  • Snow White's House for Sale: Wishing Well on the Outside, Tiki Room Inside

    CurbedLA shows Snow White voice actress Adriana Caselotti's house in Larchmont Village for sale for $1.499 million. Lots of Snow White details throughout, and as Curbed states, the inside could be a Trader Vic's - or the Tiki Room. ) It seems like she really embraced -and lived - her role.

    The story is here.

    Ditto Peggy Lee, who successfully sued Disney over the VHS tape release of Lady and the Tramp.

    ORDDU: My sisters and I recall that Adriana sued the Disney company way back in the 30's or 40's for using her voice on recordings without getting her permission, first. We believe she won her case but it must have left a bad taste in Disney's mouth at the time. Still they were on good terms when they approached her many years later to have her record updated material for Snow White's Fantasyland dark ride. As a side note, Mary Costa (the voice of Princess Aurora) also sued the Disney company for not paying her royalties on the VHS tape release of Sleeping Beauty. She won her case, as well.

    I think it is a really cute house! I think it would be nice to have set up as a museum in some way...

    I am sad the only other role was in an uncredited role for the Wizard of Oz.

    My thoughts exactly! There's nothing proving that statement is accurate.

She was blacklisted by Disney after the film, as he did not want her to appear in any other films following Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs[citation needed]. Jack Benny specifically mentioned that he had asked Walt Disney for permission to use her on his radio show and was told, "I'm sorry, but that voice can't be used anywhere. I don't want to spoil the illusion of Snow White." She is considered a Disney Legend. The only other work she did following her premiere was an uncredited role in The Wizard of Oz, as the voice of Juliet during the Tin-Man's song, "If I Only had a Heart".
    She did, however, do a few promotional spots for Snow White, signing memorabilia. In 1973, she guest-starred on an episode of The Julie Andrews Hour saluting the music of Walt Disney, singing I'm Wishing with Julie Andrews. She also made a guest appearance on the syndicated Mike Douglas show. Later in her life, she sold autographs. She also made an attempt at an opera career. In the early 1990s, when the Snow White Grotto at Disneyland was refurbished, Caselotti re-recorded "I'm Wishing" for the Snow White Wishing Well at the age of 75.""


    Not much of a career if you ask me.

    Thanks for sharing this.
    The shower/bathroom is cool. I mean I like the stone shower (and I want to have a pebble bathroom when I own a home), but the rest of it... You get this sad vibe that being Snow White was the biggest thing to happen to her.... Kinda' sad.
