Family Flicks Film Series: Babes in Toyland
Co-presented with UCLA Film & Television Archive
Recommended for ages 8+
Beloved comics Laurel & Hardy star in this whimsical fantasy, set in a magical land where Tom Thumb, Bo Peep, and the Three Little Pigs dance and sing outside Santa’s workshop. When dastardly Silas Barnaby tries to evict the Old Woman Who Lives in a Shoe, Stannie Dum and Ollie Dee use their wits and a battalion of wooden soldiers to set things right. A tuneful holiday treat for the whole family. (Dirs. Gus Meins and Charley Rogers, 1934. Run time 77 min.)
The Family Flicks Film Series is copresented by the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Matinee screenings for families and film buffs, featuring new and classic films from around the world.
