Just watched this again on disk and find so many great elements in it. Julie is gorgeous, and in incredible voice. She was still doing "My Fair Lady" in Broadway at the time. Jon Cypher (later of "Hill Street Blues") is very hot as the Prince. Check out his butt in the ballroom number. Very tight pants and a bubble butt! DL favorites Kay Ballard and Alice Ghostley are divine as bitchy step-sisters Portia and Joy. Dorothy Stickney and Howard Lindsey are cute together as the Queen and King. I guess they did "Life with Father" on Broadway for a long time and were much beloved. Check out the male supporting cast. Not a str8 guy in the bunch. They must've got all available Broadway chorus boys to appear. And in those tight pants, you can see quite a few baskets. Daring for 1957! It is so much better than the 1965 remake with Leslie Anne Warren, and let's not even discuss the Whitney-Brandy disasterous 2nd remake! Can't believe the the R&H estate wouldn't release this for so many years. The quality isn't the best, but the performances more than make up for it!
