Fun Size Review: Ella Cinders (1926)

It’s Cinderella for the 1920s! Colleen Moore is a put-upon waif who enters a motion picture beauty contest and wins. She finds fun, fame and fortune in Hollywood but who will be her Prince Charming?

Colleen has never been cuter. Features some excellent sight-gags (including the famous and acclaimed eye-crossing scene) and a cameo from Harry Langdon.  Beloved for a reason.

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

Cinderella finds her Prince Charming and he mistakes her film role for real life, “rescues” her and carries her away from movieland. She doesn’t mind one bit.

If it were a dessert it would be: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip. Takes a familiar favorite and gives it a modern twist.

Availability: Released on DVD and Bluray.
