The Magic Detective Podcast

Ep 39 Charles Morritt The Mystery Man

December 17, 2019

Charles Morritt was a very prolific inventor of magic illusions. He created some very stunning effects in the late 1800s right into the early 20th Century. He is also credited as the man who helped Houdini make an elephant vanish!
