I came across this on Google video:

Jerry Andrus at 83 his Optical Illusions from HomeSchoolvideos.com

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 5051763891

It is 41 minutes long, which prevents me from viewing. ( I STILL have dial-up modem!) Does anyone know if this is a copyright violation? If it isn't, then I would like to get this on DVD. I seem to recall it being sold by H and R magic on VHS tape many moons ago, but have not seen it advertised anywhere else.
Also , any info on the contents of the video if possible. Thank you..Bruce

Contact Barry Brilliant, his web-site is listed. He's been doing a lot of things for Jerry.

You may also want to consider investing in the purchase of the 3 DVD set, "A Lifetime of Magic," which includes footage of Jerry presenting a number of his optical illusions.

When I directed and shot the 3 DVD Andrus set, I conceived of having Jerry lead us through a museum of his optical illusions the way Rod Serling hosted Night Gallery. I didn't edit the whole thing together, but you certainly got great views of all the big illusions and exposures of some of them.

This is one of my favorite disc sets. Richard, I forgot that you directed them. Impressive!

I produced the video you saw on Google. We filmed it the last day of the Dallas Close-Up Convention a few years back. The audience consists of mostly homeschooled children and some magicians. I had contracted strep throat just before the filming so it did not come out exactly as planned.

The video was posted to Google without my knowledge.

If anybody is interested in one of the remaining copies of the VHS tape I send them out post paid in the US for $20 and include a box of three "Eye Foolery" monsters as well until they run out. These sold for $15 back when.

You can order here:


Be sure to note Genii in the comments for the free box of Monsters.
