4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but...., Sept. 6 2003
By 
Harmless Gryphon (Nowhere worth mentioning) - See all my reviews
This review is from: His Majesty the Scarecrow of Oz (Full Screen) (DVD)
This is a good purchase for $4.99, especially if you like the more unusual films to come out of the silent era, or any of the Oz books. It's a fun romp through Oz, and has some decent special effects.
The film itself has deteriorated substantially, and it appears no effort was made to restore it. That's understandable, especially for such a cheap movie. The bad part of this disc is the audio. The music is a mix of ragtime and various other types. It has some relevance, as the mood does change with the film, but that's about all. The voice-over for the title cards, on the other hand, is just wrong.
My conclusion: Buy the movie, but turn the audio off.

4.0 out of 5 stars L. Frank Baum directs as well as he writes, March 13 2003
This review is from: His Majesty the Scarecrow of Oz (Full Screen) (DVD)
This is a fun 1914 version of an 'Oz' book, directed by L. Frank Baum himself. There are some great special FX, (the 'freezing heart' is fantastic!), and the acting is fairly good as well. The music and narration on this edition, as it is on the 1925 version of 'Wizard Of Oz', is redone and not very well. However, for the price, this film is worth having! Great fun for children but requires an attention span, because it's not as 'flash-bang-zippo!' as modern films, because of no sound effects.

4.0 out of 5 stars I LOVED IT!!!!!, May 15 2002
This review is from: His Majesty the Scarecrow of Oz (Full Screen) (DVD)
I bought this recently, when i was about to watch it I thought it was going to be the stupidest thing i have ever seen. But after the first few minutes i loved it. The special effects were good (for 1914) The only thing i didnt like is the WEIRD music and the naration. Whats wrong with panio or organ music?
