Interview with Snow White

Have you ever seen that amazing animated feature film, "Snow White”? I wanted to interview the lovely heroine but we just could not seem to connect. Either she was cavorting with her Handsome Prince or visiting her Seven Dwarf buddies.

But you know how persistent I can be, so finally after exchanging numerous f-mails we met at Ye Olde Tea Shoppe. I can hear you asking, “What are f-mails?” No, they are not scatological messages. The ‘f’ stands for Fairy Tale.

Are you doubting my veracity? Then you must not be aware of my super-special, supernatural ability to interview not only infamous, although now dead, celebrities like Cleopatra, but also weird animals and even psychic vegetables. But that’s another story, I mean, hub.

me – I want to thank you, Your Highness, Princess Snow White, for granting me this interview.

Snow White – No problem, I love talking . . . about myself. And you can call me Snow.

me – Thank you. I can’t help but wonder, are you living happily ever after?

Snow – What are you drinking? Are you living in a fairy tale? Have you forgotten my story?

me – Not really, but I would love to hear your version.

Early Years

Snow – Do you know how I got my name? (Keeps talking). Once upon a time – that’s how all our stories began in those days – my beautiful and kind mother, the Queen, sat sewing by her window. It was winter and there was snow on the ground. As she sewed, she pricked her finger with the needle and three drops of blood fell upon the snow.

She said to herself: “I wish I had a daughter with skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood and hair as black as this ebony window frame.” Then I was born. Thank God she chose the name, Snow White! Imagine me as Blood Red or Black Hair. Not!

My mother died when I was young. My father, the King, remarried and my stepmother was very beautiful on the outside but very evil on the inside. She was civil to me while my father was alive but he died when I was a teenager and she became the stepmother from Hell.

me – I remember reading about her Magic Mirror. Was she really such a narcissist?

Snow – She was constantly checking out her appearance and talking to the mirror. Saying nonsense like, “Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who is the fairest of them all?” And the mirror would always answer, “Why you are, my Queen. You are the fairest of them all.”

me – The mirror could talk?

Snow – Of course, doesn’t yours?

me – Yes, in a manner of speaking. But since I am older than soil, I try not to pay attention.

Back to you. Why did your stepmother become so evil and mean as you grew up?

Snow – She was jealous of me with my snow white skin, raven black hair, rosy red lips, perfect features, and voluptuous body. I was the Angelina Jolie / Megan Fox of that era.

me – How do you know the names of those movie stars?

Snow – We do not live in a vacuum in our kingdom, you know, we have Giggle.

me – You mean Google?

Snow – Whatever! Our castle was next to a beautiful forest and I made friends with all the gentle wild creatures that lived there – deer, rabbits, birds, moles, dust bunnies . . .

me – Dust bunnies?

Snow – I just threw that in to see if you were paying attention. I never saw a dust bunny in my life. We had dozens of servants to clean and cook and pamper us. I was lonely though with no BFFs.

As I grew to womanhood – that’s another phrase used back in the day – I dreamed of a handsome prince who would come riding up in a cool, white Exelero, rescue me, and take me off to his castle to be his wife. That was my fave wicked daydream.

me – Wicked?

Snow – You know . . . wicked! – cool!

me – I’m surprised that you use so many words and phrases popular with young people today. How did you learn them?

Snow – You forgot! Giggle! (She giggles).

The plot thickens

me – What made your cruel stepmother finally decide to be rid of you?

Snow – As I became more beautiful each day – it’s not bragging when it’s true, right? – my stepmother became more envious. She was still talking to her mirror, but one fateful day the mirror responded, You, my queen, are fair; it is true. But Little Snow-White is freakin’ awesome.”

me – Freakin’ awesome?

Snow – Just kidding. The mirror said, “Little Snow White is a thousand times fairer than you.” You can just imagine – how shall I put this? – at that moment the fecal matter hit the device that produces a current of air.

The queen became consumed by jealousy which gave her no peace. She summoned her faithful huntsman and gave him his marching orders: “Take Snow White to a remote spot in the woods and kill her. As proof of her death, bring her lungs and liver back to me for my dinner.” My stepmother was a piece of work.

me – Understatement of the year. What happened next?

Snow – The huntsman had been my friend and could not commit such a dastardly deed. I began to cry and that touched his heart. He took pity on me believing that wild animals would soon do his job for him. I promised to run deeper into the woods and never return. I may be unbelievably beautiful but I am not a knob!

me – A knob?

