Movie Reviews

Solid Magic with a Hidden Jewel
Eric B. Henning | Laurel, MD USA | 11/01/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While this DVD is mostly a compilation of several Gary Ouellet-produced magic specials, one of which only tangentially features Lance Burton, it nevertheless contains some of the best magic ever shown on TV. The "Hidden Secrets of Magic" special is a look into some of the greatest feats in the history of thearical magic. No, you won't learn the secrets, but you will see them performed by today's masters. Charlotte Pendragon escapes, chained inside a locked crate dumped into a bay. "The Light and Heavy Chest," which the great Robert-Houdin used to stop a war, is featured, and yes, it's the very same chest!
But the great jewel is the only video of the famous "Blue Room," in which people visbly vanish and transform as if in a film special effect - only it was what audiences saw live - in the 1860's! This one segment alone, recreated for the L.A. Conference on Magic History in 1996, is worth the price of the DVD. Highly recommended."
Better than it seems

"This is NOT an expose of magic nor is it the FOX "Secrets of Magic Revealed" special... it is actually a beautifully transferred DVD version of Lance Burton's 2 TV specials! I have seen him twice live in Las Vegas, and these specials capture some incredible magic from a modern master. Don't be fooled by the title or the low price! This is a BUY!!!"
Lovely DVD with lots of fun magic tricks
Laura De Giorgio | Canada | 12/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD contains 3 one-hour segments - presenting some neat magic performed by Lance Burton and several other people. These magic tricks are presented, rather than revealed - however, there is a section with three magic tricks, I guess for kids, to perform - egg through bottle, how to make an egg stand upright and how to make a needle float on water.
Some of the magic presented by Lance Burton is vanishing several elephants, buried alive, lots of great sleight of hand stuff. There are also few other performers demonstrating sleight of hand, even as used by card players to cheat in card games (there is some revelantion regarding how this works), vanishings, and fun tricks from the history of magic e.g. Light and Heavy Chest is demonstrated, rather than explained (you could find explanations in books related to history of magic, though). The DVD is loaded with so many magic tricks that it is well worth the price."
Wonderful!
