On the Johnny Thompson "Commercial Classics of Magic", Volume One, Johnyy is discussing the working of the Silent Mora "Balls & Net" effect. While explaining the effect, Johnny demonstrates a "pop-up" move his attributes to two magicians: Ed Marlo and and magician he calls (phonically) "Oscar Pladic" or "Oscar Plaidic" or Oscar "Platic". The trouble is, I don't know the proper spelling of this magician's name, and, undil I do, I am unable to research out anything about him.

Would someone please help me on the correct spelling of this man's name.

Thanks.

Mike

He is listed as Oscar Pladic on the credits, but I haven't been able to find anything else out about him.

David Roth teaches this guy's idea and ed Marlo's application in his lecture from a while ago. You might get a good finding from Roth himself via Michael Rubinstein. Ask Mike, he's a café member.

I googled Oscar Pladic and found several references to him under that spelling. Most of them were with regards to the Johnny Thompson video.

Thanks, guys for all the help. Prior to posting my request, I had Googled the name under Oscar Pladic and found nothing. Today, I found the same references that Bill Palmer did. (I must have transposed some of the letters or something last night.) Go figure.

Thanks again for the help.

Check out the Roth Tape and manuscript ..he explains more in the manuscript for the three ball routine. I do not think Oscar Pladic's routine is in print but I could be wrong.

Why don't you contact the "Master" Thompson and ask him? I'm sure that he would share the references with you.

Here ya go:
The Pallbearers Review Written by Karl Fulves Published by L&L
Second Book issues 5-8
"A Modern Chinese Marvel"
pg. 611
By: Oscar Pladek
Issue #: April MCMLXXIII

This trick is well illustrated and pretty well explained and if you have the video of Johnny Thompson or David Roth you will fully understand the routine as explained in the book.
Have fun,
Mobius
