  • Description

    Mr Rossiter shows us how to do some magic tricks.

    A sleight of hand trick involving the palming of a small ball is demonstrated. Then a trick where a pencil seems to levitate off Mr Rossiter's hand is demonstrated. He shows the camera the end of the pencil - it seems to have some sort of pin stuck in the end which presumably he sticks into his hand. A trick involving two forks and a cork is shown. A needle is stuck in the cork and that in turn is balanced on the top of a pin which sticks out of another cork which is stuck in a bottle. Shot of the magician smiling at the camera. Then a C/U of the needle balancing on the pin.
