Snow White

Lucille La Verne The Queen ("Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs") As the evil queen, La Verne's malicious tones have scared the bejesus out of children for the last 61 years. Just the thought of Snow White's vain and evil stepmother asking the Magic Mirror: "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?" still sends chills up the spine. La Verne was also the artists' model for the old crone witch that the Queen transforms herself into in order to give Snow White the poisoned apple. La Verne had previously played old hags in "Orphans of the Storm" and "A Tale of Two Cities." She died in 1945 of cancer at the age of 72.Disney
