GREAT 1955 film loosely based on Cinderella story, starring age 24 Leslie Caron and produced by the same team that had just previously created Leslie's terrific 'Lili' movie - also highly recommended - and another example of filmed live theatre.
I didn't/couldn't remember any versions of the Cinderella story, so this was an 'open book' experience for me where I just took it in as it unfolded (and wasn't spending any time making any comparisons to other versions).
Ms. Caron (now one of my favorite dancer/players) occasionally uses a rather odd, somewhat British sounding accent in her speaking lines - which caught my ear.
Estelle Winwood was terrific as fairy godmother Mrs. Toquet. I particularly enjoyed her comment about women's shoes having heels - and men's not - they couldn't 'handle' it.
Fun seeing all those elaborate hoop dresses, too - times, change...

"The Glass Slipper" is a magical movie. It is both a fantasy, a ballet, a musical and a real life story. It is all blended into one of the most beautifully filmed movies I have ever seen. Each frame is like a painter pallet. I could watch the ballet portions over and over again. Leslie Caron lights up the screen. She will capture your heart and mind. My words are insufficient to describe such a spectacle as "The Glass Slipper". I think it is a movie that every man, woman and child could thoroughly enjoy!
P.S. Can you identify the narrator? He is not listed in the credits. It took me a while to put the voice with an actor. You may get it right away!
