Home Video Footage in a Non-Studio Setting!

     There is no doubt that Michael Skinner is a legend in the magic community, and was considered by many to be the finest close-up artist in the world, unassuming and gentle of heart.

     His deliberate style, warm personality, flawless sleight of hand and unending repertoire, children and gamblers have witnessed his dazzling skills. From his beginnings in Rochester to his journey to the Magic Castle, and subsequently two guest appearances on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, Michael Skinner remains the consummate performer.

     Michael leaves his legacy as being the Magician-In-Residence at the Golden Nugget Hotel in Las Vegas for more than 20 years. Casino mogul Steve Wynn said it all by commenting that, “The greatest tribute to Michael is the respect and esteem he has received from other members of his profession. For 20 years other magicians have made pilgrimages to wherever he was working.”

     Dai Vernon, Michael’s mentor, said in an inscription to Michael, “...who deceives me continually.”

     It is indeed an honor to bring Michael’s repertoire to the magical fraternity. Young and old will be inspired by these rare glimpses of Michael, “In performance,” in a non-studio setting,  unproduced.

     And yes, Michael is still fooling us!

Final Ace Routine

This is the most famous card affected invented by Brother John Hamman.  Spectator examines 12 number cards and 4 Aces.  The Aces are spread on the table and 3 cards dealt upon them.  PRESTO the 4 Aces all appear in one pile!  Cards are laid out again with an Ace at the bottom of each pile.  PRESTO they all seem to melt away and appear together in the fourth pile.
