Sorry for the super-late notice on this post!

In addition to Turner Classic Movies (TCM) airing the 1946 version of Beauty and the Beast tonight at 8 pm, they will also be airing the 1955 movie The Glass Slipper!

I worked all day and came home to a lovely comment from Reading Wolf about how The Glass Slipper would also be on TV tonight. Sorry I didn't notice earlier!

The movie airs at 10 pm on TCM.

It's directed by Charles Walters and stars Leslie Caron and Michael Wilding. Another classic movie I haven't seen before.

Glad I got to my DVR in time. I'm on EST, so the movie marathon starts in 4 minutes for me!!!

Will you be watching with me?

Summary from IMDB:

In a small pleasant European village, there is one unhappy person: Ella. She is despised by everyone, and mistreated by her step-mother and step-sisters. 

Out feeling miserable one day, Ella meets a handsome young man, who falls for her. He is really Prince Charles, the son of the Duke, but he tells her he is the son of the cook, and invites her to a great ball at the Duke's castle. 

A strange woman who lives in the mountains by herself befriends Ella, and dresses her up so she can attend the ball. She goes, and is a great success, but must run out at midnight. 

In her haste, she drops a single glass slipper. The Prince uses the slipper to find her.
