In this reworking of Cinderella, orphaned Connie Harding is sent to live with her rich aunt and uncle after graduating from boarding school. She's hardly received with open arms, especially by her snobby cousin Barbara. When the entire family is invited to a major social ball, Barbara sees to it that Connie is forced to stay home. With the aid of her uncle, who acts as her fairy godfather, Connie makes it to the ball and meets her Prince Charming in Ted Drake, her cousin's boyfriend.Written by

Universal considered filming in three-strip Technicolor. Instead, the studio would first use this color process for shooting Arabian Nights (1942). Note: Universal already had co-produced, along with Gilbert & Sullivan Films, and distributed in the U.S. The Mikado (1939), a British picture filmed in three-strip Technicolor. See more »

This film is perfect in every way, from the story to the dialog, the costumes and sets, the cinematography, the direction, Deanna's beautiful singing, her comic timing, her touching sense of pathos, and the really marvelous cast. Helen Parrish as Deanna's vicious cousin, Eugene Pallette as her wise uncle, Kathleen Howard as her teacher, and handsome Robert Stack as her first love, all contribute to make the film the special thing that it is. Recommended without reservation!
