Thrills of the Honest Sort -- August 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. This double page ad is from the 29-August-1914 edition of Moving Picture World.  It refers to their first two movies, The Patchwork Girl of Oz and The Magic Cloak of Oz. I'm glad the acting is "Thoroughly Adequate."
