(#117) Willa: An American Snow White (Part 1 of 4)

A new version of the ancient "Snow White" story set in 1915 America. The jealous queen is Regina Worthington, an aging beauty whose stage career has soured. Snow White is her beautiful and talented stepchild, Willa. The cottage of the seven dwarves has been changed into a traveling medicine show run by a failed Shakespearean actor named Dr. Alfonzo and his two oddball companions—a flamboyant Irish Indian called Chief Tonka and a dancing dwarf named Billy Bugg. They sell "Chief Tonka's Elixir of Life," a highly alcoholic concoction that is supposed to reverse aging—among other reputed cures.
