    There was supposed to be a 7th dwarf named Horseflesh. He is even mentioned in the credits and dialougue (which says he died). But the producers feared the wrath of disney if they had 7 dwarves. Which is bizarre as Snow White and the 7 dwarves is a European tale dating back hundreds of years before disney. I would have never made that connection, but it shows that disney being bullies and jerks is not just a recent thing.

Disney has always been protective of their assets. Snow White will never escape being their first feature and the foundation upon which the company was built. Which isn't to say that others can't adapt the story, they can and have. But Disney certainly might have leaned on the theater chains to make it harder for them to get distributed. That's showbiz, for better or worse.
