  • Short Summary

    A sleight of hand trick is demonstrated in close up by the magician Professor Warren.

  • Description

    "Here's an easy one for you to amuse the youngsters with, after dinner. Just a cigarette paper - " C/U of Professor Warren's hands as he tears up a cigarette paper and rolls it into a ball. He then appears to open it out again intact.

    The magician demonstrates how the trick is done. He rolls it into a ball and places it in between the first and middle finger of his hand. He then tears up the other piece of paper. He pulls out the rolled up piece and prepositions it so that he can unravel it, he then drops the ball which he has made of the torn up bits on the table. Very clever. We don't see his face, just his hands. Story seems incomplete - there was probably another trick.
