When is a dummy not so dumb? When he's the one pulling the strings--at least psychologically speaking--as is the case between wooden-headed Fats and his ventriloquist partner Corky, masterfully played by Anthony Hopkins, in the 1978 fright-fest Magic. At the precise moment that Corky's voice-throwing act is poised to become a show-business sensation, he packs up Fats and heads to his boyhood home in search of the girl who, years earlier, broke his heart. As the longed-for female is played by Ann-Margret, Corky's motivation is easy for any red-blooded male to understand. Unfortunately oak-hearted Fats is not so sympathetic, and so begins the unraveling of Corky's consciousness as the part of his personality that he projects into the dummy creeps into and then takes over his entire being. Magic is one movie about a man with a talking doll on his knee that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
