Michael Ammar once wrote that one of the principles key to making a magic effect memorable to an audience is to alter an object magically and then give it away in its altered state. A souvenir of this kind will be treasured forever and there's been perhaps no better example of this kind of effect than one in which two playing cards, signed by the spectators, are magically fused into a single card. Not glued or fasted in any way; they actually become one single card.

Doc Eason took a concept by magician Christopher Carter and created a neo-classic of card magic that is in use by close-up magicians the world over and you'll see a real-world performance and a meticulous explanation of the workings by Doc himself. J. J. Sanvert is next with a version where the cards first apparently fuse face to face and then, finally, back to back and given away as a strange souvenir. Carl Andrews presents a version, perfect for strolling performers, where two cards - one signed on the front, the other on the back - fuse together. Garrett Thomas presents his version of the Eason concept with some beautiful touches that make this a truly magical experience for the participants while Etienne Pradier closes with a light and comedic routine that still packs a magical wallop and once again, leaves the spectators with an inscrutable souvenir.

Any magic trick that can leave an indelible mark in the minds of an audience deserves consideration by any magician that performs for people in the real-world and one would be hard-pressed to find a piece of close-up magic that does the job quite as well as the performance pieces you'll discover on this DVD.

It's always fascinating to see another person's point of view on any one subject. It's interesting to see how different people can see the same thing in different ways. That's one of the cool things about the "World's Greatest Magic" series by L&L Publishing. While on one hand it feels like a way to recycle product and make a few quick sales, on the other hand it's good to have all the best minds on the same plot.

If you read more reviews from me regarding the "World's Greatest Magic" series, you will find that they all start with these first few sentences so that each review will have the same background and foundation. So on to this particular DVD: Anniversary Waltz.

"That's How I got it!!!!!!!!!" Really . . . all of you just had to use that stupid joke. I'm gonna barf. Now that that's done, if the card fusion plot intrigues you at all, then this is worth your while, especially at the asking price. However, let me point out a few things.
