In case you missed it, Snow White turned 75 four months ago.

“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” premiered on Dec. 21, 1937.

During production, Hollywood referred to the film as “Disney’s Folly.”

Founder Walt Disney was forced to mortgage his home to finance the production, which was 10 times the budget of any of the studio’s previous short films.

But when celebrities Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, Judy Garland and Shirley Temple joined others at the premiere in giving the film a standing ovation, it was clear that Disney had created box-office magic.

In 2008, the American Film Institute named “Snow White” the greatest American animated film of all time.

What dream are you working on today that you can look back on years from now and say, “We did it!”?
