Merlin Double Sawing on Merv Griffin

The above clip comes from an undated appearance of Doug on the Merv Griffin show performing “Merlin.” However, since the show officially ran on Broadway from February, 1983 to August 1983, it is more than likely from around this time. 

What’s nice about this clip is that we have it at all. Scenes from “Merlin” are elusive as Bigfoot, and this one cropped up only a handful days ago on You Tube. While it features a standard double sawing illusion, everyone is in full costume and performs a moment of the scene in character with music.

So, if that doesn’t brighten up your Wednesday nothing will!
