Audience Reviews for His Majesty, the Scarecrow of Oz
One of several Oz films directed by J. Farrell MacDonald and produced by Baum himself. It's no surprise then that it feels so close to the madcap spirit of the books. I haven't read any Baum stories in ages, but I recalled many of the elements here. But the film suffers from odd pacing and lengthy diversions (perhaps the results of a too-literal translation from page to screen). Some imaginative and clever effects, though.
Weird silent OZ movie which doesn't make much sense - things were certainly different back in 1914, weren't they??
Another very interesting take on the Oz stories. This was directed by the creator L. Frank Baum, so he knew what he wanted to do with htis instead of depending on someone else's ideas. This was one of the better silent film versions.
