This important video begins with a short documentary hosted by Dan Korem about Edward Marlo and the famed Schulien's where Marlo used to hold court. The documentary features Charlie Schulien, David Solomon, Danny Korem, and Jack Pyle. This program was originally released in 1982 and was the first video footage of Marlo to be made available. It was shot using broadcast quality equipment and is still considered the finest quality footage of the master in action. This offers a rare glimpse at one of the most important figures in 20th century card magic, captured while still in his prime.
