“Impossible/It’s Possible” – Cinderella
Music: Richard Rodgers Lyrics: Oscar Hammerstein II
Cinderella’s fairy godmother uses magic to demonstrate that impossible feats are sometimes possible in this ravishing sequence. The Guinness Book of World Records keeps track of these feats, the first edition of which was bound on this day in 1955. All right, a pumpkin cannot turn into a carriage, but this version of the well-known fairy tale is an impossibly appealing musical fantasy.
