The World’s Greatest Magic – Ace Assemblies
Just $19.95 each!
The invention of the classic trick where the four Aces are deal face down, three indifferent cards are dealt onto each, yet the Aces mysteriously gather into one of the packets, is usually attributed to the French magician Conus. However, ever since its original publication in 1853, magicians are still coming up with amazing variations of this timeless effect and enchanting audiences with them to this day.
On this DVD, you’ll meet six magicians who each have their own singular take on the Ace Assembly plot. First up is Bill Malone with an amazing and quite visual version that has a method that will make you smile. Then, Bruce Cervon ups the ante by using Aces with opposite-colored backs while Alex Elmsley causes the Aces to not only assemble but to do so in a spectator’s hand! Dan Harlan is next with a variation that also uses odd-backed Aces in an unbelievably fair sequence that looks like real magic while Simon Aronson provides a graphic demonstration of why you never let anyone touch your Poker hand. Finally, James Swain closes out this volume with a version where a spectator actually chooses the packet into which the Aces assemble.
On this DVD, you’ll meet five magicians who each have their own singular take on the Ace Assembly plot. First up is Bill Malone with an Ace assembly that is so clean that it does, indeed, almost look like trick cards are in use. Next, Steve Draun adds an amazingly visual ending to Marlo’s Bluff assembly while Trevor Lewis switches the Aces’ final destination at the last moment for a surprising finish to a fairly easy-to-do routine. John Guastaferro is next with a version where the Aces not only assemble but actually do so in the card case while Martin Nash’s Aces do the same under a spectator’s hand. Finally, Bill Malone returns with a technically-challenging but eye-popping routine where the Aces suddenly – and visibly – appear in the leader packet.
On this DVD, you’ll meet six magicians who each have their own singular take on the Ace Assembly plot. First up is Bill Malone with a squeaky-clean assembly that’s surprisingly easy to do. Darwin Ortiz is next with an update version of his classic routine where the Aces vanish and reassemble under increasingly impossible conditions. Petrick (of Petrick and Mia fame) is up next with an elegant Ace assembly with many visual flairs while Paul Wilson follows with an assembly routine that could only be described as instantaneous. Not to be outdone, David Regal is next with an Ace assembly that’s even faster while Harry Lorayne finishes the volume with a revved-up version of a Peter Kane classic.
