Just an FYI -- If you're a Netflix streaming subscriber, here are a few things that may be of interest:

Magic Camp -- A 2012 documentary on Tannen's annual -- you guessed it -- magic camp.

An Honest Liar -- A 2012 documentary about The Amazing Randi.

Deceptive Practice -- A 2012 documentary about Ricky Jay.

Houdini -- Two-part television miniseries from 2014.

Make Believe -- A 2010 documentary/movie that follows six of the world's best young magicians as they pursue the title of Teen World Champion.

Jeff, I looked but can't find "Make Believe" on Netflix streaming. It streams on Amazon (for a fee, even with Amazon Prime), so maybe the rights for this documentary have changed companies since you watch it. But thanks for the tip -- I'll keep my eyes open for this title.

I had trouble too but from this link http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/make_believe_2011/ it took me to it. However, I can't get it to play now. It is a shame because I watched it 2 or 3 times before on Netflix and it was very inspiring (much along the lines of "Magic Camp" but better in my opinion. My favorite line from the movie is when one of the young American boys says "when I grow up, I want to be Asian" referring to the friend he made. Smile

Definitely check it out if you find it somewhere.

Yeah, Make Believe is no longer on Netflix. Too bad to because it was awesome. I also thought it was much more enjoyable than magic camp. Bill Cook one of the teens on the movie was on Penn and Teller's Fool Us as well. An Honest Liar was really good also.

Excellent topic. Thanks for posting! Hopefully more will be added over the coming months. Magic camp was ok... Pretty awkward. Heard Houdini isn't very good unfortunately. Will have to check out the others.

I enjoyed the Houdini episodes personally but I don't think the representation of him was accurate. They only portrayed a part of who Houdini was and based his personality and fears etc on those things they portrayed. Just my two cents.

Folks were speaking so highly of "Make Believe" that I ordered a used DVD for two bucks on Amazon. Today a package arrived containing "Make Believe" -- an album by Weezer. I suppose that's what I get for trying to save a few bucks. (Here's hoping the vendor has the other "Make Believe" in stock.)

Well, Beverly Hills was a big hit on that one. (Buddy Holly) from another album, is featured on a car commercial now (the one where the whole family sings different parts).
