The without-equal illusionist died today at 86 years old in a Buenos Aires province city of Tandil clinic where he had been hospitalized due to a pneumonia.

Héctor René Lavand was born on September 24, 1928 and became a true master of magic although he had only one arm, turning his performances into theatrical, emotional presentations.

René Lavand gained fame during the 60’s when he decided to bring his magic to BA City’s main theathres such as the Maipo and the Tabaris.

His “It can’t be done any slower” card trick became a world hit. He was invited to the Ed Sullivan Show and The tonight Show hosted by Johnny Carson in The United States. The Argentine magician also performed in Las Vegas, Hollywood, Europe and Japan.
