"Carson Entertainment Group (CEG), which owns the archive of the late-night
host's 30 years on "The Tonight Show," announced today that it has digitized
all 3,300 hours of existing footage from Carson's reign and created a
searchable online database for media professionals.

"While the library is only accessible to those who license clips for
professional purposes, CEG plans later this year to put out 50 full-format
shows on DVD and post a rotating group of 40 to 50 historic clips for
general consumption on JohnnyCarson.com."

Does anyone know if Johnny Carson performing Cards to Pocket is available anywhere? It is referred to in one of Bill Malone's videos.

There was a time when you could purchase copies of any Carson episode from the Carson Entertainment Group. They had a website where you could enter the name of anyone who had ever been a guest and it would give the airdates for each of their appearances. If I remember correctly, for $99 you would get two copies (vhs) of any one episode. I was interested in the two episodes on which Mike Skinner performed, but was not willing to pay $200. They no longer offer this service.

Given that Johnny Carson loved magic, what tricks did HE like to perform.

"the high point of his military career was performing a magic trick for United States Secretary of the Navy James V. Forrestal."

What trick?

On the 60 minutes profile, he did a stop trick for Mike Wallace, dealing cards until Wallace said stop (psychological force).

"the high point of his military career was performing a magic trick for United States Secretary of the Navy James V. Forrestal."

The Leamer biography mentions this, but doesn't specify the trick.
