Synopsis
The fifth silent film based on the fantastical Oz books by author Frank L. Baum, His Majesty, the Scarecrow of Oz is the only one directed and produced by Baum himself. Small town Kansas girl Dorothy (Violet MacMillan) gets stuck in the Land of Oz and teams up with Princess Gloria (Vivian Reed), the gardener Pon (Todd Wright), the Scarecrow (Franke Moore), and the Tin Woodsman (Pierre Couderc). King Krewl (Raymond Russell) has hired the old witch Mombi (Mai Wells) to freeze Gloria's heart in order to force her to marry the wealthy Googly-goo (Arthur Smollet). When the Tin Woodsman cuts off Mombi's head, she gets mad and turns Pon into a kangaroo. The group sails down a river until they meet the Cowardly Lion (Fred Woodward) and loads of other creatures. Eventually they meet the Wizard (J. Charles Hayden), who sets things right. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

In addition to the fascination of seeing author Baum's own take on his world-famous stories, there is another historical footnote with HIS MAJESTY. Mildred Harris plays the role of the little boy, "Button Bright" -- she married Charles Chaplin three years later. She also appears in Baum's earlier MAGIC CLOAK OF OZ and over one-hundred other films.
-- Jonathan Marlow
