I'm thinking about getting Ed Marlo's 35 years later video. I love Ed Marlo's magic, and I really enjoyed the 2 A-1 videos. It was really cool seeing Ed at Schueliens. Can anyone tell me a little about this video? I know that it's a lecture but that's it.

I like it. I was 3 miles away from the lecture, but didn't go to it...Duh !!! Lots of notables in the audience, like a YOUNG Daryl. Hope you enjoy it. Trois
Not clever enough to come up with something orginal, or did I.

How "cheap" is cheap to you? Dinner for one at White Castle can run $10 . . .

Last time I had *real* White Castle cheeseburgers (not the supermarket kind) you could buy a sack of 10 for a buck.

That was 35 years ago. Approximately. Give or take a few years.

In my review of the video, written in September 2001, I gave it an excellent rating. For those interested here it is, but it is a bit long, so feel free to skip it.

Ed Marlo – 35 Years Later
60 mins., $35 (plus $3.50 p&h) from Randy Wakeman, 12362 S. Oxford Lane, Plainfield, IL 60544. Email: randymagic@aol.com.

In 1986 Ed Marlo returned after 35 years to lecture once again in St. Louis, MO. He prepared and published a set of lecture notes titled Thirty Five Years Later and the material from these notes became part of The Card Magic of Ed Marlo published by L&L in 1993. This is a one-camera video recording of that lecture, in color and excellent quality (for a home video-type recording) and what a treat for Marlo fans it is.

You are transported to a noisy hotel meeting room, with sounds of whatever was going on in the adjacent room, complete with boom-boom rock music, leaking through. The camera uses its zoom capabilities intermittently and you can’t see the faces of the cards clearly. Just like attending a real lecture! There’s the great Marlo, pompadoured hairpiece and all, in a great mood and obviously proud to be at the convention he’s addressing. And this is the funny Ed Marlo, giving forth with many magician-only jokes and recounting stunts he pulled on the wise-guys when he was pitching “slum” magic at Chicago’s Treasure Chest (about which you can find more in Jon Racherbaumer’s book of Marlo non-card effects, Arcade Dreams). It’s a great portrait of the man.

Oh, yes – the tricks. There are ten, nine of which are explained. “Are We Fooling Ourselves” has the Ace of Spades and three blank cards transforming into each other; “Female,” a famous trick in which a card is freely named by a woman, then all the cards are shown to have male names printed on their backs except the selection, which not only has a female name, it’s the spectator’s actual name! It takes some pre-show work and the card can’t be handed out, but Marlo has some variations (naturally) which address these restrictions. “Not All Psychological” is a “stop” trick; “Devilish Miracle” and “On the Interlaced Transposition” are incomplete but valuable footnotes to the performance of these classic tricks; “The Money Sandwich” uses a gaffed dollar bill for a very clean “Between Your Palms” variation, and “Card In Case” is yet another variant; “Challenge Oil and Water” is performance-only and you can’t see the faces of the cards, but it is still very impressive.

You might be able to learn a couple of the tricks from this video alone, but it is really most valuable as an adjunct to either of the two books mentioned above. Actually, its greatest value is being able to time-warp oneself back 15 years to attend a Marlo lecture, something of which many a cardician worthy of his linen finish has dreamt.
