Now Ready! Another Big Winner -- November 12, 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 10-October-1914 edition of Moving Picture World. Their first movie, The Patchwork Girl of Oz was released on 28-September-1914. The ad mentions their second movie, The Magic Cloak of Oz, and what proved to be their third and last movie, The Last Egyptian. Be sure to click on the images to see larger versions.
