Okay, I won't tell you that it is. But if I don't tell you that it is, then you won't that it is because it is. Sorry.

No, you are not the ONLY person interested in this film. I am, also. In fact, I have it. However, the film is still colorized. (Oops. I wasn't supposed to tell you that!)

Well, rich, I broke down and watched about ten minutes of "March of The Wooden Soldiers." I don't know if this will make you feel better or not, but the transfer is very good, even though it is in color. The picture is sharp and exhibits very little, if any, wear on the print. The sound is quite adequate for an old mono film from the mid 30's. The disc also includes the original trailer and two short films--1. Hardy explaining how he got the name "Babe" (1950) and 2. Laurel at his home in a silent color film from 1961 as he's clowing around with his Oscar. (The quality of these is not very good, but then the souce material isn't so...)

I'm a fan of older films, especially if they're black and white, and this colorization nonsense doesn't sit well with me at all, BUT I'm a bigger fan of Laurel & Hardy so I bought the disc. (As far as being a colorized film, this is one of the better attempts at the butchering of films I've seen. (I've suffered through 3 colorized fiascos in the past because some "friends" insisted that I watch them.))

The company releasing this disc is GoodTimes and their products in the past haven't been that impressive, but from the look of this disc it looks like they may be getting their act together.
