Various shots of conjurer Howard De Courcy doing tricks involving some large hoops that he catches and manages to hang on his arm, even though his thumbs have been tied together by a mute male assistant. C/U of Howard's hands as he swiftly passes two half crowns over the backs of his fingers numerous times (this is a little trick for us to try at home, he says).
