Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

You've probably seen it 15 times by now, so why not make it 16? Walt Disney's 1937 film was the first feature-length cartoon; it was a tremendous risk and nearly bankrupted the studio (which necessitated some unfortunate cheaping out—the figures of Snow White and the prince are largely rotoscoped), but the rest, of course, is history. Though the film isn't as psychologically penetrating as some of Disney's later work, it retains the Freudian ferocity of the Grimm brothers fairy tale, as well as a fair measure of the scatological humor of the Disney shorts. David Hand was the supervising director, but Uncle Walt passed on every frame.
