Kreskin, still amazing, June 2008

Posted by kreskin On July - 9 - 2008

National Post, Published: Saturday, June 07, 2008

COBOURG - ...A former road manager for The Amazing Kreskin wrote a movie script called The Great Buck Howard, about a celebrity mentalist who got his big break on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, but whose life later sank into bitter anonymity. From the oversized glasses to the corny catchphrases, the character played by John Malkovitch is Kreskin to a tee, except spiteful, mean and a drunk. Both have flirted with celebrity greatness…although only the real one has a habit of offering his mentalist services to the police. The Times of London, in its review of the premiere at Sundance in January, said the movie tells the tale of an "ageing 'sacred monster' with pretensions and demands far in advance of his current status," and that Mr. Malkovitch "ladles on the cheese to entertaining effect..." Lesser men might have been angry, but when it opens later this year, The Amazing Kreskin will be The Great Buck Howard's primary booster. "Who would have ever dreamt it in one lifetime?" Mr. Kreskin, 72, said in an interview before a show this week on his tour of southern Ontario. The interview began with the famously vigorous handshake, in which he squats to protect his back and delivers a half-dozen solid pumps from knee to chest, but very soon became calm and serious, so much so that it was unclear where the schtick ends and the man begins. "Something's happened to conjuring, or the art of magic," he said. "It's very, very sad, and Carson -- whom of course I knew well because I did 88 shows with him, which is more than any guest -- would have been despondent. He used to say to me, 'Kreskin, if this ever happens it'll become movie making.' Who'd have ever dreamt that magic on TV now would be replete with trick photography, use of stooges, altered situations, and groups watching the magic that are actually paid actors and actresses? I have not seen a magic show on television in the last one year that did not have trick photography involved. It's going to ruin it for the public. You know what the feeling is, behind the scenes in Hollywood now? That they are really betraying the public. Because you have never had Carson doing that, or Letterman doing that, or Ed Sullivan doing that.... And I warn people. I warn everybody going into the field: Don't stoop to that level, because you could jeopardize your future…" He had already guessed people's birthdays and wedding dates…inconceivably pulled a glass of water from an empty sack, and was halfway through the "hidden cheque" trick, in which he invites a select group of audience members to hide his paycheque for the show anywhere in the auditorium, and he then finds it by reading the thoughts of a person he chooses to guide him around, whom he leads by a handkerchief they are both holding… “All through the years, only those who know me well have the remotest idea what I go through doing the cheque test. I mask how I feel about it. When it's over, it's not that I need an intermission, but if I were drinking, I'd be an alcoholic..." How does he do it? Who knows? He obviously did not see where they put it; he was backstage with three others as witnesses. It is not inconceivable that the audience contained an associate, but he has a standing offer of $50,000 for proof of such -- a promise that was even once unsuccessfully tested by a civil court. Maybe he can sense the location from the body language of his chosen subjects. Or maybe he is watching the audience, studying their eyes, although surely everyone is trying to be discreet. Whichever way, it is pretty cool to see, and perhaps the mechanics do not matter. As he puts it: "For those who do not believe, no explanation is possible."

Scott Javins, Murder Victim Found

Posted by admin On October - 18 - 2007
In one of the most bizarre experiences in Kreskin’s career, a breakthrough in a murder case took place this weekend, October 12th in Terre Haute, Indiana. The background is that on May 24, 2002, a young college gentleman by the name of Scott Javin disappeared soon after he had called his parents from a location not far from their home, letting them know he was coming home soon. All traces of him and his car disappeared and no clue of any kind has been uncovered in the past five years. In a desperate cry for help, a group brought Kreskin in on May 14 with the hope of raising interest in a case that had gone cold. Obviously police could not sustain all these years an investigation when no significant clues arose. In television and radio interviews as well as in a part of Kreskin’s concert, he alluded to the case and that somebody out there, hearing or seeing him, may have re-awakened within themselves, some memories that were significant. Within a day or so, after the performance, a gentleman came forward who contacted one of Kreskin’s representatives in Indiana and then the police. With a conviction he had heard in the past somewhere, remarks that he felt were now credible as to where the car was. It was almost as if Kreskin’s presence and appearance had re-awakened this memory. The police had taken this information but were not eager to move with it, since he no further evidence to back up the statements. The place that he described in a river reservoir area was never really thoroughly searched; in spite of his personal, absolute conviction. Now almost a half a year later, an elderly fisherman with some friends saw an item dropped in the water, including a motor off of some boat or what have you. He dove under water to locate that and came upon three cars. He became suspicious of one of them because he found a shirt when he reached into the car. When the police had their experts remove the car from the water, there was the body of Scott Javin, murdered. Live 10THI Television News in Terre Haute reminded the viewer that Kreskin had created national interest in the story. Needless to say, Scott’s parents have frequently expressed a bitterness that the police did not listen.
