The main actress could be Dorothy Phillips, if so the film should be "Aschenbrödel" from 1916 with Joseph W. Girard and Joseph Granby.

The company FITA FILM has produced several short fairytale films for children. Together with the BING company for toys (based in Nuremberg) they have produced sort of home cinema kits for children like displayed in the Nuremberg toy museum: http://www.europeana.eu/portal/search.html?query=who%3ABing-Werke+AG%2C+Verlag+%26+Verlag+Bing-Werke+AG+%26+Fita+Film

I have this film in my collection. It looks to be complete and comes in it's original carboard 'FITA Films' box.
The tint of the film seems to be more 'brown' then Yello.
