I've mentioned before that Cinderella by the Brothers Grimm is my favorite fairy tale and of course I adore the Disney princesses but this isn't really one of my favorites.  Its story comes from the Perrault version and while the songs are good, I don't find them as catchy as the Alan Menken/Tim Rice songs of the 90s.  My favorite part of the movie is at the end, after the first slipper has been smashed, when Cinderella says, "But you see...I have the other slipper."  Lady Tremaine's face is classic and the duke is so grateful.  Of course, the tiny slipper fits Cinderella's foot and she gets to live and go marry the prince.  And because it's Disney, we know that she'll be happy with her prince rather than miserable.


  1. Great post! Cinderella was my favorite Disney princess when I was little.

    Thanks for stopping by our blog!

  2. Cinderella was my favourite childhood princess before I met Belle.:) Yes, Lady Tremaine's face in that scene is priceless - I could never get tired of it!

    Thank you for the post!

  3. I love that scene at the end too. I always used to love the scene where she sings A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes while all her animal friends are helping her get ready.
