Proudlock's Sympathetic Silks

Edward Bagshawe

Proudlock's Sympathetic Silks by Edward BagshaweNow you, too, can present this award-winning silk routine in your show.

Here is a beautiful routine using two sets of three silk scarves that magically knot and unknot themselves "in sympathy" with each other ... even from across the stage. Best of all, you can do this with your own silks, as they contain no hidden pockets, sewn-together pairs, or similar fekes.

Edward Proudlock's Sympathetic Silks are a joy to behold, no less to the magician than to the uninitiated beholder. That it was a feature of Proudlock's act for 15 years is a testament as to its beauty and strength. Anyone who...

Blindfold Message Reading

Robert A. Nelson & B. W. McCarron

Blindfold Message Reading by Robert A. Nelson & B. W. McCarronArguably the most convincing - and simple - means of performing a sealed billet reading act.

There has always been a consistent demand for a good billet reading routine that can be presented under practically any circumstance, yet has sufficient effectiveness to accomplish its purpose. This method, we feel, meets these requirements most effectively. The means of presentation are varied and elastic. For instance, unprepared envelopes and slips of paper are passed to spectators to write their questions and name thereon. These are folded by any spectator and sealed within the envelopes. The...

Scarne Thinks Again

Ian Baxter

Scarne Thinks Again by Ian BaxterDr. Jacob Daley was the man behind the pen, writing up John Scarne's Think-A-Card, published as a U.F. Grant Exclusive back in 1938.

Daley was really fired up about this highly effective mental test from the ingenious Scarne: "You are about to become the possessor of a rare and beautiful gem in mental magic" he enthused. "Simple in its modus operandi and yet so tremendously effective...an almost perfect demonstration of mind reading."

Scarne, a universally recognized gambling authority and highly skilled sleight of hand artist, had crafted a gem indeed, with two spectators and the performer involved in a successful...

Scripted #21: Add a Number

Larry Brodahl

Scripted #21: Add a Number by Larry BrodahlThe plot of the Add-A-Number effect doesn't lend itself to the magical performer, as the audience knows that they're watching tricks, not psychic phenomenon, which means that the presentation of "seeing the future" isn't as effective as it could be.

Plus, the method is closely tied to the revelation. How could you predict a number unless you somehow knew what everyone would write or you switched the numbers?

This script - with a huge boost from Mel Mellers - fixes that problem by changing the plot from a prediction, into a "message from an impossible location".

Laughs, mystery, and...

Susy and the City Slickers

Jack Lamonte

Susy and the City Slickers by Jack LamonteThis is a close-up novelty that you can print yourself and which can be done anywhere at a moment's notice, a cute bar stunt with comedy, plus a touch of mystery. You can do it as a table trick, or in fact anywhere you can get an audience. An ideal pocket trick. Or you can print the provided sheet as large as you want and perform the trick for a larger audience or on a stage.

An illustrated square of paper is shown and the pictures of "City Slickers", "Susie" and "The Wolves" are described with amusing patter as the sheet is folded into a small package. With one single cut the folded paper...

Life Savers and Dollar Bill Mystery

Devin Knight

Life Savers and Dollar Bill Mystery by Devin KnightIf you like the effect of bill in lemon, but not all the mess it creates, then this is for you. It's a borrowed bill to impossible place, with the spectator given multiple choices.

Five sealed rolls of Lifesavers are placed in a candy dish and left in full view of the audience at all times. A dollar bill is then borrowed from any spectator who reads off the serial number of the bill while the performer writes it in full view of the audience on a whiteboard. Whiteboard with the serial number is left in full view so that all may see it at all times. No miscalling of numbers here, as the spectator...

Berland's Bill Tear Secrets

Samuel Berland

Berland's Bill Tear Secrets by Samuel BerlandPerhaps the best torn and restored bill effect the magical world has ever seen.

A magical inspiration that comes once in a blue moon. A sensation of the I.B.M. and S.A.M. conventions. After you've read the following effect, you'll say it's impossible. And so will your audience, when they see you perform this bill tear.

Effect: The performer reaches into his wallet and removes a dollar bill. To preclude the possibility of exchange or duplicates, the performer requests someone in the audience to mark the bill in any manner they wish. His hands are carefully shown to be empty. There is no...
