Product Description

Hardback. Near Fine Condition.

Chung Ling Soo was not only a great magician and illusionist, but an enigmatic personality whose fantastic impersonation fooled millions, just as thoroughly as did his greatest stage mysteries. His story is told by Val Andrews in a racy, exciting and sometimes moving style. The story progresses from the time young Bob Robinson and his diminutive wife ‘Dot’ played small-town American theatres, to the tragic day in 1918 when Chung Ling Soo was shot and killed on the stage of the Wood Green Empire in London. Only long research and consultation with Soo’s son, Hector Robinson, has enabled the author to bring you this vivid story of a man, a magician, and an era of the past. Chung Ling Soo was a tremendous publicist and his theatrical posters are among some of the finest and most colourful ever produced. The pages of this book are interleaved with more than four dozen full colour reproductions of these magnificent posters.
