Star Item
  • Description

    Probably shot in the Pathe studio.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Meet a strange Entertainer with a marvellous egg trick! Wherever he goes this trick is famous." Full item title reads: "Watch as closely as you can for De Biere Prince of Entertainers and entertainer of Princes is going to show you just how he does it (perhaps)".

    De Biere is a magician who does a trick with an egg and a bag. "Editor's Note - No camera trick whatever is used in this illusion it is just as millions have seen it on the stage."

    De Biere begins his act speaking in French then does his patter in English. He puts the egg in the bag and makes it disappear. A voice offstage accuses him of slipping the egg in his back jacket pocket but he proves he didn't. Two men hold his arms to prevent him putting the egg in his pocket. De Biere shows us how to do the trick. He gives away the secret!
