Thanks for posting these, Craig.

I noticed that Alan Shaxon used a salt shaker during his cigarette holder vanish.

I always thought that specific bit originated with Fred Kaps and was a signature of his.

Does anyone know who originated this or was it considered "public domain" in those days?

I'm curious how long some of these clips will stay up, especially if YouTube has a policy on showing actual death. In the collection called 'Disasters captured on film' or similar, there are a fair few examples of Darwinism in action.

One of them is this clip of Franz Reichelt flying from the Eiffel Tower. I first saw this in a display on the first level of the Tower in the late 80s, and it stuck in my mind (since I was skydiving a lot in those days) that the closing shot is someone measuring the depth of the crater...

Oh, you can get away with all kinds of things if you call it "news."
