March of the Wooden Soldiers (Babes in Toyland)

This is my first Laurel and Hardy movie I’ve ever believed in as I believed in marching but real wooden soldiers!

I saw this for the first time, as I watched clips. This can have its title or known as ‘Babes in Toyland’. Based on the opera by Victor Herbert.

In Toyland, for where are your favourite fables and fairy tale stories are, two brothers are to pay Barnaby the rent for their home or else. They don’t want to disappoint their mother.

They even got fired at the toy factory for when they made an accident and a very big mistake. They were to make 600 toy soldiers at one foot high for Father Christmas. Instead and misunderstood, they made 100 soldiers at six foot high. They got busted and didn’t get the money to pay for the rent. While Tom and Mary were to be in love, Barnaby accused Tom as he wanted Mary. So they go behind the plans of Barnaby as these two try to save the day. Just when Mary was taken by Barnaby to a place for where bogeymen were, Tom, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy save Mary as they escaped. But the Barnaby and the bogeymen followed them and were causing destruction to Toyland.

That was when the best famous part comes. On the song, “March of the Toys”, they used the army of wooden soldiers as they saved Toyland! It made a great scene, in film history, as this was the very first version of “Babes in Toyland”. This was before the other versions as this is a great classic. “A+” for this!
