen, tries to have her killed, Snow White (Patterson) runs away into the forest, where she finds refuge with seven kindly dwarves. But when the queen discovers she's still alive, she decides to destroy her rival herself using clever disguises. Finally, a poisonous apple does the trick - or so she thinks - until the handsome prince arrives to save Snow White!"

The Cannon Movie Tale series of nine films has become nearly as popular among fairy tale enthusiasts and family film fans as Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre. Some would argue that this series is even more popular. Either way, these musicals are suitable for the entire family and feature well-known actors from the 1980s.

I've been looking for this movie for a long time and finally found it. I'm so happy that I found it on DVD and brand new. This is the best version of Snow White I've seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fairest One of All! May 19 2006
By Monty Moonlight - Published on Amazon.com
Legendary stars Billy Barty and Diana Rigg bring one of the world's most beloved fairy tales to life in the Cannon Movie Tale, "Snow White." Starring beautiful and charming Sarah Patterson (The Company of Wolves) in the title role as the princess who fled her wicked, jealous, and murderous stepmother's castle as a child, "Snow White" tells the tale of how the princess is taken in by seven kindly dwarfs living in a cottage in the forest. As the dwarfs go off to dig in their mines each day, Snow White cooks and keeps house for years, growing into a sweet and lovely young woman. But, as Snow White grows ever more beautiful, the evil queen grows ever more jealous. Consulting her magic mirror and book of spells for ways to terminate Snow White, the dwarfs must repeatedly undo her vicious magic. It seems the final spell is beyond even the dwarfs abilities to break though. Their only hope lies in a young prince who is returning home from a long journey still seeking a great discovery to satisfy the longing in his heart.

"Snow White" sits among the best of the nine wonderful Cannon Movie Tales, which are among the best live-action fairy tale films available to date. Sticking more closely to the original stories from the Brothers Grimm, "Snow White" and the other Cannon tales mix in simple but fun-filled songs with fantastic casts and writing that blends realism and fantasy seamlessly. "Snow White" features some of the best songs in the lot, and it's clear that Diana Rigg really has a ball with her villainous role. It's so terrific that these childhood favorites many of us remember from the Disney Channel's 1980's and early 90's glory are finally available on DVD (most of them at least). The DVDs include trailers (not sure if these films ran anywhere theatrically), and "Snow White" is the only one of the four that I currently own that is presented in a letterbox format (though not much of one). The Cannon Movie Tales are mostly family fun, though be warned that some can have their scary moments (for example, "Red Riding Hood," my favorite, is done as a werewolf story that at times may be a bit frightening). The other Cannon Movie Tales, all of which I highly recommend, are: Rumpelstiltskin, The Emperor's New Clothes, Red Riding Hood, Puss In Boots, Hansel and Gretel, Beauty and the Beast, The Frog Prince, and Sleeping Beauty. Those last two have not yet been released to DVD, and I have yet to see Rumpelstiltskin at any retail stores, though Amazon seems to carry it. I wish to get them all, but currently only own my favorites: Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Puss In Boots (starring Christopher Walken!), and Hansel and Gretel. Fairy tale fanatics should own all these films, and I also highly recommend my top favorites, the Disney animated versions. Also, for a scarier version of Snow White, pick up the outstanding, "Snow White: A Tale of Terror," starring the beautiful Monica Keena. More recommendations: Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre collection (also best known from the Disney Channel airings), Shrek and Shrek 2, The Slipper and the Rose (for a live-action Cinderella), Ever After (another live-action Cinderella), The Adventures of Pinocchio (1996), Peter Pan (2003), The Wizard of Oz, Return to Oz, and Rodger's and Hammerstein's Cinderella (1965) among others!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic of Mine Sept. 1 2005
By Stefanie - Published on Amazon.com
When I first saw this it was on the television. I was so entranced by it that the next time it was on I ran to my grandma and had her tape it off the tv. Over the next 12 years I watched it so much I actually wore out the original tape that we used. I was extremely excited to see that I could buy it on DVD. It definately is a show worth watching.

The music is wonderful, the acting is fun, and the story follows Snow White wonderfully.
