    Story about billiards.

    Through a camera trick a man magically appears by the billiards table. We see him taking various shots. Wide angle lens used to give unusual image of player at far end of table and two billiard balls which look extremely large in the foreground. He hits the ball and it comes straight towards the camera. He plays a trick shot, knocking a coin into a glass which stands on the edge of the table.

    Another trick shot involves using two cues laid on the table. A paper bag is placed on the table and he takes a shot where the ball goes into the bag and tips it over. His last trick shot involves a large number of glasses being laid out on the table. His trick shot passes up and down the rows without touching any of the glasses.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 648.
