Have you tried Googling Doug Henning on the Johnny Carson show or Bewildering by Doug Bennett video?

Some people actually have connection with television and network people, back in the day before consumer availability.

There is also a archive of all television programs that aired in the U.S. in New York City. Again connections help.

Actually I saw it when it first aired. I realized how it must be done. With a bit of thinking it adapted nicely to standup performance. Iused to doit in my lectures. Yes I know. But it does not use a wallet!

I recently had the privilege to see an old clip of Doug Henning on the Johnny Carson Show. He used a bracelet sized ring and a velvet cord. The cord stayed on the table yet the ring penetrated on and off the cord as he waved his hand over it. Anybody know what routine this is?


Where did you see it performed? I have the trick but lost the manuscript. I have a good idea of how it works but would love to see a performance. Thanks!

I don't know if this is the same as what is being discussed, but I found a note I wrote to myself years ago:

"Bewildering Bracelets (Petrick): can link to string & each other, but tend to break?"

Apparently Petick created and/or sold it.

FWIW

John,

Petrick of Petrick and Mia, are out of business and they got divorced. Petrick's effect is nothing like the Tannen Magic effect.

Tannen's Magic published a Stars of Magic series in printed form, with props way back in the 1970's, by notable magicians of the time.

One has nothing to do with the other. Petrick just used duplicate words for his title. He and Mia were not even in this country at the time Doug Henning was on television.

Doug Henning was a dear friend. I had the Bewildering Ring. I only saw Doug do it on the Carson show, in the early '70s. It looked great. But, I have never worked, seated at a table. I sold mine to a young lad, years ago.
