Ojo (Violet MacMillan) the Munchkin boy (who's easily recognizable as a girl though) and his guardian Unc Nunkie (Frank Moore) pay a visit to the magician Dr Pipt (Raymond Russell), who is in the process to bring a patchwork girl (Pierre Couderc) his wife Margolotte (Leontine Dranet) has made to life, but when he succeeds in doing so, he accidently puts Unc Nunkie, Margolotte and Danx (Richard Bosson), the fiancé of his daughter Jesseva (Bobbie Gould) into suspended animation - and to bring them back to life again, he needs some ingredients he doesn't have, among others a six-leafed clover. So he sends Ojo and Jesseva off to Emerald City with the Patchwork Girl to fetch the clover, and Jesseva takes her miniaturized fiancé with her ...

On their way, Ojo and Jesseva run into Jinjur (Marie Wayne), who immediately falls in love with miniaturized Danx, steals him from Jesseva and reports Ojo and Jesseva to the guards for having stolen a six-leafed clover, a big no-no in Emerald City, and soon enough they are arrested, only the Patchwork Girl can escape, and ultimately she can fetch Dr Pipt, bring him to Emerald City, and get Danx from Jinjur. And after Dr Pipt explains what this was all about and brings Unc Nunkie, Margolotte and Danx back to life, everybody is set free and only Jinjur put to trial for having stolen Danx ... oh, and the Patchwork Girl gets the Scarecrow (Bert Glennon) in the end.

 

Quite obviously, this is a rather childish film following the logic of the fairy tale - which is ok though because the film was quite obviously made for children. Also, some of the costumes and special effects are rather crude, which was to be expected though considering the film is from 1914. On the plus side, some of the costumes and sets look pretty nice, even inventive, and there are some nice stop motion sequences in this one. Not a masterpiece, certainly, and not timeless in any way, but quite entertaining if you are into early fantasy moviemaking.
