A great swedish close up magician, Gert Malmros (1934-1999) was invited by Philippe Fialho for a session in Paris with Fred Kaps, Brother Hamman och Danny Ray, 1974 if i remember correctly.
A "shorten" message from my friend Eddy Taytelbaum, Amsterdam regarding the videos with his long time friend Fred Kaps:
"Of course it is nice to see my dear friend
Fred Kaps doing several tricks that I have seen him perform live, but I must say that that it
takes a lot of patience to sit through them.
Take for instance the Gipsy Curse. So much talking before the trick begins, Ok, at the end the trick is good but in this way Magic
I said it before, Magic is time related, what seems to be good 20 years ago cant compete with today performers."
