Mine arrived yesterday, and I have already watched it 4 times. The video was great, but the section I found most interesting was the PDF files on the psychology of the pitch - priceless information.

Got mine and watched it a couple of times now. Really it was just great to see David Walker "doing his thing." For me it was great to see a lot of the little things that really make all the difference. Like his banter with the imaginary kids to stimulate interest. Or the way he leads people into the close to turn the tip. There really is a lot of subtle things you can pick up.

I've certainly spent a lot more, for a lot less.

Good job Sam!

You are all going to enjoy hearing my interview with Walker about his career and his thoughts on pitching - the episode of the BALLYCAST Podcast should be posted around June 1 2012. I've just finished editing our chat, and it's a knockout!

Of course, you're also invited to hear all the other BALLYCAST episodes while you're waiting.

This is a GREAT DVD on the Svengali pitch from the king...David Walker who broke me in so many years ago.David started pitching the Svengali deck back in 1946 with Harry Lorayne.David learned the pitch from none other than Mickey MacDougall who invented the pitch.

David passed away several years ago so this is it.Don't let this get away from you.Besides teaching the pitch its Magic history.

Later,Don

Hey Don: Not very important in the great scheme of things, but just to keep the record straight - it was 1948, not 1946, that David and I starting to pitch Svengalis. As I said, not a very important piece of information. Good Lord! About 67 years ago!!

I didn't know that David had passed away. Terribly sorry to hear that.

Coincidentally, I've heard from quite a few magicians telling me that my few small sections in my "rememoir" about our (S. David Walker, his then wife Ellie, and Renee and I) drive to Miami, where we starved for a while, where David and I tried to do a magic act, pitched Svengalis, I started to do table magic at a hotel, etc., were the most interesting sections. I'm sure the DVDs are great. Best - Harry L.
