March of the Wooden Soldiers

 (1934)

March of the Wooden Soldiers Blu-ray offers decent video and mediocre audio in this still 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 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Legend Films has made its name with its colorizing technique, and this AVC encoded 1080p Blu-ray (in 1.34:1) from Legend offers both the original black and white and colorized versions of the film. (Note that odd numbered screencaps are from the black and white version, and even numbered ones from the colorized version. While I attempted intentionally not to replicate actual frames, so that you could get a wider array of screencaps to base your judgments on, I did attempt to limit my choices to the same scenes for reference sake). 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, with a lot of the film being overly milky white, 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. Purists of course are going to want to stick with the original black and white version, but the colorized version isn't as horrible as it might have been, and I tend to be someone who really doesn't like these colorized versions at all.


March of the Wooden Soldiers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The film's original mono soundtrack is offered in a standard Dolby Digital 2.0 mix that certainly suffices, but which still shows some of the ravages of time. The overall mix is quite boxy, as is so prevalent in these still early days talkies, and there's abundant hiss audible throughout the film. The musical numbers have fairly narrow highs and lows, though midrange frequencies have weathered the decades rather better than might be expected, which also means that the bulk of the dialogue sounds rather good, all things considered. There's no outright damage to report here, other than the expected occasional pops and cracks that come with age. This is certainly not going to set any audiophile hearts on fire, and a lossless LPCM mono track probably would have been preferable (despite the fact it would have introduced a whole new layer of hiss), but this Dolby track gets the job done in a minimally acceptable way.
