Poor Ella Cinders is much abused by her evil step-mother and step-sisters. When she wins a local beauty contest she jumps at the chance to get out of her dead-end life and go to Hollywood, where she is promised a job in the movies. When she arrives in Hollywood, she discoves that the contest was a scam and the job non-existant. But through pluck, luck, and talent, she makes it in the movies anyway, and finds true love.

The eye exercise scene in Ella Cinders was done by cutting a piece of black paper and taping one-half of the camera to it, so that one eye could be filmed making eye movements; the paper was then moved to the other half of the camera to film the other eye making its movements, so that the end result was both eyes going at different directions all at once.
