"A trick by E. J. Moore, and a clever one. Liquid from a glass is actually poured into your closed fist,and the hand instantly opened and shown empty. The misdirection is perfect, and the apparatus is never suspected. Fine close-up trick."
That review was penned by John Braun, who knew a thing or two about fine tricks. According to one report, Moore pioneered the use of magnetic gimmicks in rope magic, both in the Link-King Ropes and the Instanto Rope tricks. These two effects sold more than 25,000 units.
