Fragment from Cinderella is a 1950 American animated film produced by Walt Disney and is based on the fairy tale “Cinderella” by Charles Perrault. However, “Cinderella stories” can be found in cultures throughout the globe. This is the twelfth feature in the Disney Animated Canon. The film had a limited release on March 4, 1950 by RKO Radio Pictures. Directing credits go to Clyde Geronimi, Hamilton Luske and Wilfred Jackson. The songs were written by Mack David, Jerry Livingston and Al Hoffman. Songs in the film include “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes”, “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo”, “So This is Love”, “Sing, Sweet Nightingale”, “The Work Song”, and the opening credit song “Cinderella”.
The film was a massive critical and commercial success upon release and reinvigorated the Disney company when they were nearing bankruptcy after a loss of over $4 million from the then recent failures Pinocchio, Fantasia and Bambi. The film’s “classic” status and success continues to this day.
It is considered one of the best American animated films ever made, as selected by the American Film Institute. A live-action adaptation of the film was released in 2015.
