From 1957 :: “Cinderella” Television Broadcast

Finally, I have Jon’s work from the 1957 live television broadcast of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA. I’ve been after some high quality stills for you and I finally got them. I have to apologize for the lesser quality of the screencaps and some of the production material, however, I was limited to the quality of the DVD. Unfortunately this hasn’t been remastered for a Bluray release and I’ve found nothing denoting there will be one. Sad really considering the milestone this original broadcast has in television history. This aired live on CBS on March 31, 1957 to massive ratings, massive for that time. According to Jon who of course plays our Prince, after the airing he walked out onto Times Square in New York to empty streets. May I say, Jon never looked more dashing. The line he cuts in his dancing, costume and his fine honey-dripped voice leaves much to a girl’s heart to desire in a Prince to wish for. The way he takes Julie Andrews into his arms and eyes makes us all swoon for the day our prince does come. Until that time, Jon can be that placeholder. I know for me he’ll always have a place in my heart. I”ve also included the soundtrack for your listening pleasure. Click on the iPod and open in your preferred listening application. The soundtrack is available on iTUNES. CINDERELLA also stars Howard Lindsey, Dorothy Stickney, Alice Ghostley, Ilka Chase, Edie Adams, and Kaye Ballard.
