March of the Wooden Soldiers has always been a holiday favorite of mine and thus I was saddened when the local NY stations seemed to shy away from featuring the film on Thanksgiving. Interested in obtaining the best available version of the film I first purchased the recommended Goodtimes and Passport reissues of the film. A few days later I came across this most recently relased Legend edition. Last Sunday I compared the three DVDs. No question, while I at one time might have agreed with earlier reviews claiming the Passport B&W version as the most acurate representation of the film and the Goodtimes version as the best of the color incarnations, they both now pale in light of this latest Legend release. First, the Legend package includes both restored B&W and colorized versions of the film. In both cases, the transfers are crisper, brighter, present higher detail resolution and are cleaner overall. In B&W the detail of Barnaby's coat, Stannie's legging patches and all relevant graphics have been enhanced. The compromise here might be the bit of edginess that goes along with such detail enhancement, but in reality its a small price to pay. As for the renewed colorization process, the detail resolution will have you marveling at the nuance of refined color detail here not even remotely evident in the Goodtimes edition. Second, let me reiterate, you've got two films here, not one and each one included is BETTER than any other previous MOTWS release ever released!! In short, Legend wins hands down as today's new MOTWS holy grail. Anyone interested in a coupla slightly used Goodimes and Passport DVDs?

I'm 24 years old and grew up watching Laurel and Hardy with my dad. It's refreshing to watch a classic comedy without worrying about covering my children's eyes when they watch it.

We grew up watching this movie, which aired immediatley after the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. What a great way to spend the morning out of school, waiting for all the wonderful treats baking in the oven. I plan to start this tradition with my own family now!

One of my favorite Laurel & Hardy movies & love the 30's operetta music. Fun to watch the pioneer days of special effects (we've come a long way!). BUT. Movie is completely spoiled by colorization, so don't buy it unless you can find in B&W. Don't know why, but color wrecks it. Anybody know where to get it in B&W?

I watched this movie as a child (non-colorized) and it scared me to death. I waited every Christmas just to see this movie but unfortunately I usually caught the end of it. I bought the movie on VHS more than 15 years ago and delighted in seeing my nephew cower from the boogey men. Our favorite part is when the toy soldiers march through Toyland and the little mouse commandeers a hot air balloon to help save the day. When the marching soldier theme plays as the soldiers are activated, I cannot help but get up and march along with them. I love, love, love this movie and it puts me in the holiday spirit like nothing else. I am so glad it is out on DVD, especially since I cannot find my VHS tape.

Laurel and Hardy's best movie. Great for the entire family to watch. This is a classic, well worth buying as a gift or for yourself.

March of the Wooden Soldiers is a classic and we love it except for the part that we didn't realize that it wasn't in color, but we still love it.
