Sid Lorraine (1905-1989) recalls early memories of Dunninger and his impressive two-hour illusion and mentalism show from the early twenties in this installment of The Magical ChatterBox.

Description of his set, his ads in The Sphinx, his rope trick and a bold handling of the spirit slates.

Great read. Thanks.
Rope trick sounds great for stage.
Not sure of needing a glass and a table for the slate routine. Sure he had better ways later on.

Dunninger was a major theatrical attraction for many years. In the mid-1920s and on he was on the Keith Albee vaudeville circuit with others like Madame Herrmann and Frakson either ahead of him or behind him.

Sid's back with more Dunninger memories, in particular his thoughts on the subject of exposure...

Paul might be the only one reading these, but Sid's back with still more Dunninger in Mentalist, Magician... or, both?

James, a little late to the party. But thank you for these links to Sid Lorraine's blog and the great Dunninger. It is always inspiring to read the stories of great legends of our art...
