The Glass Slipper—Leslie Caron

This enchanting musical romance gives Leslie Caron the perfect follow-up to the beloved “Lili.” Once more, there’s a fairy-tale atmosphere without any actual flights into fantasy. Once more Leslie is the shy and shabby young girl who blossoms into a charmer. “The Glass Slipper” is the Cinderella story told with music and with no magic spells. In a tiny mythical country of 18th century Europe, Leslie’s a slavey in her stepfamily’s household; Michael Wilding’s a debonair prince. With beautiful sets and costumes, M-G-M makes the love story a feast for eyes and ears.

When prince Michael Wilding meets Leslie by chance, tells her he’s a palace cook. And she dreams that is his dancing sweetheart, in a fabulous kitchen

The grubby, cinder-streaked little kitchen maid is transformed!—ready to don a ball gown and glass slippers, given to her by a mysterious, eccentric old lady

A pirouetting doll, Leslie’s joined in two of her dances by Roland Petit’s Ballets de Paris. She starred with this troupe in a national theatre tour before filming began

As poor Cinderella, Leslie is harshly treated by step-mother Elsa Lanchester and stepsisters Lurene Tuttle, Lisa Daniels and Amanda Blake, luxuriously dressed

Dazzling in her suddenly acquired finery, she creates a sensation at the palace, even dances with the duke (Barry Jones), the realm’s ruler, her beloved’s father

But there’s more trouble ahead—the midnight escape from the palace—before Leslie and her prince reach the famous happy ending, together “forever after”
