Musical adaptation of the story of Cinderella and her magical trip to the prince's ball.
Georges Méliès's first attempt at Cinderella was in 1899. That film was extraordinary then for having multiple scenes and a semblance of a narrative; additionally, the use of dissolves as transitions in it influenced other filmmakers for years to do the same. Méliès was the cinema world's preeminent leader then. By 1912, however, that was no longer the case; frankly, as evidenced by this feature, his style had become dated. Moreover, Méliès had begun to adopt techniques from other filmmakers, such as direct cuts instead of dissolves, and there's even a match on action shot during the slipper trying-on scene.
Cinderella, with some modern touches: The Brooklyn-accented Cinderella is on the phone to her girlfriend Sadie telling her about the ball. The fairy godmother looks like 'Mae West'; the dancers at the ball jitterbug; the prince looks and acts like Harpo Marx. At the end, when the prince drops by with the slipper, the fairy godmother reappears to claim both the slipper and the prince.
