Slipper and the Rose, The

Musical version of Cinderella with Gemma Craven hoofing crystal boots at Prince Richard Chamberlain. Michael Hordern, Edith Evans, Annette Crosbie, Julian Orchard, Geoffrey Bayldon, Valentine Dyall, André Morell and a young Wayne Sleep are in there somewhere, as is an outgoing Margaret Lockwood, hooray! Bryan Forbes managed not to cast his wife in this, though to make up for it he did cast himself, his daughter Emma, and his dog. Still, nepotism aside, it’s corny, schmaltzy and as such absolutely perfect Sunday afternoon viewing with the old port and walnits.
