It's not all action, and while there's plenty to keep the kids entertained, there are also nice poetic touches of animated artistry that will appeal more to adults.

November 9, 2009
Great animation, but not quite as great as the pre-war standard; deeply problematic gender issues in a reed-thin story; some brilliant characters, a lot of fairly dull ones.

Yes, it's beautiful, and yes, it's classic. But it's also got rather a bland pair of lead characters. That said, it's still enjoyable family entertainment, and shall remain forever so.

Cinderella is beguiling proof that Walt Disney still knows his way around fairyland.

This 1950 effort shows Disney at the tail end of his best period, when his backgrounds were still luminous with depth and detail and his incidental characters still had range and bite.

Considering the army of craftsmen who work on a Disney cartoon film, it is hard to give individual credits, for the memorable qualities.

Of all the Cinderella stories on film, this one has the most villainous stepmother (voiced by Eleanor Audley) and the most charming mice.

Disney films have lasted for years by those good-natured moments and the superlative animation...

Represents, alas, the early stages of Disney-itis… follows the fairy-tale template [but] doesn't do much to elevate the material the way [Disney's] earlier features did.
