She rode away with the prince on a white horse!
3 June 2005 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

She rode away with the prince on a white horse! Only recently did I get to see the second part to the '85 ABC After School Special. God I was addicted to those back in the day, and it didn't fail to feed my childhood flights of high school fancy as I saw Kyra (then 20) sail down the steps to meet her over-the-top friendly faced stepmother in an empire waist white lace dress. The script cornball and predictable but she and Grant certainly stole the Show at the end! She and the late Pearl Bailey play off to one another so well, since the real star was the street smart Fairy Godmother/Bag Lady. "You know my late husband ate potato chips!" And Grant Show was an effective showpiece as Gregory Matthew Drewery Prince III, but he simply wasn't believable as he showered the demure but artistically gifted Cindy so much attention while out riding his horse, Royal (what a surprise), versus the half emaciated gruesome twosome Liza and Laura so gregariously fawning over him on the joggers' path in Central Park where a more horrific scene was played out not too long after the taping. There could have been more interaction between the prince and Cindy (perhaps at school) but since the ABC ASP series is coming to DVD I can't wait to hear the commentaries!
