Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” began as a made-for-TV movie that aired on CBS on March 31, 1957. The broadcast of “Cinderella” starring Julie Andrews was seen by the largest audience in the history of the planet at the time: 107 million people in the United States, representing 60 percent of the country’s population at that time. Due to its immense popularity, “Cinderella” was brought to the stage a year later by the The London Coliseum in England, who had honor of performing it live for the first time. In the United States, “Cinderella” began appearing onstage in 1961.

The 1965 “Cinderella” featured a cast as remarkable as the original: Ginger Rogers and Walter Pidgeon played the King and Queen; “Oklahoma”’s original Ado Annie, Celeste Holm, played the Fairy Godmother; Jo Van Fleet was the Stepmother with Pat Carroll and Barbara Ruick as her daughters; and Stuart Damon played the Prince. A young Broadway star-to-be, Lesley Ann Warren, played Cinderella. Taped for broadcast, this “Cinderella” premiered Feb. 22, 1965, and was shown on CBS eight more times through February of 1974.
