About Cavett it's surprising because on one of the two recorded shows I know of, he specifically says that his intent in having Slydini on the show is to SAVE THE IMAGES of him performing, for posterity's sake.

The Cavett recordings are really, really good.

This is a great thread here that has been resurrected. The 2 dvd set "As I Recall" is a tribute to Slydini and likely has the most actual performance footage from the master himself.

In 2000, I bought a collection of out-take photos from the stars of magic book. They were sequential black and white photos of Slydini. I sold over 300 single shots which were just still shots holding props. One group was a succession of Slydini doing rings. I scanned them and put them in a flash sequence. I probably could do a better job today but if anyone wants to see them:
Let me know if you are able to see them. Slow load for me on dial-up. just under 4mb.

Are there any DVDs out showing how to do Slydini's Torn and Restored Newspaper?

You can find it on "The Magic Of Slydini" book.

Gene Anderson also has one of the best T&R Newspaper routines around, also recommend you to check that out.
