Miracle Flying Missiles. New York: George J. Cook, ca. 1950. A card is chosen from a jumbo pack, which is placed in a holder on a table. A faux gun is pointed at the table. As each imaginary shot is “fired,” flowers fly off of the plant, a wand and handkerchief drop off of the tabletop, and cards fly out of the houlette leaving only the selection behind. Table 32” high. With all accessories, and leather carrying case, the interior labeled with the inventor’s name. Working. The dangerous-but-effective precursor to a popular effect known as Jumbo Sidekick, the prop operates via a concealed motor which heats several copper wires to red-hot in rapid succession. As each wire breaks, the various elements are activated.
Miracle Flying Missiles.