Snow – You know, a knob, an idiot. I learned much later that the huntsman killed a boar and brought its lungs and liver to my stepmother as proof of my death.

me – What a ghastly experience for you?

Snow – Ya think? I was devastated, alone, afraid and frightened to death. I ran through that forest all day until sundown to get far, far away from my evil stepmother. Just as it began to get dark I stumbled across a little house in the middle of the woods.

Roomy bed - Yes! Privacy - Not!
Roomy bed - Yes! Privacy - Not!

The Seven Dwarfs

Snow – I guess I should be more PC – Politically Correct – to call them little people but in those days they were known as dwarfs. The little house was owned by seven dwarfs who worked in a mine all day. Their door was open and no one was home.

me – How did you know that seven dwarfs lived in the house?

Snow – Duh? Everything was very small – a little table, seven little chairs, seven little settings of tableware, and seven little beds. I was very hungry and thirsty, so I ate a little bread and then I just wanted to lie down and go to sleep.

I tried each of the seven little beds and when I reached the seventh one, I lay down in it and instantly fell asleep – even though my legs hung over the end of the too short bed.

me – That part of your story sounds remarkably familiar like ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears.’

Snow – Sorry. Never heard of those bozos. Must have been before my time.

me – Were the Seven Dwarfs upset to find you in their house when they returned home?

SnowAu contraire! They seemed pleased to have me as their new roommate. I explained how my stepmother, the queen, had tried to kill me, how the huntsman spared my life, and how I had run through the forest the entire day to find refuge. They even built me a queen-sized bed – very appropriate, doncha think?

me – How generous of them.

Snow – Not entirely. They drew up a contract whereby I agreed to be an unpaid housekeeper who would cook and bake, sew, mend, make the beds, wash and iron the clothing, and keep everything clean and orderly. In return I would have free room and board and their protection.

They warned me that they spent each day digging in the mine so I would be all alone. I must watch out for the queen, and not let anyone into the house.

The Queen’s Plots

Snow – I later learned – this is all hearsay, you know – that my evil stepmother believed she was again the most beautiful woman in the land, but when she asked her magic mirror that fateful question, it responded: “You my queen are fair, it is true. But Little Snow-White beyond the seven mountains is a thousand times fairer than you.”

The queen knew that only the Seven Dwarfs lived in the Seven Mountains so they must have rescued me. She disguised herself as an ancient crone – similar to your avatar, drbj – and traveled to the dwarfs’ house. She pretended to be an old peddler selling silk bodice laces.

me – Tell me you did not let her in.

Snow – I couldn’t help myself. The bodice laces she was selling were beautiful shades of red, blue and yellow silk. I’m such a fashionista I could not resist them. I invited her in and she laced up my bodice for me.

She pulled the laces so tight (remember Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara in “Gone With the Wind”?) that I lost my breath and fell to the floor as if dead. The Queen thought I had perished and quickly left.

me – How did you survive?

Snow – Fortunately, my dear dwarfs were working a short mine shaft shift – try saying that quickly – found me in time, and quickly cut the bodice laces so I could breathe again. Once again they warned me not to let anyone in the house when they were at work.

Back at the ranch, the queen again queried her mirror and the mirror answered: “You, my queen, are fair; it is true. But Little Snow-White with the seven dwarfs is a thousand times fairer than you.”

me – She must have become apoplectic.

Snow – She was radically mad. But she tried to kill me again. This time she wore a different disguise – she resembled a female Al Pacino off his meds. She tried to sell me a jeweled comb that she had poisoned. I didn’t recognize her and foolishly let her in. I’m a fool for bling.

She insisted on pinning up my hair with the poisoned comb and once again I fainted and fell flat on the floor. She left thinking I was dead for real. Fortunately, my roommates came home just in time and pulled that potentially poisonous comb from my hair. Once again I promised them not to let anyone into the house. This time I meant it.

me – Did the Magic Mirror give the queen that "You are no longer the fairest" message again?

Snow – Of course, and I heard she became so un-hinged she concocted a poisonous apple and vowed, "Snow-White will die, if it costs me my life!" Once more she disguised herself as a repulsive-looking, ugly wretch of a witch and came to the dwarfs' house.

me – I hope you learned a lesson and did not let her in.

Snow – A house does not have to fall on me. I told her I was not allowed to let anyone in while the dwarfs were not home.

me – What was she selling this time?

