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 Cigarette Through Quarter is a modern classic of magic, only made possible by one of the most ingenious gimmicked coins ever invented. With the help of this miracle of modern machining, a solid object can be pushed straight through the middle of a borrowed coin, one of the most magical and memorable feats that a magician can perform. On this DVD, you'll see six modern masters each perform their own version of this impossible feat.

In this volume, you'll learn a variety of approaches to this classic effect. You'll first see David Roth's classic approach followed by J.J. Sanvert's utilization of the routine to demonstrate why smoking is bad for you. You'll also learn Derek Dingle's complete routine, which includes a cigarette production, some magically appearing matches and a pseudo-explanation that will leave spectators even more puzzled. The set is rounded out by Garrett Thomas's space-age version using a laser and a pen, Dan Fleshman's family-friendly take with a crayon, and finally, Michael Ammar's neo-classic routine using a pencil. Additionally, Ammar also teaches his Flip Switch move, hailed as the best and most invisible way to switch the gimmicked coin in and out of play.

Like many of the World's Greatest Magic DVD's this one is good, but nothing special. I like these because you get to see a variety of takes on a single subject. Maybe the cigarette through quarter is a bit too limited, just like the folding coin dvd. I like Dan fleshman's handling the best on these, but unfortunately already had his restaurant collection. if you don't know how to properly present this classic then buy this. If you already have a version that works for you then you won't be missing out.

But this DVD will help make it possible. This has become a clasic of magic that has been done to death and not well. This DVD will give you some great pointers to make it look as intended. The flip switch by Ammar is my favorite move from the DVD and many will like it also. You will need to find a gimmicked quarter and this can be something of a task if you are looking for a specific one.

I received this from a friend who owns a magic shop in Alaska and its a horrible trick. I wanted a refund even though I got it for free! It sounds good in theory but its almost impossible to pull off. Your hands wont be clean and it can't be a signed quarter. Angles are horrible and the quarter isn't examible unless switched. The gimmick is horrible and blatenly obvious.
