Card Mondor

Cover of Genii (1947)

Card Mondor (1922-2001) was an Australian magician and stage performer. A one time assistant with the Great Virgil, he gained fame as a performer in the United States, most notably for entertaining troops during World War II for the USO. Later also developed cabaret acts with his wife, dancer Donna Haynes.


In the 1940s and 1950s, he was involved in exploitation films, at one time working for Kroger Babb, presenting his film Mom and Dad and eventually securing the rights to distribute the film in Australia and New Zealand.

In his later years during the 1970s, Mondor was in charge of Aladdin's Magic Shop, in Melbourne, Australia.[1][2][3]
