Ricky Jay + Michael Kimmelman Discuss Legendary Magician Matthias Buchinger

The fascinating story behind Germany's miniature magician

Matthias Buchinger was the original manlet. The 18th century magician measured just 29 inches and was born without hands or legs, but what he may have lacked in stature he more than made up for in talent. Join illusionist Ricky Jay and New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman as they discuss the enormous achievements of the tiny entertainer.
