Long Tack Sam was an internationally renowned Chinese acrobat and magician. He overcame isolation, poverty, cultural and linguistic barriers, extreme racism and world wars to become one of the most successful vaudeville acts of his time. His showmanship was unrivaled, yet he refused to appear in movies because of the way Chinese were portrayed at the time.

This is the second of two magician profiles I shall do .
There is an excellent N.F.B. documentary film called The Magical Life Of Long Tack Sam.
