first i must disagree with the review of your last member on his appraisal of henry brandons role as mr. barnaby. my wife and i were personal friends of henry brandon and it was his favorite role and his first. he maintained a friendship with stan laurel and oliver hardy until their passings. he was scheduled to appear at a laurel and hardy convention in july of 1990 with ms. charlotte henry and my wife and i were to meet him there. his recollection of the production sets were of vivid colors. when he attended the preview of the film he was disappointed because all he saw were greys and black and whites. he wished that hal roach would have shot the film in color even two strip technicolor. when talking to him about his long career always babes in toyland was foremost in his mind. the film holds up well today with another generation of children ( my grandkids included} and adults enjoying this trip into the world of fairytales and make believe. recently it has been released in computerized color, but i prefer the original black and white; but i think henry brandon would be happy to see his supreme villiany in the color version. a wonderful film, laurel and hardy at their best and the birth of a cinema villain for decades to come, my friend henry brandon nee kleinbach. yours at the movies joe rinando.
