Bob Fillman (?-1981) was a full time pro magician and ventriloquist.


The last 10 years of his life, he worked clubs in Australia. He also appeared at TAOM in the late 1970s.

He was known for the 'Fillman Principle' in which cards were laid down and one secretly turned over, but the magician could tell which one.

Fillman died of Hodgkins Disease in an El Paso hospital, his home town. [1]
