1- I'm looking for the show that was aired on TV (could be PBS, History, etc) that had a documentary about Dai Vernon. I know of one, which I own, that has a brief bit about him...Bruce Cervon talks about the time a beginner shows Vernon a trick and Vernon trashes him and when the neophyte dejectedly walks away, Vernon says, "You know what his problem is? He can't take criticism." I love that story. But anyway, that one I have (can't remember if it's History of Magic or Science of Magic.
The one I'm looking for is a bio about Vernon. I think his children were interviewd and didn't have kind words about him. That's the one I'm looking for. Anybody know which show this was?
2- Also, I was reading online (think it was here in Genii Forum, but can't remember) that there was a female Houdini (not Dorothy Dietrich). She was doing her escapes around the time of Houdini (I think). There was a poster of her making the rounds. I'd like to know her stage name and real name.
Thanks in advance,
