MODERN LEVITATIONS By U.F.GRANT
First Time Advertised Exceptional Release
Never before has there been offered to the Magical Fraternity such a great and useful release. Just imagine... Six (6) New and Great Levitations of Humans that can be used under modern conditions. Light to carry. Easy to construct. Supreme in mystery.
So You Want TO FLOAT A LADY.
HERE’S JUST ONE OF THEM.
For a cost of less than five dollars you make up (no cabinet skill) a flat board or even piece of cardboard about 4ft. high and 17in. wide. If desired you can have this painted up to represent an idol or Buddha. Your girl assistant stands to the front of this and is seen to float out and upright, until her neck is resting on top of this board, then rest out in air, as long as desired, then floats back down to landing position. No metal or nothing heavy used. No extra assistant used, just your girl that floats and you stand several feet away. No wires, threads, rods,etc. Worked in full light away from all drops, screens, etc.... U.F. Grant has taken an old idea and given it a twist that makes a modern miracle with practically nothing. The revolving part idea was suggested by Bill Neff and works out grand.
By U.F. Grant.
Since the days of Robert Houdin the tour de force of big illusion shows has been the levitation, and this effect is associated in the minds of audiences with high-class entertainment at its best.
The ambition of practically every magician is to present a levitation as the featured attraction of his performance, and, heretofore, this dream has been realised only by a select few because of the expense and cumbersomeness of the equipment.
MODERN LEVITATIONS is an innovation as it brings for the first time audience-tested and thoroughly practical levitation methods which may be used under all conditions—in the centre of a ballroom floor, in one’s own parlour, or on the stages of the largest theatres. Herein are described in detail versions that will appeal to every taste and pocket-book, and which can be put into effect with a minimum of apparatus,and, in some cases, on almost a moment’s notice with material that can be found in any home.
I feel that the magic fraternity owes to Mr. U.F. Grant a debt of gratitude for the issuance of MODERN LEVITATIONS.
