Scariest Moment – June Blog Challenge Day 29

It’s June 29th and this is the last entry from me, Odd-Days-Blog-Captain-Jen.

The scariest moment, and it seems without a doubt, is from the first full length animated film from Walt Disney: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. On January 13th, 1938, Snow began a five week premier at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

The children in the audience were so frightened by the sequence of Snow White lost in the forest that they wet their pants, and consequently the seats, at each and every showing of the film. Subsequently, at the end of the film’s initial engagement there, all the velvet seat upholstery had to be replaced.

Doesn’t get much scarier than that.
