The Enchanted Glade
Credits, against an illustration of a witch. Captions throughout give the story. A group of friends climb into two cars outside an ivy-covered house and drive off down the lane. The witch casts a spell to the ground, and we see the group of friends heading towards her. She creeps around the hillside, casting spells to the group, and disappears into the trees.
