If you appreciate showmanship, wit, ingenuity, and smooth patter and presence, Harry Blackstone, Jr. encompassed all that and so much more. He was one of the United States’ finest magicians of our time. I am fortunate to have seen him live on stage, when I was in my teens. He held the stage with his deep deep voice.
He left a lasting impression, and for this, I remember him today, on this, the 19th Anniversary of his death.
