If this is the RICO I think we are all talking about from the Magic Circus tapes...WOW, what a great show!
He is the inspiration for the style and method I use for my chandelier production. Marvin Roy was the first person I had seen do this production and I fell in love with it. Since I was not using an assistant, I needed to find another way that did not need to be hidden behind a table or stand. I started scouring videos from the past and found this one with RICO.
Someone once told me that when they were filming Magic Circus with RICO's portion...the first take did not take. I guess the camera was not on or something. They told him they needed to do it again and he immediately rolled out an identical set and did a second flawless show "on tape". The crew was amazed "twice". :eek:
