Description

The 1914 film is written/produced/directed by L. Frank Baum and stars Violet MacMillan, Frank Moore, Vivian Reed, Todd Wright, Pierre Couderc, and Fred Woodward. Early in 1915, it was reissued under the title "The New Wizard of Oz". The film is loosely based on Baum's book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but in the screenplay Baum introduced many new characters and a large new story that later became the basis for the 1915 book The Scarecrow of Oz. Similar to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the Scarecrow's origin is revealed, although his life is now attributed to "the Spirit of the Corn", who appears as a conventional Hollywood depiction of a Native American. The Tin Woodman is found rusted stiff and oiled, but he is already Emperor of the Winkies. Dorothy is a slave to Old Mombi (Wells), who looks like W.W. Denslow's depiction of the Wicked Witch of the West. The Cowardly Lion is encountered briefly and battles The Lonesome Zoop, a character who appears in all three films. King Krewl is a cruel dictator in the Emerald City. He wishes to marry his daughter, Princess Gloria to a buffoonish pantaloon of an old courtier named Googly-Goo but she is in love with Pon, the Gardener's boy. A few elements are remade in in "Oz the Great and Powerful", directed by Sam Raimi and released in 2013. The remake stars James Franco as Oscar Diggs, otherwise known as "The Wizard of Oz". It also stars Mila Kunis as Theodora, Michelle Williams as Glinda, and Rachel Weisz as Evanora. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0004099 CHANGE BEFORE GOING PRODUCTIONS: http://www.cbgp.com http://www.facebook.com/changebeforegoingproductions http://www.twitter.com/cbgproductions http://www.gplus.to/changebeforegoing http://www.pinterest.com/cbgproductions Feature films added regularly to the channel.
