Several people here have asked for the full Straight Jacket Escape rather than the shorter version I put up under All Tied Up. If you have the time here it is.

Talk about grand Illusion, it does not get bigger than this, hanging from a parachute ride well over 150 feet in the air. Now that is a grand prop.

Here is the blurb from Youtube...
Dorothy Dietrich, often called "The Female Houdini" and World's #1 Female magicians and the first to be called the First Lady of Magic is an innovator in the field. Columbia University Press and Encyclopedia called her "one of the most noted magicians of the late 20th century. She is the first and only woman to accomplish the Jinxed Bullet Catch. She also does the Houdini Seances first done by Bess Houdini, then Walter B. Gibson and passed to her by him, which she does each year to honor Houdini at The Houdini Museum in Scranton often with members of the Houdini Family. http://DorothyDietrich.com or check out her page on wikipedia.

I will be putting other clips up as I get them. If anyone out there has her doing the Bullet Catch on "You Asked For It" with Rich Little, or the Canadian show out of Montreal called Autobus Du Canada with The Bullet Catch or the Vampire Illusion let us know. It was well produced as at the time and possibly still she was the highest paid magician ever to appear on Canadian TV. They promised to send us the clips but never did. I think she was on three different shows of the series.

We are thrilled we were able to bring The Grim Game to the world! Thanks TCM.
