Templetrickster: I titled my effect "The Best Gosh Darn Impromptu Linking Card Routine Ever, because I felt that way when I devised it, wrote it, etc. Still do. Completely impromptu, and used by magicians all over the world. I know, I know, they'd rather keep it secret. HL.

I saw the mouth link performed by a French magician on WGM, and it is a nice variation...

This is one of my favorite Harris effects. Always got great reactions when I performed this. As suggested, linking sequence can be done in spectators hand. Though it has never been an issue with me, restorations can be done - first as Charlie suggested with mini cards (I like that, a lot) or... just think about it for a minute.

As for Harris crediting Sankey - I'd re-watch that tape. Harris' Immaculate Connection preceeds Sankey's Cardboard Contortionist by quite a bit. Jay told me long ago that he based his handling on Paul's innovation after they had collaborated.

The way I heard it, a young magician (Jay) approached PH at a convention and Paul didn't think the idea was worth pursuing. Later, Paul came up with this incredible routine, but didn't remember the magician's name to give him credit.

IMO, this is one of Paul's greatest creations, and it uses only three ungimmicked cards. Incredible.

PS - I leave off the table link, too.
