An early screen version of one of Baum's famous "Oz" tales. This installment focuses on a little boy and the old man who cares for him, and their travels to a fantasy world. There, a shifty magician creates a child from an eldritch powder and rags -- the "Patchwork Girl." This mystic, though, can also turn people to stone. When he petrifies the boy's loved ones, the child follows an unearthly trail to find an antidote.
