Over the past few months I have been dusting off and reinventing my "old" magic. Came across the
booklet Super Swindle by Paul Harris. Years ago I never used it and I don't know why?? I've been
working it into my close-up act and I can't wait to see hoe it is received.
Yes you will wear this out like a great record. It really is great performances and fun. The tricks
are incredibly well explained including how to perform any sleights needed for the tricks. You will
learn a lot or at least improve "doing" this DVD.
But Harris really reaches through the screen
and not in a I'm forcing myself on you kind of way. When he presents these tricks I mean you really
feel it. It's amazing. You are watching a creator with his card children :)
If you are in the
camp of "I need an opener" or "today people have no attention span" - I can assure you Paul Harris
was on this page 30 years ago. These tricks hit fast, fun, and jaw dropping all the Magic you could
I think really this and his other Stars of Magic DVD / Paul Harris are Magic Jewels
that you will be your treasure .
No I am not the son of Paul Harris :)
This is a very fine collection of Paul Harris' work! Sure he's a little cheesy in his patter, but
the effects are outstanding! Some of these have updated handlings in the Paul Harris boxset, but
they are still worth knowing and performing. Who knows, you may prefer the original handling.
I am going to get the Stars of Magic #2 for sure.
This 1st dvd has an incredible variaty of profesional effects. The one major issue i have with the
dvd is that paul harris's material has been taken, worked on, and improved so much that these
original effects are not the as good as the impoved versions. Also because so many magicians have
taken and improved upon Paul Harris's work that there is a lot of effects i already owned in
improved verisons. But aside from my rant on how his material has been improved there are a LOT of
effects that are on the dvd and for this is a steal for the good ideas and original material on the
dvd. Immaculate Connection is worth the price of the dvd alone. The whole "volume 3" section on
the dvd was amazing. I found that this dvd shows eve n in the vhs era Paul Harris began in he was
so far ahead of his time with even effects that are on a TV and involve things usable in out digital
age. A steal at 15 I would buy this for spectacular magic and original plots Paul Harris is the
