Cinderella goes to Hollywood

Okay, like most of you I enjoy movies with sound a lot more than silent stories, but hold on a minute till you hear about this one - it is very different. If you are old enough to have enjoyed daily comic strip fun in the newspaper and comic books from the news stand you will really, really like this story . . . If you enjoy funny, physical humor like I Love Lucy, you will fall head over heels for Colleen Moore as Ella Cinders, taken from a 1926 comic strip of the same name. Trust me, if you will agree to watch the first couple of minutes I guarantee you that you will be hooked and not look away from the screen until the ice man cometh . . . the second ice man. You see, Ella Cinders has two half-sisters - Lotta Pill and Prissy Pill - yup, I told ya this was going to be fun! The neighborhood ice delivery man is Waite Lifter - and believe me the names of the characters are just a hint to the fun that lies ahead. As you watch the classic fairy tale about the abused sister finding her prince mixed with the glitter and glamour of Hollywood you will soon realize, as I did, that this is a movie that could be re-made today without much change and still bring laughter and love to the audience. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with real melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the classic fairy tale in a wonderful 'Hollywood' style.
