Virgil and Julie

The first big illusion show I saw was Virgil and Julie in 1960. Are there any bios on these performers? I found an on-line reference which says " Julie decided after a while to write a book called The Great Virgil (this from The Last Night of the Hippodrome by Alan Clark). But I cannot find tha...

Re: thin model sawing

Thank you Richard. Recently, I was discussing seeing the illusion performed at the 1961 PCAM convention by John and Irene Daniel, and thought I remembered him saying it was his. My friend insisted that Virgil first performed it. I appreciate getting the correct answer.

Norfolk, Virginia on April 19th. This is going to be one of the most prized issues of Genii ever published. Not because of the 3D, which is certainly cool, but because of the interview and the Berglas material it contains. Congratulations Richard, you have done it again.

Re: Who is this? Wow!

My biggest dilemma with magic on video is that its always a given that everybody who appears in the shot is a stooge, because the magic is being performed for the camera, so angles are not an issue. Plus you only get to watch what the camera lets you see, which is not as much as it seems at first. I...
