He was 102. Calvert died Friday in Lancaster, according to the International Brotherhood of Magicians. No cause was given. Hollywood’s Magic Castle said on its Facebook page Friday: “We are very sad to report that Mr. John Calvert, our oldest performing magician, has passed away at the age of 102.” Calvert impressed many of Hollywood’s most famous personalities with his sleight-of-hand tricks, and he invited some of them to perform in his stage shows. Among the stars he counted as friends were Cary Grant, Danny Kaye and Gary Cooper. His magic shows were often humorous and usually involved sequences such as firing a woman from a cannon and sawing volunteers with a buzz saw. His wife, Tammy, sometimes served as his onstage assistant. In his heyday during the ’40s and ’50s, Calvert performed regularly in Hollywood to star-filled audiences. He also brought his acts to Las Vegas and Broadway. Known for his robust physical presence, Calvert often flew his own airplanes and sailed the world aboard his yacht.

Rinema Lets You Organise, Share And Explore New Movies
After selection, the page threw up a Pinterest-like array of movies and asked me to rate them. You begin by rating at least 20 movies, so that the platform understands your choice of movies. I went upto 121, so lost was I! I also added some movies into my Want to watch list. In the next step, you can follow Taste Buddies or Rinema users recommended to you based on the ratings you just gave. Interestingly, it also gives a similarity percentage based on ratings for the common movies, through which I followed quite a few. Finally, I added some personal details to my profile and was set to go. My Profile sorted every movie I had rated into Rated and also into Watched, and the others into Wants to watch. By default, the platform has also created collections named Favorites and Own it but you can create collections like Inspiring, Hacker movies, etc. I am yet to make collections and this is going to keep me busy tonight. Besides, there is an interesting feature here you can export all this data into an excel sheet, as well as import it too through the Import/Export Data link. There are so many ways to discover movies in Rinema. Through Movies you can either browse through the endless array of movies displayed below or else run a filter through genre, language or release year. Another way to find movies is through Lists.
