Babes in Toyland

Babes in Toyland

It might look to some as dated, it might feel just a bit out of touch…but the fault would lie in the watcher and not with this film.  This movie provided some of my all time most precious watching times, especially around the holidays.  Starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, Babes in Toyland, produced in 1935, is the “thrilling” comedic tale of two master toymakers, Laurel and Hardy, trying to save “Mother Peep’s” home and, simultaneously, protect Little Bo Peep from the dastardly efforts of, wait for it, “Barnaby Crookedman.”  C’mon, who cannot love that?
