It's a whirlwind of laughter, pathos and illusion as Emerald City gets another visit in this silent adventure from 1914! It’s all about Ojo, a munchkin boy, and his Unc Nunkie, who venture out to Emerald City in search of food. Along the way they meet a feisty mule and a strange doctor who claims to have invented a life­-giving powder. All work together to bring to life the bizarre Patchwork Girl! Film buffs take note: Oz creator L. Frank Baum served as one of the film’s producers, while silent film mogul Hal Roach appears as the Cowardly Lion! (BW)
