Type: Fantasy
Rating: 3 Stars 3/5
Colour: Black and white / Part hand coloured / Silent
Director: Georges Melies

This is Georges Melies version of the Cinderella story, though at just over 5 minutes it only contains some of the key elements of the story. The film is notable though for being one of the first films with a story, the first known to have colour (parts of the opening scene are hand coloured) and the first to use fade transition between scenes. Although this is a pioneering film from Georges Melies it is the 1914 version with Mary Pickford which set the standard for this period.
