Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical retelling of the classic fairy tale. Cinderella is a teenage girl forced to do all of the menial tasks in the home she shares with her coldhearted stepmother and homely stepsisters. One day when home alone, Cinderella shares a cup of water with a thirsty and handsome traveler, not realizing until he continues on his journey that he is the crown prince of the kingdom. Shortly thereafter, the king and queen invite every young maiden in the kingdom to a royal ball so that the crown prince can find a girl to marry. Cinderella's stepmother and stepsisters go to the ball, leaving Cinderella behind to wish about how her life could be. While she is daydreaming, she is visited by her fairy godmother, who makes it possible for her wishes to come true. Written by
We are in sight of the towers of home and your father's palace.
It hardly seems like we've been gone for an entire year.
I sent messengers ahead to tell of your arrival.
I am dying of thirst. Let us stop at that cottage.

A true Classic;warm, genuine,funny but most of all Romantic. The scene where Cinderella appears at the top of the stairs and descends(without A sound)and then waltzes with the prince is most memeorable. Both Stuart Damon and Lesley Ann Warren were excellent, but not perfect.Their singing occassionally flattens out, but that adds to the innocent joy of this Classic While I found the Disney remake admirable in its color-blindness, it lost some innocence.
