Action picks up here with the evil queen’s brother Lord Maliss (drawn to resemble Basil Rathbone and voiced with gusto by Malcolm McDowell) in a vendetta to avenge sis’ death by zonking Snow White and her handsome Prince. Snowy takes refuge in the seven dwarfs’ cottage when the Prince is captured. The little fellows are away slaving in the mines, but their femme cousins, the seven dwarfelles, entertain Snowy with their fantastic control of natural phenomena.

Voice casting is pic’s big plus. Irene Cara warbles a catchy, uptempo song ‘Love Is the Reason’ to bookend the film. Three other songs spotlight ed Asner, Phyllis Diller and a very effective vocal from Tracey Ullman simulating a little girl’s voice.
