Zelma O'Neal in a Starring Role
20 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mister Cinders (1934) is a delightful British musical starring Clifford Mollison and Zelma O'Neal in a take-off of the Cinderella story. Mollison is a poor relation living and working in the mansion of a cousin. The household is dominated by a a social-climbing wife. An American millionaire is saved from drowning by Mollison but the old lady steers the credit toward her bizarre sons. When O'Neal is called to collect daddy, she almost runs over a cop so she exchanges identities with a woman going to the mansion to work as a maid. O'Neal poses as a maid but gets the real story on the old lady and her worthless sons. They all end up at a ball hosted by the millionaire and the story plays out. Mollison is good as Mr. Cinders and it's interesting to see O'Neal in a starring role. She's quite good. Several good songs. Co-stars include Esme Church as the old battleaxe, the odd Western Brothers as her sons, Finlay Currie as the American, W.H. Berry as the dimwitted cop, Edmund Breon as the husband, and Lorna Storm as Minerva. Watching this, it's hard to figure why Zelma O'Neal was basically a bust in films.
