Does anybody know what became of Rico? I knew him when I was a teenager. He was from Boston and did a very fine manipulation act with cards, candles, silks and Zombie. He played the Lido in Paris during some of the 1960's and 70's, then worked in Vegas in the 80's in Johnny Thompson's Magic Review called Les Sorcery. Does anyone know where I can get film footage of him doing his act?
Channing Pollack is my idea of the perfect magician. For those of you that have not seen him perform, I recommend trying to get hold of a video of an old movie called "European Nights" made about 1959.
I was able to buy this video from Stevens Magic

I am not too sure what became of Rico. I heard at some point he was a taxi driver in Vegas. His performing in Las Vegas was mostly in the 70's if he did any in the 80's it was very early 80's. One of the last hotel casinos I remember him being at performing was the Royal Las Vegas.
