Looking for Her Fairy Godmother: The singer who provided the voice of Cinderella in the animated film has filed a $20-million lawsuit claiming that Disney violated her contract by producing videocassettes of the classic. Ilene Woods Shaughnessy, who in 1948 was paid $2,500 for “Cinderella,” said in the suit that her contract forbids Disney from making copies of the movie for sale to the public. At 22, Shaughnessy performed such songs as “So This Is Love” and “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” for the movie.
