This beautiful, all original Snow White doll was produced by Madame Alexander in 1937 to coincide with the release of the Walt Disney film. 

The landmark film was the top-grossing box office draw ever until “Gone with the Wind” broke its record in the 1939/40 season.  Not bad, considering Disney’s wife, Lillian, had told him years before that “No one’s ever going to pay a dime to see a dwarf picture.”

“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” was the inspiration for MGM to produce its own fantasy picture, “The Wizard of Oz” and paved the way for countless full-length animated films afterwards.

It’s amazing to ponder the domino effect this one film produced!  And, think of all of the wonderful toys that would’ve never been had it not been made!

This sweet doll is currently for sale on Ebay.  Check out the link to my auctions at the top!
