• Short Summary

    The Magic Circle invites photographers to expose the secrets behind the tricks.

  • Description

    London.

    A story about magic tricks. Magician Alan Shaxon does a few tricks which include turning a walking stick into a cigarette holder and making water stay in a glass while it is upside down, his wife Anne is his assistant.

    Ali Bongo uses a ball and black cloth to make the ball seem like it is moving of its own accord. There are several slow motion shots to try and reveal the secrets. He ends by pulling handkerchiefs and socks out of a tube and underpants saying 'The End'. He also produces a bottle of alcohol from the tube and turns his wand into a Union Jack flag. Interspersed with the tricks are shots of the photographers taking pictures.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
