"March Of The Wooden Soldiers" (1934) Provincetown, MA

PostWed Nov 15, 2017 10:02 am

Hey All,

Tomorrow night November 16th, I will be screening a nice super 8 Niles Print of "March Of The Wooden Soldiers" (1934) with a super 8 print of "Parade Of The Wooden Soldiers" (1933) with Betty Boop.

"Babes in Toyland" is a Laurel and Hardy musical film released on November 30, (1934). The film is also known by the alternate titles Laurel and Hardy in Toyland, Revenge Is Sweet (the 1948 European reissue title), and March of the Wooden Soldiers (in the United States)

Based on Victor Herbert's popular 1903 operetta Babes in Toyland. the film was produced by Hal Roach, directed by Charley Rogers and Gus Meins, and distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The film was originally produced in Sepiatone, but there are two computer colorized versions.

Although the (1934) film makes use of many of the characters in the original play, as well as several of the songs, the plot is almost completely unlike that of the original stage production. In contrast to the stage version, the film's story takes place entirely in Toyland, which is inhabited by Mother Goose (Virginia Karns) and other well known fairy tale characters.

"Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" is a (1933) Fleischer Studios animated short film starring Betty Boop.

The instrumental title theme, "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" (also known as "Parade of the Tin Soldiers"), was composed by Leon Jessel.
