The Magic Cloak of Oz
The Magic Cloak of Oz is a 1914 film directed by J. Farrell MacDonald, written and produced by L. Frank Baum, and co-produced by Louis F. Gottschalk. It's an adaptation of Baum's novel, Queen Zixi of Ix. The events of the film and the book take place in No-Land and Ix, two neighboring regions to the Land of Oz.
The music heard on this print is not the original score for the silent film, but rather is a hodgepodge of tunes taken from the 1902 Stage Musical of The Wizard of Oz. Those songs include "Just a Simple Girl From the Prairie", "The Traveler and the Pie", "My Little Maid of Oz", and "Phantom Patrol".
