Winnifred Greenwood takes the part of Cinderella’s mother, while her father is played by Frank Weed. The wicked stepmother and the two step-sisters are played by Lillian Leighton, Josephine Miller and Olive Cox, respectively. T. J. Carrigan makes a most charming Prince Charming, and Charles Clary does splendidly as King Claudius. Adrienne Kroell as Princess Yetive, Jessie Steavens as the Dowager, George Cox as secretary to the king. Will Stowell as captain of the guard, Frank de Sharon as the milk vender, Frank Weed as the baker, all do excellent work, while Baby Griffin makes a most jolly and pleasing fairy godmother. Then, of course, there are courtiers, guards, heralds, court ladies, peasants, etc., galore.
The simple old tale of Cinderella has been wonderfully elaborated. The Selig version exhibits many beautiful dramatic details that will come as a pleasant surprise to those whose memory still clings to the original. The story as arranged by Henry K. Webster is a big modern rapid-fire drama, with all the sweetness and simplicity of the old nursery tale. It was adapted and produced by Colin Campbell at the Selig Chicago studio, and fills three reels of film.
