British Pathe – Archive Magical Footage
December 27, 2009 Leave a comment
I love watching old archive footage of magical performances and was delighted to stumble across the website of British Pathe, a site which archives 75 years of British film making. Search for “magician” and “magic” and you’ll find dozens of performances from as early as the 1930’s.
Here’s a clip of a magician called Newman Mond performing a snooker table card revelation from 1939 –
Here’s another clip of magician know as Erikson (there are several clips of him on the site, including him trying to imitate Cardini) –
So friends, happy searching and enjoy.
