The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella (1976)
Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy
This film was suggested to me by a friend and I have loved it since 😀 ! I’m not usually a fan of 1970’s movies (waiting to be convinced 😛 ) but I was happily surprised and would re-watch this film anytime. The songs are wonderfully written and you end up singing along to half of them weeks later 😛 ! It’s the classic tale of Cinderella revisited and made into a musical which can be enjoyed by adults and children alike. Though, I would warn you there are cheesy moments and overacting of side characters which make it endearing to me but could get annoying for others. The acting of Richard Chamberlain and Gemma Craven is wonderful (and believable). It’s a great movie to watch, full of nostalgia and a wonderfully fairytale into musical 🙂 ! Enjoy!!
I give it 4.5 Stars out of 5!
