Re: thin model sawing

You can see John perform the Sawing on the trailer for Http://www.womeninboxes.com a doc. by Dante Larsen's wife.

It is from the original "ShaZzam!" show, about 1970.

Re: Vic Lawson/House of 1000 Mysteries

Even this Canadian boy remembers that yellow covered catalogue. How I wish I had been able to order. Douglas Magicland catalogues were also great! Loved reading my Dad's popular mechanics for those "send in 10 cents" ads in the classified sections.

Re: Question about Pendragon's 360 degree levitation

Hey Gale, Bill, Siros did publish a revolving suspension in Genii magazine, yes a Super X style, but one that circled the body, not sure if right around or not. Leg controlled if I also remember.

Re: Robert Albo - Classic Magic Series

Thanks Larry for the prompt reply. I have always asked Bob to send me out a notice when the books are about to mail as it always takes a lot longer to get here to Canada. I have even asked Bob about sending them a better way, but this seems to be out of it. I assume you have ordered and are waiting ...

Would be interested to hear what the major parks are paying with regards to acts they are booking. Not the "house" magician that they hold open auditions for and then put on salary, but the act/show that goes in and does a long term deal, 4/day, 7 days per week. If there is any material on...
