Cinderella 1957 TV Cast: New Photos Surfaced from the MWB Vault
In between performances as Eliza Dolittle on Broadway and in London in the hit show My Fair Lady, Julie Andrews endeared television audiences as the princess with the glass slipper in this musical retelling of Cinderella (1957), courtesy of Richard Rodgers for the music and Oscar Hammerstein II for the book and lyrics. The special, broadcast on March 31, 1957, attracted more viewers than any other productions on television, with an estimated three-quarters of the country’s population riveted to the small screen on the night of the broadcast.
