Which Docc Hilford routine is your favorite and which dvd or book can it be found?

Mine is Docc's Perfect Mental Club Act. I am thinking about getting Black Moon,

What is your favorite Docc effect?

It's probably been 20 years since I've seen him, so I guess there's something to be said, based on what I remember.

1. His ball and tube was a miracle in his hands. No fancy brass tube, just the slum magic prop we all have seen and probably used.

2. I'm not, generally, into cute magic, but I recall a trick with rhyming poetry that was charming and fooling. I can't find it now.

Not much help, I realize, but it's what I recall.

Docc Hilford has a cool little subliminal card effect which you can see here:



I've always enjoyed this kind of effect and have previously shared it on the forum. Intensely Magic mentioned Docc's presentation of the Ball and Tube, well I've never witnessed him perform the effect but I read his booklet and found it extremely thought-provoking. In fact I may purchase a ball and tube at some point in the future as Richard Busch also teaches a version of the trick in his book 'The Busch Effect'.

Docc strikes me as a great thinker and versatile performer, and he certainly understands the power of creating winning presentations that involve and intrigue his audience.

I like that, there are a lot of things I like about that presentation, but that's just Docc being Docc lol.

Thanks for sharing that clip !
