Description:
Wizard of Oz is a 1925 silent film directed by Larry Semon, who also appears in a lead role. The first major film adaptation of L. Frank Baum's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, this film features a young Oliver Hardy as the "Tin Woodsman."

Plot

A toymaker (Semon) makes a Scarecrow doll for his granddaughter, who asks him to tell her the story about Oz. He tells her about how the Land of Oz was ruled by Prime Minister Kruel (Josef Swickard), after the baby princess of Oz was mysteriously snatched away from her crib. Kruel's despotic rule is aided by the manipulative Ambassador Wikked (Otto Lederer), who is the originator of many of Kruel's ideas; the aide Lady Vishuss (Virginia Pearson); and the Wizard (Charles Murray), who only knows parlor tricks and not any actual magic. The people have begun to revolt and their leader, Prince Kynd (Bryant Washburn), demands the return of the princess so she can be crowned. Kruel, however, knows that once the princess returns his rule over Oz will end, so he sends Ambassador Wikked on a mission to prevent this from happening.

Meanwhile, in Kansas, Dorothy lives on a farm with her relatives. While Aunt Em (Mary Carr) is a kind and caring woman, Uncle Henry (Frank Alexander) is a cruel man who constantly yells and berates Dorothy. He also abuses his farmhands Snowball (credited to G. Howe Black, a stage name for Spencer Bell, who frequently appeared in Semon's films), Hardy and Semon when he feels they are not doing their work....
