Give your birthday child the gift that keeps on giving.
Walt Disney's feature length animated movie Cinderella was originally released in 1950.
Ilene Woods provided the voice of Cinderella and Eleanor Audley voiced the wicked stepmother. And by the way, Eleanor Audley can now be heard as the voice of Madam Leota in the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland and Disney world.
The year Cinderella was released it received an Oscar nomination for best musical score including the catchy song “Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo. "
Cinderella holds up very well, even by today's standards.
Cinderella lives under the constant cruelty of her unsympathetic stepmother who treats her like a slave. And to make matters worse, Cinderella is constantly teased and tormented by her two stepsisters.
But through it all, Cinderella maintains a kind and loving heart which she generously shares with the local birds and animals while she dreams of a better life for herself.
Then with the magical help of her fairy Godmother, Cinderella's life begins to change dramatically.
With a wave of her magic wand
The fairy godmother transforms Cinderella into a vision of beauty and sends her on her way to the Royal Ball where she meets and falls in love with the handsome Prince.
But as the clock strikes midnight
