March of the Wooden Soldiers (1934)

When the meanest man in town Silas Barnaby, threatens to evict the Widow Peep out of her shoe, he makes a deal that if Bo Peep agrees to marry him, then he will forget the mortgage that is due. But Bo Peep doesn’t want to marry him because she’s in love with Tom-Tom, the piper’s son. So it’s up to Ollie Dee and Stannie Dum to come to the rescue, with the life-size wooden soldiers that they make in the toy factory by mistake. Despite the fact that this film was made in the thirties, it never ceases to get old and never ceases to be funny. Starring Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Henry Kleinbach, Florence Roberts, Charlotte Henry, Felix Knight 9/10
