I knew it existed!
5 February 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie one time when I was six years old, I'm now 29, and I never forgot it. I asked people through out college and my working years, "Do you remember a black version of 'Cinderella' called 'Cindy' and the little girl had to sleep in the bath tub?" And everyone's response was "No", so I was really starting to think that I had imagined the whole thing, but IMDB is wonderful, because it proved I wasn't crazy...It does exist! And, though I don't remember every detail, it was a great and refreshing update to the old fairy tale. I am proud to be one of the few people who saw it, and better than that, remember it.
