Spend your lazy Sunday watching this documentary on the life and career of sleight of hand master Dai Vernon - Genii Online

If you’re stuck at home this weekend looking for something to do, take 45 minutes out of your day and check out Dai Vernon: The Spirit of Magic, a documentary about the “Professor” of sleight of hand archived on YouTube thanks to Historica Canada and embedded above for your entertainment. The film follows Vernon’s life, from obsessing over Erdnase’s The Expert at the Card Table as a child, to fooling Houdini, to his last days at the Magic Castle. It’s interspersed with clips of interviews with Vernon himself, as well as some of magic’s most prolific historians and entertainers.
