The Daintiest Darling of Them All -- July 15, 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 12-September-1914 edition of Moving Picture World.  It refers to their first movie, The Patchwork Girl of Oz, as "5000 feet of joyous film" and says their second film, The Magic Cloak of Oz, has just been completed.
