Julie Andrews portrays Cinderella in this classic tale of her passion to attend the Prince's ball. She is aided by her Godmother, who creates the coach, coachmen and gown for her, and off she goes to meet the Prince. Rodgers and Hammerstein's first original musical for television. 90 minute version of the old fairy tale of Cinderella, without altering the basic story. It's still about a poor girl, mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters, whose fairy godmother enables her to meet Prince Charming at a ball. The Prince falls in love with her and eventually seeks her out, through the aid of the glass slipper, and makes her his bride.
In writing the book for the show, Oscar Hammerstein 2d has made the stepmother and stepsisters not very bright, rather than cruel,and has turned the fairy godmother into a down-to-earth lady, also adding two lovable characters in the form of the King and Queen.
Julie Andrews, star of "My Fair, Lady," heads an all-star cast with Jon Cypher, newcomer to starring roles, as Prince Charming. Robert Russell Bennett orchestrated Richard Rodgers music; conducted by Alfredo Antonini.
Complete broadcast with open and close. Sound recorded direct line. Excellent.
