This is not magic-related, but I wanted to share, in case folks were interested: For the 'old movie' fans on the forum: Channing Pollock was the writer employed to rewrite and cut the German film "Metropolis" (1925, directed by Fritz Lang). You can read about his revisions on the Net; he s...

Re: Nudity in Magic

I recently re-read "The Last Magician" by Bruce Elliott. The lead character begins one act by producing a live Martian girl, nude, then magically produces clothing for her, piece-by-piece. (I hope I'm remembering correctly). It sounds like a good effect!

Re: Not Black Art, but . . .

Interesting video!

On a similar theme, at least, I recently found this picture of Louis Brooks (1920s &30s movies):

Re: What Magic Item did You Get for the Holidays?

I picked up some items from the Ring sale (local) that my wife then gave to me: 1) Marc De Souza's Chain Gang - I learned a lot from Pop Haydn's DVDs, and figured there'd be some variation here 2) Spring loaded fox - I couldn't resist, even tho it isn't really magic -) 3) 2nd copy of favorite book &...

Re: Quieting a reel

To the original poster: did you have much trouble getting your reel apart to work on it? My Breese reel seems to be a sealed unit; I'd be hard pressed to open it without destroying/bending the case - but that may be my unfamiliarity with the right tools for the job. Have any of the magic magazines, ...

Re: Quieting a reel

I've been curious about this, while watching various "Silk Thru X" performances. Many (not all) include the magician making a masking noise at the time the reel operates - a whistle, a "Whoosh", etc. It doesn't seem to take much sound to cover - one lecture, the reel sound was qu...

I'm glad it worked out for you. James is a pretty good guy, and I know he was proud of his Kickstarter project. It's not the sort of tool I have a use for, but I figure other folks would. -)

It looks like the Genii November 1992 is the one you want. MagicPedia also lists Genii 1937 August.
