As much as I adored Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, I enjoyed Cinderella, too. It’s a classic story. The Technicolor is stunning. The music is amazing!
I think my favorite characters in this movie are Jaq and Gus, followed by the Fairy Godmother.
The film marked the launch of the Walt Disney Music Company. The success of the movie allowed Walt Disney to finance several productions, both animated and live-action. He also established his own distribution company, entered television production, and began construction on Disneyland, which opened in Anaheim, California in 1955. Something called the Florida Project was also started, which is now known as Walt Disney World.
The movie was nominated for three Academy Awards – Best Sound; Best Music, Scoring of a Musical Picture; and Best Music, Original Song (“Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo”).
Come back tomorrow for a new movie!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
