I remember watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on a black and white TV as a child but I was curious to see how it would look on a Blu-ray disc. Given that this masterpiece of animation was a landmark in cinematic history, I wanted to see how well this story would hold up 72 years after it first aired.

From official release/information:
