Leslie Caron, whose portrayals of graceful gamines set aglow Gigi, An American in Paris and Daddy Long Legs, dons Cinderellaâ€™s fabled footwear for this dance-and-fantasy-infused retelling of the fairy tale. Reunited with her Lili director Charles Walters and screenwriter Helen Deutsch, Caron moves from sooty drudge to radiant belle of the ball with pluck, resourcefulness and the aid of a loopy â€“ and larcenous â€“ fairy godmother (the delightful Estelle Winwood). Cinderellaâ€™s transformation is everything a young girlâ€™s heart could desire. But the grandest magic is saved for two Roland Petit ballets that Caron, joined by the Ballet de Paris, turns into extravagant on-screen joy. For witty, family-friendly enchantment, The Glass Slipper is a perfect fit.
