Nothing More Pathetic Than a Magician Who Has Lost it
21 May 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Sid Caesar does a great job as a magician, Lou Bundles, who has lost his touch. He becomes a laughing stock and is asked to step down from the act he has done for fifty years. He drops eggs, doves escape, he can't even do a simple card trick. Then one day, he purchases an ancient deck of playing cards. These cards have a mind of their own and can be manipulated to do almost anything. He has them perform a wedding ceremony, fly through the air and sail over the customers, and any manner of things. The problem is that he has not idea how this is done. He develops an act but never has real control. It is wonderful watching Caesar work. He was a fine actor in his own right. I think this is one of the better episodes in the series.
