"Delmer J. Frazier, ACL, of Oakland, Calif., is a man who can see the fine possibilities for plot ideas sticking out all about him in the current popular magazines. In his delightful film, Black Magic, he used an advertisement, but stories and funny papers are pretty fertile too. His story opened with the young lad of the house immersed in the mystic joys offered by a pancake flour company. ''Send Ten Wrappers and Get the Magic Wand!" He did, the wand arrived and the fun began. Fun, until his chum said the wrong magic words and started to disappear — wand and all. Only heroic measures on the part of our hero (and the cameraman) saved the day." Movie Makers, April 1935, 167.
"This was a well thought picture, but lacked a bit in photography to stack up with the prize winners." American Cinematographer, Feb. 1936, 73.
Discussed in "Closeups" (Movie Makers, April 1935, 167).
