Adriana Caselotti (May 16, 1916 - January 19, 1997) was an American actress and singer. She was the voice of Snow White in Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.


Early life

Her father Guido Caselotti, an immigrant from Italy, was a teacher of music and a vocal coach. Her mother, Maria Caselotti (from Naples), was a singer in the Royal Opera. Her older sister Louise gave voice lessons and sang opera.


In the mid-1930s, Adriana Caselotti was hired by Walt Disney to help cast parts in his new film. She was blacklisted by Disney after the film-he did not want her to appear in any other films following Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. 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." 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 appeared 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.


She was married four times. Adriana's first husband was Robert Chard, whom she married in 1945. The marriage ended in divorce. Adriana later met bit actor Norval Mitchell, whom she married in 1952. He retired after marrying her, but later died in 1972. The same year, she married Dr Dana Costigan, who later died. Her last husband was Florian St Pierre, who later divorced her.

Death and legacy

Eleven years before her death, Adriana was diagnosed with cancer in her left breast, which she eventually had removed. In 1996, she again developed cancer - this time, in her lungs. On January 19, 1997, Adriana Caselotti died at home of respiratory failure. She was 80 years old. Her body was cremated, and the ashes were scattered in the Pacific Ocean off Newport Beach.

Adriana was once quoted saying, "I know my voice will never die". Today, she has many surviving relatives ranging all over the country. The most well known, is the budding young actor Isaac Josephthal.

A character in the Disney movie Enchanted is named Mary Ilene Caselotti, in reference to Adriana Caselotti, Ilene Woods (the voice of Disney's Cinderella) and Mary Costa (the voice of Disney's Sleeping Beauty).
