This is a special treat for all mentalists who would like to learn more about the effects of Romark. Romark was a successful English mentalist during the 1970s and early 80s, who was good friends with Tony Corinda
, who helped him put together his TV show. Romark's early death in his mid-50s prevented him from becoming even more widely known.
You will receive a video of three of Romark's TV shows from 1974 together with a PDF explaining the effects. (Check your digital shelf for all downloads.) The explanations were put together by Romark's wife Ursula and Martin Breese. The effects for which you will see performances of and get explanations to are:
- Ten Minds At Once: Romark invited a soccer team to his show and read ten player's minds, the goalkeeper acted as assistant.
- Naming Of The Books In The Package: Dr. Richard Gordon, a prolific author of books on medical fiction often humorous, was the guest. He brought six of his books which Romark mentally determined in a sort of psychological reading effect.
- The Book Test: Free choice of one of the six books Dr. Gordon brought with him, free choice of page, line, and word number, which Romark mentally deduces and transmits to his assistant Colleen, who writes the word on a blackboard.
- The Entire Book Test: Dr. Gordon picks his favorite book, audience member picks a page, and the blindfolded Romark reads almost the entire page from memory.
- Matching Birth Dates: Romark identifies members of the audience who have the same birth date.
- The Needle In A Haystack: Romark hides a marked needle in a real haystack. Several audience members unsuccessfully try to find the needle by taking the haystack apart. Then Romark gets one spectator, directs him where to take some hay with a shovel and place it on a table. There the spectator finds the needle among the hay he placed on the table. The needle has the same identifying marks.
Please note that the video quality is not that great. After all we are talking 1974. But besides the lower resolution and some video disturbances, the audio and video are fine, and everything can be viewed pretty much as a TV viewer would have experienced it during the 1970s.
