I am an avid fan of Doug Henning and was wondering what memorabilia people have.

Anything rare? Anyone have any of the old stage props?

Thanks!

Thanks! Off the top of your head, do you remember any of the other Henning props that have come your way?

I saw Doug Henning do a stage show in Springfield, MA., when I was younger. I
still have the program from the show. (Not autographed.) I don't know if it is of any value. Is such a thing collectible?

I have several photos taken during his show in Akron Ohio about 1976. I worked as newspaper photographer so they are high quality 11 x 14 photos. Someday, I may get book of all the photos put together. I also have a photo of Doug signing a photo of him (NBC NEWS photo) with Houdini poster behind. No doubt about this signature on that photo!!!
A very personable and genuine person.

I have his broadway programs and some letters for when dad was building the LBC for him [for his broadway show]. One which he never auctioned off when he retired. I wonder what he did with it. . .

The other day I met a local magician who has the actual original hand drawn artwork for Doug's Spellbound show in Toronto at the Royal Alexandra Theatre. This was the show that became "The Magic Show" in NYC.

If you are interested in it I can ask him what he is selling it for. He also has a copy of the prospectus for this same show..it was sent out to get investors to back the program.

Again, let me know if you are interested in either and I can get some more details.

I have a collection of 25 Henning posters
Including A 43 x 83 Merlin and a huge Magic show poster.

I have two props, catching basket and a monkey production from the 85 tour.

I have a rainbow dancers dress, as well as the program thru out the years and other Henning business promotion items.

I was at the warehouse as they were selling all the props.

I even have a flier from Spellbound in the early 70's

Since Doug was from Canada, I was fortunate to tape a show in the early 80's off CBC tv, showing him practicing his show, and taking linking ring lessons from Dai Vernon! Smile

Harry Anderson has a poster of Doug Henning in his store bathroom! On the door to the bathroom is DER MANN IN DER KANN (poster of milkcan escape magician). How uncanny!

I have one of the sub trunks he used when he toured with "The Magic Show," an original broadway poster from "The Magic Show," and a Coin Pail he acquired from Ross Bertram.

Hi Cardiniman,

Does the coin pail you have include the Ross Bertram palming coins on the sides of the pail? Morrisey made some of the prototypes of the Bertram Pail and they are very close duplicates of the actual Bertram Pail. One of the differences is the palming coin and the lion's head that the handles are attached to. Just curious.

Hey Rudy,

Nope, this one does not have the palming coin on it. However, Doug got this one directly from Ross. I also have the paperwork to back that up. So I'm happy. Also, I e-mailed you to send me your address so I can send you the dead presidents for that magic I wanted (bottles and Betram cups).

I have the large program they used to sell at "The Magic Show," autographed on the first page: To Ed, Magically Doug Henning.

I was wondering if it would be worth anything to a collector. (If I get desperate enough that I need to sell it!) Smile Smile Smile

It's not "mint." There's some wear and a couple of the "costume" pages were colored in. But it is in pretty good shape!

Going through a box of papers and sorts, I came across the letter and contract agreement buying the custom built light bulb cabinet for the Broadway show. Really cool. It's in great condition.

I bought an autographed business card with Henning's sig on it at an auction a couple of years ago in Texas.

I need to get it reframed and off the construction paper it's glued to, but it's in good shape nonetheless.
I'm moving back to Vegas.....anyone there that can help me out in getting adjusted to the Sin City again!?!!?

I have a few autographed 8 X 10's, postcard sent to me typed and personally signed inviting me to his upcoming show in Ann Arbor, MI. I also have a stage costume which was worn in Detroit when he and Debbie were the guest hosts of a local show Kelly and Company. They did an awesome show with guests Bob Lund and Karrell Fox. It is unbelievable how small this costume is! I remember him being a small guy but ***! I will have these on display at our shop in Colon when we open (we will be temporarily open during Magic Week in August, planning to open full time in spring 2011)
