Zolushka cinderella ranevskaya russian film 1947
Cinderella (Russian: Зо́лушка, Zolushka) is a 1947 Soviet musical film by Lenfilm studios.
It is a classical story about Cinderella, her evil Stepmother, and the Prince, but told with caustic satirical undertones by the Soviet writers Evgeny Schwartz and Nikolai Erdman. Many phrases from the movie became aphorisms.
Yanina Zhejmo played young Cinderella while being 38 years old.
