I may have read it too fast--did the N.Y. Times mention that Sid was on the Tonight Show demonstrating Gambler's cheats?
An obit in the N.Y. Times--pretty good, Sid!
Every year, I would be astounded at the way the public and the press bit into Sid's Houdini Seance hokum.
I think he did more to preserve the legend of Houdini than anyone else--even Ed Saint.
I visited him once in Holyoke and he visited me a couple of times in Hollywood. He started doing card tricks on one occasion--and he was good.
My condolences to his family and friends, particularly, Henry and Bella Muller.
