I don't think anyone mentioned this yet, but Micheal Ammar teaches "Bill to Impossible location" in Easy to Master Money Miracles volume 3. He goes pretty in depth about different effects and methods going over the possible vanishes, destructions or transpositions of a bill, the possible means of identification (signature, torn corner, serial number) and the different impossible locations including lemon, peanut, lifesavers, certs, a pack of gum and I believe there are more, but I can't remember. This was incredibly useful to me, although for the bill in lemon, I believe Bill Malone's is still a bit more simple and equally effective.

Fielding West as a wonderful version on his DVD which no one has mentioned, yet.

Extremeley funny, and a complete fooler. The psychology at the end is superb.

Highly recommended.

Fielding West, on of the great magical entertainers, is little known to the average magician... he's one of the funniest, and cleverest, guys around.

When he showed up with his Siegfried and Roy "bronze" Lions Head, PAINTED GOLD, I nearly Sh... well you can gueass! Smile

I prefer Bill Malone and Doc Eason as well!
I can definitely recommend the DVD instructions.
I used to have a Final Anser gimmick but got rid of
it as I cound't use it for the presentation I wanted
to do. So I go for Malone and Eason. Two Thumbs up!

The Mark Wilson version is good and you get all the other good effects that are in the same book.

Another option is Ken Driscoll's Anywhere Bill. It is a bill to any impossible location, that uses a torn corner method, and is simple to do. It is around $10 at Hocus Pocus.

Billy McComb did the Mark Wilson version for years according to his tape and book. He now does another method, he has not offered as of yet.

Hahaha.. Exactly.. Jarrow.. didn't you read what I mentioned regarding The Final Answer? Smile

Basically it said, "what's all the fuzz about?"
Jarrow did it without a prepared lemon and without any gimmick, and he was a great success, but that soley was because he was a great performer.

He's probably the only one able to use the method he used, for obvious reasons. His background as a strengthman. Still, what he did was *magic*, and not pushing a button. Smile

Crossing the gaze sounds like a method. Not a routine.

What routine are you dudes speaking of?

Whatta?
Something better then TFA?
I'm not that surprised..
I'll hunt Richard Sanders version..
THAT one I have to have a peak at..
TFA has no interest at all..and it's not the price...that I don't mind...
It's the principle...

The Sanders one is OK. I saw him do it live and it's effective. But that's about all...effective. The Steve Spill version that Doc Eason teaches on his bar magic video is the BEST version out there hands down. I do it every Tuesday night and it keeps people coming back. There is TONS of audience participation - at least 4 people have props, it uses a signed bill, is completely practical, entertaining and best of all, it does not cost $400. For $400, the lemon better float in the air, cut itself, and have the bill magically unfold in front of the person who lent it out.

$400 HaHaHa. Hold on... HaHa!

That is the best trick yet. $400 to put a bill in a lemon, and to think I used a $2 TT all this time!

I think there are like 10 hundered ways to use a TT and a bill and a lemon. The largest cost is the TT. How is $400 real. This must be a fake or some rip off!

I believe The Final Answer is a package deal with choreography, props and a video. Bob once told me he wanted to offer ready made hits for the working high end professional magician.

I saw the Lemon Game done live and was not impressed. I just think that the whole game show thing is cheesy. Or even the prizes for that matter. Plus they're printed cartoonish. The nice thing about Lemon Game was that they really choose a lemon out of the bag. I have not seen Final Answer so I cannot comment on it. But I just cannot justify spending $400 for a bill in the lemon that can be done with a $2 TT just like Partizan said. It's the one I use and many others use and it's the one I'll be using forever. Others have different opinions and that's fine.

Hi Werner,

The question about Richard Sanders' version being "better" is a personal taste.

Twistedace, actually the Steve Spill version and Sanders are very similar, the only difference is that one needs a bag, the other uses a crossing the gaze sw**ch.

The rest is all about presentation.

BTW, when you saw it, was Richard performing for laymen or magicians?
(his presentation for laymen is much better)
