    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs RKO Pre-Release Flyers Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1937). This landmark film was first shown on 12/21/37 at one of the most famous movie palaces of the Golden Age of Hollywood, the Carthay Circle Theater at 6316 San Vicente Blvd. in Los Angeles. The film did not go nationwide until 2/4/38. Here are two extremely rare pre-wide release press flyers from Walt Disney Studios and their film distributors, RKO Radio Pictures. One is a 4-page press release flyer printed on an original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs studio letterhead. It's a letter composed by Ned. E. Depinet - Studio Vice President to "Dear Friend of the Best in Motion Pictures." It includes facts about the Snow White premiere; the back page is filled with rare quotes from industry reviewers. The second item is an RKO 4-page press flyer reporting two shows daily of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs beginning 12/21; the flyer was sent to theater managers around the country to "discuss terms for extended run engagements of the most anticipated attraction in history of show business," printed in impressive metallic silver ink. Both Disney Studio press documents are to promote the nationwide release. Minor handling and edge wear; overall Very Good condition.
