Exclusive 'Lost' Scarne Video ..

Great 'lost' Scarne video. About 18 minutes of Scarne at his best, displaying an array of card sleights and cheating methods to 'educate' the suckers in the military and prevent them from being hustled by fellow soldiers.

This was available on the web at one time, at Yahoo Videos, and then it was pulled for some unknown reason..

Thanks to Jim Canaday at the Magic Portal for spearheading the effort to find and restore this video to the magic community. I just 'happened' to have a copy embedded in one of my blogs which, for whatever reason, hadn't totally vanished despite the fact that Yahoo had changed the link. (I suspect it was saved in a temporary folder on my computer..).

Anyway, Jim and I managed to revive and restore it for the benefit of the magic community.. This is, to the best of my knowledge, the only version available anywhere on the web. If another one exist, it isn't available via Google or Yahoo search engines.

NOTE: To view, place your cursor in the middle of the screen, move it around slightly until you detect a link, and click..
