Abstract
Best known in the canonical versions by Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, Cinderella is the widely distributed tale type classified as ATU 510A in the The Types of International Folktales. The Tale of Cinderella is said to be the story that has most often been made into films and TV series. There are not only film adaptations but also interpretations on the theme of Cinderella in many genres: romantic comedy, drama, horror film, psychological drama, adventures etc. From the beginnings of film history it is possible to find silent adaptations of the Cinderella story in black and white. This paper gives an account of some American film adaptations of the Cinderella story. The silent version of Cinderella, directed by the American film director James Kirkwood, appeared in 1914. “A Kiss of Cinderella”, by Herbert Brenon, came out in 1925. In 1926 Alfred E. Green offered his own rendition of the Cinderella story in “Ella Cinders”. In 1939 appeared an American musical film “First Love” by Henry Koster, starring Deanna Durbin. The film is about an orphan who is sent to live with her wealthy aunt and uncle after graduating from boarding school. Her life is made difficult by her snobby cousin who arranges that she stay home while the rest of the family attends a major social ball. With the help of her uncle, she makes it to the ball, where she meets and falls in love with her cousin’s boyfriend. In the film criticism, almost all films with Audrey Hepburn are hold as Cinderella stories. Hepburn’s glamorous makeover in films such as these have made her the model for the cinematic Cinderella, a role to which she might partly owe her status as a cultural icon in the Western world. The paper deals with films such as The Sound of Music (1965), Sabrina (1995); Pretty Woman (1990); Ever After: A Cinderella Story (1998); Maid in Manhattan (2002) etc
