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. Since the days of David Devant, the idea of magically causing playing cards to move invisibly between two places has intrigued magicians and inspired them to come up with different twists and methodologies. Cards Across, as the basic plot has come to be known, is also of interest close-up and stage performers alike because of how well a strong performance of this trick plays for audiences. On this volume you'll find some of magic's best performers performing and explaining their own versions of this time-honored classic. You'll find basic but strong handlings from Bill Malone and Michael Skinner to more involved routines with the cards visibly vanishing and traveling twice, such as in Dan Harlan's routine. Bruce Cervon causes two signed cards to travel while in Juan Tamariz's version, cards that were merely thought of move from one spectator's hand to another's. You'll also discover Michael Ammar's routine with sealed envelopes, with two selected cards traveling from one impossible place to another, and Michael Close's hilarious take, where the cards travel from one really impossible place to another. If you've been looking to add to a version of cars across to your close-up or platform repertoire, this DVD is a veritable embarrassment of riches!

Standing ovation for this dvd. Another WGM hit. Ammar's routine is applause worthy Great show stopper jaw dropper and Harlan's routine is ok. Very entertaining just like they always do(WGM). For your parlor or close-up show this is really recommend by me.
Lastly, everthing which consist of WGM= When can I have you back for another show. And that's what its all about.

This is one of my favorite tricks. I love watching it performed by real magicians. I’m still practicing the easier versions. What’s great is that there are multiple versions by some of magic’s Greats.

None of the magicians performed Cards Across in a
manner that can be used on stage with two volunteers.
It was primarily a close up effect.
Of the magicians on the DVD, one of them should not
be allowed to perform or offer explanations on any
His foreign accent and poor American English made him
very difficult to understand. The faster he spoke,
the more difficult it was to understand him.
