Cinderella 1950

The greatest love story ever told.
When Cinderella's cruel stepmother prevents her from attending the Royal Ball, she gets some unexpected help from the lovable mice Gus and Jaq, and from her Fairy Godmother.

The heroine is pretty bland and unmemorable and the central fairytale story well worn and often told, but as with many of Disney's films, they are supported by a memorable villain, in this case the stepmother, who drips with loathing towards the heroine beneath a veneer of civility, and of course the usual array of additional characters, who provide much of the humour and interest in the film, notably the mice, who perform the same function as the dwarves in Snow White. Indeed, part of the problem lies with a number of similarities to Disney's first animated film. Still worth watching though, and the animation, even 60 years later is beautifully done.
