On March 31,1957, composer Richard Rodgers and lyricist Oscar Hammerstein produced a live, made-for-television version of Cinderella, the classic rags-to-riches story of a young woman oppressed by her wicked step-family. 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. ~ Tracie Cooper, All Movie Guide

Tremendous collection of talented performers by MBreslau September 8, 2012 - 6:54 AM PDT
Rogers and Hammerstein - talented perfectionists. Many actors/singers with experience on the live stage - excellent choices. A live broadcast with a large cast (including children!), a large stage crew, many sets, a small stage, and only two rehearsals - and it went off flawlessly.

That said, the broadcast was in color but the DVD is in black-and-white, with visual noise and scratches, and out of focus too. If these defects annoy you, stay away.
