Cardini is the only magician I can recall who is actually BETTER than his reputation.

Think of how much modern manipulators owe him.

The two major vaudeville manipulators were Cardini and Frakson. They both worked the Palace (Frakson first) and had great success.

Interestingly enough, Cardini became the most copied magician of his time until Channing Pollock came alone. Frakson was never duplicated.

Be on the lookout for Johhn Fisher's big book on Cardini from Todd Karr's Miracle Factory.
