I hope I'm not the only one who doesn't remember similarities between
"Coriolanus" and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."  What are they?

Is it possible Dan Decker was thinking of "Cymbeline" or Pericles,
Prince of Tyre" - both of which feature bitter old women who send a
servant to kill a beautiful young woman?

All,

Terribly sorry, but when I meant to type "Cymbeline" as source material
for "Snow White" for reasons known only to my subconscious "Coriolanus"
came out.

Apropos of this thread, refer to Cymbeline for evidence of a Shakespeare
play directly morphing into other works.

But, unlike Will, Disney was able to copyright his excisions. Alas.
