Powell, Frederick Eugene. Vintage Film Footage of Magician Frederick Eugene Powell. Possibly unknown black-and-white silent film of the second Dean of American Magicians. Nearly 50 minutes of footage contained on three reels, showing Powell in the 1920s and 30s performing various feats out-of-doors in front of his elaborate center table, and on the stage of the famous P&L magic factory in New Haven, Connecticut, and also posing and talking with other notable magicians, among them Dr. A.M. Wilson, John Dittmar, and J.A. Petrie. The latter’s son, Tod Petrie, also performs the Phantom Tube. Among the feats Powell performs are the production of flowers from a paper cone (a la de Kolta), and the tambourine rings. Footage of other unknown performers also included. Several minutes of color footage showing a P&L Flowering Rose Bush, and of Dr. John Henry Grossman performing various tricks are also included. A later print, ca. 1950. With a modern DVD transfer of all footage.
