In the tiny kingdom of Euphrania, the King and his court are most anxious to get Prince Edward wed. But Edward wants to marry for love. Meanwhile, young Cinderella finds life drastically altered with her father's death as she's forced to be a servant in her own house. But a cheery fairy godmother helps her with her impossible tasks, and even gets her to take an evening out at the King's bride-finding ball. But when the magic wears off, and the prince with shoe-in-hand searches for Cinderella and finds her, what is going to happen to Euphrania without the needed marriage alliance to prevent war?

This is great film in both DVD and VHS versions having been restored to full length.
21 June 2001 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

I have recently purchased the DVD and VHS versions of this film. I love the music, the dancing, the story line and the humor. The dancing is the best I have seen in a long time. Gemma Craven and Richard Chamberlain are excellent in the rolls of Cinderella and the Prince. I love the sound of Gemma's voice both while talking and singing. She brings a freshness to the roll in that she is the personification of the girl/woman that I have always imagined Cinderella to be. She is petite and very lovely in her roll. The all star cast really helps when you see the fully restored version. The costumes are excellent. The DVD is nice in that it also has a trailer on the "Making of the Slipper and the Rose". There is also a voice over capability by Brian Forbes that can be activated during Film. He provides comment on various aspects of the film that are a real plus. There is also an interview with the Sherman brothers, who with Brian Forbes were responsible for the initial script and of course they wrote the music and provided the lyrics for the film script. My only regrets are that I had ignored this Gem for so long and that there were no other films in which Gemma Craven was allowed to sing in.
