SNOW ON SATURDAYS: Images of Miss White & Co


Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: one of a series of Disney film-poster re-designed with a minimalist interpretation by freelance graphic designer, Rowan Stocks-Moore.

You can view all Rowan's re-designs here.

And you can also order numbered prints priced at £12.96 GBP. I'm certainly thinking of ordering a couple – if only so as to be able to sing: "Some day my prints will come..."

PASS MARKS

Thirty years ago TODAY, I paid my first-ever visit to the Walt Disney Studio in Burbank, California.



The Mouse on the front, the Cheshire Cat on the back!

What pleasure I got from a small piece of card and – guess what? – somehow, on leaving the studio at the end of an unforgettable day that, for a rabid Disney geek, was a dream come true, I inadvertently managed not to follow the instruction printed in bold!

Curious how such trifling things are often a 'pass' to treasured memories!

However, I have to say, a later pass (2001) isn't quite so evocative...

THE DISNEY ANGLE

in 1958, an article was published in The Wall Street Journal exploring the financial workings of the Walt Disney Company in which its business philosophy was summarised as: 'Dream, diversify – and never miss an angle'.

That quote inspired a radio programme, Never Miss An Angle, that I made in 2001 to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Walt Disney which is being repeated this evening on BBC Radio 2.



After tonight's broadcast, Never Miss An Angle can be caught up with via BBC iPlayer for the next seven days.
