The second of two Snow White promotional photo albums issued for the 1967 US theatrical re-release. (See the other album in previous post.) This one is labeled "Production Scenes". The spine is secured with a folding metal clasp. Photos are glued to paper pages, which also include text descriptions. Twenty eight photos total. Distributed by Buena Vista.

All the production scenes are copyrighted 1967, except this one below which has a 1963 marking.

Bashful is mislabeled as Grumpy and said to be convinced by animals to wash. Instead, this is a still from the finale!

Red "Disney Classics" Dairy Glass

This vintage Snow White glass tumbler was probably a dairy give-away premium. Snow stands in the center with dwarf heads on either side. Red graphics. Marked "© 1938 W.D. Ent." Measures approximately 4.75" tall x 2.75" across.

According to the 1993 Tomart's Price Guide to Character & Promotional Glasses, this Snow White tumbler was apparently part of a rare dairy premium series called Disney Classics. The total number of glasses in the collection is unknown. Tomart dates the series to 1940-41, probably because it included a Pinocchio glass. Pinocchio, of course, didn't premiere until 1940. However, since the Snow White glass is marked "W.D. Ent. 1938", it clearly was released at an earlier date.
