Audience Reviews for The Magic Cloak of Oz
This one is so scattershot and so simplistic that it feels like it was written by children instead of for them. Something this goofy and surreal ought to be more fun, but it's hard to get into. Violet MacMillan, who was a rather homely Dorothy in His Majesty, seems more appropriately cast as a boy in this one. All the people in animal costumes made me think of The Wicker Man.
This was alright, but it really jumped all around and it didn't keep my interest all that much. I get a kick out of the people dressed as animals.
L. Frank Baum was a producer and writer for these early film versions of his stories. They are impressive because the original author of the books was instrumental in bringing his vision to the screen. This one has some imaginative characters and involves some of the lesser known neighboring lands of Oz from the books. However, I thought it was the weakest of the Baum produced silents.
