Maurice Fogel Cheating the Gallows

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.

I am doing some research for a show I am putting together and looking for any video footage of Maurice Fogel doing the Gallows. Does anyone know if there is footage of this to be seen? Any info would be great . Thank you all in advance.

By Gallows...you mean? The Russian Roulette routine with plates? I've got something, let me research.

Fogel did Russian Roulette at the SAM Convention in New York in 1978. Not the most exciting presentation, however I think most bullet catching is hogwash in terms of excitement.

I do not believe such footage exists. Chris Woodward (Fogel's son-in-law) has searched extensively, and that is not among the material he's found.
