    "The world you have entered was created by the Walt Disney Company & is dedicated to Hollywood - not a place on a map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream & wonder & imagine, a place where illusion & reality are fused by technological magic. We welcome you to a Hollywood that never was - and always will be."

    "I think there was always a gentle sweetness to Joe and his work. There's a gentility in everything he touched. But there's also a great sophistication. He was one of the truly great craftsmen of our art, but he always saw his craft as a way to communicate ideas."

    On its initial release Snow White brought in over $8.5 million an unbelievable feat when you consider that the average admission price at that time was 25 cents, and children, who made up the bulk of the audience, paid only a dime!
