I do presume that the story of Cinderella is known to most of my readers, and the film follows pretty much the fairy tale with a few adaptations (the main adaptation being hinted at in the title), but I will do a quick synopsis anyhow:

Drella (Suzanne Sybele) lives with her stepmom (Patricia Mayfield) and her two stepsisters (Joan Lemmo, June Faith), who are all of course cruel to her. But still, Drella dreams of going to a ball and meeting the local Prince (Bill Gaskin), whom she dreams about night and day (but mostly night) ... good thing then, that the Prince dreams about her too, without actually having met her.

So the Prince has a Masque just to find her, and to this end, he invites all the maidens of his realm ... but of course, stepmom and stepsisters won't let Drella come ... good thing then that a fairy godfather (Sydney Lassick) just happens to stop by and turns ugly duckling Drella into a beautiful Princess, but only till the strike of midnight.

At the masque, the Prince naturally has only eyes for Drella, and they dance and dance ... until it strikes midnight, and Drella leaves in a hurry, with the Prince only being able to grab her golden bra (how he managed to do that without undressing her I'll never know), which is the only souvenir he's left with.

In his desperation the prince oges so far as to force every maiden in the realm to try on the golden bra, but the thing seems to fit none ... and of course, stepmom sees to it that Drella won't get a chance to try the bra on.

The Prince is about to be ready to give up his futile search for his dreamgirl when the fairy godfather once more intervenes and leads him to Drella while her stepmom is out ... and wouldn't you know it, the bra fits perfectly.

At a ball, the Prince announces his engagement to Drella, and wouldn't you know it, stepmom tries and succeeds in snatching the old King (David Duffield) for herself.


Totally tame by today's standards, the movie must have seemed quite daring back in 1964 for showing a few naked tits (not more). Apart from that bit of nudity though, there is little to make the film interesting, it's a very faithful (apart from the sexy bits) and unimaginative re-telling of the well-known tale garnered with a bit of rather pedestrian comedy and a few musical numbers that were terribly old-fashioned even when the film came out. It might not be totally without retro-charm, but there's also not much to recommend the picture for.
