Here is George Karger
, photographer of Stars of Magic
and who I believe had some LIFE
covers to his credit.
I was a bit bummed that there were no shots of Johnny Carson doing magic (or even just fiddling with a deck of cards), but here he is
doing something else I always wished to do (I live in a highly light polluted area so an investment in a good telescope is a waste). This is still a great shot of him for we Carson fans.
doing Milt Larsens act.
Anyone recognize this guy
? He looks familiar to me (there are a boatload of snaps from what appears to be the 1952 PCAM Convention in Long Beach, CA).
A Second Deal
from 1939. I wonder who this might be (his thumb looks longer than my middle finger).
described as a psychic.
Found these shots of Richiardis Sawing in Half:
The Sawing (gotta love the blood splatter on the backdrop).
Having a look.
Cleaning up afterward.
And finally, to see who is paying attention, a contest: The best caption for this shot
will win a DVD. Heres mine (which I actually used several years ago when talking about my companys executives): Having run out of fingers, the executive committee contemplates their options while hammering out the annual budget.
No politics (besides being a no-no, its WAY too easy) and entries can be posted, emailed or PMed to me but I will share them if I like them (anonymity guaranteed if so desired). Good luck and have fun!