Snow – She had a beautiful, large red shiny apple in her hand but I told her I was forbidden to accept anything from anyone I did not know. She said she understood and would cut this beautiful apple in half and eat half of it with me.

I did not realize she had poisoned only the half of apple she gave to me. My desire for it grew stronger and I took the half of apple she offered me through the window.

me – What happened?

Snow – I died. At least I looked like I had died. I was in a deep coma. When the dwarfs came home they could not awaken me. They would have buried me but they saw I just looked like I was asleep and not dead. So they built a magnificent glass coffin and laid me inside so they could continue to gaze at me.

I still had my beautiful white skin, black glossy hair and rosy cheeks and lips. They inscribed my name and ancestry in gold letters on the coffin and one of the dwarfs always stayed at home to watch over me.

Disneyology

Did you know that in 1937 the media insisted that Walt Disney, the creator of Mickey Mouse, was out of his mind to have invested three years and $1,500,000 to create an animated film about a fairy tale that every child knows.

They called "Snow White" Disney's Folly and insisted that no adult would want to watch a cartoon for 90 minutes.

But Walt thrived on risk. The film earned more than $8,500,000 in depression-era dollars. Disney knew how to move the story forward in a believable way to keep adults hooked, and at the same time provide enough comedy and music in the form of the dwarfs to keep the kids happy.

And the music has stood the test of time. We still remember "Whistle While You Work" and "Some Day My Prince Will Come" with fondness.

Disney received one full sized Oscar (Academy Award) and seven miniature awards for "Snow White."

The Handsome Prince

me – When does your handsome young prince enter the picture?

Snow – I thought you would never ask. My prince came to the dwarfs’ house for shelter and saw me lying there in a glass coffin in their parlor illuminated by seven little candles. He fell in love with me at first sight.

He told the Seven Dwarfs that he could not live without me and would keep and honor me as his most cherished possession on earth. The dwarfs realized the prince loved me deeply and gave him the glass coffin – and me.

me – What a sad love story.

Snow – Wait, there is a happy ending. The prince was so infatuated with dead-like me, he had his servants carry the coffin to and fro so I was always with him wherever he was in his large castle.

One day, one of the servants who had been doing most of the heavy lifting and carrying became angry, opened my coffin, lifted me upright and said, "We are plagued the whole day long every day because of you, Snow $#*!," and he hit me very hard square in the back with his fist.

me – I thought you said there is a happy ending.

Snow – There is. The large chunk of apple I had swallowed flew out of my throat and I came instantly back to life. The servant unknowingly had performed the Heimlich maneuver and revived me.

My handsome prince was beside himself with happiness and we made plans to marry the next day. I even invited my evil stepmother but she had died from a stroke when her mirror told her once more she was NOT the fairest.

me – You know, Snow, this is a lovely story but it is very different from the story in the film, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” that Walt Disney produced in 1937. In that film, you meet your Super Prince before you meet the dwarfs, and he awakens you at the end of the film with a kiss.

Snow – I know. Isn’t that romantic? The story I have related to you is from a very old German fairy tale written by the Brothers Grimm. The evil queen in their original story was not my stepmother but my mother. That part was rewritten for the kiddies. And the dwarfs had different names: Blick, the eldest, then Flick, Glick, Snick, Plick, Whick and Quee who was a budding kleptomaniac. But the overall plot is similar.

me – I adored the dwarfs in the Disney version: Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, and Dopey. Each one had a very different but fascinating persona.

Snow – Perhaps one day you will interview and psychoanalyze them (LOL).

me – Could be so, Snow. Stranger interviews have happened. Thank you for the interview and the WOW – Words of Wisdom.

Guess what? Two production companies have decided, almost simultaneously, to remake "Snow White" as a feature film. Not an animated movie but with real actors.

Relativity Media finished filming “Mirror Mirror,” directed by Tarsem Singh and set for release on March 16, 2012. It stars Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen, Lily Collins as Snow White, Armie Hammer as the Prince, and Nathan Lane as Brighton, the Queen's major domo.

Oh my, YOU can make me laugh! “But since I am older than soil, I try not to pay attention (to my talking mirror)....” I am practicing this since I was a spring chicken. I have the most evil mirror, looking very much like the Queen as Wicked. And OMW, I almost cracked in two when I read: "We are plagued the whole day long every day because of you, Snow $#*!,"

Hahaha!

