  • March of the Wooden Soldiers - Laurel & Hardy
    Verified Purchase

    This is one for nostalgia buffs. As a youngster in the 1950's I saw this movie a few times generally around Christmas season. Although Laurel & Hardy were before my time I always had a good laugh at their bumbling throughout this movie. I'm sure purest would lament that this colorized version is not true to the movie's history but its still L & H in one of their best. The boys are humiliated toy makers in Santa's work shop, who are loked upon as village idiots in part because Stan Laurel messed up a Christmas toy order for 600, one-foot wooden toy soldier, making instead 100, six-foot wooden toy soldier. Weaved throughout the movie are nursery rhyme characters complete with Little Bo Peep and her sheep and others who all live with Old Mother Hubbard in her shoe home. The evil character desires to marry Bo Peep and tricks his way into getting her to agree to marry him after her love interest is arrested for killing one of the three little pigs (who the evil character actually kidnapped instead). The boys accidentally mess up the evil character's plans and in his anger he releases his hord of animal-like subjects on the village to capture Bo Peep and bring her to his lair for the wedding. The creature attack on the village becomes chaotic but the boys rise to the occasion and eventually win the day after Stan Laurel winds up and unleashes the 100, 6-foot wooden soldiers who chase off the bad guys. Of course this is a very dated movie and no one under the age of 6 is going to be worried about the outcome of the pitch battle, but its also a fun look back at a time when life was simplier and the things that captured our attention were made without all sorts of graphics, etc. If you're in your 50/60's this my take you on a journey back to when mom, dad, and the kids all went together to the theater for a double feature on a Saturday afternoon. Re-living those 60-year old childhood memories makes this purchase an excellent value for me.

  • Positive: both B&W and color on one DVD
    Verified Purchase

    Just like the other DVD I purchased "Yankee Doodle Dandy", I am well pleased. I purchased this one as well, one for my brother and one for myself. I was thrilled to find that this offered both the original Black & White version, as well as the colorized version. I excited about looking into the catalog for additional old movies.
