    Includes:The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1910) The Patchwork Girl of Oz (1914) His Majesty, the Scarecrow of Oz (1914) The Magic Cloak of Oz (1914) The Wizard of Oz (1925) The Wizard of Oz (1933) The Wizard of Oz (1939) The Dreamer of Oz: The L. Frank Baum Story (1990) The Wonderful Wizard of Oz No synopsis available. The Patchwork Girl of Oz Patchwork Girl of Oz is one of a handful of extant productions from author L. Frank Baum's short-lived Oz Film Manufacturing Company. It was also the company's first release, and as such was carefully designed to entreat audiences into demanding additional "Oz" pictures. Patrick Couderc, who played the Tin Man in the later Baum productions, is here cast in female drag as the Patchwork Girl, brought to life by charlatan Dr. Pipt (Raymond Russell). Captured and by Ozma, queen of Oz (Jessie Mae Walsh, the Patchwork Girl helps the Queen release her subjects from an evil spell which has turned them all into stone (a plot device redeployed nearly seven decades later in Return to Oz. Mildred Harris, later the wife of Charlie Chaplin, appears briefly as Dorothy, while future comedy star Harold Lloyd can be briefly spotted as an extra. Patchwork Girl of Oz was released by Paramount Pictures. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide His Majesty, the Scarecrow of Oz The fifth silent film based on the fantastical Oz books by author Frank L. Baum, His Majesty, the Scarecrow of Oz is the only one directed and produced by Baum himself. Small town Kansas girl Dorothy (Violet MacMillan) gets stuck in the Land of Oz and teams up with Princess Gloria (Vivian Reed), the gardener Pon (Todd Wright), the Scarecrow (Franke Moore), and the Tin Woodsman (Pierre Couderc). King Krewl (Raymond Russell) has hired the old witch Mombi (Mai Wells) to freeze Gloria's heart in order to force her to marry the wealthy Googly-goo (Arthur Smollet). When the Tin Woodsman cuts off Mombi's head, she gets mad and turns Pon into a kangaroo. The group sails down a river until they meet the Cowardly Lion (Fred Woodward) and loads of other creatures. Eventually they meet the Wizard (J. Charles Hayden), who sets things right. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide The Magic Cloak of Oz No synopsis available. The Wizard of Oz Popular silent film comedian Larry Semon literally sold the ranch to secure film rights to L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz -- then proceeded to chuck most of the Baum story in favor of his usual broad slapstick antics. In Semon's version, Dorothy (played by Dorothy Dwan, aka Mrs. Larry Semon) is the long-lost princess of Oz. On Dorothy's 18th birthday, she is whisked from her farm in Kansas back to Oz by way of a convenient tornado. Along for the ride are hired hands Semon and Oliver Hardy as well as le and African American handyman G. Howe Black. To avoid being captured by the minions of the cruel Prince Kruel, Semon disguises himself as a Scarecrow, while Hardy, rummaging through a garbage heap, dons Tin Woodman garb. And so it goes until Dorothy and her boyfriend Prince Kynde (Bryant Washburn) escape from Oz via airplane. The chance to see a young Oliver Hardy, sans Stan Laurel may be the best reason to see this film. Otherwise, the more famous 1939 version remains the definitive filmization of this classic yarn. The Wizard is played by Charlie Murray, who is heaps funnier than ostensible star Larry Semon. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Wizard of Oz Not to be confused with the cinematic classic starring Judy Garland that would follow six years later, this animated short film is one of countless other celluloid adaptations of L. Frank Baum's best-loved story, The Wizard of Oz. Directed by Ted Eshbaugh, the Canadian film features no dialogue and tells the story of Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, and Tin Man's adventures in Oz with a mix of black & white and color animation. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide The Wizard of Oz The third and definitive film adaptation of L. Frank Baum's 1900 children's fantasy, this mu
