Trivia

In 2008, Composer Arik Rudich sued MGM for 1.9 million dollars, claiming that they ignored his copyright and failed to negotiate any royalties for the use of his score on the 2005 DVD. The case was dismissed in 2009 when Rudich and MGM failed to conduct a court-ordered settlement conference. See more »

marvelous version!
6 January 2003 | by christinedeslerSee all my reviews

This story most closely depicts the origional Grimm Farie Tale as we know it. It has the apple, the corsett, and the comb! It has the seven little men, it has snow white, it has the hunter, it has the father... it's only missing one SINGLE tiny thing... the fact that Snow White's MOTHER, and not her STEP mother, is the one that wanted her dead. Then again, that's EVERY version that I've ever seen... unless the Disney version was the right way there. Don't remember. Anyhow, my favorite part of the movie is "Billy Barty". He is in SO MANY of my movies, I can pick out his voice like THAT. *Snaps*. Sure, he's only one of 7 adorable men, but still... and a couple of the songs are so precious. Not the absolutely best of the Cannon Films, but one of my long time favs.
