Storyline

Everything is in anticipation at the home of the widow Gibson. Her two daughters are anxious to make an impression with Lord Browning. Her step-daughter, Cinderella, is carefully kept in the background. While they are waiting, a storm arises and Lord Browning is overtaken by it. He seeks shelter in a fisherman's hut and learns of the Gibson family from the old fisherman. Mrs. Gibson and her two daughters and step-daughter, are caught in the same storm and they also take refuge in the fisherman's hut. Lord Browning, seeing them approaching, disguises himself in fisherman's clothes. The mother and her daughters enter very haughtily, and not recognizing him, are very patronizing and seem to be contaminated by having to accept the hospitality of the hut. Not so with Cinderella. She is a friend of the old fisherman, treats him very kindly and enters into conversation with Lord Browning. The next day, Browning, dressed as the fisherman, comes to Mrs. Gibson's to sell fish. He is harshly ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

One scene seems quite carelessly made
14 March 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Cinderella pictures have from the start an advantage over others in one of the best situations possible. But in comparison with others of its kind, this very improbable and not very carefully made story of an English nobleman and an American mamma with two daughters and a stepdaughter suffers. One scene seems quite carelessly made. It shows the Cinderella (Clara K. Young), slipshodly dressed, coming into a room where her mother and sisters, in stylish clothes, are seated. We haven't been prepared by any insight into her state of mind regarding her short skirt, and for a moment she seems slovenly and is cheapened. Lord Browning's attitude toward the girls (he had merely heard about them as Americans) is super-romantic, and Cinderella is also cheapened by her attitude toward him, whom she has also only heard of. The authoress is Josephine W. Crawford, and the producer, Van Dyke Brooke. Maurice Costello is Lord Browning, Julia S. Gordon is the American mamma, Flora Finch the oldest, and Leah Baird the middle daughter. Van Dyke Brooke is the fisherman. - The Moving Picture World, November 30, 1912
