Geraldine Larsen/"Magic Lady and Boko"

Postby Larry S. » November 16th, 2017, 2:16 pm

While reading the memoirs of Jerry Maren, one of the original Munchkins in the Wizard of Oz film (he was one of the 3 Lollipop Guild members), I ran across a mention of a TV show "Magic Lady and Boko" where he accompanied Geraldine Larsen onscreen performing magic.

The memoirs are titled "Short and Sweet" by Jerry Maren; pg 68 and 68 contain 4 photos from the show. Pg 64 has some text concerning the show.

Another genre mention is how he doubled for Edger Bergen's 'partners' Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd in the film "Here We Go Again" (1942). There are some photos and discussion on pg 46 onward. It seems they wanted Charlie to dance with some girls, drive a car, etc., so a suitable double was needed.

I was able to borrow this book from my local library, so perhaps folks who'd like to see it can do the same. If I find any other genre-related items in the book, I'll try to add them here.
