Various shots of dapper looking Maskelyne on stage set. He delivers a comic monologue whilst performing trick. He picks up a razor blade and, to prove it is sharp, cuts some paper with it. He then proceeds to chew and swallow a box of blades on at a time. He then takes a length of string and swallows it like spaghetti. He then pulls string out of mouth with razor blades tied to it - magic?!
Note: according to old record music is 'March of the Little Soldiers' and 'Merry Go Round' - De Wolfe.
