Oz Film -- We Are Just Completing Our First Feature -- January 13, 2013

The Oz Film Manufacturing Company, located in Los Angeles, was formed in 1914 to produce movies based on stories by L Frank Baum, the creator of The Wizard of Oz.  The company made some movies, but was not a financial success. The ad is from the 18-July-1914 edition of Moving Picture World.  It states that their first feature, The Patchwork Girl of Oz, is just being completed and it invites feature exhibitors to "secure it at an early date."  The handwriting is an interesting touch.  The images are by John R Neill.
