Starring Leslie Caron, Michael Wilding, Keenan Wynn, Estelle Winwood, Elsa Lanchester, and Barry Jones.
Ella is mistreated by her step-mother and step-sisters. One day she meets a handsome man who is really Prince Charles in disguise. He invites her to a ball and while leaving she loses a glass slipper, the only clue the prince has in finding her.
In this version of the "Cinderella" saga, Caron plays an unglamourous girl gradually transformed into the expected beauty. Winwood is the fairy godmother who inspires the girl to find happiness, rather than simply providing it for her magically. The film is highlighted by the stunning dance numbers, choreographed by Roland Petit and featuring the Paris ballet.
