Original animation cel from Disney's 1937 motion picture masterpiece "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Despite Hollywood snickering that "Snow White" would be "Disney's folly" and bankrupt his studio, the prescient animator forged ahead to create the first-ever fully animated feature film. Three years into its making, when resources ran dry, he had to secure emergency funding by showing a rough cut of the film to bank executives. When it finally premiered in December 1937, Disney silenced his critics through the audience's reaction, which gave the film a standing ovation and singularly ushered in the Golden Age of Animation. In this cel, Snow White communes with a little band of forest creatures who become her faithful allies as the story unfolds. This Courvoisier set-up cel is affixed to paperboard and matted, with "Snow White" inscribed in pencil to the outer mat. Printed slips affixed to verso read "Original Work From Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" and "This Material Inflammable / Handle With Care / Frame Under Glass / Copyright 1937 / Walt Disney Enterprises". Artwork measures 7" x 7.5", matted to an overall size of 9.5" x 11.75". Near fine.
