Cute early adaptation
16 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm with user planktonrules on this short: this is a charming early film rendition of the Cinderella story with pleasing costumes, special effects, and locales.

The main attraction is Florence La Badie as the titular character, whose classic beauty and pluckiness make her stand out from the rest of the cast. It's a shame her film career would be cut short by a fatal car accident six years afterward. Like the ill-fated starlets Martha Mansfield and Olive Thomas after her, early cinema geeks are left wondering what could have been.

One thing I loved was how few inter titles were used. Unless you're from another planet, you're likely to be familiar with the Cinderella story, especially the Perrault variation, which is what the filmmakers based their version off of. Extra titles would have felt unnecessary, at least in my opinion.

Overall, this 1911 Cinderella is good stuff and worthy viewing for the student or fan of early film.
