Plot Summary: Ricky Jay is a world-renowned magician, historian, collector of antiquarian books and artifacts, and actor (often a mischievous presence in the films of David Mamet and Paul Thomas Anderson) - and a performer who regularly provokes astonishment from even the most jaded audiences. "Deceptive Practive" traces Jay's achievements and influences, from his apprenticeship at age 4 with his grandfather, to such now-forgotten legends as Al Flosso, Slydini, Cardini ("the best act I ever saw") and his primary mentors, Dai Vernon and Charlie Miller. Featuring rare footage from his 1970s TV appearances (doing 3-card Monte with Steve Martin on The Dinah Shore Show) and told in Jay's inimitable voice, this is a remarkable journey inside the secretive world of magic and the small circle of eccentric geniuses who have mastered it.
