Prince David is having trouble finding a bride amongst the maidens of the village, so his father decides to hold a masked ball. Sinderella, an adopted French orphan, puts up with abuse from her stepmother and two stepsisters, and is not allowed to go to the ball. She is despondent until her inebriated fairy godfather appears and fixes her up real pretty and sends her on to the ball, with the admontion that she must return by midnight. Sinderella and the Prince get along famously, but the time flies and she leaves in a hurry, dropping her gilded support in her haste. The Prince mounts a desperate search for his loved one, requiring all the maidens of the village to try on the forgotten garment. Written by

Although this obviously isn't first class movie making, and the conscious jokes are mostly duds, this flick is worth seeing for its novelty and as a relic of a bygone era! I would venture to call this movie an attempt at a sophisticated sex comedy. The toplessness is remarkable for simultaneously being unabashedly gratuitous yet taking up such a small part of the film. In fact the breasts aren't even shown very closely, in one scene, at least. Seems the goal of the movie makers was to appeal both to an "art" film crowd and a nudie crowd. The musical numbers (yes, musical numbers!!!) and the costuming actually reflect a fair degree of ambitiousness. And the attention to the characters and to the spirit of the original fairy tale. At the same time the sound, acting and screenplay are all noticeably low budget. A quite odd bird for 21st century viewers! And I had a fine time watching it. It may be dumb, but it's entertaining!! And of course the concept is...classic.
