The title of our new book is based on the one man, Dai Vernon, who pulled the wool over Harry Houdini’s eyes. Here’s the trick.
In 1922, Harry Houdini was the most famous magician in the world. The forty-eight year old Houdini was so confident in his knowledge of magic that he had an open challenge to all fellow magicians – ‘show me any trick three times in a row and I’ll be able to tell you how you did it.’ At the Great Northern Hotel in Chicago, Dai Vernon took the great Houdini up on his challenge. But Vernon would not repeat his trick three times in a row – Dai Vernon repeated it SEVEN TIMES and Houdini could not get it!
