What the Hell Was Jean Hugard Thinking...
The guy knew his stuff, but some lines I stumbled across in "Modern Magic Manual" (pub. 1957) are just weird.
"If you want someone to do exactly as told, pick a man or woman with a fairly well rounded chin."
"Never select as a helper an individual with chubby fingers."
And I thought Sankey's accents were the strangest thing in magic!