Megan and Angelina - not to talk about Snow - are breathtaking beautiful. Those lips..... mmmm, if I was not as straight as a ruler of iron.... (Guess who likes kissing?)

Until the age of 12 I looked just like Snow-White in my imagination and my imaginary twin sister looked like Goldilocks. We talked the hind legs off many donkeys.

Your incorporation of Teenish into English deserves a wink. The music videos and pictures and everything you have put in here are absolutely fabulous.

Can’t wait to watch “Mirror Mirror” not to talk about “Snow White and the Huntsman” with the awesome South African actress, Charlize Theron, in the role of the stepmother.

You, drbj, are freakin’ awesome. Thanks for being the Greatest Entertainer in Hubland.

Hey Doc, me thinks you hide under the guise of a playwright in the making. Dam you are good. I loved every morsel of this beautifully funny story. All the characters you placed in proper order along with exciting video trailers of upcoming great movies.

How did you know, Audrey? I did enjoy writing this hub because there was so much material - funny material - to draw from. I had the giggles - not Googles - while writing it.

I do appreciate your saving my stories to read to your grandkids. My grandkids are too old to read to - they can read for themselves. And my great grandkids are too young - they can't even read.

I will take your Beethoven request under advisement. That means maybe I will and maybe I won't. And thanks for the awesome. :)

Hi, christopher. Thanks for stopping by and the 'excellent.' I, too, am looking forward to the two new films. I think the one with Charlize Theron will be the darker version since I read that the Huntsman trains Snow White to fight. Interesting tactic.

These two movies may be the first movies to employ a number of little people since the 'Wizard of Oz.'

Thanks for quoting some of mt fave lines about my own mirror and 'Snow $#*!'.

I used Megan and Angie as illustrations since they are so beautiful and remind me of Snow with their rosy red lips and other, er ... endowments. I, too, am looking forward to the two new Snow White films. Charlize is a favorite of mine - you have that same 'come hither' look you know with your new profile pic.

I am so glad that Walt Disney took the risk he did in moving the story forward. Yes. It is still a favorite of both adults and chilluns'! Giggles! Ha ha ha!!

I wasn't aware of the two movies coming out, so this is an added bonus. I will certainly go to see them. Kudos on another fun-filled, enjoyable interview!

'Awesomely delightful?' I do like the way you turn a phrase, Alastar, and I'm delighted that this one of your fave interiews so far. Yes, Snow didn't let any grass grow under her feet with her ability to 'Giggle' and learn teen-speak.

I know her story was a bit grim but I report the facts, just the facts. (Laughing). Thank you for your 'wicked' comments my friend. No, I have not yet met Bambi but you might enjoy "Interview with Hippopotamus." Jessica the hippo, despite her size, had a similar winning personality.

What a lovely scenario, Vincent. I can think of no greater pleasure than to 'watch Disney and other films' with you and listen, in person, to your imaginative interpretations.

drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

You are correct, Lynda, it was a kiss from the Handsome Prince that woke Snow White in the Disney film version. In the Grimm brothers story, the courier carrying her coffin tripped and Snow coughed up the errant apple chunk. The Heimlich maneuver was my small contribution.

So happy I could set the record straight.

Dear DJ ~ Did you here the click-click-click-click across the board as I gave you all thumbs up for this original but classic tale of intrigue and romance? You timed all the videos just perfectly along with the story line. The humor and dialogue get rave reviews and then the final finish of videos! Well, if this doesn't get Hub of the Day Award nothing should. Blessings, Debby

This was such a fun hub. I absolutely loved the interview with Snow White.... now what about Cinderella (we all know how many stories have been spun off that) and maybe even Areil and the likes of all the princess. I am a huge disney fan if you haven't noticed. And I love how you tied Grimm into this. I have yet to read the Grim Fairy Tales but I really want to... might need to put that on the list of books to get! Great hub!

Doc BJ,

I haven't ever been a fan of Disney's Snow White. It was just too .... tooo .... too gay (I don't mean that in a rude sense), and the story kept stopping to make room for singing! I HATE it when they do that. I'm anxiously wanting to move on to the next chapter, and Disney's peeps always start with the singing and dancing and ... oh gosh, it all becomes terribly frustrating.

I enjoyed reading your interview with the Bling Queen MUCH better!

When it comes to the Brothers Grimm version vs. Mr. Disney, although Mr. Disney is much loved and brilliant, I'm still gonna pick the Grimms' version.

