CINDERELLA (Theatrical Release USA 1950)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Cinderella—Disney animated classic—tells its story nicely and has that over-the-top happy ending that one expects from a Disney film. Despite its age (1950), this movie not only deserves a watch and re-watch, but also deserves its permanent addition to the family home video library.

Storyline

A young girl’s riches to rags to riches story needs a little magic for its happily ever after ending.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Directors Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson, and Hamilton Luske for directing effort. Thank you to Restoration Producer Amy Bailey and Producer Walt Disney for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Cinderella (Ilene Woods), Lady Tremaine (voice of Eleanor Audley), Fairy Godmother (voice of Verna Felton), Drizella (voice of Rhonda Williams), Jaq/Gus (voice of James MacDonald), King/Grand Duke (voice of Luis Van Rooten), Doorman (voice of Don Barclay), Anastasia (voice of Lucille Bliss), Prince Charming (singing voice of Mike Douglas), Prince Charming (voice of William Phipps), Birds (voice of Marion Darlington), and Bruno (voice of Earl Keen).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The story, based upon Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm tales, has been beautifully animated. The characters are well defined and it stirs the emotion for justice and the re-establishment of right in the world. An excellent children’s watch. Great work for Director Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson, and Hamilton Luske.
