THE WIZARD is, indeed, a lost film. The negative was destroyed in a vault fire in 1937, and no copies of the film have surfaced since. So anyone who claims to have seen the movie should prove it or shut up. THE WIZARD was not widely shown, even in its day. The few reviews it received said the film was only mediocre at best. Definitely not the classic some would have us believe. However, like London AFTER MIDNIGHT, the film's publicity photos promise much, what with their hideous ape monster and scowling hook-nosed villain; that, alone, often leads modern day fans to assume the film is a classic. Would that it were.
