Oz Film Company's First Release -- June 18, 2014
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 item is from the 17-October-1914 edition of Motography. It talks about the release of their first film, The Patchwork Girl of Oz, which "made a triumphant and initial bow to New York film-goers at the Strand theater during September's last week."
