Real Secret's Article in October Issue

In the article it is stated that they have supplied editable PDF files of the envelope used in the "Wager of the Month" Trick. No sure what this means as there were no pdf files available in the on-line edition and certainly no cd came with the magazine containing the files. It would be ni...

Re: The "Magic" of Slydini vs The "Best" of Slydini

Hi, I was working in the stock room at Tannen's when they published that book. The leather bound books came in with the incorrect title. They were supposed to be, "The Best of Slydini...and More," but of course, the title said, "The Magic of Slydini...and More." As I recall, Ton...

Re: Magic Mountain in the Catskills

I also recall Jack Adams doing a one man show as Merlin. I can't recall where it was but remember the performance. I did read the Al Flosso book but it only mentioned the Pine Hill establishment and did not really get into any detail. Its a shame that this endeavor is in effect "lost" in m...

Re: Eric DeCamps Pure Magic – A Performance of Contemp

If I could only "conjure" up the strength to travel 3 hours from the Catskill Mountains to the wild and wicked streets of NY City....Hope it's a rousing success.

Re: Chris Angel Store

I just went back to the web site and checked the description of the Masterminds DVD. I noted that it states that this item is available for pre order only. I believe that I was confused by the fact that my order form says it was shipped on August 31. Had it stated "pre ordered" etc. I woul...

Re: The Vanished Man

I am amazed, to say the least, that not one person responded to this post. From all of the history buffs that read this forum, surely there must be someone who can tell me if this illusion is factual or just an amalgum of principals. I am also amazed that this was never even questioned in Richard's ...

I would also like to be added to the list of those interested in the purses. These are very difficult to find and the one reason I have not attempted to play with the routine.

Perhaps you never got to the third tape where Mr. Burger speaks extensively about the care of the his hands. It's hard to believe that anyone would make a negative comment about this truly educational and inspirational video set. You must be one miserable and negative person. Get a life!!!
