The Real Work on Don Alan

Postby Pete Biro » January 20th, 2005, 12:39 pm

Just opened the mail and the two new issues of Private Studies, by Ron Bauer to hand.

All I can say is WOW! The 14 pages, with fabulous photos and drawings of "The Complete Don Alan Chop Cup" is all you could ask for and MORE.

THE REAL WORK on how Don loaded, got the laughs and set up for doing his classic routine. This is the first time all the subtle work has been published.

A must have for any close uppers worth their salt. A mere $15.00 for one of the greatest routines in table magic history.

The second releast is RNT II presents Ron Bauer's basic Cups & Balls technique.

This is well illustrated and as the late Milt Kort said, "This is one of the best and easiest versions I've ever seen."

I agree. And at $10.00 you will learn one of the most deceptive ways to do a final load I have ever seen. This alone is worth the price of the book.

Stay tooned.

The full Chop Cup routine WOULD have been published with all the details in the Don Alan book if Rufus Bumstead hadn't decided to abandon ship during production and the manuscript had actually been finished prior to publication.

Is the routine in the Bauer Manuscript the actual, complete routine?

If so, how do you know it is?

BTW-- who is Rufus Bumstead??!?

Wasn't Rufus Bumstead married to Blondie? If so he makes a great sandwich.

I think Dagwood Bumstead was married to Blondie.
