Be Sure to See the Whimsical Woozy -- September 18, 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 ad is from the 26-September-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 like the picture of the Woozy.  It mentions that The Patchwork Girl of Oz "Will be released through the Paramount program on September 28, 1914."
