A Wonderful Visual Reference Source

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

One of the ways to learn about magic, especially showmanship, presentation, etc., is to watch the greats at work. This is a wonderful link to many, many of those performers. Enjoy! (I know I have).

Thanks Clay. I was surprised to see a "Chung Ling Soo" clip posted. Turned out to be a German sounding rocker using Soo's name and advertising slogans ("Gift of Gods..." etc) to do illusions in what appears to be a theme park or outdoor concert setting. Anyone know who that is?

Saw that link and was disappointed that it wasn't really Soo (at best I thought it might be an excerpt from the magi bio series). But all the other clips I viewed were as represented. CHS
