Marisol and Antonio along with the American Robert Conrad shine , being professionally directed by a good Hollywood director , George Sherman .
22 February 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Antonio , the known internationally dancer is preparing a big performance for television along with an American star named Bob (Robert Conrad) . Here Marisol is a splendid singer and dancer who lives at a boarding house along with his father (Fernando Rey) , a lot of ex circus artists (Fernando Sancho, Francisco Camoiras , Guillermo Marin..) and a chimpanzee called Miguel that is often doing antics and frolics , similar to famous Cheeta . But the popular dancer Antonio is missing a good female dancer . One day , near a billboard Antonio sees a girl dancing (Marisol) while walking the streets , but when he is going to talk to her she escapes . She lost one of her shoes , and this will be the only clue Antonio and Bob Conrad will have to find her .

Likeable and charming musical comedy with ex-child prodigy Marisol as the new Cinderella who runs away and lost her shoe , being the only hint to find her by Antonio and Robert Conrad , she is accompanied by a great plethora of secondaries . Of course , Marisol steals the show as the marvelous singer and dancer teen girl . Here stands out two great artists : Antonio and Marisol . Both of them perform impressive and overwhelming dancing that turn out to be the highlights of the movie . Marisol is well supported by a fine support cast , full of familiar faces as Fernando Rey , Antonio Casal , Guillermo Marín , Emiliano Redondo , Francisco Camoiras , Fernando Sancho , Carlos Casaravilla , Jesús Guzmán , Manuel Tejada , Valentin Tornos , among others . It contains a luminous and glimmer cinematography by Antonio L. Ballesteros .Musical score by Augusto Alguero responds appropriately to the ambient , originating a careful atmosphere .

The filmmaker George Sherman as well as the famous producer Goyanes succeed in this picture , obtaining a great achievement , managing perfectly to the performers and taking advantage of them , giving the best of their acting . It's worthwhile mingle of music , spectacular choreography , comedy , sentimentalism and good feeling . Here Marisol gives a sympathetic acting as a fabulous singer/dancer who cares his father/Fernando Rey and a motley group of circus artists . . Can be said that she is perfectly adequate to his measure .Marisol was an appealing Spanish actress and singer . Spanish film studios were looking for a new child star to follow the steps of Pablito Calvo, and make popular and populist folkloric movies and they found Marisol . She was discovered by her future producer Manuel J. Goyanes in an exhibition of the "Coros y Danzas de Málaga" in TVE in 1959 . Her debut in cinema was in 1960 and she complemented her activity in cinema with records , recitals and TV-shows . ¨Búsqueme Esa Chica¨ produced by Manuel J Goyanes , in fact , she was introduced to the movie business and discovered by this powerful producer in ¨Un Rayo De Luz¨ (1960) by Luis Lucia , who directed her in this first feature , where earned his famous name . He was widely known in Spain when she became a widely successful child star , following ¨Ha LLegado Un Angel¨, ¨Tombola¨, ¨Marisol Rumbo a Rio¨ which were big box-office hits in Spain during Franco's dictatorship , and she became Spain's most famous girl actress , outstanding his highly expressive face and eyes , charming eyes and innocent , angelical face . She was a milestone in Spanish "child prodigies" under Franco along with Joselito , Pili and Mili , Ana Belén and especially Pablito Calvo . And the producers trying to keep them as little kids for as long as possible . Due to false advertising by the studios that made their movies, and which wanted to make them appear younger than they really were , an obsession that haunted them through the whole of their careers . After the national and international hits as ¨La Nueva Cenicienta¨ , ¨La Historia De Bienvenido¨ and ¨Cabriola¨, and following other successful films as ¨4 Bodas Marisol¨, ¨Carola De Dia , Carola De Noche¨ . In her films she often sings Flamenco Cante , Saetas , Soleadas and other Folkloric songs . After several movies and records , and already a big star as a singer and an actress in Europe, the next move was trying to triumph in America, there she also played , sang and danced to grant local box-office . His success even reached around the world . However, life was not too glamorous for Marisol, as she was treated almost as a sideshow act by his managers , not allowing him to become an ordinary teenager . She was forced to keep his childlike image up to the seventies ; however , thanks to Juán Antonio Bardém changed his acting style , playing thrillers as ¨La Corrupción de Chris Miller¨ and ¨Poder Del Deseo¨ , and subsequently directed by prestigious filmmakers as Carlos Saura in ¨Carmen¨ , ¨Bodas de Sangre¨ and Mario Camus¨ in ¨Dias Del Pasado¨. Her last movies were the notorious TV series ¨Proceso a Mariana Pineda¨ and ¨Caso Cerrado¨ and she was not successful anymore . Marisol married two times , to Carlos Goyanes and Antonio Gades . Fidel Castro was the best man at her wedding to Antonio Gades . She has three daughters from her marriage to Antonio Gades , on of them the known actress Maria Esteve . Disappearing from public life in 1985, when she was still high in her career, she left everything , returned to her homeland, Malaga, and has lived as a housewife since then for her own choice . Has received many invitations to return, but has declined all of them, even simple interviews on TV. Retired In Malaga from acting at early age to become a discreet person and was then discovered much later that she had become a housewife and is now a social and humanitarian activist.

The motion picture "La nueva Cenicienta" translated to "The New Cinderella" in English was well directed by George Sherman in enjoyable style , though has some flaws . Sherman made reliable low-budget fare for Columbia between 1945-48, then moved on to do the same at Universal for another eight years , where he directed this ¨Tomahawk¨ . Sherman specialized almost exclusively in "B" westerns there , including the "Three Musketeers" series, which featured a young John Wayne. George directed lots of Westerns as ¨The Last of the Fast Guns¨ , ¨The Lone Hand¨, ¨Santa Fe stampede¨ , ¨Red skin¨ , ¨Chief Crazy Horse¨ ¨Calamity Jane¨, ¨Relentless¨ , ¨Comanche Territory¨ , ¨Dawn at Socorro¨, ¨Border River¨ , ¨war arrow¨, and many others . He also made occasional forays into action and horror themes, often achieving a sense of style over substance . The only "A"-grade films to his credit were two westerns starring John Wayne: ¨Comancheros¨ (1961) (as producer) and ¨The big Jack¨ (1971) . His last films were realized in Spain as "Find That Girl" , ¨The new Cinderella¨ and ¨Joaquin Murrieta¨. Rating : 6.5/10 . Worthwhile seeing for appropriate scenarios and breathtaking choreographies along with the wonderful dances between Antonio and Marisol . Well worth watching
