Cheryl ‘Rainbeaux’ Smith IS “Cinderella!”
When I was growing up, I was such a movie fan that I would save newspaper ads for films I saw – or in this case, really wanted to see:
This is a newspaper ad for the film from a Seattle newspaper, which I still have…I love the “sales pitch” they use:
“You will see ALL of Cinderella and the other 29 girls when you see the film!”
That’s straightforward, isn’t it?
Celebrating the Career Of Cheryl ‘Rainbeaux’ Smith…
The Cult Movie Queen Cheryl ‘Rainbeaux’ Smith acted in a number of great cult films, and sadly had a tragic personal life.
I want to celebrate one of her best role, when she starred as Cinderella – although this time she’s a very “Adult” Princess! More about Cheryl’s career and tragic death later, but let’s get into the “x-rated” take on a fairy tale legend!
An “X-Rated” Cinderella!
This 1977 musical comedy got very good reviews at the time, because it a ribald take on the fairy tale: Cinderella with the help of her “fairy” godmother, is granted heightened sexual prowess to win over Prince Charming!
In the “adult” twist on the story, there’s a LOT more than a slipper involved in this search for a Princess!
Here is the trailer:
In fact, the story of a horny Prince seeking his Princess includes a LOT of “fair maidens” eager to please!
This being the “X-rated” version of the fairy tale, it’s not a slipper the Prince must try to fit – instead, this lucky Prince must have sex with every woman in his kingdom in order to identify his beloved’s “snapping’ pussy!”.
Yes, that’s how he remembers his first encounter!
This was how they made exploitation films in the 70’s!
Of course, the Prince beds all of the fair maidens as he searches for his Cinderella, so by the time he reaches her house, he is so exhausted that he must be brought in on a stretcher, and Cinderella must approach him cowgirl style. Recognizing “the snapper,” the Prince declares Cinderella to be the girl he loves, and there is a sexy “happy ending!”
I was glad I came across the original newspaper ad I saved, because it allows me to showcase once again the tremendous talent of Cheryl “Rainbeaux” Smith:
Cheryl was one of the stars of “Caged Heat”, and she was in a lot of mainstream films as well – and was in the all-girl band The Runaways – that happened briefly when two of the band members left…she was an accomplishedMusician which makes her life all the more tragic…because unfortunately, her story is also a cautionary tale about Hollywood.
She had issues in the 80’s and died tragically.
Here’s a look at her career – including when she appeared in Playboy as Bill Bixby’s magic assistant!
She appeared in cult films and many mainstream films as well, which I take a look at – and I also look at the circumstances of her tragic death – you can see the full story by clicking here:
The terrific cult Actress Erica Gavin also starred in “Caged Heat” – and yes, like the rest of the cast, she spent a lot of time in the shower:

Remember, this “adult” take on “Cinderella” wasn’t unusual:
The absolutely gorgeous Kristine DeBell starred in the X-rated “Alice In Wonderland” – and there was a “XXX-rated” version as well!
