Arno was an American club magician best known for his debonair style, his masterful cigarette routine and his highly entertaining pickpocket act.
Assisted by his wife, "The Lovely Zola", Arno performed the classic nighclub card and manipulation effects. The highlight of his show, however, was his "Fantasy In Smoke", a stunning lit cigarette manipulation act that even included some sleight-of-hand by Zola.
In his longer shows, Arno also did a comedy pickpocket routine, which was a great hit with the society crowd.
According to one of their publicity pamphlets, he and Zola toured Europe as part of Jack North's "Broadway Vanities" vaudeville revue.
