Snow White had just turned 50, but thanks, no doubt, to the Fairy Tale Diet and Make-up Guide, she still had that fairest-of-them-all glow. The occasion was the 50th anniversary of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and the diminutive septet, along with some 600 showbiz types and their kids, stopped by for a celebratory screening at Disney Studios. Max, 2, the son of Steven Spielberg and Amy Irving, got a grin from Dopey and a pat on the head from Snow. Chloe Brooks—2-year-old daughter of Terms of Endearment director James—took off in hot pursuit of "Mittey," who turned out to be Mickey Mouse, a friend of Snow's from their early days in the business together.

Mickey himself seemed most interested in actor Michael Tucker's daughter, Alison, 17, one of the older tykes in attendance. All in all it was a perfect Snow job. "We've been planning this for 50 years," said Disney exec Jeffrey Katzenberg. "I hope we got it right."
