The Keys of Judah by Stuart Judah, Ed Mellon, James Swoger, Al O’Hagan(c. 1955) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Joseph Kolar invented what became known as The Seven Keys to Baldpate effect c. 1927 when he introduced it at a Thayer Night in Chicago. It was popularized and named by Annemann in his book The Book Without a Name. Kolar’s method involved the switch of a key, and since then it has had many variations.
This method used for these keys was actually invented by Mystico (J. Elsden Tuffs) from England c. 1943 and called Key To Thoughts.
Effect: You show the padlock and how only one key opens the padlock. Lock the padlock and hand all five keys to the spectator. They choose any four and leave the final one to you. Yours is the only one that opens the lock.
Nothing is added or taken away and you can do this close-up or on stage since it is a large, solid padlock. The keys are all different and no gimmicks to dispose of. Really wonderful effect.
