Welcome to my store
The 1982 Lecture by Steve Dushek
I made this video， just for my magician friends， in 1982. Some of you may remember that， back then， video recorders cost over a thousand dollars as did the big video camera required. And blank video tapes cost $25.00 each! I had no intention of selling my homemade magic video. However， a few of my friends showed my video at the local magic club. To my surprise， and in spite of the nonprofessional quality of the video， I was receiving a lot of magic orders from the club members…and reorders too.
My day job prevented me from accepting most of the lecture bookings I was offered， but at least I could offer to lend magic clubs my video lecture. There was no charge for the video because I received so many orders from the magicians who watched it. The videos were rarely returned right away because some of the magicians wanted to make copies of it. Some were ethical enough to ask for my permission. Over the years the majority of my magic tricks were copied by many people and bought by the magic dealers who I thought were my friends. I decided to stop selling my magic to any magic shops and only make my new effects available to customers that I knew and trusted. At this time， I lent my master video tape to a friend who wanted to make copies and sell them. I never received the promised royalties or had my master video returned. I could no longer make and send my videos to magic clubs or new friends.
When I wanted to convert my old video to a DVD， my friend Alan Molod had a legal copy of my video and sent it to me. Scott R. Sullivan converted it to a DVD. My daughter Renee and her husband Chris completed the project. My friend Tony Baronio was a big help also and had the caricature on the cover made for me. The DVDs were sent to my old friends and my new friends. Once again orders for the magic started coming in. The purpose of my lecture was for magicians to see how the tricks were made so they could make them themselves. Few magicians have the time to do this anymore and my low prices probably make buying the tricks， already made， a wise choice for many magicians.
All of my friends thought I should sell my DVD. I had a small supply duplicated so I could see if anyone was interested in magic tricks from a magician who retired from magic many years ago. It seems there are.
There are 18 magic tricks taught on the DVD and a few more tricks demonstrated. All of the magic tricks were top selling items for me year after year. There is no filler. The DVD is over an hour and forty minutes long. I do not sell my magic to any magic dealers. Since I don't sell wholesale， the savings are passed on to my customers. Being retired， I do not have a magic list or catalog. My DVD will show you some of my creations that are currently available.The Legendary 1982 Lecture DVD includes the following effects:
Waltzing Matilda – This is one of the most copied dancing， floating silk scarves ever invented. Learn the original Dusheck version and discover why it is still the best. This self-contained， gimmicked， silk is always under your control. It really looks like magic.
Coin/Card – Do your favorite coin assembly or use my routine. This special gimmick allows the audience to see the fourth half dollar really is under the playing card before it immediately vanishes and reappears with the other three coins. It really adds a lot to the climax of any routine.
Surprise – Allows you to produce a jumbo 3" coin at the end of your coin assembly or even your favorite packet card trick. You don't require special clothing or a closeup pad either. Do it standing up in short sleeves and amaze everyone every time.
Dusheck's Dollar – Fold a dollar bill in half. Place a letter opener between the folded bill and slit it into two separate pieces. Slide the two pieces apart and show them on both sides so there is no doubt the bill was cut. Just pull on the two sections of the dollar and it instantly， visibly restores.
Coin & Cord – A Chinese coin is seen tied to a loop of cord. The coin is magically removed from the cord and then returned to it in a very clean and natural manner. No shells are used and the props may be examined at the start of the effect and at the end of the routine.
