RIP: Tihany

Postby Dustin Stinett » March 2nd, 2016, 1:48 pm

Tihany, one of the greatest showmen on the planet, has passed away at the age of 99. His enormous tent show--a combination of magic and circus spectacle--has thrilled millions for many decades. Our condolences to his family, friends, and countless fans.

He was on the cover of Genii, I believe in the mid- to late-'80s. I think the cover was green? And there was a good story about his magic life included.

Joe:

Was there maybe a second cover for Tihany? This would have been in the '80s I think. Thanks.
