Suzy Wandas (1896-1986) performed magic with her mother as "The Wandas" in European vaudeville, presenting magic and playing violin while balancing on a slack rope. Perhaps the finest female manipulator of her time, Suzy (born Jean Van Dyk in Belgium) married Dr. Zina Bennett in 1959 and moved to Detroit, where she died in 1986.
This DVD contains the only existing footage of Suzy Wandas performing her sleight-of-hand. In these 1960s live performances and home movies, she presents advanced card productions, card fans, and other manipulations, as well as an array of stage magic.
You will also see an interview with Suzy at her home in Detroit; effects with giant cards by her husband Dr. Zina Bennett; an interview with her friend Clare Cummings; and Bennett's clips of Neil Foster, Dorny, and Chang in the 1960s.
ON SALE for only $25 (regular $35)...till July 31 only!
