Musical retelling of the famous fairytale. In the kingdom of Euphrania, young Cinderella (Gemma Craven) lives a life of misery with her wicked stepmother (Margaret Lockwood) and two stepsisters. When a Great Ball is thrown in honour of the Prince (Richard Chamberlain), the forlorn Cinderella dreams of attending - only to have her wish granted by her Fairy Godmother (Annette Crosbie)! At the Ball the Prince meets and is smitten by Cinderella, but the path of true love does not run straight...

All is not well in the mythical kingdom of Euphrania. For a start, it’s hemmed in on all sides by belligerent countries and to add to its woes, it has a prince (Richard Chamberlain) who refuses to secure its borders by marrying neighbouring royalty. His problem is, that he’ll only marry for love. So, as is the way in all good fairy tales, the king (Michael Hordern) and the queen (Lally Bowers) organize a magnificent ball to which all eligible Royal princesses are invited to woo the recalcitrant prince. It’s here that Cinderella (Gemma Craven), a twinkly fairy godmother (Annette Crosbie), a frog, a dog (Fred) and a silver slipper come into his sphere with life-changing consequences.

As comforting as a cup of steaming tea and a slice of Battenberg, The Slipper and The Rose overflows with witty repartee and toe-tapping musical numbers, courtesy of the Sherman Brothers of Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang fame. It’s a film for all the family and they sure don’t make ‘em like this anymore!
