The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella

 (1976)

The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In the Kingdom of Euphrania, Prince Edward wants to marry for love, while his parents seek a political union. Elsewhere in the kingdom, beautiful Cinderella mourns the death of her father and is cruelly abused by her stepmother and stepsisters. But then the King announces a ball to help his son choose a bride, and practical Fairy Godmother knocks on Cinderella's door. A musical re-imagining of the classic fairy tale.

The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Slipper and the Rose was shot in anamorphic widescreen by British cinematographer Tony Imi (Enemy Mine). I have been advised that the film recently underwent a restoration at Pinewood Studios, from which this 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray has been taken. The disc is produced by specialty publisher B2MP and is being released through Inception Media.

The Blu-ray image is stunning: clear, sharp and detailed, with no noise or distortion and a fine, natural grain pattern that conveys a truly film-like appearance. The range of colors is remarkable. Costume designer Julie Harris told director Forbes that she "almost" ran out of colors by the end of the production, and the wide range of the palette is fully displayed, especially during the ball sequences, but also in Cinderella's coach, the royal crypt and in unexpected locations like Fairy Godmother's "office". The blacks are deep and solid, as can be seen in a night-time departure by coach late in the film.

The only flaw in the presentation is an occasional flickering of the image, which is undoubtedly a source-based limitation, probably caused by shrinkage or stretching of the element. It's a fleeting issue and hardly worth complaining about, given the impressive quality elsewhere.

The average bitrate of 26.20 appears to be sufficient to handle the elaborately choreographed dance routines without artifacts, especially given the black bars required by the wider aspect ratio.


The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Slipper and the Rose received both mono and four-track stereo releases. The latter is presumably the basis for the lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 on the Blu-ray. The track delivers clear and intelligible dialogue and equally clear renditions of the pre-recorded songs, which have been well-mixed to match the dialogue levels and tonal quality. The orchestral accompaniment (with scoring by Angela Morley) is pleasantly musical but not so overwhelming as to distract from the lyrics or the action on screen. The film does not feature complex or gimmicky sound effects, so that the rear speakers are primarily used to open up the soundstage and support the front.

A two-channel PCM mix is also included. In addition, there is an alternate DTS-HD MA 5.1 track, which I sampled but could not immediately distinguish from the main mix.
