Disneyland's 50th anniversary celebration has a new video with Steve Martin doing a ton of magic tricks. It's being shown in the old Lincoln theatre.

Steve Carrell's character, Andy, in "The 40 Year Old Virgin" tries to impress his date's daughter by producing an oversized quarter and a latex ear from her ear. Quite poorly though.


There was also a giant poster of Doug Henning on the door in his apartment.

Joe Pecci does a card change in My Cousin Vinny. Not bad to.
Justin.
Also, Steve Martin does some magic in Leap of Faith.

Road to Perdition and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl both feature coin rolls done at some point.

And DareDevil features a backpalm card production, done by Bullseye.

While not quite magical, the woman playing solitare in base-camp in "Eight Below" is using Bicycle Fan Back cards...which have been out of print for a while.

I'm jealous.

As much as I LOVE Pirates Of The Caribbean TCOTBP, Capt Jack's skeletal coin flourishes, were, alas, computer generated. However, if you watch just prior to those sequences, Depp (or his stand-in) executes a not-too-shabby Classic P**m.

By the way, the film in which Anthony Hopkins performed a do-as-I-do card trick was titled, appropriately enough, "Magic." He played a vent.

What exactly does he do in it?


It's a cheezy horror movie, it's not THAT bad.

It's been awhile, but I remember David floating a rose while he flirted with the heroine. Does a card stab and a switch with him and his assistant behind a sheet. Don't remember too much else.

"Real Genius," Val Kilmer does two coin rolls, one in each hand, while saying dialog.

"Airplane," the doctor does the egg in the mouth gag with one of the sick patients on the plane.

"Rio Bravo," (John Wayne did three movies with "Rio" in the title. This should be the one with Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson and Angie Dickinson." Angie plays a card shark. At one point she does color changes for the saloon owner. You can tell someone is feeding her the cards under the table and her hand is extremely stiff. As the saloon owner gushes; "How do you do that?" I turned to my wife and said; "Badly!"
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.

Better late than never, the hands in the opening of SHADE belong to Damian Nieman (who wrote and directed the film), R. Paul Wilson, Jason England, and Earl Nelson. Hope that helps.

I love the scene in Total Recall were the guy with the backpack on going up the escalator does the bullet catch.
In loving memory of Hughie Thomasson 1952-2007.

You brought something beautiful to this world, you touched my heart, my soul and my life. You will be greatly missed.

Until we meet again “my old friend”.

How can we forget Shade's granddaddy, The STING?!? This is the movie that got me interested in cards. I saw it when I was 11 and went nuts when Paul Newman does some fancy cuts and second deals. (It's actually Scarne.)

The scary dude in "Road to Perdition" always does coin rolls. I always wanted to do one after I saw that movie.

And The Sting's great grandfather: "THE CINCINATTI KID" where Steve McQueen ( I wonder who it actually was?) does card sleights and flourishes in front of Tuesday Weld and Edward G. Robinson!

I've noticed in the music video's of the foo fighters the bass player seems to have a backround of magic...or an interest in it.
I can't believe I missed that t&r newspaper in the Recruit with al pacino.

Near the beginning of the Lion King, the King's evil brother (Scar) coin rolls a mouse across his knuckles.

If we're going to discuss music videos, Juice Newton's "Playing With The Queen of Hearts" has some basic card moves being done during the chorus.

There was also a Thompson Twins video where the keyboardist was doing a cup and ball bit.

Also, the DVD of "The Sword In The Stone" has a television sequence where Walt introduces the Magic Mirror from "Snow White" (actor Hans Conried) who has hands within the mirror and does some magic. (I don't know who's hands, they don't appear to be his.)

Two more:

In the classic Kubrick dark comedy "Dr. Strangelove", one of the bored bomber pilots does some very nice shuffles and fan-flourishes.

There is also a 1964 sci-fi movie called the "Time Travellers", where parlor and stage illusions are used to depict "future technology" (teleportation and fast-growing fruit). In the Android Factory scene, the old "metal hoop-to-square" is shown as part of the production line.
