A magician summons up people (and demons) in a magic wreath.

I found this one lurking around on YouTube, as it is one of those that was not included in the recent Melies set. It’s a pretty standard Melies short; he hangs up a wreath and makes spirits appear, beginning with a demon which he quickly banishes. Of course, the final twist is that he makes himself appear in the wreath. All in all, a fairly standard entry in his oeuvre.
