Magicians on The Mike Douglas Show

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

Magicians on The Mike Douglas Show

Postby P.T.Widdle » December 30th, 2010, 3:58 pm

I just saw a great PBS special about the Mike Douglas Show. The array of guests he had throughout his 25 plus years...incredible, but I saw no magicians on the special. There must have been, yes?

I posted a note here shortly after his death. The thread will give you an idea of what a friend of magic Mike Douglas was.

Harry Blackstone Jr., Tom and Sherri and Mark Wilson . They were on a special Mike Douglas show about Magic.Around 1978 or 79.
Don Alan was on Mike Douglas too but by himself.

It's great there were so many magicians on the show. It's disappointing there wasn't even a single image of a magician performing on a one hour PBS special about him.

Any video of Scarne's appearances floating around? It would be nice to see something decent other than just remembering that embarrasing appearance on Tom Snyder's show.
