The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella (1976) Poster


The scene where Cinderella is seen swinging on a chair surrounded by climbing flowers while she is in exile is a direct reference to the well-known painting "The Swing" by Jean-Honore Fragonard, a famous French artist who was praised for his use of color. Details of Cinderella's costume and setting are similar to Fragonard's painting, right down to the color of her dress and the style of her hat.
Ironically received its most publicity in recent decades by being spotlighted in the film Frost/Nixon (2008) as the real movie whose premiere producer David Frost is attending (while his problems with the Nixon interviews are escalating).
Margaret Lockwood's last film.
The dog in the film was the director's own dog, Fred.
Over 800 girls were considered for the part of Cinderella, and around 150 were interviewed before Gemma Craven was picked.
Over 300 costumes were made for this film.
Kiddie gangster musical Bugsy Malone was being filmed at the same time at the same studios, and director Alan Parker stated that the kids were running around behind the scenes of Cinderella, causing mischief.
