Tutorial Teaching Griffin O’Neal’s Oil and Water Card Trick

By Tom Interval

In 1982, child actor Griffin O’Neal played the part of a magician and escape artist in The Escape Artist. One of the tricks his character, Danny Masters, performs is Oil and Water, in which alternating red and black playing cards mysteriously come together.

A few years ago a friend asked me if I know how the trick works. I told him I do and said I’d be happy to reverse-engineer the exact moves Griffin did and put together a couple of super-casual video tutorials. This year I came across those old videos and thought they’d make a pretty good post for my Patreon patrons.

If you’re a magician who’s interested in learning the two short routines Griffin did in the film, check out the video below or watch it directly on my YouTube channel: youtube.com/intervalmagic. For the full video, please support me on Patreon. Thanks!
