I came across this fun and nifty eleven minute retrospective on Doug from You Tube. In it, Canadian magician Wes Barker talks about his love of Doug, and gives us an enthusiastic history of Doug’s life and career. All with a little live commentary on some of Doug’s most famous illusions.
What struck me the most, is that Barker discusses how he was too young to be aware of Doug when he was at his prime. It took a little thing called You Tube to show him what Doug meant to magic and entertainment history. Barker has indeed seen the light!
Doug’s work is very prevalent on You Tube and other internet sources. For that, we should all be grateful he continues to be rediscovered almost 35 years after he retired.
