This is one of Rogers and Hammersteins sleepers.
Leslie Ann Warren was so young and innocent in appearance, it was very refreshing, and who knew she could sing!
Stuart Damon was a great Prince,and another Wow for the singing!
As usual Jo Van Fleet was the perfect character actress, and made an excellent Evil Stepmother.
Although the parts were small, it was fun seeing Ginger Rogers and Walter Pidgeon as the King and Queen.
(Ginger still looked as if she were floating, when she danced)
Even though this was a Made-for-TV movie, it was very well done, sort of in the tradition of "Auntie Mame", where the sets were "stage-like". It really gave the whole film a different feel.
This is definately one of those old faithfuls, that you will want to sit around the TV with your kids and watch,if for no other reason, nostalgia.
At this point, most of the cast is either dead, or not active in the biz anymore, so it's really fun to see Lesley-Ann Warren, before her teeth were fixed and she became popular, and Stuart Damon before being the long-lived Dr. Alan Quartermaine of General Hospital.
R and H, you've done it again!
Do you know something we don't?