They're just the right sort of spicy and they don't cram a bunch of music and lyrics into their story ... they just get on with it. :)

What a nice thing to say, b. You 'hated for the interview to end.' Funny, Snow White said the same thing. Heh, heh. You suggested this could be a NEW movie version. Something to think about, my dear. Wanna be the screenplay co-author?

Thank you, Will, but a bow is not necessary. A cash donation will suffice. Thanks for the kind title and the gracious words. You are so right. The Heimlich! Who knew?

Dear Debbie, Yes, m'dear, I did hear the clicks. Thank you for all those thumbs up and exceptional comments - all true, of course. Thanks also for noticing the juxtaposition (seldom get a chance to use that word) of the song videos with the text.

Hub of the Day, you say? That's always nice. But even nicer are the remarks and comments from sweet readers like yourself. Blessings backatcha, m'luv.

Hi, Stacy, thank you for loving this Snow interview. I have yet to locate Cinderella for an interview. She is constantly traveling on vacation (much like our esteemed Leader). But I shall persist - no mountain is high enough, no valley deep enough .... well, you get the message.

Me, too, I adore everything Disney ever produced from Mickey Mouse (see my Interview) to Fantasia (did you ever view that remarkable film?) to Snow.

The Grimm Brothers were prolific creators of fairy tales that I believe you would enjoy reading. Go for it, tiger.

Hi, Angelia, Of course Disney's Snow White film had to pause with the story-telling to make room for the songs. Residuals, my dear. But you have to admit those songs have endured (since the 30s) and the animals and the Dwarfs were adorable. No?

Thank you for enjoying the Bling Queen repartee - love that appellation. The Grimm Brothers version of Snow White was much more, how shall I say it - grim! No songs, no dancing, no merriment in the forest.

P.S. If you are fond of grim, you might like to read my "Interview with Jack the Ripper." Heh, heh.

Nice to meet you, tammy. I would be honored to have you link this to your Disney hub. Just email me the title and I will return the favor, m'dear.

...well you certainly deserve 800 plus followers - I would say they are the 803 luckiest followers on Hubpages

and I am lucky to be able to always post your legendary interview series to my Facebook page with a direct link back here - and this is one of your best - yet - I really miss HELLO HELLO - apparently she was banned for poor grammar and spelling - good grief - I've been sending her private e-mails to lend her my moral support - she misses everyone - she misses her hub - this is so sad

but in closing always a celebration to be here with you my friend - and your comments to me are also legendary as only you can do ....

Hi, Colin. You don't do too badly in the follower department yourself, my friend. I consider myself the lucky one to have such constant, faithful followers. Like you, my dear.

You already know how much I appreciate your sharing my "Interviews" on FB, and allowing me to post those flippant comments on your 'legendary' hubs.

I regret Hanna's departure and will try again to contact her. Stay happy and keep warm, m'dear.

Snow asked me to tell you, Epi, that she is thrilled about her reception on your FB page and says thanks from the bottom of her heart. Also the top and the middle.


femmeflashpoint 4 years ago

Doc,

You're right. I will have to read your interview with Jack the Ripper.

I've been behind with my hub-hopping of late. But, as soon as I can get three assignments finished up and put behind me, I'll be back in the swing of things.

However, I will certainly be fitting in you and Mr. Ripper while I warm up with a cup of coffee here shortly.

Wish you could have been along today. I made my annual trek to the Fort Worth Stock Show. I came home with more silver bling than even Snow White's got in her jewelry box, lol.

I'm ALMOST feeling guilty over it, but I'll save it for later. (Grin!)

If you'd been along, you could have done an interview with Bessie, the Borden cow, and Beauregard her calf. (I think all of her calves are named that so they don't have to repaint it on the pen every year.) He was adoreable! And, the Lady Bessy was shined up from horns to hooves!

Welcome back, Angelia. You mean to say that you let your work interfere with Hub-hopping? Tsk, tsk. (Note: Haven't had a chance to use that ancient phrase for 50 years!)

So you purchased scads of silver bling at the Ft. Worth Stock Show? Had no idea they were selling such in addition to the cows. Then again, not so surprising. Cows are of the female persuasion.

You mentioned Bessie the Borden Cow. Is this Elsie's daughter? Just wonderin'. Thanks for the suggestion. She would make a wunnerful interviewee. Will ponder the possibility. And oh, yes, I told Jack you would be dropping by. Thank you, m'dear.

