Storyline

Cinderella, the "ash girl," is kept in menial labor by her two wicked stepsisters. Meanwhile the handsome prince of the territory is out hunting bears.

The prince falls for her, but she runs away as her fairy godmother's deadline of midnight arrives. The prince finds her lost slipper and searches the territory for its rightful owner, hoping to live happily ever after when he finds her. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Disney's Early Take
7 July 2015 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Cinderella (1922)

*** (out of 4)

Walt Disney directed this early cartoon from the Laugh-O-Gram. The story is pretty simple as Cinderella wants to go to the Prince's ball but of course her evil stepsisters won't allow that. Thankfully her Fairy Godmother shows up just in time. There's really nothing overly special about this film other than the fact that Disney worked on it. If you took away that interesting bit of history then it's doubtful too many people would be seeking this version out. However, it's impossible to get away from who directed it so if you happen to watch this version you'll see it's nothing too special but it remains mildly entertaining. The animation itself was good for its period but I think the highlight is just seeing how weird it actually is. The Prince is rather dorky to say the least and the entire story is just told in such a way that you can't help but find it weird but interesting.
