Richard Turner is the real deal. Pun intended. Turner is an absolute master with a deck of cards. On this DVD he shares some of his pet secrets.

Turner’s “Double Signed Card” routine is obviously geared toward the intermediate to seasoned card man. If you are a beginner with an interest in palming and other advanced moves, this DVD will show you how the work should look.

I must admit that I did not like the “Double Signed Card” routine as much as I enjoyed Richard and the rest of the DVD. The routine itself is too convoluted for my taste. If you were serious about performing this routine you should think about streamlining the handling.

But don’t let my dislike of the routine dissuade you from this DVD. The wealth of information passed on, in my opinion, is more interesting than the double signed card routine.

Not only do you get the routine as Richard performs it, but he also shows you some killer moves. Here is a list of what you can expect to learn: Turner's Two Finger Bottom Deal Force, Turner's Invisible Bottom Palm, Turner's One hand Bottom Deal Force, Turner's Two Card Display into Gambler's Palm or Full Palm, Turner's Diagonal Palm Shift to Full Palm or Gambler's Palm, Turner's Two Card Spin Around Side Steal, Card to the Wallet, Turner's Gambler's Cop and Hand Wash to Wallet, Turner's Signed Card to a Sealed Deck, Turner's Key Card Twist-out, Turner's Top Palm and Second From Top Palm, Turner's Simultaneous Top and Bottom Palm.

So you see this DVD is much more than a one trick pony. (I couldn’t resist.)

You can also think of this DVD as a little piece of magic history. There are letters from famous magicians, great photos and a wonderful 1987 interview with Dai Vernon. It is nice to see the Professor just as excited about magic towards the end of his life as he must have been decades prior.

Richard Turner is very sincere and enthusiastic about what he does. That sincerity and enthusiasm communicates well on this DVD.

Manufacturer's Description:

By adding another spectator and a few more moves, Richard Turner elevates the Signed Card Routine to new heights. Imagine an effect where two spectator's autographed cards, one from a blue deck and one from a red deck disappear, only to have both cards appear and reappear over and over again. The amazement of the audience escalates with each appearance of a signed card; from the performer's hat, under a mat, from a spectator's hat, a wallet, torn and restored, and from a sealed deck of cards. Titillating as it may already seem the grand finale explodes when the sealed deck is opened to expose the spectator's signed cards -- and it is the same card!!

Richard Turner's startling Double-Signed Card Routine is for the true sleight of hand artist. It can be incorporated into your existing show or utilized as part of a standup act or a close-up routine.
