Cinema Dave  Swashbuckling ournalist and

A Christmas Favorite that has been ignored this year...

"Babes in Toyland," alias "March of the Wooden Soldiers," played every Thanksgiving on WPIX Channel 11 on Long Island, it was a family favorite. When we would visit relatives, the antics of Laurel & Hardy could be seen. My cousins cheered, and the grown-ups would show up for the battle with the boogie men.

We screen this classic for "Literary Cinema" a few years back, the reaction was similar for all the patrons. Maybe next year....
