Candid Doug and Shark Photo


This past weekend at the Hollywood Bowl “Jaws” was screened with live orchestral accompaniment. While I wasn’t able to attend I have the next best thing right here in today’s post.

This photo was taken during preparations for the 1979 Hilton Television Special. The illusion itself was only performed once due to its precarious nature. As you can imagine, live sharks don’t always make the most reliable magic assistants. 

Special Thanks to Steve Zigmont.
