Movies Babes in Toyland (MGM 1934, Stan Laurel, OIiver Hardy) Published 7 months ago on October 11, 2018 A classic Laurel and Hardy comedy about two toy-making apprentices who live in Toyland. They’re fired from their jobs after they make 100 six-feet-tall soldiers for Santa Claus instead of 600 one-foot-tall soldiers. The duo do not know how they are going to pay their room and board to Mother Peep. Mother Peep’s daughter Bo is busy fending off the advances of evil Barnaby, who owns the mortgage on the Peep home. Laurel and Hardy save the day, rescuing Bo’s love Tom-Tom from the land of the bogeymen, and unleashing the toy soldiers on the bogeymen who run rampant through Toyland. Harry Kleinbach, the German-born actor who plays Barnaby, ‘the meanest man in Toyland,’ later changed his name to Henry Brandon and was an imposing villain in many films, notably Scar in John Ford’s The Searchers (1956). In 1961, the Disney company made a lavish version of Babes in Toyland, starring a post-Mousketeer, pre-Beach Party Annette Funicello as the Bo-Peep character. production details USA | MGM | 73 minutes | 1934 Directors: Gus Meins, Charles Rogers Producer: Hal Roach Cinematography: Francis Corby, Art Lloyd Editors: Bert Jordan, William H.
