For many years, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City held what was believed to have been the sole surviving 35MM nitrate print of this film, and continued to run it year after year without taking any steps to preserve it. After the inevitable and irreversible deterioration had advanced beyond the point of restoration, film historian William K. Everson succeeded in having a 16mm copy made, which is all that seems to survive today. See more »
Maybe I'm a bit biased towards this movie because my grandmother is Mary Christian, cast as Sally in this 1925 silent film. After getting the family together some years ago, we visited the Eastman Kodak Museum in Rochester, NY to have a viewing of "A Kiss for Cinderella". It was a touching and fun picture of a woman who dreams of a better life.
I'm not sure if many people even bother taking a look at silent movies anymore, but some of them can really hit home as this one did. Sadly, my grandmother was never in any more movies, but nostalgic pictures such as this can really take you back in time. If you can ever get your hands on it, take a look sometime.
