A beloved fairy tale that saved Disney from bankruptcy, "Cinderella" is still one of the company's best animated features.

That said, I had forgotten how much the basic story was embellished by Disney. Actual plot points, such as the fairy godmother, the transformation, etc. take up very little screen time. I'm guessing the antics of the mice take up three times the amount of screen time, …

Why is this not as respected as it should be.  It is so old and still so precious!
