Description: Before becoming a silent screen star, Marguerite Clark played Snow White on the stage, and Famous Players eventually had her do the screen version. It's the classic Grimm fairy tale, with a few additions (at one point Santa Claus makes an appearance!): The evil Queen (Dorothy G. Cumming) wants Snow White (Clark) dead when Prince Florimund (Creighton Hale) falls in love with her. Berthold the huntsman (Lionel Braham), her supposed killer, instead spirits her off to the forest where she finds the home of the seven dwarfs. The Queen, discovering the job hasn't been done, makes a couple of attempts to poison her, both of which are unsuccessful. The Prince gets Snow White, and the Queen's magic mirror is smashed, reducing her to the ugly hag she really was all along. Famous Players put a lot of effort into this production and released it Christmas week of 1916, but reviews were mixed. It took a couple of decades and an animated version by Walt Disney for the real charm of this fairy tale to reach the screen.~ Janiss Garza, All Movie Guide
