This saucy French adaptation of the Cinderella legend stars America exotic dancer Joan Warner as the heroine, here named Evelyne. The story is updated to 1930s Paris, with Evelyne aspiring to become a famous musician. She gets her chance in an unexpected manner when a "fairy godmother" allows her to lead an all-girl band at a fancy nightclub. Featured in the cast are several entertainers who'd previously appeared with Warner in the Casino de Paris revue. These worthies display a bit more flesh than was customary in American films of the period, which explains why Cinderella was extensively trimmed before its U.S. release.
