I have often thought about this film while growing up but was unable to remember the name or actors to find it. When i described my memories of the film to a film guru he immediately identified Leslie Caron. I was so happy to find, watch and relive my childhood again when this DVD finally landed on my doorstep.

HASH(0x969b2828) out of 5 stars "Cinderella? What a beautiful word!" 15 Mar. 2003
By CodeMaster Talon - Published on Amazon.com
What a beautiful movie! A little-known adaptation of the classic fairy tale starring Leslie Caron, "The Glass Slipper" is charming, sweet and lovely to look at.
The plot follows the familiar curves of "Cinderella", with a few twists; this Ella is angry and slightly violent, and her fairy godmother is a kleptomaniac. Made in the 1950's, this version is perhaps more slowly paced than we're used to, but playful dialogue, terrific sets, great music and lush costumes make it well worth seeking out. An all star cast includes Elsa Lanchester, Estelle Winwood, Keenan Wynn and the Parisian Ballet, with direction by Charles Walters (who also directed Caron in the wonderful "Lili").
All in all, a good family film and a wonderful movie for a rainy saturday afternoon. So remember, "Loving one person makes it that much easier to love others", and be sure to check out "The Glass Slipper". Highly recommended!

HASH(0x948206f0) out of 5 stars Cinderella With Heart! 17 Dec. 2005
By phillindholm - Published on Amazon.com
"The Glass Slipper" is a modern interpretation of the classic fairy tale. And it's a good one. Leslie Caron is cast as Ella, a girl almost destroyed by the death of her mother and the lack of understanding shown her by her insensitive stepmother (Elsa Lanchester) and haughty stepsisters ("Gunsmoke's" Amanda Blake, and Lisa Daniels.) The local villagers are likewise indifferent to her, and (as narrator Walter Pigeon dryly observes), her spirit is in danger of being broken as a result. Enter local "madwoman/kleptomaniac" Estelle Winwood, who, simply by reaching out to the defiant girl, gives her confidence and hope. Yes, she's the film's equivalent of the fairy godmother, and she is wonderful in the part. Although the prince (a mature Michael Wilding) leaves a bit to be desired in the dancing department, he is perfectly all right otherwise. Keenan Wynn is wasted as his companion, but Barry Jones is amusing as the prince's father, and Miss Lanchester makes a suitably nasty stepmother. But what of Leslie Caron? Well, she goes from neglected little spitfire to luminous princess effortlessly, and her appearance at the ball is a treat. The ballet sequences do tend to slow the film down, but Miss Caron did begin her career as a dancer, and she has a grace few others could match. The music by Bronislaw Kaper perfectly enhances the mood, as does the modest but tasteful production. Strangely enough, this could be called the original "Ever After", because, except for a delightful twist at the end, the tale is told as if it could have happened. All in all, a captivating version of "Cinderella", and one which will linger in your memory. [phillindholm]

HASH(0x9486d2d0) out of 5 stars Leslie Caron - a delight as always! 21 Dec. 2000
By Byron Kolln - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
THE GLASS SLIPPER is a magical, poetic and charming new telling of the Cinderella tale.
Leslie Caron plays Ella, the soot-covered heroine, who is the bane of all the townfolk's insults and jokes, and she is alone and friendless.
Enter the dotty Mrs Toquet (Estelle Winwood) who becomes her confidant and trusted friend, and who is an incurable kleptomaniac to boot!
Michael Wilding as the dashing Prince, Elsa Lanchester as Widow Sonder and Amanda Blake and Lisa Daniels as the sisters Birdena and Serafina all add color and whimsy to the proceedings.
The score is by Bronislau Kaper (FOREVER DARLING, LILI) and the ballet sequences are handled by Roland Petit and the Paris Ballet.

HASH(0x94820f9c) out of 5 stars A kind of precursor to "Ever After." 11 Aug. 2003
By Chris Aldridge - Published on Amazon.com
I remember seeing this years ago, presented as a special edition of a family TV anthology (this gives you an idea of how old I am; anthologies are but a thing of the past now). One of the things I immediately warmed to was the fact that they dispense with much of the conventional magic known from the original fairy tale: the fairy godmother is given a specific name and personality- and portrayed as something of a neighborhood kook who loves funny words and even steals. When she helps Ella (only given a 'Cinder' prefix by those who tease her) go to the ball she borrows a coach, steals a gown, and has to make her charge over herself. Leslie Caron, a positively beautiful dancer in her early years, is made to look less pretty than she really is, and the film teaches a rather sizable lesson by making the stepsisters conventionally beautiful for once- but still with poisoned personalities. With this scenario, we are allowed to judge the central character by her spirit, intelligence, and wistfullness (something that would be re-imagined 40 years later in the film EVER AFTER)- knowing all along that she will be rewarded in the end. It is also a sweet change that the prince and Ella meet before seeing each other at the ball- creating a real love story (which is further explored in the Roland Petit fantasy ballets- 'the son of the cook,' and so on). It is a shame that Leslie Caron did not continue to dance on film after this year; all of her subsequent films after 'Gigi' (a musical without dance sequences) were straight dramas. Check this out; it is one of MGM's lesser known, but evey bit as impressive.

HASH(0x94b9de10) out of 5 stars a charming and unusual cinderella 18 Mar. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

This is my favorite version of Cinderella.Leslie Caron is captivating and refreshing as the feisty, not always aimiable fairy tale heroin.The fairy godmother character has a charming and interesting twist,and I like that the "ugly stepsisters"are quit beautiful outwardly,it's inner beauty they're lacking.[A good message for kids that outer beauty and inner beauty don't always go hand and hand.]There are some long ballet sequences in this movie which may not be for everyone...but I found them charming as well as my 5 year old daughter did.[Especially the scene where Cinderella imagines she's a ballerina dancing on a gigantic iced cake.]...Ooooooo,they just don't em like they used to.
