I read in Phil Temples book Dante, The Devil Himself, he mentioned that Dante made a major contribution to Goldins Sawing a Woman in Half. Unfortunately, Temple did not go into detail. I would love to know more about what changes Jansen made. If Phil reads this, please contact me. I am working on a novel that features the great magicians of the past starting with Robert-Houdin and ending with Blackstone. I would love to include Jansens role in creating this Vaudeville sensation.
