Daily Dose of Magic – Paul Daniels “Robert-Houdin’s Marvelous Orange Tree”

Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin (1805-1871) is considered the father of modern magic, and his writings inspired many of the magicians who paved the way for our contemporaries. Ehrich Weiss renamed himself Harry Houdini in honor of the man and Robert-Houdin’s shadow is still felt today. In this video, Paul Daniels does a beautiful routine based on Robert-Houdin’s “Marvelous Orange Tree.” I would say that he recreates it, but Paul does honor to the trick while presenting it, but applying his own light style.
