The Slipper and the Rose
Movie Quote Quiz

Fairy Godmother: I suppose I shall simply have to rise to the occasion and do something spectacular, but again. And spectaculars always take so much out of me... It was the same with Snow White. All the same, you young girls: never do as you're told! Men are much easier.

Fairy Godmother: You're not meant to understand it. You're meant to accept it. Graciously.

Dowager Queen: He can write what he likes, so long as he clears this room. There are too many people in it by far. Most of them not worth the candle.

Fairy Godmother: No one will recognize you for what you are. People seldom do.

Factual error: In the scene where Cinderella is in her new room at the Prince's castle, the roses prominently displayed in the foreground are brightly coloured Hybrid Tea roses (the pointy ones) which were not bred until the early 20th Century. In the 1700s (panniered skirts and powdered hair) the roses would have been of looser formation, with softer colours, e.g pink or cream cabbage roses. (These roses also appear in later scenes.)
