Cinderella (1950)


The greatest love story ever told.

Producer Walt Disney's twelfth animated movie, based on the fairy tale by Charles Perrault. Follows the beautiful but put-upon Cinderella who, after being denied entry to the Royal Ball by her cruel stepmother, finds unexpected help from a Fairy Godmother.... More

Turning her rags into a dress with glass slippers and a pumpkin into a carriage, Cinderella's Fairy Godmother allows her to attend the ball on the condition she returns before midnight when the spell will break. There, she falls for Prince Charming, but flees the ball to avoid being exposed, losing one of her slippers in the process. The next morning, the King announces his men will visit every house in the kingdom, along with the Prince, to find the foot that fits the glass slipper.

Cinderella was Walt Disney's biggest hit since his first animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Its profits are said to have secured the future of his animation department.Hide

  • 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. Full Review

  • The musical numbers woven into the fantasy are generally solid, with at least two or three likely hit tunes standing out in the half-dozen songs. Full Review

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

  • When those little mice bust a gut trying to drag that key up hundreds of stairs in order to free Cinderella, I don't care how many Kubrick pictures you've seen, it's still exciting. Full Review
