Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The clear slippers seen in the show were constructed such that Lesley Ann Warren was able to actually dance in them. However, they were made of plastic, not glass. Ordinary glass would have shattered, but safety glass would be strong enough.
  • The first take of Lesley Ann Warren's song {"My Little Corner"} had to be rejected because she was crying so hard she couldn't be understood. The director told her to lighten it up a bit.
  • The production was rehearsed for ten days and shot on tape in three days. All of the singing was live and was not dubbed in later.
  • Lesley Ann Warren owns her princess crown from this role. It was for sale at a Vermont costume shop and her husband bought it for her on eBay.
  • The white dress that Cinderella wears to the ball was so heavy that after 12 hours of shooting, Lesley Ann Warren was unable to move her shoulders and had to be injected with a muscle relaxant.
