    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Deleted "Soap Scene" Rough Drawings Group of 29 (Walt Disney, 1937). Here's a rare look at a historic "lost" scene from this classic film. When Snow White tells the Dwarfs to wash up for dinner, they proceed to head off to clean up. Dopey is told to get the soap as the others forcibly wash an uncooperative Grumpy; Dopey grabs the soap which slips out of his hands, hits Doc and bounces back into his mouth. We see the bubbles, but we never see the soap come out. Here is that deleted sequence, with 29 rough drawings showing the dwarfs surrounding Dopey to make him cough up the bar of soap he accidentally swallowed. There are two drawings that explicitly show the bar of soap coming out of Dopey's mouth, both fairly detailed, and several others leading up to this (six solo Dopey drawings in all); of the other drawings, three show Happy running and the rest are of the dwarfs gathering around Dopey. Very rare set of graphite drawings on trimmed 16 field 5-peghole paper. For some reason, the paper has been cut down to 15" x 10". An historic bit of animation history! Minor handling and edge wear but Very Good overall condition. From the Cecil Beard Estate.
