Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella
Television movie remake of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "Cinderella." With the help of her Fairy Godmother, a poor girl who dreams of finding true happiness, but who is mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters, Minerva and Calliope, attends a special ball where the local Prince must choose his future wife. Disguised as a mysterious princess, Cinderella enchants the Prince. Remembering her Fairy Godmother's admonition that she leave the ball by the strike of twelve, Cinderella flees, leaving behind a sparkling glass slipper as the single clue to her identity. The Prince sets out on a mission with his servant Lionel to find the one special maiden who lost the glass slipper. After trying the slipper on the endless supply of eligible female feet in the kingdom, he finally finds Cinderella. When she tries on the slipper, it's a perfect fit. In true fairy tale fashion, Cinderella and the Prince are married and start their lives of "happily ever after."
