Publication Summary: 2012, 38 mins.
Peter Warlock's legendary monthly magazine NEW PENTAGRAM ran for 20 years. During those two decades some of the finest close-up and stage magic of the period was explained in its pages. I have selected TEN routines for each volume (in chronological order), so you should expect 20 DVDs dedicated to this great magazine. Thanks to Lybrary.com for permission to use the effects and to do this project.
NEWSTEAR TELEPATHY (Fred Lowe): You tear a piece of newspaper in 16 pieces and one is selected. You predicted that part of the newspaper. It is a clever way to do this classic!
JUST ONE MORE CHANCE (Ian Adair): A new principle in this classic effect. Three envelopes, two spectators pick an envelope each (no force). The remaining envelope remains to you and it is the only one containing money!
THE INCREDIBLE PREDICTION (Jack Avis): You predict a card chosen under the fairest possible conditions and after the deck has been shuffled!
SILVER AND COPPER (H. Dudley Whitnall): Two silver coins change places with two copper coins, one at a time!
HOFZINSER AGAIN (Paul Ryland-Milton Kort): Four Aces are placed in four glasses. A chosen card changes places with the Ace of the same suit!
LEAP YEAR TAKE THREE (Peter Warlock): One freely selected card jumps from one packet to another!
CHOCOLATE JUST CHANCE (Freddie Firth): Three spectators pick a number each. They will get a chocolate bar, while you get the $100 bill!
MENTAL SPELL (Dr. Nicholas Harley): The effect is that of spelling out three MENTALLY selected cards!
MANHATTON (Peter Warlock): Three cups and three colored balls. One spectator picks any ball (no force) and any cup. Inside this cup you have a ball of the same color. The other cups are empty!
WHERE HAVE ALL THE ACES GONE? (Tom Swan): A very unique and strange Ace-assembly. Aces disappear and assemble in one packet!
