The above newspaper ad comes from 1964, and shows just how enterprising Doug, or Hendoo, was at just 17!
Not only was he going to be opening that afternoon’s screening of “The Lone Ranger and The Lost City,” it was going to be a repeat performance no less. These were the early days where Doug was a journeyman magician honing his skill wherever it would take him!
If only movie tickets still cost the same today….
Special Thanks to Michael Johnson and his excellent book “Magician Doug Henning Collectibles Guide.” To purchase, please visit the link below:

Thanks Neil – more proof that Doug Henning was a tradesman with 10,000 working hours under his belt before he stepped on the Royal Alexandria Theatre’s stage.
