When, In 1931, the Annemann version of Seven Keys to Baldpate made its appearance, there were quite a number of club magioians who immediately put this novel effect in their programsĀ« More recently has been placed on the market the John Snyder version, doing away with a change bag. In the method given here, the latter version undergoes a prunning and the glmie is eliminated, as well as the effect and working being revamped into more practical form for professional use. As it stands now, the effect oan be followed easily and the method allows of conditions heretofore Impossible.

Several keys and a look are handed a spectator for examination. Only one key will open the lock. The performer locks the opened look into the lapel buttonhole of the spectator, and the keys are mixed in a borrowed hat by anyone. This person takes a bunch of small drug envelopes and drops a key into each and seals. They are placed in the hat and again shaken up. The performer may be blindfolded if desired, and reaching into the hat picks out an envelope at a time, tossing each aside until he comes to one he "feels" is the key. Tearing open the envelope he dumps out the key, and successfully f"ft* opens the look. And there is nothing wrong to . be found with the keys or look. /|

You will require 2 locks, a key to open each7 and 8 or 9 other keys that will not open either of the looks. Also have a stack of envelopes with a small bead in the corner of the top envelope. (Thanks to Mr. Frank Chapman)
