Storyline

L. Frank Baum would appear in a white suit and present his live actors, slide shows and films as a live travelogue presentation of his popular fantasies. Highlights include Dorothy being swept to Oz in various ways, such as with back-projection tornadoes and storms in a chicken coop. Lack of financial backing forced the show to fold after appearing in only two cities, despite being a critical and commercial success. Written by Scott Hutchins <scottandrewh@home.com>

Trivia

The film portion of the presentation contained 60 minutes of material based on Wizard, Land and Ozma of Oz, a 20-minute preview of Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz (while Gillespie and Remus sold books in the lobby), which had not yet been published, and 40 minutes of material on John Dough and the Cherub. In addition, there was approximately one hour of live stage acting (with the actors in the film appearing and interacting with L. Frank Baum) and magic lantern displays. See more »
