The (Silent) Wizard of Oz

Mark Evanier, a writer out in Hollywood whose terrific blog I read, had a post today about the silent 1925 film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz and its star, Larry Semon. I knew Semon, although not well-known today, was a big star back in the '20s, and Mark explains a little bit about why. So, feel free to go over and take a look. And if you want to see the movie, and don't already have it on DVD (and if you have any recent multi-disc release of that other version of The Wizard of Oz, you very well might), it's on Turner Classic Movies tonight at midnight EST.

Hi, I wanted to let you know about our project if you have not heard about it yet. Toto's grave site was destroyed to build a freeway. We want to get a granite marker for Toto in the Pet Memorial Park in Calabasas. Go to our facebook page for all the info. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Toto-Canine-Movie-Star-Memorial-Marker/122059101185330
