Summary
Ricky Jay is a world-renowned magician, author, historian and actor, as well as a performer who regularly provokes astonishment from even the most jaded audiences. Trace Jay's achievements and influences, from his apprenticeship at age four with his grandfather, to such now-forgotten legends as Al Flosso, Slydini, Cardini and his primary mentors, Dai Vernon and Charlie Miller. Featuring rare footage from his 1970s TV appearances, this is a remarkable journey inside the secretive world of magic
