Walt Disney's Snow White premiered at the Carthay Circle Theater on December 21, 1937 and released to theaters by RKO Radio Pictures on February 4, 1938. The story was adapted by storyboard artists Dorothy Ann Blank, Richard Creedon, Merrill DeMaris, Otto Englander, Earl Hurd, Dick Rickard, Ted Sears and Webb Smith from the German fairy tale Snow White by the Brothers Grimm. David Hand was the supervising director, while William Cottrell, Wilfred Jackson, Larry Morey, Perce Pearce, and Ben Sharpsteen directed the film's individual sequences.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was one out of only two animated films to rank in the American Film Institute's list of the 100 greatest American films of all time in 1997 (the other being Fantasia) , ranking number 49. It achieved a higher ranking (#34) in the list's 2007 Update, this time being the only traditionally animated film on the list.
