-During his lecture on Charlie Miller at the 2007 MAGIC Live! convention in Las Vegas, Johnny Thompson made the claim that Miller was the originator of the vanish.

-While the face-up vanish was the original, it never gained traction. The face-down handling became "​the"​ Rub-a-Dub Vanish. Since then, several magicians have inadvertently gone full circle to develop face-up handlings of their own: these variants include Arthur Buckley'​s in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​14362/​Card+Control/​129|Card Control]]//,​ 1946, p. 127 (which Steve Beam reinvented in //The Trapdoor//, No. 9, 1985, p. 152), Jay Sankey'​s in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​13337/​Spectacle/​31-33|Spectacle]]//,​ 1990, p. 31, Allan Ackerman'​s in //Wednesday Nights//, 1994, p. 5 (utilizing the [[cards:​ultra_move|one-handed top change]]), and Tyler Wilson'​s in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​25315/​Magic/​204-205|MAGIC]]//,​ Vol. 14 No. 2, Oct. 2004, p. 86. While most of these face-up handlings are novel, Sankey'​s ended up being a direct reinvention of Louine'​s original technique.+While the face-up vanish was the original, it never gained traction.
