I recall watching some Jerry Lewis movies when I was a child while visiting my Aunts house. I was entertained. As I grew older I found that Jerry Lewis became lost in childhood memories. However, one late night I was watching television and this movie was on. I had missed the beginning, and had to go to bed before the end, if I hadn't I would have been up to 5:30. I thought this movie was sooo cute, that I just had to order it. And it was worth it. I love the Cinderella gone upside down plot of this movie, and Jerry is an adorable jem. Perhaps I was a fan all along, but this movie had to remind me of it. This movie inspires me to see more of what Jerry has to offer and perhaps view some more of his movies as a grown up! A child grownup that is, who always roots for the underdog!

Jerry Lewis fun!

When I was in 4th grade, a hundred years ago. and we lived in Maryland, when my birthday came I got to take the whole party to this movie! So, to me it was not only funny, it was special. I'll never forget sitting in the theater with all my little girl friends, in our best birthday party dresses and white shinny leather shoes, and hair bows, watching with enchantment.

Pass the popcorn and watch this movie with kids, or your poker buddies, it's fun! Jerry Lewis plays the male version of Cinderella, has a fairy God-father, has evil step brothers. He is sweet, funny, but also has feelings. Poor Cinderfella, when they are mean to him! But, it all works out in the end.

No cursing or nudity - which sure is a relief! We have grandkids over a lot here, so, we like our assortment of good family movies. You should too!

What a treat to watch this Jerry Lewis gem from December,1960! It's still a joy to catch this movie with all the slapstick and sight gags galore. Count Basie and the Orchestra were in top form in this movie. Leiws did a super job in the retelling of the classic fairy tale! I know you won't be dissapointed!!!

Made primarily as a Christmas attraction for family audiences, CINDERFELLA (1960) stars Jerry Lewis in a gender-bending spin on everyone's favourite fairytale, co-starring Judith Anderson and Ed Wynn.

Fella (Jerry Lewis) lives with his overbearing stepmother (Judith Anderson) and two stepbrothers (Henry Silva and Robert Hutton) in his dead father's Beverly Hills mansion, where he's treated like a servant--and a klutzy one at that! Forbidden to attend a party being held in honour of the visiting Princess Charming (Anna Maria Alberghetti), Fella's eccentric Fairy Godfather (Ed Wynn) steps in to lend a helping hand...

Unless you're a Jerry Lewis fan (and there really is no 'gray area'), you won't entirely appreciate his performance in CINDERFELLA. Lewis was given lots of free rein with his performance in this movie, and the constant mugging sometimes causes the feather-light story to become bogged down. Anna Maria Alberghetti provides a sweet Princess but her role is fairly minor. Judith Anderson ("Rebecca", "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof") does manage to turn the stepmother into an ultimately sympathetic character, something you don't really get in any other 'Cinderella' movie.

The DVD includes some fun outtakes and bloopers, plus a commentary track with Jerry Lewis and his friend, singer Steve Lawrence. (Single-sided, dual-layer disc).

Jerry Lewis was busy in 1960, capitalizing on his popularity with "Visit to a Small Planet," "The Bell Boy," and this movie, as well as singing the title song for the movie "Raymie." While "Cinderfella" is less than many of Jerry Lewis's best movies, it is family friendly and enjoyable kooky fare.

Jerry Lewis is Fella. His father has passed away and left the house to his stepmother, played by Judith Anderson. Of course, Fella has two rather vain and greedy stepbrothers, Maximilian (Henry Silva) and Rupert (Robert Hutton). As with the original story of Cinderella, everyone treats Fella poorly. Since the stepmother is running out of money, and since they believe Fella might know where his father hid millions, they decide to be nice to Fella. There is a lengthy scene at an excessively long table that soon becomes annoying. Fella keeps changing coats as he alternately tries to eat and tries to serve his stepmother and stepbrothers. However, when Fella tries to light Maximilian's cigarette, the attempts are one of the gems of this movie.

One day everyone hears that Princess Charming, played by beautiful Anna Marie Alberghetti, is coming to visit with the purpose of finding a husband. We know that Fella's fairy godmother is going to show up. Oops, make that fairy godfather, in the form of Ed Wynn. Ed goes through a story about how the point of having Fella marry the princess is to counter the story of Cinderella. Actually, that part of the movie is tedious and unnecessary. During Ed's attempt to convince Fella that he is a real fairy godfather he makes Cinderella (Nola Thorp) appear.

There is the necessary scene at the ball where Fella appears in an outfit that looks a bit like a movie usher's uniform (the pants have a stripe down the side).
