Go to YouTube and search "Cardini". His performance on Producer's Showcase (1957) is there. However, it's not his entire act that he did in vaudeville and clubs.

As noted there just ain't much available. But the little that we have shows us was a great entertainer he was. Perhaps the defintion of a great magician is--a great entertainer who used magic to entertain.

I was also watching some of the material that's out there on Slydini. Bow down to the greats, we may never see their like again.

There is or was a guy in Ohio north of myself ( I am in Cincinnati) that was taught the entire act by Cardini himself. I cannot remember the guys name and don't know if he is even still alive. If anyone else knows please let me know. Thanks.

Do we know when about this guy from Ohio was taught the act? 50's 60's 70's. Did he ever do the act or just a hobbiest with a lot of money?

Maybe Bill Brewe can shed more light on this. Tell Bill hi for me.
