S.E. Giesbrecht Flaming Hoop Print

Today’s item resides, well, right above my writing desk. Now I can’t claim I have anywhere near the Henning collections that some people have. However, this S. E. Giesbrecht print was given to me this year while conducting an interview for my upcoming documentary on Doug’s life.  From what was told to me, these were…

Doug on the Disney Easter Parade

First of all let me say that I know the quality of these clips is well, really lacking, but hey it’s Doug and Debby performing on the Walt Disney World Easter Parade. What choice do I have? There’s some really good stuff to be had here. From the Zombie Ball to Metamorphosis, it’s really a…

Neil McNally on “Cult Radio A-Go-Go” this Saturday Night!

Hello Everyone! I will be appearing on the internet’s own “Cult Radio A-Go-Go!” this Saturday, December 15th from 9-9:30pm PST. We will be discussing of all things, Doug Henning’s life and career!

“World of Magic I” Press Releases

The following press releases are in anticipation of the first “World of Magic” special broadcast originally on December 26th, 1975. Each one is interesting in that while he had already appeared on Broadway, Doug was not yet the proven television commodity he would become. Oh, how one night would change all of that?   Special…

David Byrd “Magic Show” Poster Concept Sketches

In my recent travels across the internet looking above and beyond for new Doug treasures I came across these little seen drawings. David Byrd, the acclaimed poster artist, was recently offering them for sale (yes they’ve already been sold) via ardtgallery.com. They are the only time that I can remember seeing any art representing how…

Restored Zig-Zag Woman Cabinet

Collector Chip Romero recently sent this fantastic image over of Doug’s original “Zig-Zag” cabinet restored and ready for service! The illusion itself is a valuable piece of Doug Henning history, and it couldn’t have a more perfect permanent home.  Special Thanks to Chip Romero

Complete Merlin Video Recording

While “Merlin” may not exist as a proper cast album or have a professional video recording, there are “other” less magical copies out there if you know where to look.  Case in point, no one would claim that this recording that recently sprung up on You Tube is of the highest quality. But, it gives…

Farewell Illusion Sale Price List

The above item comes from Michael Whitecar, and is the price list that was given to all interested buyers from Doug’s farewell auction in 1989. It’s interesting to note how the general common misconception is that Doug gave away his illusions for very little to nothing. My apologies for the small print in the document,…