Delighted you enjoyed the interview. Dolores. I REALLY enjoyed writing it. Know what you mean about something else always having priority. Yes, the second film with Charlize looks tempting. I like anything Theron does. Did you ever see her in "Monster?" She was exceptional!

So you're a sucker for monsters, my dear. Do pray that does not extend to your personal life.

It's nice to meet you, Chaz. Thank you for enjoying this interview with Snow. Funny and interesting are two of my favorite hub descriptions. And thanks for loving her up-to-date language. She's even thinking of getting a FB page.

Now go forth and read "Interview with Seven Dwarfs" and let me know what you think, m'dear.

I love snow white. She was my favorite "protagonist" cartoon character. "mirror..mirror..on the wall, who is the most beautiful princess in the world?" the answer is you (my fellow hubber, drbj). You are the real "snow white". My friend, this hub so unique. You have strong talent in making such of beautiful hub like this one. I love all the interviews, stunning pictures and the video as well. Especially, "Snow White and the Huntsman" movie thriller. I can't wait to rent this movie.

Thank you very much for share with us. Rated up (useful, funny, awesome, beautiful and interesting). You got them all. Have a nice weekend!

Love and peace,

Oh, pras, you say the nicest things. All true of course! Heh, heh. How I love to read your comments. You never fail to stroke my ego. I'm delighted that Snow White was/is your favorite cartoon character and that you loved the videos, pictures, etc.

Me, too. I am looking forward to those two new Snow White movies coming soon. Thank you and bless you, my friend, for pushing all the buttons. And don't forget to stop by "Interview with the Seven Dwarfs." You know how jealous they can be without attention. :)

I cannot believe it took me so long to find you! Your writing is so engaging and entertaining. I laughed at how Snow White described getting her name, her statement of being such a fashionista, her explanation of her dear dwarfs working a short mine shaft shift, her description of the Queen's last disguise which resembled a female Al Pacino off his meds and how she really came back to life through an angry servant who hit her and unknowingly performed the Heimlich maneuver dislodging the apple.

You are one gifted and funny writer! Enjoyed immensely!

Voted Up and Funny.

Delighted you persevered and found me, Mekenzie, and look forward to your sublime and outstanding comments. So positive. So ingratiating. So true!

You are very gifted and funny, too, m'dear. Particularly since you took the time and trouble to mention some of the very same writings that tickled me, too. Thank you for your lovely and lovable comments and the funny and the Up.

Just saw Snow White and the Huntsman, DRBJ, so had to see what treatment you gave her story. I must say, you give poor Snow a much easier time of it! Too funny -- and I mean that literally, because my mirror has begun to tell me disturbing things too. :-0 Up and funny!


drbj profile image

drbj 4 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Molly. The film, 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' might be thrilling for adults but the kiddies would be scared out of their training pants. The evil Queen, Charlize Theron, is gorgeous and the Huntsman, Chris Hemsworth, is also gorgeous. But this adult version of the fairy tale classic may be scary for children. Better to have them view the Walt Disney animated version.

So your mirror sometimes tells you disturbing things? What a coincidence, I must have the same brand of mirror. Thanks for the visit and the lovely comments, m'dear.

Another great interview! Of course back in the late 3os and early 40s Snow White was every little girl's heroine! It is good to point out, as some may not know, that Disney's film is an adaptation and doesn't necessarily follow the original fairy tale. I always thought Snow White and Rose Red were the same but looking up facts you mentioned found out there were two fairy tales, one Snow White and Rose Red, and one just Snow White.

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

drbj 3 years ago from south Florida Author

Hi, Mary. How gracious of you to come all this way to meet Snow White in person. Yes, Walt Disney's remarkable movie was a much kinder adaption of Grimm's grim fairy tale. Thank you for the kind comments and the Up. As a reward, to have a few laughs, take a look at my interview with the Seven Dwarfs.

I don't know how I missed this post but it was written about the time I joined HP. Anyway, I have to check out Mirror Mirror. I love Snow White and the Huntsman! Meagan Fox would make the perfect Snow White with her beauty and fair skin. You have brought new life to this fairy tale with your creative writing.

drbj 3 years ago from south Florida Author

Thank you, Dianna, for finding Snow White and your gracious comments. You would probably enjoy both films: Mirror, Mirror had more comic moments, while Snow White and the Huntsman was a little more Gothic. I agree, Megan Fox would have been perfect as Snow White.
