Hey Folks,

Take a look at the great clip on our site featuring the master of wit and magic Fred Keating in the 1937 film "When's Your Birthday"!

Visit The Miracle Factory!

It's part of our latest historical 2-DVD set, Fred Keating: A Magician in the Movies, featuring Keating in four 1930s films. Act NOW and SAVE! It's only $30 for the 2 DVD set (regular $40) for a limited time!


Fred Keating (1898-1961) revolutionized twentieth-century magic with his combination of precise sleight-of-hand (his teacher was the great Nate Leipzig) and sarcastic humor. His 1920s vaudeville career and one-man theater shows helped define the modern magician of his time.

In the 1930s, Keating's snappy wit, handsome looks, and acting skills led him to Hollywood, where he starred in a dozen Hollywood features. Three of them are included here: The Devil on Horseback (1936), When’s Your Birthday? (1937), and Prison Train (1938).

Keating performed magic in many of his movies. Here, you’ll see him demonstrate his sleight-of-hand with cards, bills, eggs, and more. Through his interesting roles, you’ll also experience the humor and theatricality that made Fred Keating such a prominent force in the magic world.

The DVD set includes a clip of Keating in the 1939 magic-themed movie Eternally Yours, as well as galleries of rare images.

Best wishes,
