Johnny Hart (International Star of Magic) by Stephen Short, Johnny Hart(c. 2018) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
I’m not 100% sure why Johnny Hart had such am impact on me, but I remember being so mesmerized by his magic. He would sometimes perform the same effects as other world-class magicians but when they were in Johnny’s hands I swear he used different methods unique to himself, because the magic looked so much better. When you watched Johnny Hart you were inspired to work harder on your own act because he always delivered and made you want to do better.
Stephen Short has put together an amazing account of the life and magic of Johnny Hart which will surely be loved by any one who was lucky enough to see Johnny, or just heard about this incredible performer. He truly was in a class of his own, and this book brings all the great memories I had of Johnny back. Thank-you Stephen for taking the time to put together such a wonderful tribute to one of the all time great performers of our time.
Details: From the moment Johnny Hart won the very first Magic Circle Young Magician of the Year Competition in 1961, his career took off on a rapid upward path, which never slowed down.
Harry Stanley became his mentor and manager, and although Johnny was a young man, still in his teens, his natural skills were honed, harmonized and finely tuned, so that he could perform faultlessly with an air of exceptional professionalism.
It was not long before Johnny Hart was in demand to appear on stage in variety shows and summer seasons, supporting some of the biggest names in show business. In between British engagements, Johnny carved a name for himself all over the world, including Las Vegas, where, for a one-year season he entertained at the Dunes, followed later by another extended period at the MGM Grand in Reno, Nevada.
Johnny also became a regular television celebrity, appearing on Sunday Night at the London Palladium. And in America, he was televised many times on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Johnny’s massive popularity constantly kept him in demand, and he remained at the peak of his career for over thirty astonishing years. This book reveals how a modest college student from Preston, via a path of dogged determination, energy and unbounded talent, became one of the greatest British-born international magicians there has ever been. This book will be a magnificent addition to any magician’s library and will provide an insight into Johnny Hart’s fabulous career.
