Vale – Ilene Woods

Ilene Woods - 1921-2010

Just a quick tip of the hat today, in honour of the original voice of Cinderella, Ilene Woods, who passed away last week aged 81. Woods came to fame as the voice of Disney’s animated princess in 1950, and while her career never reached the same heights again, she remained active well into her senior years. She was awarded Disney Legend status in 2003 for her work on Cinderella.

Woods died on July 1st, at a nursing home in LA, from complications of Alzheimers Disease.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney’s keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them.

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman.

As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney’s love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
