Snow White is a 1916 American silent romantic fantasy film directed by J. Searle Dawley. It was adapted by Winthrop Ames from his own 1912 Broadway play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which was in turn adapted from the 1812 fairy tale (as collected by the Grimm brothers). The film stars Marguerite Clark and Creighton Hale, Clark reprising her stage role.

Formerly thought to have been destroyed in a vault fire and presumed lost, a "substantially complete" print with Dutch intertitles, missing a few scenes, was found in Amsterdam in 1992 and restored at George Eastman House.
Snow White is included in the boxed DVD set Treasures from American Film Archives: 50 Preserved Films (2000).
