He was so good. I got inspiration from an effect I seen Scarne do in that video. I do it sometimes. I have my own handling, and in his honor, have titled it "From Scarne, with love." This is the effect.






Here he is in a commercial. Check out the effect he does at the end.

Oh man.  Love me some Scarne.  Scarne's aces were a huge driver for me when I first got into magic.

Scarne (born Orlando Carmelo Scarnecchia) served as a technical adviser in the movie, The Sting, starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford.  Scarne also doubled for Paul Newman in the flick in scenes that involved card manipulations, fancy dealing and deck switching.

Cardshark Quixote that was fantastic. Thanks for sharing. Scarne is someone I am just now having the pleasure to learn. Been at magic now for just over a year and there is so much magic to learn and so many great magicians works to be explored.

I think I've shown this before. Shortened version and not in anyway comparable to Scarne but a lot of fun.

That was great Gareth, thanks for sharing! I've spent so much time learning just card magic and just a bit with coins, so now I'm starting to really branch out into more coin magic and the general sleight of hand techniques I'll need. It's awesome and super intimidating at the same time. [tongue]

Thanks really enjoyed that Scarne was one of my first inspirations I found one of his books at the library and I caught the magic bug.
