March of the Wooden Soldiers 3D

 (1934)

March of the Wooden Soldiers 3D Blu-ray offers decent video and poor audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Ollie Dee and Stanley Dum try to borrow money from their employer, the toymaker, to pay off the mortgage on Mother Peep's shoe and keep it and Little Bo Peep from the clutches of the evil Barnaby. When that fails, they trick Barnaby into marrying Stanley Dum instead of Bo Peep. Enraged, Barnaby unleashes the bogeymen from their caverns to destroy Toyland.

March of the Wooden Soldiers 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

There has been a bit of confusion over these newer 3D offerings from Legend Film's 3D Classics imprint, including previous releases of The Three Stooges in 3D and The Best of The Little Rascals in 3D. Like those releases, March of the Wooden Soldiers in 3D offers both MVC (3D) and AVC (2D) encoded 1080p transfers in 1.34:1. While there is no option to play either the 2D or 3D version, the discs automatically recognize the playback equipment and boot the appropriate version depending on whether 3D capability is sensed. This new 3D release does not feature the original black and white version of Babes in Toyland that was included on March of the Wooden Soldiers.

As I mentioned in my review of the first release of this title, Legend typically does very good to excellent work in restoring older films, and they have sourced this March of the Wooden Soldiers from what appears to be a very good condition 35mm print in what I'm assuming is the full running time (if any scholar out there can provide documentary evidence of the difference between the claimed 79 running minute time and this feature's 77 minute-plus running time, let me know and I can update the review). While there are still flecks and scratches to be seen, the print has been cleaned rather well, and while there's little doubt that noise reduction has been applied, it hasn't risen to smeary, waxy levels. While the image is never crystal clear or eye- poppingly sharp and well detailed, it's definitely well above average for a public domain title sourced from a print. What may bother some videophiles are some issues with contrast, as well as recurrent registration and flickering issues. Overall, though, the transfer is remarkably spry considering the age and public domain provenance of the film. It's to Legend's credit that their colorizing process doesn't slather on slabs of impossible hues, and is in fact really rather subdued as far as these efforts usually go.

In terms of the 3D post-conversion, Legend, one of the forerunners in this technology, has once again done a largely admirable job, though the film doesn't really offer enough source material in terms of depth of field or framings to really totally justify the effort. When the film does offer an object or character clearly in the forefront, there is an appealing dimensionality, but a lot of this film is rather "flat" looking, obviously one of the limitations of its early vintage when camera setups were more challenging (a great example is the dolly into Mother Goose at the head of the film, where you almost feel like the camera is going to fall over from its bobbing and weaving). This particular effort is probably about halfway between The Best of the Little Rascals in 3D and The Three Stooges in 3D in terms of its depth and visual immersion. What's here looks fine, but there simply isn't a lot to work with.


March of the Wooden Soldiers 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Perhaps surprisingly, unlike the first release of March of the Wooden Soldiers (which featured only a lossy mono track delivered via Dolby Digital 2.0), Legend has gone the extra step by upgrading the audio on this release to DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (once again pumping out the mono track on two channels). Despite the common assertion that "lossless is necessarily better", the results here are decidedly mixed and ironically some may actually prefer the Dolby Digital version on the previous release, as it better masks the very audible hiss and brittleness that are very much in evidence on this track's high end. This lossless rendering also reveals more of the "warts and all" damage the track has endured through the years. While there may be some negligible boosting of the lower end of things, the midrange sounds decidedly boxy and narrow and overall this isn't an extremely pleasing sonic experience, especially in the musical moments which simply don't gain much if anything from the lossless offering.
