A Delightful Fantasy Brilliantly Produced -- October 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 ad is from the 03-October-1914 edition of Moving Picture World.  Their first movie, The Patchwork Girl of Oz was featured on the cover and in an ad mentioning that it was released on 28-September-1914.  The ad mentions their second movie, The Magic Cloak of Oz.  Be sure to click on the images to see larger versions.
