NEW JIMMY GRIPPO'S VIDEO(S)

Postby Grippo's Wish » April 10th, 2013, 12:30 am

Hello everyone,

after much trouble, effort, time and (some) money, I'm extremely proud to anounce you that I posted a new Jimmy Grippo video on youtube. There are two parts. I hope you enjoy it!

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQKtEkcXOkI

Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnz71b4Si_Q

enjoy!

Beautiful. Having only seen the Orson Welles footage, great to be able to watch this. Love the respect and affection the host Merv Griffin shows towards the art. No doubt a different era.

Thanks for the share.

Now, whatever happened to the Grippo book....

PapaG: Was there to be another book published of Grippo's work? I am only aware of the Geno Munari book.

Just re-read Geno Munari's excellent piece on Grippo and his index.

Wasn't there supposed to be a Munari/Racherbaumer-written book? It's been discussed several times here over the last ten years.

I thought there was supposed to be a new book, too. Is it just me or is there a Roy Orbison look to Jimmy?

If I'm reading that other thread correctly, the real work on the Grippo index hasn't ever been fully tipped. Is this correct?

Sure sounds like it--the Miller/Wilson book contains "Geno Munari's adaptation of the Jimmy Grippo Index" (cf. http://www.houdini.com/en/card-magic/68 ... index.html )

Not only that, but the other thread also has this statement:

"Jimmy's book is out of print and I do not want to reprint it. It does not have his real material in it."

It seems neither of these publications has the true goods.

Jimmy Grippo's index is fully documented and photographed in the revised reprint of Ron and Charlie's book. Here is the link;
