Magic Ian,

Will you be doing this at the lecture in August at FAB in Colon, MI?

Howie did this in his lecture, therefore it is appropriate to perform. I reference it in my Parade in order to do the "outdone" effect of the move. This will not, however, be in the lecture but I can perform it for you.
I am wondering if the Wilson method is the same as Shwartzman's?

I posted earlier a reference to Channing Pollock using a modified Stillwell ball technique for a barehand silk production. As the cobwebs cleared from my mind, I remembered that he used that method in the Daniel Boone TV show episode "Seminole Territory," where Pollock plays a traveling magician who uses his magic skills to convince the Seminole Indians that he has real magic powers. Interestingly, I believe it was this episode of Daniel Boone that captured Lance Burton's imagination as a boy in Kentucky and led him to become a magician. Unless I'm mistaken, the young Lance thought the card manipulations in that episode were done using the black art principle. Trivia note: Also appearing in that Daniel Boone episode was an actor named Leonard Nimoy before he became better known for his role as Mr. Spock in _Star Trek_.

I would love to see that episode. I do not think Daniel Boone airs in my area, and it has been a loooooong time since I have seen an episode.

Didn't Channing guest star on several other tv shows? I was thinking Bonanza was one of them??? I'm sure there are others. I would love to see some of his acting performances. Do you know where could I get a list of shows he played in?

Ian, I will be looking forward to the June issue of The Linking Ring!!!


I don't want to get off topic, but I thought you all may be interested. I just found out that an upcoming episode of The Beverly Hillbilly's will have Channing Pollock as a cast member. The episode is called, "Garden Party", and it is supposed to air next week on TV Land. (Tuesday, June 2, 2009, 7:30 P.M & Wednesday, June 3, 2009, 1:30 P.M.) I supposed those times are E.S.T., but I am not 100% sure. The show was filmed in 1963.

I'm not sure Channing will do any magic on the show, but I still hope to watch. He plays "Young Man-Party Guest" Murray Pollock.

Also in that same episode is a beautiful young actress named Sharon Tate, who was later a victim of the infamous Charles Manson murders. She was cast as the "Young Woman-Party Guest", but she was not given a name.

And by the way, Channing did play on an episode of Bonanza in 1971. The title is, "Easy Come, Easy Go". He was cast as "Carter". Again, I don't know if he does any magic in the show, but from the title I wouldn't doubt it. It is an episode about gambling, where the Ponderosa is turned into a casino.

He also played as "Kit Carson" in one episode of the tv series, "The Great Adventure". Channing played in several other tv specials, along with several other shows and European films.
