The Miracle Factory has done it again! With the effort of Bill McIlhany, Todd Karr has released a 3 DVD set of Silent Movies of Early Magic Stars with over 3 hours of material. No secrets, but if you're a historical buff or just plain interested in seeing some of the past masters, here is your chance.

The 3 DVDs are divided into three decades, the 1920's, 1930's, and the 1940's. There are over 100 performers so I won't list them all, but Houdini, Cardini, Blackstone, and Thurston and just a few. Also Annemann, Okito, Fu Manchu, Devant, Goldin, Vernon, Tenkai, Downs and others.

I just sat down and watched these and it was so much fun seeing these guys perform or just ham it up in front of the camera (Okito and Fu Manchu were a real kick to watch).

Oh a few others names...Cliff Green, jack Gwynne, Joe Berg, Burling Hall, UF Grant, John Booth, Al Baker and still more.

If you're just learning secrets to learn secrets this probably won't do much for you, but if magic is your passion, you can't go wrong. This is a treasure chest of films that until now, were just plain not available for most of us.

I should also say that The Society of American Magicians was heavily involved in this project as well.

100 well spent dollars from
