Overview

Patchwork Girl of Oz is one of a handful of extant productions from author L. Frank Baum's short-lived Oz Film Manufacturing Company. It was also the company's first release, and as such was carefully designed to entreat audiences into demanding additional "Oz" pictures. Patrick Couderc, who played the Tin Man in the later Baum productions, is here cast in female drag as the Patchwork Girl, brought to life by charlatan Dr. Pipt (Raymond Russell). Captured and by Ozma, queen of Oz (Jessie Mae Walsh, the Patchwork Girl helps the Queen release her subjects from an evil spell which has turned them all into stone (a plot device redeployed nearly seven decades later in Return to Oz. Mildred Harris, later the wife of Charlie Chaplin, appears briefly as Dorothy, while future comedy star Harold Lloyd can be briefly spotted as an extra. Patchwork Girl of Oz was released by Paramount Pictures.
