Very Early “Henning and Mars” Publicity Photo

Doug and Mars

In the year and a half that I have been running this site, I have published A LOT of pictures of Doug and his career. But, the one featured above is one I had never seen before. It features Doug and his assistant, then girlfriend Mars Barrick, in a publicity still from the early 70s. 

Other than his sister Nancy, Mars was Doug’s first professional assistant and was there for many of his early successes. After their partnership dissolved, she would go on to form another magic double act with another of Doug’s assistants, Maya. So, wherever you are today Mars, “The Doug Henning Project” tips its hat to you in appreciation.

    I saw Henning and Mars perform at Center Island in Toronto in the early 70s. It was a free show for kids.Probably before he became famous.
