The (First) Wizard of Oz

Any discussion of the modern film industry will invariably end up with a lamentation of its reliance upon remakes and reboots.  Such discussions tend to forget that this is not a new trend in film.  Many classics, like the Boris Karloff Frankenstein and the Judy Garland The Wizard of Oz are themselves remakes.  Courtesy of, I present the oldest surviving film adaptation of the latter, the 1910 silent film, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
