Featuring Georges Melies, Georges Melies, and a special surprise guest appearance by Georges Melies
Country: France

A magician splits himself into two and then produces a living head for our wonderment. Then the devil shows up and ruins everything.

Wait a second – I thought Melies always played the devil in his own movies! How can he be the devil when he’s already on screen? In fact, how can he be the devil when he’s already on the screen twice, for that matter? Wait a second…I think I just answered my question. Short, witty and enjoyable.
