Movie Info

Lesley Ann Warren plays the title role in this television production of the classic Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein III musical. Cinderella (Warren) is a sweet and pretty young woman who has been given a poor hand by fate; her stepmother (Jo Van Fleet) treats her cruelly, and while her graceless sisters are invited to a royal ball, Cinderella is not allowed to attend. But her Fairy Godmother (Celeste Holm) has other plans, and Cinderella attends the ball, where she makes a tremendous impression upon the Prince (Stuart Damon). But her Godmother's magic only works until midnight, and Cinderella is forced to leave the festivities at their height; will she ever see the Prince again? And how will he ever find her? This was the second television production of this musical version of the classic fairy tale; the original 1957 version featured a young Julie Andrews in the lead.

Critic Reviews for Cinderella

All Critics (1)

The definitive musical Cinderella [for] its fidelity to the climax of Perrault's tale, altered both in the Disney version (cleverly) and in the 1957 version (misguidedly).

Audience Reviews for Cinderella

Charming TV version of the fable with everybody acquitting themselves well. Lesley Ann Warren is a most ingratiating heroine

One of my all-time favorite tv specials. My BIG question is does ANYONE know what happened to the dress? I know that Lesley's husband surprised her & bought her the crown she wore & the slippers went on ebay but nothing has been said about that gorgeous dress!! I to this day love that dress & as many others am sure would LOVE to have it. But I can find no mention at all of what became of it? If anyone knows how to find out please let me know, I have searched for years. Also tried to find a way to just write to Lesley to tell her how profoundly she affected me (I was 9 at the time it came out) in a positive way that has stuck to this day & I have never had the never to write to her until now. She has said in interviews she still gets letters from women & girls who love her as *Cinderella* and how much it means to her but how are they getting to contact her. Also if anyone knows that one let me know, please. Thanks for listening & I appreciate in advance any and all help you can give me God Bless Pam

I loved this movie when I was a little girl. It's not the greatest movie, but it's good. I watched this movie when I was four years old. I still remember the songs 45 years later. In my own little corner,in my own little chair and 10 seconds ago I saw you. Boys will not like this movie, but little girls will love it.
