New York Daily News Interview-Dec. 1976

Today’s article comes from the promotional blitz that surrounded Doug’s second “World of Magic” special in 1976. 

In it, Doug talks about the special’s main illusions, “The Flaming Miracle” and the “Disappearing Elephant.” However, the juiciest part of the article comes when Doug contrasts and compares how Houdini originally performed the “Elephant in the Room” so to speak. 

He even teases knowing Bess Houdini’s sister, and his upcoming book “Houdini: His Legend and His Magic.”  A fascinating read overall, and a sign of exciting things to come!
