Storyline

Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical retelling of the classic fairy tale. Cinderella is a teenage girl forced to do all of the menial tasks in the home she shares with her coldhearted stepmother and homely stepsisters. One day when home alone, Cinderella shares a cup of water with a thirsty and handsome traveler, not realizing until he continues on his journey that he is the crown prince of the kingdom. Shortly thereafter, the king and queen invite every young maiden in the kingdom to a royal ball so that the crown prince can find a girl to marry. Cinderella's stepmother and stepsisters go to the ball, leaving Cinderella behind to wish about how her life could be. While she is daydreaming, she is visited by her fairy godmother, who makes it possible for her wishes to come true. Written by Stephen Hughes

Trivia

Jack Jones was originally cast as the prince. Stuart Damon was a last-minute replacement. He was a New York actor who would go on to appear in Richard Rodgers' DO I HEAR A WALTZ? on Broadway, later that same year. But his agent had to lend him the airfare to Los Angeles in order to play the prince. See more »

Goofs

Cinderella runs out of the ball, but as she appears outside, her glass slipper is already there ahead of her. Her yellow stocking feet are bare. She runs past it, then looks down at it. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Aide: We are in sight of the towers of home and your father's palace.
Prince: It hardly seems like we've been gone for an entire year.
Aide: I sent messengers ahead to tell of your arrival.
Prince: I am dying of thirst. Let us stop at that cottage.

Alternate Versions

Sony's 2002 DVD, possibly sourced from a tape used for a rerun, cut out some of Cinderella's first meeting with Prince Christopher -- specifically, her explanation that her step-family went to town square to see the prince. Shout! Factory's 2014 DVD, sourced from the master tape, restored the full scene, as well as commercial bumpers and station identification. See more »

The most memorable movie I remember seeing as a child!
17 February 2004 | by keelys-kollectablesSee all my reviews

I was only about 6 years old, and back in the 60's, there weren't too many movies on television for children. I remember sitting in front of the small television on the floor mesmerized. The movie was a fantasy come to life! I have been looking for the movie for decades. Everytime I see a Cinderella movie, I check it to see if it is the one that I have been searching for these past 40 years. I have finally found it, and I can assure you, it is just as mesmerizing today, as it was back when I was just 6 years old. For a true fantasy, you can't find a better Cinderella than Lesley Ann Warren!
