Inside article:

"THE MAGICIAN and the MOVIES" by Erik Barnouw.

Before Mr. Barnouw published his 128 page, Hardbound book by almost the same name ("The Magician and the Cinema"), he wrote a smaller version of the topic for the American Film Magazine.

Like the book, this Lead-in article discusses the extensive role Magicians played in the evolution of cinema. Magicians created the “trick film”, which laid the foundation for the special effects of modern cinema.

This article shows what Magicians were doing with moving images, magic lanterns, etc. long before the motion pictures.
