2 editions published between 1910 and 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Squeezed into one reel are young Dorothy and her dog Toto in rural Kansas; the cyclone that carries them to the land of Oz ruled by its 'humbug' Wizard; her faithful companions the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Woodman; and the good witch Glinda and a Wicked Witch of the West, dubbed 'Momba' here (a variant of Mombi, the witch in Baum's second Oz novel, The marvelous land of Oz, 1904). Missing are the book's munchkins and magic slippers, but added are such comic touches as the unionized women workers of Emerald City. As it survives, the film begins abruptly with a glimpse of Aunt Em, Uncle Henry and the Kansas farm, which would originally have been introduced by a title"--Early motion pictures / Kemp R. Niver
