Al Saal was a well-known undertaker in Toledo, Ohio, and one of the star performers at early I.B.M. conventions.
Dressed in a Spanish costume and wearing a turned-up mustache, he also performed card and cigarette manipulations. He was one of the first to use fluorescent paint on playing cards, combining black art with card manipulations, gaining the title of "The Man With The Lights".
