OK, so let me break it down for you. The ad copy found on this site is more generous than you will read on the DVD case itself. You actually get a LOT of material on this product. This is good stuff, I promise! This will read weird, but it's true: Kenton shows you how to trick the audience into thinking the spectator has been hypnotized. He also shows you how to trick the spectator into thinking they have been hypnotized. Honestly, how he achieves all that is quite simple, really...but the 'entertainment' effect is very strong. Looking at the DVD's ad copy, you kind of get a 'bonus' trick, using a CS-gimmicked coin.
The performance AND the explanation stuff is good, clear and solid. This is fun stuff, applicable to family gatherings or even big, paid shows! The patter is fun and engaging. Kenton's overall demeanor is warm and accessible. I can't believe I've never used his stuff before now. If (like me)you've wondered about "light trance" material, you simply MUST get this DVD. As another reviewer here mentioned, though: there appears to be some "canned" applause during the explanation part that is odd and distracting. Maybe it is pre-recorded...heck, I thought it was coming from another room/stage nearby it was so odd and ill-timed. That was the only reason I deducted one-half star.
The effect/teaching? 100% solid gold material. This one is going in my FOREVER library right this moment! This is absolutely solid mentalism, with a timeless feel.

A Kenton Classic come to life in living color at last!

Filmed live in several locations...

Kenton's Original Time Machine effect was first revealed to performers in rare lectures and workshops. It became a staple (still is) of Kenton's performances. Time Machine finally made it's way into Wonder Words... but few performed it until NOW.

For the first time ever Kenton has allowed the filming of Time Machine in action.

What is "Kenton's Time Machine?"

Completely under the performer's spell, the spectator thinks of a time to travel to in a different country.

She holds tightly to a coin from the U.S. and a more modern time, and then goes into a trance...

When the spectator snaps out of her trance, she is shocked to find she is holding a coin from the place she traveled to in her mind ... and confirms the date on the coin is the exact year she imagined !

Finally, everything you need to know about this Kenton Klassic at last.

But that's not all.

Kenton also included his devious ways of apparently making his spectator forget their own name - sometimes twice in a row! Yes, you CAN do it. You'll see for yourself once you learn Kenton's sneaky secrets.


Kenton shows additional "touches" he uses when he performs his Time Machine effect. This includes invisible touches on the arm and head - in real time. No delays, no stalling. This is as direct as can be. For those wondering how it would look and play in real life - see for yourself at last! These secrets are essentials in all of Kenton's trance illusion and "Kentonism" performances. Now they can be yours as well.

You get the name forgetting sequence, Kenton's original hypnosis coin illusion as designed for television, Kenton's "Touched in the Head" and "Heightened Arm Sensations" - with no gimmicks whatsoever, and Kenton's Time Machine with touches not even explained in Wonder Words... fully revealed for the first time on this DVD.

You will see Time Machine performed live, with additional details and bonus work explained too. It's everything you could want and more so you can properly learn this effect and its many related sub-effects, all on one DVD. See and learn it live - as if you were right there yourself.

Running Time Approximately 32min
