Hello, I find Mr. Turner to be truly inspirational.

Apparently there is a film about him, "Dealt," that has been discussed on the internet for years.

If this film exists, and I hope it does, would anyone have information about how to see it (for a fee of course).  Yes I did check the usual sources including IMDB, but the conflicts are myriad.

There is so much information on the internet about this putative film that it has become a Gordian Knot of misinformation.  (typical for the internet at times)

Any thoughts are appreciated.  Thank you!

Have a nice weekend to all.

"Dealt" is apparently still being edited. Go to Dealtmovie.com for info. You can still fund the effort (I believe) and be in line for the download when it is released. Turner also had some explanation video shot and it might be released as a separate offering. There are teasers on Youtube.

Thank you Kingman and RayJ.

Man, all they have to do is contact me and I will be happy to help with ANYTHING that gets this film released.  Including cleaning bathrooms.

It does not look like donations are possible any longer... but, just in case... I will keep checking!

What a wonderful person Mr. Turner is.  I can't wait to see the film.

You might be interested in the Richard Turner Penguin Lecture that just aired.  He talks a bit about 'Dealt'.

Although I have you warn you with regards to the stuff he teaches, if you're watching it to learn quick tricks or some techniques, you might want to look elsewhere.  As he says, there's nothing there that you can walk away with after only 1 week, or maybe 10 years.

That said, the best time to learn this stuff was 10 years ago, the second best time is today.  I spent about 2 hours just working on one aspect of the second deal he was talking about, instant (?) improvement.  A couple more decades and maybe I can get it to look half as natural as he does.  He gives some tips on mucking, bottom deals, a few routines, and talks about a lot of really fine points to think about in how to handle cards.

I'll be having lunch with Richard next week (I will be in San Antonio on business) and I'll ask him how close it is to being finished.
Richard is one of the nicest guys in magic.  He stayed at my house for a couple of days and we hung out a lot.  He is free with his teaching and a real gentleman.

Hello all,

Richard and I had lunch together last Friday.  I felt incredibly fortunate that he invited me over to his house, and let me just say that it was stunning.  Lots of incredible stuff, both magic and artwork. Antiques like you would not believe.
He tells me that the film is now being scored and should be out within the next three to four months.  He just returned from a 35 city tour of China, hired by the Chinese government!
Richard is one of a kind and there is no one, and I mean no one, like him.  He will be making his appearance on Penn and Teller this year (he was scheduled last year but had an accident while working out in the hotel, after his rehersal).  
All of that to say that Richard is doing well and the movie sounds incredible.  He fooled me again and again until I simply felt like a total layman again.  If you want technical expertiese, there is no one like Richard.

I signed up for an email update on the movie and I am very excited about it.  I can try to insert the email here.  


Okay no pictures, but the links are live.  However, please do not click on anything on the internet until you are convinced it is safe.  If you do not know a way to do this, PM me and I will show you.  I have tried them and they are safe as I write this.  But please be careful.  I am or was in the business and you do not want to click on anything without checking.

Once you are sure you want to open the links, for a PC and using Chrome (other browsers may differ), right click (means menu) and see how to open the link.  Again for PCs.

Asa Spades is Mr. Turner's son.  I think the film opens in Austin, TX.

Hope this helps!

I was an original Indie-GoGo contributor. When can we expect our fulfillment? Anyone have a clue?

Hi All, OP here.

So I am super excited to see the movie.

For anyone who is on Facebook (I am not endorsing it), the movie has a page.  

Amazingly enough it is called DEALT Movie

Facebook has been funky lately.  A friend of mine was hacked?  So... it's a caveat emptor thing without buying.

But the page has good information.

Hope this helps [smile]
