The Elusive Hindu

This is a fine illusion for the performer who carries with him a man assistant or for the woman magician who carries a girl assistant.


Performer dresses as a Hindu. He shows a Phantom Framework and sets it up two or three feet in front of the back curtain. He walks behind it and audience can see his legs behind the frame. He places a triangular top on the framework and then gets a three-sided parlor screen. He stands on the Phantom Platform and places the screen in front of him. Assistant now comes out, wearing a cap and mustache and carrying a small revolver in his hand. He fires the revolver at the screen, then walks up and removes screen to show that Hindu has vanished. He now removes his cap and mustache and shows himself to be the performer who a moment before was dressed as a Hindu and vanished behind the screen.
