Philippe Thank you for the info I did not know it was Marlo who published this trick, someone had told me it was in Vernon's Inner Secrets one of the volumes.Or is it there as well?

Sorry but Vernon IS the creator of Follow the Leader and published it first in 1932. Marlo (and others) did only variations.

Sorry, it was a joke, because pretty much all Marlo did was variations.

Ignore me.

Just a suggestion because I know it wasn't requested, but Tamariz performs an excellent version of Follow The Leader on his 'Lessons In Magic' DVD set which is well worth checking out!

There's a Follow The Leader routine in the Perverse Magic thread of this forum on July 1, 2007.
