Film Notes

A magician pulls a handkerchief out of his assistant’s mouth, and a large bowl from the handkerchief. His assistant asks him to put water in it; the magician uses his assistant’s arm as a pump, and water comes out of his mouth. When the bowl is full, the magician makes fish come out of his assistant’s mouth. The water and fish soon disappear, and the bowl turns into a shrimp and then into a lovely woman dressed as a clown. The magician then turns the girl into two, changes them into pieces of cloth, which he wraps around himself and then disappears.
