Storyline

In a small pleasant European village, there is one unhappy person: Ella. She is despised by everyone, and mistreated by her step-mother and step-sisters. Out feeling miserable one day, Ella meets a handsome young man, who falls for her. He is really Prince Charles, the son of the Duke, but he tells her he is the son of the cook, and invites her to a great ball at the Duke's castle. A strange woman who lives in the mountains by herself befriends Ella, and dresses her up so she can attend the ball. She goes, and is a great success, but must run out at midnight. In her haste, she drops a single glass slipper. The Prince uses the slipper to find her. Written by John Oswalt <jao@jao.com>

Quotes

Mrs. Toquet: What's your name?
Ella: Elle, but they won't even call me by name! They call me, Edwin and Willy and the others, because of the ashes they call me Cinderella.
Mrs. Toquet: Cinderella... Cin-der-el-la. Such a beautiful word, I like it very much. There are other words I like very much, like windowsill and elbow. El-bow. And I like Apple Dumpling too. Apple dumpling, it's a comical word. Apple Dumpling. Pickle Relish! That has a nice snap to it! What happened to your hair?

Delightful Film
4 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film presented a different story than the original we all associate with a slipper and having to return at Mid-Night. Leslie Caron, (Ella) played the role as a girl who became a servant in her own home and was treated poorly by her mother and two sisters. Ella was the laugh of the town because she always looked dirty from ashes she had to handle along with all the other menial duties she had to perform on a daily basis. When Prince Charles, (Michael Wilding) arrives in town after many years going to college, he eventually meets up with Ella who he remembers when she was a very little girl. There is plenty of dancing and Ella performs a great ballet performance along with Prince Charles. Estelle Winwood, (Mrs. Toquet) played the role as a fairy god mother and gave a great supporting role. This is a great entertaining film and is rather delightful to view.
