As the Disney studio enters 1936, the story department is continuing the development of the Snow White’s Entertainment Sequence.
I don’t want to recap the whole document because it’s a primary source and speaks for itself, but I’ll say it again, I’m amazed at the ability of Walt and his employees to dig deep and question everything about the story with the intent on making it more perfect. I wonder how many people today have this ability of excessive attention capacity.
There were 17 songs written for the movie that were not used, and this document contains one of them: YOU’RE NEVER TOO OLD TO BE YOUNG.
In this particular meeting, they plus-ed a gag from only one dwarf dancing with Snow White while standing on a table to reach up to her height, to one dwarf standing on another — this plus-ing casually develops toward the end of the meeting.
While not story, I thought Walt made an interesting comment about designing the entertainment room (concern was a new room would make the cottage look too big):
“WALT: (explains f.g. [fore-ground] posts or props take away that feeling) – overlays and props take away the feeling of size. That is why we also made props thicker – doors, tables, etc. Snow White is the only thing you can contrast with.”
