    Magician Robert Harbin does a trick with a newspaper.

  • Description

    Part of ON THE SPOT issue.

    Pathe Studios, London.

    M/S of train with a man reading a newspaper superimposed on top of it. Various shots of celebrated conjuror / magician, Robert Harbin, doing a trick with a newspaper. He pretends he is a passenger on a tube train. As more people get on the tube and squash into him, he tears the paper into smaller bits to read. The joke is as the man gets up to leave, he shakes his paper and we see the pages have magically joined back together again.
