Re: Looking for info on Joseph Fenichel

I used to see Joe Fenichel quite often at the after meeting shows when the S.A.M. held their meetings at the Barbizon Plaza Hotel in NYC. In those days a number of wives would sit outside the meeting room and chat during the meeting and go in for the after meeting show. I think I was always the only...

[font:Comic Sans MS][size:11pt] Well, that didn't work. Let's try another way.

Re: Sam Schwartz passes

[size:11pt] [font:Comic Sans MS] I'm saddened to read of Sam's passing. He and Selma were a lovely couple. Here's a picture of them at our house in May of 1957. It's black and white, and 51 years old, so it's not the best, but for those who didn't know them back then, you'll be able to get an idea o...

Re: The Professor

I don't see what Vernon's sex life has to do with his magic. I doubt it had any affect on his magic. If anything, I would say that his obsession with magic affected his sex life. I understand that human nature is such that people are often curious about every aspect of the life of someone they have ...

Re: Cardini thoughts..

My parents and the Cardinis were friends. I once spent 10 days with Swan and Dick while my parents were out of town. Swan kept a collection of articles written about Dick, and their act, and she allowed me to look through them. I saw articles mentioning performances in Vaudeville as early as 1924.

Re: Cardini thoughts..

Im not trying to start any fights here guys.. ha ha :) Lucky for you that Swan is not alive to respond to your question, for a fight is exactly what you'd have on your hands. :D Sorry, but I was so tickled by the thought of Swan's reaction that I had to comment. Thanks for making me smile. :)

Re: Herb Zarrow passes

I've known Phyllis and Herb literally for as long as I can remember, and I am deeply saddened by Herb's passing. Herb was a genuinely gracious person and a true friend, whose friendship went beyond the scope of magic. He was a good friend to my parents, and after they passed, remained a friend to me...
