During WWII, the Disney Company devoted much of its resources to producing propaganda for the US government. Whatever projects Disney had in the pipeline before the outbreak of war were either reduced down to package films like Saludos Amigos or shelved entirely. This meant that in 1945 Disney was left with a huge bunch of half-finished, partially-developed stories, and would spend the next few years trying to salvage and untangle them into something he could sell.
Peter Pan some time ago, I argued that the best way to enjoy the film was to regard it as "the Disney version" of the classic story, and that it was at least somewhat acceptable as an adaptation if it was entertaining in its own right. Disney has always looked to put its own stamp on any adaptation, sacrificing a perfect recreation of the source material in favour of its own brand of magic. Whether or not you like 'the Disney version' depends not just on the film but on your view of the company and its conventions - in this case, its tendency to misinterpret European fiction to achieve appeal with American audiences.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. We have a lot of time with the central character as he arrives in Sleepy Hollow, sets up home and gets to work. There is a lengthy dance number involving fairly complex choreography, though there's nothing as magical or funny as Dopey's drum solo. And there are a number of slightly spooky moments, from Brom Bones' ghost story to the Headless Horseman (more on him in a moment).
