The Best Kept Secret in Magic
  • The Art of Ventriloquism Documentary DVD


          Hosted by Dai Kornberg and featuring George Schindler, Dan Ritchard and the legendary Stanley Burns

          This fascinating talk show/documentary was produced in 1979 as a part of New York University's "University Broadcast Lab." It was originally distributed by WNYC-TV and WNET-TV, both New York Public Television affiliates. Broadcast in the New York area only four times over the course of 1979, this program has been unavailable for many years. The original videotape master was destroyed, but a good copy was located, digitally re-mastered and "cleaned up" for this exclusive re-release on DVD. 

          Join host Dai Kornberg and his guests Dan Ritchard (author of "Ventriloquism for the Total Dummy"), George Schindler (author of "Ventriloquism: Magic with Your Voice") and the legendary Stanley Burns (author of "Other Voices: Ventriloquism from B.C. to T.V.") as they discuss and demonstrate "The Art of Ventriloquism." Folks, this one is a real collectors item. Stan Burns relates a brief history of ventriloquism while giving practical demonstrations with his talking hand, his figure "Bruce" and "Bruce's" figure, little "Cecil". George Schindler - now Dean of the Society of American Magicians! - also demonstrates a number of vent novelties from his unique vent business, "Show Biz Services". Finally, Dan Ritchard "bats them in" with his by-play with his bird character "Conrad" and his amazing telephone voice technique! You'll be amazed to hear the person on the other end of the imaginary phone call tap-dancing!

          This fascinating program will be enjoyed by ventriloquists and laymen alike. And it's so good to see dear old Stan again!

          This outstanding program runs 25 minutes. You may own it for only...
