As Good As Money, Brains, Patience and Experience Can Make It -- March 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 08-August-1914 edition of Moving Picture World. It has a nice photo of Mr Baum, a nice drawing of Ozma of Oz, and a remarkably complete cast list. Be sure to click on the image to see a larger version.

I've seen bits of the silent Oz movies, and they are quite creepy.
