Keith Clark (1908 - 1979), aka Pierre Cartier, was renowned for his cigarette manipulator act, including performance at the Moulin Rouge.


He would use the name "Keith Clark" for French audiences, but for American shows he was billed as "Pierre Cartier".

Later in life, he was known as something of a recluse among magicians, mixing with the fraternity very little. Although in 1968 he appeared at the Flying Sorcerers' Reunion.
