Skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood and hair as black as ebony … sound familiar? Few have resisted the legendary story of Snow White and her seven dwarfs, and many have told their own versions of the tale. Here’s a look at the origin of the fairest of them all, who’s repeatedly captured Hollywood’s heart in recent years.
I have such a huge backlog of Snow White posts! This is one of them: a dynamic timeline published by the LA Times which takes you through incarnations and retellings of Snow White, mainly in entertainment, since published by the Grimm's in their Household Tales.
Unfortunately it's nowhere near comprehensive, though people who haven't followed the tale over the years may learn a few things. It jumps from 1812 to 1912 and the only "book" referenced is Bill Willingham's Fables.
Still it's fun to click through and take a look, though it's clearly missing a ton of published works and less popularly known films and series nods I would have like to have seen included.
