The review of this Movie prepared by Sarah Wright

Cinderella, the daughter of a wealthy widower, is abused by her stepmother and stepsisters, and forced to become a servant in the family chateau. She is kind, sweet, and intelligent, and is loved by all the animals, especially mice, which she protects from the stepmother's evil cat. The mice try to help her go to the Prince's ball, but only her fairy godmother's intervention works. Her stepmother, on to the fact that the girl is humming a waltz, imprisons the girl, and only the mice can get her to the Grand Duke to try on the glass slipper.
The review of this Movie prepared by Chi Che Soong

This film has the usual magical Disney animation in it. In this film, a young girl dreams of meeting Prince Charming and marrying him. Her fairy godmother makes it all possible by turning a pumpkin into a carriage and mice named Gus-Gus and Jacques into horsemen. The always-climactic scene at midnight in which Cinderella loses her glass slipper and everything goes back to the way it was, but she and Prince Charming end up falling in love and they live happily ever after. (Brandy and Whitney Houston would remake the film 47 years later.)
