Since Prof. Jack Miller (1884-1962) began performing magic with his Hold-Out he has fooled many of the best magicians with his routines and techniques. The original ad for his Hold-Out read, "A revolutionary principle! Fast, clean and smooth! Never in the history of magic has there been anything like this! Hand empty at all times-yet balls, silks, cards et all appear and disappear in full view at the fingertips, as if guided by the invisible hand of Satan himself!"
On this DVD Alan "Ace" Greenberg, who was a fan of Prof. Jack Miller, demonstrates and teaches his rendition of three classic Jack Miller routines using the Hold-Out. You will learn: The Ball, Silk And Wand Routine, The Jack Miller Egg Bag Routine and The Sensational Rope Cut. You will also learn how to quickly make a Jack Miller style Hold-Out using items that can be easily acquired.
Includes archival footage of Jack Miller performing his Ball, Silk And Wand Routine and his classic Egg Bag Routine. Also includes additional commentary by Bob Fitch, Albert Lasher, Pat Page, Howard Schwarzman, Tony Spina, Sol Stone, Johnny Thompson and Meir Yedid. As a special bonus you also get a PDF copy of the classic Ed Mishell book Hold-Out Miracles.
