The Slipper and the Rose

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.)

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

Dowager Queen: Is he still alive? I thought we buried him.

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.

More quotes from The Slipper and the Rose

Question: Why doesn't the King enjoy seeing his nephew (the Prince's cousin) when he arrives near the beginning of the film to congratulate the Prince?

Chosen answer: For the same reason everyone else is unhappy to see him: He's getting on their nerves!

Ioreth

Question: For 40 years I have wondered why there were two sets of slippers. In the scene after the ball and Edward is holding the lost slipper, the king remarks how small it is, he could have tried them, and they would have fitted. Later in the glass case we see the real small slipper.

Chosen answer: It's the same slipper, after failing to find Cinderella, the Prince erects that monument to his lost love.
