Fun Size Review: Cinderella (1914)

Mary Pickford and her real-life Prince Not-So-Charming Owen Moore co-star in a very traditional take on the famous fairy tale. Definitely has its quirky charms (evil gnomes!) but mostly fails to make itself magical enough to stand out from the crowd.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

Glass slipper fitting, grand reunion, you know the drill.

If it were a dessert it would be: Sugar Cookies. Nothing wrong with it but it’s not terribly exciting either.

Read my full-length review here.

Availability: Released on DVD by Milestone as a double feature with Through the Back Door, another Pickford feature, and by assorted companies as a standalone disc. I recommend the Milestone edition.

    1. I agree, it was just a generally dull affair. I think it’s quite possible that Moore’s abusive behavior was taking a toll. She wrote in her autobiography that she considered suicide while she was married to him.
