Aired on CBS in what was widely believed to be the network's answer to NBC's Peter Pan, Cinderella starred Julie Andrews in the title role of Cinderella, John Cypher as the Prince, and Edith Adams as the Fairy Godmother. Though the musical was specifically written to showcase Andrews' famous vocal talents, all performances were well-received. Over 107 million television viewers tuned into this live adaptation of Cinderella, giving it the largest audience of the time. Another television version of the classic fairy tale was made in 1997 and featured actress Whoopi Goldberg, as well as musicians Whitney Houston and Brandy.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Impossible? It's possible! One of home video's holy grails at last makes its royal DVD debut. Commissioned by CBS, this original musical by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II had not been seen by the general public between its original broadcast on March 31, 1957, and its December 2004 revival on PBS. It was remade twice in the interval, first with Lesley Ann Warren and then with Brandy, but the role of Cinderella fits Julie Andrews like a glass slipper. The cast includes Broadway veteran Howard Lindsay as the King, John Cypher (Hill Street Blues) as the Prince, "Edith" Adams as Cinderella's Fairy Godmother, and scene-stealers Kaye Ballard and Alice Ghostley as the jealous stepsisters (their comic "Lament" is a showstopping highlight). This was the most-watched television program of its day, and while it can't help but look somewhat primitive, time has not dulled its enchanting spell, thanks to Rodgers and Hammerstein's lovely ballads ("Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful") and Andrews, Broadway's fairest lady, who contributes a new introduction for this disc. Other bonus features take viewers backstage and behind the scenes of this legendary broadcast. There’s also a classic clip of R&H appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show the week before Cinderella's premiere. Viewers are certainly in for a "Lovely Night."

    A classic Julie Andrews performance.

    I found this while browsing in the dvd aisles and just had to have it. I'm a major Julie Andrews fan so I suppose I was already set out to like it before I even put the disc in, but my sisters loved it too. My youngest sister (8 yrs old) even requests it for movie nights. It is in black and white but I think that just adds to it's charm. All in all, it's a fun watch and you'll probably be humming to the music even after it ends.

    Julie Andrews at her most magical

    Julie Andrews is enchanting - perfect voice, charming presence and great acting. The campy routines of Kay Ballard and Alice Ghostly add humor to this production. The score, particularly as sung by Andrews, is one of the best

    A Lovely Night

    For years, Julie Andrews fans pined for the release of this 'live tv' original version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical...and here it is. The B and N review here is very accurate...yes, it looks its age, but the magic and the good taste of this production shine through every glorious black and white moment. The songs are unforgettable, as is "Our Julie", at the beginning of a legendary career.

    The Original Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella (1957 TV Show)

    This original Cinderella from the 1957 TV Show is chock full of videos. It includes not only the actual show, in all it's glory, but documentaries featuring Julie Andrews, Edie Adams, Kaye Ballard and Jon Cypher ("Prince Charming"). There are rare color photos and advertising art from the day and even Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein's appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show prior to the airing of Cinderella.

    All in all, it is unbelievable that these private archives were part of the Estate of Oscar Hammerstein II and the Family Trust of Richard Rodgers and are now available for the viewing that they deserve!
