A classic of magic for large and small audiences that fits in your pocket.

Imagine the best magic, the best magicians, and the best producers all in one place.

Imagine no more...


If you could have one set of magic DVDs, this would be it! This benchmark collection features just about all of magic's most enduring and classic effects and routines. It's a fabulous compendium with many of the top masters in the world of magic teaching their handlings and routines for some of magic's classics. Linking rings, sponge balls, metal bending, cups and balls, thumb tips, Zombie, color-changing knives, and many, many more topics are all gathered in this one terrific DVD reference set. Each volume covers a specific subject and features new, old, and sometimes rare footage by some of the top video producers in magic.

The Cups and Balls are commonly thought to be the world's oldest trick but, as Johnny Thompson theorizes, perhaps there was one before it just called "The Ball Trick." Certainly, many of magic's legendary names, including Silent Mora, Tenkai, Dai Vernon, John Scarne, Oscar Pladic and others, thought enough of this simple yet baffling plot - three small balls travel from one hand to the other - to put their own individual stamp on it.

On this volume, you'll meet five masters of this celebrated trick and one grandmaster whose work on this plot catapulted it into the rarified air of classic magic effect. Johnny Thompson begins with the classic version made famous by Silent Mora and Fernando Keops follows with Dai Vernon's archetypal method. Gary Ouellet, adding some Slydini-esque touches, demonstrates and teaches a beautifully choreographed routine while Flip offers a whimsical interpretation using aluminum foil balls. Johnny Thompson offers his interpretation of the Dai Vernon routine which serves as the perfect introduction to the Professor himself. Steve Freeman performs the Vernon routine as Gary Ouellet, Michael Ammar and Vernon himself offer invaluable insights into the history and psychology of the Three Ball Trick. Finally, David Roth performs and teaches a variation of the trick that offers some groundbreaking moves to streamline this masterpiece of close-up magic.

The Three Ball Trick is a routine that can play for large and small audiences and can be done virtually impromptu. It's inarguably one of magic's classic effects - and you'll find no better teaching resource to learn this routine properly than this DVD.

Generally speaking I am a big fan of the World's Greatest Magic videos as you receive an education on an effect by several professional magicians. The fabulous three ball trick video is no different. Johnny Thompson's performance is classic and smooth. David Roth's contributes a wonderful move to the routine.

The video quality is good (although the resolution is wanting when compared to today's video capability). The audio is clear. The instruction is clear and you will have no trouble learning this effect.

The only criticism I have is on the effect itself. Are three balls jumping from one hand to the other and eventually vanishing entertaining? Especially when compared to the sponge balls which happens in the volunteer's hands? Or when compared to the cups & balls which can be performed on stage? This effect has been used on stage as well, but the cups & balls could certainly provide a better viewing for the spectators. The fabulous three ball trick is worthwhile because it strips the cups & balls down to the essentials, does not require a table, and we've all had a ball to play with at some point in our life. I absolutely love this effect with a good presentation.

The 3 Ball Routine is the essence of sleight of hand magic. Simple, direct, magical. Performed by the masters. David Roth's contribution to this classic routine is brilliant.
