David Solomon is all set to release an extremely exciting 2 disc DVD set which is a must for all lovers of card magic. Its a brand new documentary entitled “Marlo – It’s All in the Cards” and not only features the Maestro himself but many of the inner Chicago cardician group. There is previously unseen Marlo footage, a full documentary of his life in card magic plus a host of renowned Marlo students performing material. A full list of contents at the bottom of this post.
Dave filmed some of the trick section when I was in Chicago for TSD and showed some of the Marlo footage, from the previews I have seen it is a wonderful collection of footage for those of us who never had the opportunity to meet Marlo, and also for those that did! I believe that he is only selling direct through his web site, www.davidsolomon.net where the 2 disc set can be pre-ordered at a discounted price.
