The Tin Woodman, framed by light bulbs, does a little dance, leaps and retrieves his axe from outside the frame, chops down a tree that turns into various objects, grabs a heart emblem from the corner, and goes to the Emerald City at night with Toto. He goes to the edge of a cliff, where he meats an Asian spirit who gives him a heart shape that becomes a kite that hooks to him with a cane. This is followed by approximately ten minutes of kaleidoscopic images, including a man's hands, a dancing girl, and a cutout of Krishna. Written by

This film was intended to be a part of a larger work that would be mainstream by Harry Smith
standards. The project was aborted, and became two shorter works, Number 13
(1962), which is still in the vaults, unprocessed, and this film, Number 16. See more
