The ‘Anti-Semetic’ message behind ‘March of the Wooden Soldiers’

‘The March of the Wooden Soldiers’ was produced by Hal Roach and significantly altered from the 1903 operetta, ‘Babes in Toyland’.  Looking further into Mr. Roach, we learn that he, in 1937, conceived a joint business venture partnering with Vittorio Mussolini, son of the fascist leader of Italy, Benito Mussolini, to form a production company called R.A.M Roach and Mussolini!
This proposed venture with Mussolini, whose father, as we all know, was very friendly with Adolf Hitler, enraged Jewish-owned MGM. When MGM intervened, Roach was forced to pay his way out of the venture. This “embarrassment” led to the end of Roach’s relationship with MGM.
But in the final analysis, Hal Roach had the ‘last laugh’. Although very few have ever picked up on the symbolism, Roach’s goose-stepping wooden heroes stand tall as a classic “up-yours” to the powers-that-be who control Hollywood and Banking (Barnaby’s mortgage business).
And that’s something that no can take away from the clever producer.
