The above 1975 publicity photo was used in the run up to the live broadcast of “World of Magic.” It does a nice job of bringing up the parallels of Doug and Houdini in their respective cells and, above all, places in history.
We also get an ultra rare glimpse of Doug in the rehearsals for the illusion in a warehouse setting. The tension is palpable! Can you feel it?
In other news, I will be taking a brief hiatus from the site. My wife is due to give birth this week, and understandably that will be taking up a bit of my time over the coming weeks. Life has its own share of magic and wonder, and this is no exception. See you guys soon!
