Présentation de l'éditeur

The official celebratory book, published to coincide with the 75th anniversary of Walt Disney s first full-length animated movie. In 1934, Walt Disney set out to create the first-ever animation blockbuster. Many experts said it couldn t be done up to that point, animation meant funny cartoons and silly animals. The idea of a beautiful, engaging feature seemed impossible. Of course, Walt Disney pulled off the impossible, creating Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Oscar-winning movie that millions have come to know and love. This book, created in close collaboration with the Walt Disney Family Foundation, takes readers behind the scenes of this epic undertaking. Featuring never-before-published concept artwork and insider stories from the people who were there and who created the film, The Fairest One of All is a sumptuous tribute to a unique masterpiece. J.B. Kaufman is a film historian and a leading expert on Disney animation and the cinema of the era. He has authored three previous books on Disney, and gives talks and presentations on the subject.

LE livre sur Blanche Neige et les sept nains. On y apprend tous les secrets de fabrications du film, séquence par séquence. J. B. Kaufman a, de toute évidence, eu accès à toutes les archives Disney dont il a eu besoin pour écrire ce livre qui non seulement a appris à un passionné bien des faits nouveaux, mais a corrigé certaines légendes propagées par les spécialistes (et même par Disney à l'occasion). Par exemple, le rouge des joues de Blanche Neige n'est pas, et n'a jamais été du maquillage.
Seul bémol, il vous faudra lire anglais en attendant une traduction, ou vous contenter d'apprécier les nombreuses et magnifiques illustrations (pour beaucoup inédites) sur ce livre ou celui que le même auteur a sorti en même temps (et où on trouve plus d'images et moins de texte). Je me suis laissé dire qu'un ouvrage sur Pinocchio était en préparation.

HASH(0x8c1deb1c) étoiles sur 5 Stunning, Definitive History of a Classic 6 novembre 2012
Par Eric S. Richard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I received this stunner as a birthday present. Wow! I have been collecting books on the making of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" since 1987 and this is by far the best! It is elegant, from the cover to the end papers, to the tons of artwork and other photos included. Kaufman is a fantastic writer. His writing never feels forced or too flowery. The text flows smoothly throughout the comprehensive story. The book begins with the origins of the tale and continues to the present day. I was hoping for a list of credits and was overwhelmed when I saw credits for each section of the film! This is not only a lovely tribute to Walt Disney, his staff, and film making in general, it is also a gift to the film's legion of fans from generation to generation. It serves not only as the definitive history of the classic, but as an encyclopedia, an archive, an art book, and a thorough look back at a magical time in Hollywood. If you are a Disney fan, a Snow White fan, a fairy tale fan, a movie buff, or an avid reader, you can't go wrong here. Proudly display this in your library. I will treasure it forever.

Absolutely the most comprehensive book about the making of this land mark film.
This book is huge, not to mention heavy! There's plenty of original art.
Everything is notated and the book even dis spells some Snow White rumors that
even the Disney studio had passed on as fact. A very impressive book!

Once again J.B. Kaufman has given us a great definitive book on a Disney film. This time it's on Snow White. There have been a few books on the making of Snow White over the years, but this one is the most detailed and most comprehensive books ever. Kaufman goes above and beyond with detailing Walt Disneys interest in the story, the development of the film itself, the premiere, and it's lasting legacy. Of course there are plenty of production illustrations throughout.
An interesting section talks about how Walt wanted the color to be achieved. I this section are three frames that came from an original 1937 nitrate print, which shows that the cottage interiors were depicted as having a warm color temperature, unlike the DVD transfer today that seems to have taken that away. Walt wanted to avoid a "poster like" palette when making Snow White and the video releases have betrayed this intent. This is just one of the many interesting parts in this definitive book on Snow White.
Like all of Kaufman's books on Disney, there is a section in the back which includes the copyright information, release information, detailed production and technical credits. The educational wartime shorts featuring the dwarfs are also mentioned.

This book and it's companion piece is a must have for any Disney connoisseur.

Here's hoping for a book of this kind about Pinocchio.

HASH(0x8c1e103c) étoiles sur 5 Excellent History of the Most-Important Animated Film of All-Time 27 février 2013
Par Thad Komorowski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I met J.B. Kaufman in 2009 at the Buffalo International Film Festival, where he was a special guest promoting his newly released South of the Border. From meeting him personally and reading his work, he strikes me as someone with an earnest appreciation of the medium's history and one of the few able to communicate it through his writing. He told me that while he enjoyed learning everything he did and found South a rewarding experience, he was far more thrilled to start working on his new book about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

We should all share his enthusiasm. The Fairest One of All: The Making of Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is possibly the most welcome of all Disney Editions in recent years. With access to seemingly endless documentation, Kaufman was able to create a much-needed work: the go-to-book for the most written about and lauded animated feature.

Snow White was not one of my favorite Disney features growing up. Its clunkiness and overlong nature were too obvious, and I was swayed by the later features' slicker surfaces and broader comedy. Upon revisiting it several times on actual film, what resonated with me considerably more than the best acting scenes by Bill Tytla and Fred Moore was how convincingly the artists portrayed mood throughout the picture, specifically pure horror. All but a scant few pictures in this genre defy the classification of camp, but for a period of time Disney was able to get under people's skins and emotions like few other filmmakers.

There is a lingering problem in the text though, which I also noticed in South of the Border. Kaufman seems to be holding back, balancing positivity and negativity far too evenly. The "now it is bad, but there are some virtues" template is used far too often for any serious critical discourse to be established, probably exactly what Disney Legal had in mind. It also works in its disfavor when there clearly is a right answer, as with the far too wishy-washy coverage of the color and restoration issues with Snow White over the years. There clearly is a right way to see the film, and that is how Walt Disney delivered it to RKO in 1937. (A frame grab comparing a frame from an original 35mm nitrate to the modern DVD is below, exemplifying how the initial candlelight effect of the cottage interior has been eradicated over the years.) At the very least it should be released in that incarnation some way, let the naysayers say what they will.

Even under these conditions, Kaufman plants analyses successfully throughout the text, so that a less enlightened reader might be convinced that the animation in The Goddess of Spring is seriously bad, or that all of the Disney heroines from Cinderella on are unquestionably simpler in conception than Snow White. His fervor for the film is evident on every page. Even the seemingly most mundane aspects about the feature are brought to entertaining life. Kaufman's writing is not condescending, free of academia, and sympathetic to an accurate portrayal of an important period of Disney history.

Everything that went into making this film, be it the story meetings, the lectures from Walt, or the sheer labor in actually drawing the thing, makes for some of the most compelling writing on animation ever. Writers try to make the behind-the-scenes stories of other Disney films seem just as intriguing, but they almost never are, most likely because the hard part, actually making a watchable 80-minute cartoon feature, was already accomplished. Everything that followed after was just business as usual for the artists, thus most of the later films were never as compelling, and the studio was just fine with that. Yes, the "sincerity" remained there for awhile, but it had all but vanished by the turn of the war; certainly it's nonexistent in today's meaning of "Disney". Whether anyone will actually admit that is unlikely. But Kaufman's book is at least a reminder of the assets when sincerity in filmmaking is actually, well, sincere.

Snow White is 75! Had this autographed by the author in San Francisco at the Walt Disney Family Museum. The story behind the art work for the film is great and the art work included is great! It's an historical feature length animation that we love...
